For many of us, it’s easy to make Sunday dinner the best meal of the week. After all, we often have more time to cook on our days off than we have on the days when we’re working. That said, this doesn’t mean that we need to make Sunday the only day we get to have a fantastic meal. There are ways to turn Sunday into the day you cook every meal for the entire week so you’ll have the chance to eat nutritiously all week long without needing a large amount of time.

Does this mean you’ll need to spend your entire Sunday cooking from dawn until dusk? Of course not! That said, you will need to do a little bit of planning. After all, if you’re going to be preparing seven dinners on one day, you’ll need to have all the ingredients ready. So plan your meals ahead of time for the entire week and do an effective grocery shop to pick up all the ingredients you’ll need.

By preparing all your meals ahead of time, you’ll be far more likely to eat what you should be eating throughout the week. Instead of becoming too tired to cook and popping a frozen pizza in the oven, you’ll already have a meal packed with veggies set for you to enjoy.

Here are some great tips to get the most out of your time on Sunday and eat fantastic meals all week long.

Sunday Weight Loss Meal Prep Tips

Prepare Produce in Bulk

Wash and chop all the veggies for each meal of the week, adding them to a storage container or freezer bag, depending on where you will be storing them. Prepare the meat you’ll be making by trimming, marinating and doing any other advance prep work. Store appropriately with the veggies you will be serving with it. That way, all the work is done and all you need to do is cook it all.

Cook Leftover Friendly

Fully prepare and cook a few meals that reheat well. These are great for days when you really don’t have it in you to do any cooking. All you need to do is throw these options on the stove or microwave long enough to warm them up. The rest of the work is all done for you.

Make Large Batches

If you’re putting all the effort in to prepare the meals, you may as well make twice as much. Suddenly, you’ll have extra meals in the freezer for the future, occasionally giving you the opportunity to skip cooking on Sunday altogether and yet still have all your meals ready for the week.

Make smoothie packs.

Cut up all the fruit you’d like to add to your smoothies and add them to freezer bags portioned out for each smoothie. This should include any ingredients you’d need to prep in advance. That way, once it’s time to have a smoothie, you can pop the ingredients into a personal blender cup, add some spinach, chia seeds and water/almond milk, blend and you’re ready to go. Even better, prepare two at a time so one can be left ready in the fridge for the next day. Shake it up and you’re set.
