Five Time Saving Fat Loss Tips for The Kitchen

1) Plan ahead.

Plan what you're going to eat for the entire week and make a list of all the ingredients you will need before you go shopping. This will save you trips to the grocery store, time while at the grocery store, and money from buying things you don't need.

2) The best veggies are the ones you eat.

Do you have a hard time finding the time and energy to prep and cook fresh vegetables? If this is you, opt for more convenient options such as canned or frozen instead. If you're concerned about the micronutrient profiles of your foods, don't worry. Studies have actually found that frozen and canned veggies have similar micronutrient densities overall.

3) Cooking Slow Saves Time.

Slow cookers are probably one of the greatest inventions ever conceived. Throw your ingredients in the pot and let it sit. If you're looking for a great slow cooker recipe to start with, I LOVE Santa Fe soup.


4) One and Done

One of the biggest reasons people give for over-consuming fast food is because of short lunch breaks at work and not having time to cook after work. Well, what if you had some amazingly delicious meals prepped and ready and all you had to do is pop them in the microwave and hit start? Sound good?

If so, try batch cooking all of your meals for the week on a day that you don't work and portioning them out into individual containers. If you've never meal prepped before, start simple. Include a lean protein, a starch, and a fibrous veggie. For example: chicken, potatoes, and broccoli or lean beef, jasmine rice, and lima beans. (Don't go too heavy on the starchy carbs though. They're more Calorie dense than fibrous carbs.) To save even more time, combine this with tips 1 and 2. If you want ultra time savings, combine this with tips 1, 2, and 3.

5) Grab and Go

You should always keep a high quality protein powder on hand along with some fresh berries and veggies that can be eaten raw such as carrots or broccoli. Portion them out into small containers or snack baggies. This way, you will always have access to healthy food options, even when you don't have time to cook.
