You probably know that doing some advanced food prep on Sunday is key to having a healthier week. But chances are, you don’t have time to spend an entire day slaving away over a hot stove, whipping up tons of healthy meals for the week ahead. No worries—all is not lost! You can still prep for a slim week by following these easy and less time-consuming tips from Keri Gans, RD, author of The Small Change Diet:
Portion out the snacks that you’re going to bring to work: True, you could buy snack-size bags of chips and those little boxes of Cheerios—but everyone knows that they’re way more expensive, not to mention bad for the environment. The cheaper option: Buy big bags of stuff and put portions in smaller baggies on Sundays. That way, you can bring your “snack packs” to work each day and you won’t be tempted by the bad-for-you stuff in the vending machine.

Hard-boil a dozen eggs: Two eggs and a piece of fruit is an ideal breakfast for weight loss, but often, the last thing you want to do slash have time for in the a.m. is egg prep. Hard-boil a bunch on Sunday, though, and you have zero excuses for grabbing a pastry in the morning. It takes almost no time at all to pop an egg or two in your mouth before you head out the door—and you can even eat your piece of fruit on the go.

Because let’s be honest: You’re going to eat something anyway, so it might as well be healthy.
