mypt foodI can tell you from many a stressful Sunday; do not, I repeat do not think that you will find matching lids to the containers your last few take out Chinese dishes came in!! (Um, yes the personal trainer likes and eats Chinese food). There is a magical land where all your lids disappear to and you are left with perfectly prepared food in a lidless container just asking to leak in to your bag.
Tupper tip: Invest in some decent meal prep dishes. You can find them relatively cheap online. MYPT studio currently have a pack of 15 HERE.
This makes life much easier when you know you have 5 dishes to separate your meals in to, the lids are all there and you can just stack them in the fridge ready to grab each morning before you go to work.
Life tip: Set a reminder on your phone, leave a post-it note on the door, in front of the mirror you brush your teeth in or all of the above. There is no pain like getting to lunchtime and realising that all that time spent meal prepping has gone to waste with your food still sitting in your fridge at home. “I’ll just have to get a foot-long subway today “is not something you want to try and justify to yourself.
Prep Tip: Get yourself a set of digital kitchen scales. The advantage of doing food prep instead of buying food out every day is you know exactly whats gone in to each and every meal. This level of consistency is whats going to take your results to the next level. A decent one will set you back less than a lunch out.
