Meal prepping is huge right now and for a few major reasons. First of all, the cost savings of meal prepping compared to what you spend on random shopping trips and eating out is tremendous. Secondly, the time efficiency of meal prepping is huge. You may remember we talked about it with Dimir from LifeHack Bootcamp on episode 13 in which he said that spending 2-4 hours on a Sunday meal prepping is significant less the time it takes to cook individual meals and eat out. Lastly, when you meal prep, you are in total control of the quality of what you put in your mouth and the portion size as well. Win-win-win.
In today's episode we talk with Dr. Mike Simon, from Crossover Physical Therapy in St. Michael, Minnesota, about his experience with meal prepping, how much money he saves every week on groceries and eating out (and it's a crazy number!), how much weight he has lost and much more. He also goes over his tips and best practices for getting started with meal prepping, where to purchase your food and what are his go-to home run meals.
We also are excited to announce the 2018 The Saver and The Spender Meal Prep Challenge. Starting on January 1st, 2018 we will be having a meal prep challenge to help people follow through on their new years resolutions to either be better with their budget or to eat healthier and lose weight; or both! We talk about the rules and basics of the challenge in the podcast but you can find out more at www.fiscalfitnessphx.com/mealprepchallenge
