3 Reasons to Use a Meal Prep Service

By Team Cellucor

We don’t have to sell you on the benefits of meal prep.

You already know you need clean meals on-hand to get ahead with your fitness goals. Of course, as much it might suck to admit it, meal prepping can be tedious and time-consuming. There are probably a thousand other things you'd rather be doing with your Sunday than standing at the counter chopping vegetables, cleaning chicken, and waiting for water to boil.

Luckily, there's an easy solution to the meal prep blues that will still keep you stocked with clean meals: meal prep services!

Fitness-forward companies like Eat Clean Bro take the pain out of prep. And they do it all, too—from menu creation to calculating macros per meal to the final delivery. Instead of prepping your meals, all you have to do is eat them.   

Here are three great reasons to try a clean meal prep service.

The price is flexible

If you’re someone who cooks in bulk, you may question whether it's worth ordering all your meals through a prep service. Of course, this depends on how much you eat at each meal, how many meals eat per day, your dietary restrictions, and the time you have to prep every single meal.

For some people, it may prove to be more cost-effective to order some of your meals through a service and prep the others yourself. For example, you’d order dinner but prep breakfast and lunch on your own, given those meals are typically easier to whip up. If you break even on cost, at least you don’t have to do all the work yourself!

Cooking is not your thing

This one seems pretty obvious, but if cooking isn’t your thing, you probably won’t stick to it long enough for meal prep to work its magic. Not to mention, having the same meal over and over again gets boring.

Utilizing a meal prep service is kind of like having your own personal chef who knows how to make healthy food a little more exciting. Eat Clean Bro, for example, has options like "General Bro’s Chicken" and “Thai Peanut Shrimp." They taste great and meet your macros. Talk about spicing it up!

You just don’t have time to prep every meal

Let’s face it, aside from the potential of meal prep getting monotonous, there is the very real challenge of simply finding time to do it. You may be on the road too often, have a family, a job that forces you to work late, or any other time-intensive set of circumstances in your life. All of the above can make it challenging to stay consistent with your meal prep.

A meal prep service takes the stress off eating clean and may actually help you plan when all other variables are out of your control. You can set yourself on autopilot, eat the meals without worry, and reap the rewards. After all, nutrition is 80% of the battle when it comes to seeing results, so set yourself up for maximum success.
