If you find it hard to stick to your diet each week, you might find this helpful.

Once per week, bulk cook.

Now I am not one for spending hours in the kitchen, but sometimes you have to weigh up the cost-benefit of this time spent. You might spend 1-2 hours in the kitchen on a Sunday cooking, and that means you actually gain 5 hours of your life back. I know some of you are thinking “no chance, I have kids I cannot spend 2 hours in the kitchen.” Some of that time is cooking time, you don’t physically have to be in the kitchen when something is in the oven/slow cooker.

How does this work?

  1. Choose 2-3 recipes that you enjoy eating and will help you to hit your daily nutritional targets.
  2. Use these recipes to plan your meals for the week ahead.. stick with weekdays to start!
  3. Select simple meals that can easily warp into something different so you don’t get bored. Ex. Shredded chicken can be plopped on top of a salad, rolled in a wrap, mixed in a taco bowl or stand alone next to veg and steamed rice
  4. Plan your shopping and put aside 1 to 2 hours to bulk cook your meals (make sure you have some tupperware and space in the fridge/freezer!!)
  5. Set a reminder to remove frozen meals from the freezer 12-24 hours before you plan on eating them
  6. Microwave to heat when necessary, and serve with fresh (or frozen) vegetables/fruit/salad

Eg. Bulk Cook:

1 x Butter Chicken Curry

1 x Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

1 x Turkey Meatloaf

Mon

Lunch: Turkey Meatloaf in a sandwich with salad

Dinner: Chicken Balti with microwave rice & greens

Tues

Lunch: Turkey Meatloaf in a sandwich with salad

Dinner: Slow cooker pulled pork with wedges and greens.

Weds

Lunch: Slow cooker pulled pork in a wrap with salad.

Dinner: Chicken Balti with microwave rice & greens

You see where I am going with this…?

Whilst some people might find eating the same thing boring, it doesn’t have to be! AND it might help you to create the space for variety or enjoyment elsewhere in your life. Each day you’ll gain back where you might have spent an hour or more prepping meals. Imagine what you can do with an extra hour for yourself?
