The benefits of having prepared meals in the fridge are clear. If you are organised then it is possible to have healthy, nutritious and delicious food without needing to chop, cook or wash up pots, pans and plates every night. Cooking multiple meals in a batch is incredibly time efficient. If you make more than you need for the week then choose meals that can also be frozen. Many recipes can go straight from the freezer, into the oven and on the plate after 45 minutes. Structuring your meals in this way can also save a lot of money too, whether that is due to less food waste or not ordering food deliveries when you’re too tired to cook.

Healthy food choices are really important for your overall well-being. Getting enough fruit, vegetables and healthy carbohydrates provide essential nutrients and minerals that your body needs to function, and having a prepared meal plan will keep you from eating unhealthy foods.

There are high tech kitchen gadgets for just about everything you can think of. It is nice to have some things around to make life easier, but all you really need to make a basic meal prep is a knife to chop some ingredients, a pan to cook them in and something to stir everything while it is cooking.

What They’re Saying About Us

I started Personal Training with Recipe For Results recently with a very specific goal in mind, but I had no idea how to achieve it or if it was even possible. When I met Martyn he was very knowledgeable and encouraging.

I started Personal Training with Martyn as I had recently had a hip replacement and I was very overweight and unfit. I had been doing a gentle, boring routine for a while and lost some weight but needed motivation to increase my fitness.
