Pamela says, “I spent roughly £279 and made 212 portions at a cost of £1.31 per meal. I have leftover veg etc which I intend to use up this week further reducing the cost per portion.
“It took me around 15 hours split over 2 days.
“This will save me a huge amount of time going forward, stops me continuously thinking about food and what I need to cook. On top of that, it will save me money on a monthly basis!”
Pamela’s meal prep tips:
“My top tips for prepping is to be organised, I printed out every recipe I needed, worked out what I need for each recipe, quantities etc and got everything 1-2 days before I was going to cook. This allowed me to check and double-check I had everything.
“I also got every pot, pan and kitchen utensil I was going to use ready so it was all at hand!
“I also put it in the family diary so my husband knew I was most likely going to be busy in the kitchen that weekend.
“My top tip is to invest in a vegetable chopper, it saved me so much time and it cuts vegetables evenly.
“I would also advise you, if it was cost-effective to do so, to buy pre-minced garlic, onions etc.”
