In this current era of easy food-delivery it’s a cinch to have a restaurant you like have its food brought to you via a wide-range of popular phone apps. However, these foods often are not as healthy as cooking at home and cost a great deal more. Even if you save some money on delivery fees by going out you are still spending a lot of time sitting at restaurants eating products that are more processed than if you had cooked them.

In terms of the health benefits, money saved, and time that can be spent relaxing instead of traveling around to eateries, cooking at home is a smart choice that is very beneficial for health. However, cooking at home for someone with minimal experience can be intimidating. Thankfully, there are many meal prepping tips to help you provide food all week long.

3 Top Tips for Starting Meal Planning and Prepping

Should you be a bit inexperienced at cooking, that’s no reason to worry or be afraid of starting. Thanks to the internet there are a wide range of websites geared towards helping beginning-chefs get comfortable in the kitchen. For example, the website, “Make Use Of,” has a solid list of websites (both free and paid) that can offer guidance for people less-than-skilled at cooking.

Another fantastic resource if you need advice for planning-out and prepping your meals are meal kit subscriptions. A wide-range exist for a variety of food tastes from more general ones such as Blue Apron and Hello Fresh to ones geared towards specific diets (paleo, vegan, etc.) such as Sun Basket and Purple Carrot.

These meal kit services provide almost everything needed to make a tasty dish and include detailed step-by-step instructions. Many of them let you choose a meal that looks tasty and within the next week (on the delivery date of your choosing) it’s delivered right to your door–but unlike other food delivery services you get to actually cook this kind.

It can be wise to have a specific day you commit to cooking, thereby being able to only have to cook for a day to eat for a week, as our article’s title says. Cooking one meal every night might be difficult if you’ve had an exhausting day at work. Should you have the foresight to cook your meals on a day off however, you can then store the completed dishes in your fridge and simply warm them up as the week proceeds instead of having to do in-depth food prep every day of the week.

Once You Start, You Won’t Want to Stop

While it can be scary to start cooking at home if you don’t have much experience doing so, with all the resources available from internet guides to meal kits it can be made a lot less intimidating than you think. By having a day you dedicate to cooking you can relax and enjoy making some great meals to savor all week long. Cooking at home can be so enjoyable it is quite possible that once you start, you won’t want to stop–and that’s a good, “Problem,” to have.
