Subj: Mason Jar Meal Prep for Bodybuilding.
Getting in shape requires two things:
Lifting weights and eating clean.
You’ll find that lifting is easy compared to eating clean.
Meal prep makes eating clean easier by having healthy meals ready to eat.
There are many benefits for meal prep. The best is that it ensures you get your nutritional requirements to reach your fitness goals.
I use Mason jars for meal prep because they are durable, leakproof, microwavable (take the lid off first) and airtight, keeping your food fresh.
I’ve been preparing healthy mason jar meals to save time, save money and to eat healthy, clean food.
Every Sunday, I cook lunches for the week ahead. My lunch is usually a mix of rice, beans, steamed veggies with beef, chicken, or fish.
I used to spend $8+ per lunch per day. I cook all the food and portion it out into mason jars. This whole process takes me an hour and and cost about $15 for food. These meals have the best nutrition you can get per dollar.
The food used to eat was dog shit compared to my prepared mason jar meals. I also saved time by not having to go find food for lunch everyday.
Now I just bring my mason jar meal to work with me, put it in the fridge until I’m hungry. When lunch time comes around, I grab my meal from the fridge and heat it in the microwave for 2 minutes and lunch is served. I spend 20 minutes eating and have an extra 40 minutes each day to work. That means I get done with my workday 40 minutes sooner or I can put more effort into a task or project.
Plus I have more money in my pocket and I’m eating at least one healthy meal each day. What would you do with an extra 40 minutes a day?
