Follow These Instagram Accounts If Meal Prepping Is Your New Year’s Resolution

Every single New Year’s Eve, I promise myself that I’m gonna start meal prepping. Why is that, you ask? There are a few reasons, but I’ll stick to the basics. For starters, planning your meals is definitely healthier than settling for takeout every night (sigh). It’s also a lot cheaper than buying food whenever you’re hungry. If you’re hoping to purchase the right food products that’ll create sustainable meals in 2019, you might want some guidance. Luckily, I’ve rounded up a few Instagram accounts for meal prepping that’ll help you get a head start on your resolution.

Whether you’re a vegetarian, vegan or a straight up carnivore, there are tons of meal prepping pages that you can follow. Luckily, various Instagram accounts have created impressive fanbases by mapping out each meal for its followers. Thanks to them, you won’t have to aimlessly wander around the grocery store hoping that everything you throw into your cart will make a good meal. Instead, you’ll be able to plan your breakfasts, lunches and dinners with the help of your favorite meal prepping role models.

Before I dive in, get your phones out. Trust me, you’re gonna want to follow these prepping pages.
