Organizing your Diet Plan by Cooking in Bulk

Portioned Meals
Any diet plan can be made much easier when you cook bulk meals in advance and store them for eating on specified days. If you are new to this you may just start by cooking one or two extra meals for later consumption but once you get used to the process you can be cooking bulk meals for up to  month in advance.  Here’s a sample of some foods that you could easily cook in bulk and refrigerate.

Lean Ground Beef

Equal Portions of Ground Beef

You can easily cook up to 5 pounds of lean ground beef, divide it into several portions and store in the refrigerator for later consumption.

Chicken

Refrigerating Boneless Chicken Breasts

Look for free range chicken which is a healthier option; chop it up and cook it according to your preference.  Divide it into meal sized portions and refrigerate. The same can be done for turkey.
