A well known fact in the fitness world is that a big portion of results come from dieting. Now, I know what foods are healthy and which ones aren't. That's not an issue for me; however, I seem to have issues with meal prep, and I really hate the texture of salad. I'm definitely an on the go type person; I am always moving, and my kids make life even more hectic. Due to this, the idea of meal prep has always been daunting to me. I've done it one time (a week's worth of meals) and absolutely hated it. It took hours, my food as always was bland and tasteless, and then microwaving it made it worse. So as a result, I am here wondering if you guys can help me out?
- What are some cheap alternatives to meal prepping?
- Things such as box meals and quick easy foods are preferred but not required.
- I am not a fan of the following:
- Fish (though I will eat tuna)
- Avocados and similar fruits.
- Most melons.
- Squash and Zucchini
I know that I can always cart around bags of carrots and similar vegetables, but I am hoping someone knows of some whole hearted meals that have just about everything I could need in a simple alternative. The cheaper the better obviously because my kids get all the good stuff. :D
Also, please understand that I will consider meal prepping foods that are quick and hard to make tasteless. For example, throwing 5lbs of chicken breast into a boiler with 10 sliced bell peppers and some chili powder is kind of hard to mess up and only takes about 20-30 minutes to prep a week's worth of lunch.
Thanks in advance!
