Meal prepping is a great way to save time, money, and improve your health, but meal prep for two people can be challenging because it is hard to find recipes that work for two servings. Many meal prep blogs are targeted towards the individual, although there are some aimed at families of four or more. However, there are many ways to meal prep for two! In this blog post we will share three tips on how you can make meal prepping easy!
Organising Your Schedule
One of the best ways to successfully meal prep for two is to make sure you are organised. When you are organised, the whole process will go so much smoother. You can start by planning out your meals for the week and what ingredients you will need. By making sure your fridge is properly stocked with all the ingredients you require to make your meals for the week.
Once everything has been prepared it’s a good idea to label what day you made the meal. This will help you to keep track and prioritise what needs to be eaten before it goes off!
Finally, it’s also a good idea to prepare for the following week by putting prepared meals in the freezer so they don’t go off. This will help to remain organised meaning you won’t have to do as much the following week, or you can build up a store of meals you can fall back on.
Finding Meals You Both Like
Make sure to plan meals that you both like otherwise you will find yourself cooking two different meals which will double, if not triple your time spent in the kitchen.
Plan in advance what you both like by building a list of meals which you can rotate each week and add to over time. This will save you time, money and the hassle of cooking two different meals every night.
Another point to keep in mind is using leftovers. It’s a great way to reduce your food bill and save time by cooking double the amount for dinner, then freezing some of it so you can easily make a second meal at another point during the week or even as a snack throughout the day.
Watching The Pennies
One of the most stressful parts to meal prepping is the budget. It’s important to take a look at your grocery bill and see where you’re overspending. You can also find ways to get the best value for money. Don’t always go for the branded food, look to try the cheaper option once in a while. Another good way to save money when food shopping is to try out supermarkets such as Aldi and Lidl. These are primarily cheaper supermarkets which can help you save lots of money when food shopping.
One good way to save is by making big batches of things like sauces, soups or pasta sauce as they can last up to three to six months in the fridge making it an easy go to meal in the future.
