    Learn How to Meal Prep Under $100 from IFBB Pro Jeff Long!

    For those of you who say eating healthy is too expensive, well… Learn from the bossman himself! Let IFBB Pro Jeff Long push you down the aisle of a typical grocery run for the week keeping the bill under $100!

    Consider your kitchen to be your Command Operations Center and your grocery list as your general attack strategy. Only a fool sends their troops into war (either on the battlefield or in the gym) without proper supplies. Lazy food planning will limit, if not completely derail your progress.

    The bodybuilders that seem to make the most of their genetics tend to also be the very ones that set aside time once or twice a week, to perform bulk prep of their bodybuilding meals. If you come home and have a variety of healthy, delicious premade microwavable meals waiting for you in the freezer, you are much more likely not to stray from good nutrition. The top benefit of bulk food is that it keeps you on track to your objective of a lean, muscular body. Here’s some helpful tips to keep in mind when meal prepping!

    Shop the Perimeter:

    By sticking to the edges of the grocery store rather than the center aisles, you’ll automatically be making the healthiest choices. The perimeter is where the produce, dairy, and meats/seafood are located. The center aisles typically only contain the processed, packaged foods that you should stay away from while dieting.

    Buy in Bulk:

    While shopping at your local grocer is fine, always consider buying in bulk. Do your grocery shopping at a “warehouse” grocer such as Costco or Sam’s Club. Save time and money by doing all your grocery shopping on one day during the week.

    Efficient Food Storage:

    Even those with limited freezer space would be surprised to learn how much they can store. With only a fridge-top freezer, you can manage to store thirty to forty meals, depending on how you package them. Utilize freezer bags, as they actually take up much less space than plastic containers.

    List the type of food on the bag with a sharpie marker because once frozen it can sometimes be hard to tell one item from the next. When filling freezer bags, leave an empty inch on top of any liquid foods since they will expand when frozen.
