Believe it or not, you can actually prep an entire week’s worth of meals in just one hour — here’s how YouTube screenshot

Can you imagine cutting down all your meal prep time for an entire week into just one hour? And not just for dinner, but for every meal — breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even snacks.

Sounds kinda crazy, but Mind Over Munch has figured out how to do it. She shows us exactly how to use the hour to get all this done and also what to do to finish cooking each meal when you’re ready to eat it.

She uses two major hacks to make it work:

  • Eat the same meals each day. That way, you only have to prep one recipe. If you think this would be too boring, you could always plan for an entire month at once using four recipes and rotate them throughout the month.
  • Use pre-chopped vegetables from the grocery store. This saves a ton of time that would be spent chopping veggies and lets you use your time to make most of the meal assembly instead.
