What is Meal Prep Monday?
Meal Prep Monday is the day that meal preppers around the globe come together to share and inspire others to lead healthier lifestyles.
Meal Prep Monday is more than beautiful photos of pre-portioned meals. It's a day that embodies the mindset and community around saving time and money, eating with a purpose, and hacking life.

Why Meal Prep?
- It saves you time and money. Cooking once and prepping means dinner is ready faster after work and after-school activities. There's no guesswork, and there's no spending extra money on takeout because you haven't prepped. (Hey, it happens to the best of us!)
- You can control what you are eating and that makes it healthier for you and your family.
- It minimizes food waste because you're buying and using only what you need.
- It gives you a sense of control over your life, your diet, and your health goals; meal prepping helps you stay focused.
- It's extra helpful if you are following a specific diet such as paleo, keto or low-carb, or gluten-free. It can be tricky to find meals that are compliant with more restrictive ways of eating. Our easy meal prep recipes can help.
