1) Set aside a 2-hour block on your free day. Making time is key. Without setting aside specific hours, it's hard to find the time. If you don't have a 2-hour block, use cooking methods that allow you to do other things while you're prepping – like the Crock-Pot or Instant Pot. I usually make 2-3 Crock-Pot dishes a week!
2) Buy leak proof containers that work for you! If you're on a Keto or macro diet, buy one with a few compartments. If you enjoy warm dishes, pick glass containers that can be heated in the oven or microwave. And don't just buy one. I recommend getting at least three so you can prep a few meals at a time. I like these containers from Prep Naturals since the lid snaps on easily and i know my dressing or sauce will not leak. A great and inexpensive alternative is mason jars. They fit easily into a backpack or work bag. Check out these recipes for Mason Jar Salads. (The Buddha Jar is my favorite!)
3) 1, 2, 3... 4 ! When I prep I rarely put together a particular meal. I just make sure I'm making at least 1 grain, 2 proteins, 3 leafy vegetables, and 4 crunchy vegetables. This keeps my prep time less than 90 minutes! For instance, my prep might be 1 batch of short grain brown rice, crock-pot Chuck Roast, grilled salmon, spinach, baby kale, broccoli sprouts, raw tomatoes chopped, marinated onions, grilled zucchini, and roasted cauliflower.
4) Don't forget the sauce! Almost all my favorite meals have a sauce or dressing that helps to increase the flavor of the dish. So I prep a few sauces/condiments like guacamole, kimchi, herbed ghee, or cucumber dill yogurt sauce. It varies based on the meals I make, but I always have one or two handy to give that extra oomf to my meal. (This is where those leak-proof containers come in handy!)

"Real talk...since my cancer was environmental and not hereditary I am super conscious of what goes into my body, especially protein. Post chemo left my body super low in iron so steak remains in my diet. I found Pre a few months ago and it’s the only meat I buy. Grass-fed, no added hormones and most importantly affordable. Eat better for your body people!"jaqueline
"Your steaks, especially the sirloin, ribeye, and filet mignon are absolutely delicious. Wasn’t sure how these cuts would taste grilled but they taste just as good if not better than cuts I’ve had a top notch steakhouses."Mario
"When our son was diagnosed with a rare medical disorder, it meant that we would have to change our diet as a family. Because his metabolism doesn’t function like a typical person’s, we have to be very careful about what we feed him. One of the changes we made was to use more grass-fed and finished beef in our cooking. We decided to give Pre a try, and we are so happy with the quality and taste of the meat. Buying from Pre gives us peace of mind and we feel confident knowing that we are using a product in the top of its class."Lindsay
"This beef is AMAZING! I'm from Wisconsin so a huge steak lover. This is some of the best beef, I've experienced and I've had beef around the world. It's a must try, and you'll understand what I mean."Tracy
"My husband and I loved having these filets once a week. I sear both sides and "in-between" in a very hot small Lodge cast iron skillet. I use a spatter guard. Then I place the skillet in a 400 degree oven for between 2min. 10-20 seconds. Perfect medium minus filets. My mouth is watering as I write this!!"Mary M.
"These steaks and other Pre products have been a staple in our home for over a year now and we continue to be fully satisfied with their consistently good quality and flavor. They are the perfect size, are delicious and easy to cook. Add Pre’s amazing customer service to it and you end up with an exceptional overall product!"K.G.
"Best steak I've had in a long time. I love being able to order grass fed beef that is way better than I can find in grocery stores. Really tastes great on the grill . I'm addicted to it now."Jeff S.
"First time trying the 10 Pack New York Strips. Oh My! had an unexpectedly warm day and whipped out the grill. Enough said. Delish !!!! Steaks are equally cut making cooking much easier for the desired temp."Lu H.
