You don’t have to prep every single meal + snack you eat to be a meal prepper. There are levels of prep and picking the right one for you can save you time and money!
I go back and forth between these levels depending on my goals, social schedule and time of year.
LEVEL 1: You prep/buy snacks for the week. You cut up some veggies for snacks and daily meals. You might cook a form of protein in advance.
LEVEL 2: You only prep some of your meals and snacks for the week.
LEVEL 3: You prep one or two meals per day and all your snacks but leave room to eat out or make something fresh.
LEVEL 4: You prep twice a week because you prep all your meals and snacks.
