Is it not your style to plan ahead? That may be a recipe for disaster when it comes to your personal health and nutrition goals. Discover some of the top health benefits of personalised meal prep and find out why Tessa’s needs to start prepping your meals today.
Many of us want to live a healthy lifestyle, to feel fit, energized and strong. But let’s be real. Whether it’s a demanding social life or a full-on job, life can be super busy. While setting goals to eat healthy might be easy, actually sticking to those goals can be a pain in the ass.
When you’re navigating through your busy workweek, the thought of cooking all of your own meals at home sometimes feels impossible. Why would you bother to do groceries and cook when ordering takeaway is literally one swipe away, right? Too bad those impulsive orders are stopping you from reaching your fitness goals.
If you want to live a healthy lifestyle while getting results, personalised nutrition is key. Yes, get ready to meet your new best friend: meal prep. Oh and the best part is, at Tessa’s we do all the prepping, planning and cooking for you. Our meals are developed based on your personal food preferences and health goals, with each meal containing the exact amount of carbs, fats and protein suitable for your body.
Discover five more benefits of personal meal prep below.
1. It will help you lose weight
With summer around the corner, many of us wouldn’t mind losing a kilo or two. In order to lose weight, you need to maintain a calorie deficit. This can be done by both exercising and tracking the food you eat. Tessa’s is here to help you out and stay on track. By planning your meals in advance, you will know exactly what you are eating and how much. Personalised nutrition allows you to control how much calories you are consuming every day, which is as much as we might hate it, the key to losing weight.
2. You will learn the art of portion control
They say life is all about ‘balance’. But where do they teach you how to balance your food? The best thing about meal prep is that it teaches you how much food you need to eat in order to fuel your body and feel satisfied at the same time. Many of us are eating healthy, but still not losing weight. The lack of portion control is often the reason why. But preparing the right amount of food is often not as easy as it seems. That’s why Tessa’s calculates the exact portion you need, according to your personal fitness goals.
3. Meal prep reduces stress
Stress might be another reason why you are not losing weight. Stress can affect your immune system, cause digestive issues and disrupt your sleeping pattern. So, try and eliminate all stress from your life. After a long day of work, doing groceries and cooking another healthy varied meal might give you stress. Again, meal prep is the answer. Say goodbye to the “what’s for dinner” stress and relax knowing that your meal just needs to be heated up.
4. Bring variety to your meals
Who says eating clean needs to be boring? Tessa’s chefs change the menu every week and create new recipes that will keep you eating varied every single day. By mixing up the different food categories, and selecting different sources of protein, fats, grains and vegetables you will never get bored of your meal prep.
5. Invest in your health
The benefits of eating a clean diet are endless. Good nutrition won’t contribute to just a smaller waistline, but also benefits your heart health, makes you sleep better and gives your body all the right vitamins and fuel it needs. Tessa’s helps you maintain a clean diet by delivering healthy meals at your doorstep. All the meals are based on your own health goals and food preferences: it’s like having a private chef at home.
