Must-Have Gadgets For Meal Prep
The world of diet meal prep can be initially quite daunting, but once you try it you realise how easy and how incredibly rewarding and timesaving it can be in the long run.
Thankfully, if the idea of spending a whole afternoon getting meals ready seems daunting, there are so many gadgets that can help you out. Here are some of our favourites.
Batch cooking is one of the most efficient ways to meal prep, as you can simply cook more portions of a meal, store it and have delicious meals for days. A slow cooker makes the process of making pasta dishes, chillies and curries so easy that it almost stops being a gadget and starts being a staple.
Mini Food Processor
Whilst a big blender or processor is useful when batch cooking and making big dishes, having a small food processor or chopper available makes preparing vegetables, garlic and onions incredibly easy.
A spiral slicer is a great way to brighten up any meal and can be used to replace pasta in some dishes. When meal prepping, different shapes and textures can brighten up dishes, and spiralising is a very fun activity to do whilst preparing other ingredients.
Ultimately, the most important part of meal prep comes in storage, and so why not try out a bento box? Bento boxes are very popular in Japan and are a creative and easy way to add variety to your meal prep.
