Since getting my first full-time job, I honestly can’t remember the last time I didn’t meal prep for my work week. Seriously. I know that sounds crazy but it is so habitual for me, it would feel weird not to. Why did I create this habit? For one I’ve always been health conscious. After graduating from USC, I knew I wouldn’t have the flexibility of cooking at home in the middle of the day. I also began to fully understand the value of a hard-earned dollar. I wasn’t going to throw money away at overpriced lunches when I could make just as satisfying meals from home.
Aside from the calories, added sugars, and unhealthy fats that come with dining out too often, you can save almost $3,000 a year by bringing your own lunch to work. And if you’re about to argue how “money is time,” then I’m so excited to show you how simply and quickly a meal prep on your day off can be!
I promised you one Youtube video a month so you don’t have to take as much time out of your busy schedule to read the latest deets on lifeinspandex.com. I missed the ball in February because sometimes even I struggle to create new habits and get outside my comfort zone. But, I reminded myself that we all start somewhere and sucked up my pride. I’m sharing a video of my meal prep from last Sunday to show you exactly how I prepare the food I bring to work in under an hour!
