There are so many benefits for keeping your food organised ahead of time, including helping you to eat regular portion sizes and stopping you from eating junk or processed food.

It also saves you a lot of money, not to mention time, as you only have to clean up ONCE A WEEK, and not every day.

So if you’re going to make any New Year’s resolutions this year, make it to meal prep.
