Meal prepping makes it easy to feed your family a healthy, well-balanced diet while saving you time and money.
Just plan your meals, cook enough for three to four days at a time and store the food in your freezer until you’re ready to eat it. Easy!
When you learn how to meal prep, you’ll…
Visit the supermarket less often: Because you’ve planned your entire week’s menu, you can visit the supermarket just once, saving money and avoiding those impulse buys.
Reduce the time you spend in the kitchen: Instead of cooking every day from scratch, you can get all your meals done at the same time. There’ll be no endless piles of saucepans to wash each night!
Reduce cost: By cooking several meals in advance, you’ll help reduce your food costs and have great meals ready to go.
Improve your portion control: With meal prep, you can pre-portion your meals so you can keep your health in check.
Four easy steps to new year meal prepping in 2024 – a few tips and tricks from us at Maggi®:
Step 1: Find delicious recipes
Whenever you have a few free minutes to spare, start thinking about which dishes you love to eat, then bookmark or print them for later.
Looking for some inspiration? Check out these recipes for Juicy Mediterranean Chicken, Spicy Noodle Salad and Jollof Rice, or choose a simple carb + protein + veggie formula, then add Maggi® Seasonings, Sauces, Noodles or Recipe Mixes to make your meals extra tasty.
Step 2: Create your plan
Once you’ve found some recipes you love, it’s time to make a food plan! Just create a weekly meal plan and fill in your daily meal ideas, remembering to allow for days when you’ll arrive home late or need to eat on the go.
Step 3: Write your shopping list
It’s time to hit the supermarket! Use the meal plan you just created to write a shopping list of everything you’ll need to buy, including staples such as oils, herbs, spices, and Maggi® Seasonings, Sauces, Noodles and Recipe Mixes.
Top tip: Save even more time in the supermarket by ordering your list according to the store layout.
Step 4: Get cooking!
Next, choose your favourite recipe and cook it for dinner, storing the leftovers for lunch the next day. By doing this, you’ll learn which foods work best for meal prep and what you enjoy eating, without feeling overwhelmed. Once you’ve done this, you can consider tackling several days’ worth of meal prep.
Meal prep makes it easier to eat delicious, wholesome foods while saving time, money and stress. Why not try meal prep in this new year with the help of Maggi’s® range of Seasonings, Sauces, Noodles and Recipe Mixes?
