so spring semester is starting soon and I had plans to try and start meal prepping again. I tried it briefly over the summer and liked it. I've got a weight lifting/cardio planned out already but I still haven't really paid too much attention to my diet. I guess my real question is, do any of you have meal prep plans/layouts you feel like sharing? If it helps, I like to shop for groceries weekly/biweekly.
You'll probably have to go twice per week unless you like freezing stuff.
I just grab a few pounds of meat and either bake or crock pot it, then break it into portions. Do the same for whatever carbs. Keep the fridge stocked on veggies and whatnot. Combine what you want for meals.
I'm not big on making full meals, I like to microwave my stuff individually. But most foods are good for at least three days in the fridge as long as you store them correctly.
I usually also cook dinner each night to avoid eating the same things daily. Plus it's hard to cook and reheat seafood/steak.
Lurker pretty much summed up what I do. I follow Renaissance Periodization for my diet as I am a fan of their templates/methodology. I keep my eating simple. I eat chicken that I cook in a crockpot and shred. Unlike Lurker, I eat canned green beans as my veggie. I go through 2 cans a day across four meals. My carbs come from rice or pasta and my fats come mostly from nuts or full fat cream for my coffee.
