For hungry runners (that’s us!), learning to save time and money in the kitchen is essential to eating healthier. Meal prepping means cooking dishes or prepping ingredients and snacks in advance. A well-stocked fridge will help you reach for nourishing whole foods, instead of packaged convenience food, anytime hunger strikes. When you arrive home from a workout or a long day and you have the components prepped for dinner, you’ll be a lot less likely to call in takeout. In addition to eating more delicious and nutritious meals, meal prepping will save you time and money.

That’s why I’m so excited to introduce my new video series, Mastering Meal Prep with Elyse Kopecky, exclusively with Women’s Running and ActivePass. Every week you’ll learn something new about the core skills that go into being a meal prepping pro, including knife skills, storage tips, protein prep, and more.

“Cook once, eat twice” is the motto in our busy household. On Sundays, I set aside two uninterrupted hours (no phone, no kids!) to cook dishes that can be used in multiple meals. (This week, we’re covering the five items to meal prep every week). I also cook a big batch of protein on Sundays, which we eat for dinner that night and have enough leftover to kick off our week.
