Meal prepping is huge right now, we are huge fans of it for a few reasons.

First, 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. Everybody wants more time in their day. You may remember we talked about meal prepping with Dimir from LifeHack Bootcamp on episode 13 of The Fiscal Fitness Podcast. He said spending 2-4 hours on cooking a Sunday is significantly less than the time it takes to cook individual meals and/or eat out daily.  Lastly, when you meal prep, you are in total control of the quality of the food you put in your mouth as well as the portion size.

Meal prepping is seriously a win-win-win.

In today’s episode of the Fiscal Fitness Podcast, we talk with Dr. Mike Simon, from Crossover Physical Therapy in St. Michael, Minnesota. We chat with him about his experience with meal prepping, how much money he saves every week on groceries and eating out (and it’s a crazy number!), and how much weight he has lost. 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 Fiscal Fitness Meal Prep Challenge.  Starting on January 1st, we will have a meal prep challenge. It’s designed to help people who want to follow through on their New Year’s resolutions to get better at sticking to a budget and eat healthier and lose weight.  We talk about the rules and basics of the challenge in the podcast episode, but you can find out more at www.fiscalfitnessphx.com/mealprepchallenge
