Keep at your simple habit for about a week and then start to add the next steps to your routine. Once successfully creating the habit, cooking will no longer take a great deal of willpower, it.

Cooking at home doesn’t mean you need a Michelin star esq kitchen.

However, a few basic utensils and ingredients can make your meal prep much easier: Step 1: Plan Your Meal Prep. A) Pick a day to meal prep. Sundays work well for most people. B) Decide how many meals you need for the week.

If you can persevere and get over that initial. In theory, this makes sense: By definition, meal prep involves cooking at home, which is associated with a higher-quality diet.

1. Start by planning one day’s meal this week. Either plan and cook ahead of time, or research and choose where you will be eating out. Choose dishes online ahead of time. 2. Next week, plan two days ahead. 3. Keep increasing the planning rate, until you know what you will eat every day.

The plan for this party was simple: invite my mom, sister, sisters-in-law, and one may-as-well-be-a-sister friend over to put some freezer meals together. (And before you call me out on reinforcing outdated gender roles, I hasten to add that my dad and some of my brothers were there too — minding the baby and doing dishes.

  • Enjoyed this very much. Liked seeing your grocery store too. I think what you called lady fingers is known as okra in the US. You have inspired me to food prep more.

  • Crock pot and rice cooker are good choices for an easy home cooked meal. It is still more easier if you use frozen veggies or stir fry for your meals

  • For Youghurt, i have inidan youhurt culturewhihc is nothing but curd from my freindso I add half a tspn may be less, for luttle less than half gallon milk, and set for 5:1/2 hours. Done.

  • As a professional meal prep chef (personal chef), I think you’re doing a fantastic job! I like my pancakes fresh, so make numerous batches of the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, etc.), then pour into mason jars like pancake mix. When I’m ready, I just add almond milk, mashed banana and vanilla.

  • Although that cauliflower “rice” bowl looked very pretty, I doubt it had any flavor. I mean black beans from a can? Seriously? But the butternut squash looked ok. Might try that…minus the enchilada sauce.

  • Good!! Home made food gives ultimate satisfaction. I cook daily and love discovering and experimenting…. love your cooking homemade meals ideas.

  • I am building a community of meal preppers on fb to share photos, ideas, and ask questions. Would love for you to post some of your creations in there!

    The group is called: DIY Meal Preps

    See you in there!

  • I love your videos, and just recently subscribed to your channel. I would love to win this cookbook. My family is trying to eat healthier this year and this book sounds wonderful.

  • Yogourt: definitely don’t need the instant pot. For those who would like to try homemade yogourt without having to buy an instant pot (or save said instant pot for cooking a main course instead) using masson jars and incubating in the oven (non-LED light on) is great too! I even saw a lady do the incubating in a cooler container, using hot water to maintain the temperature nice and warm.

  • This is a very thoughtful video, perfect and very comforting during a stressful time. Thank you for having so much consideration for your subscribers.

  • I thought the comments would be loaded with this tip, but I don’t see any in my scan. So, one of the things that stuck out to me, is to cook the butternut squash before trying to cut it. They are really always that hard if you don’t cook them first.

  • Here in Germany they say you shall not keep minced meat longer than 1 day, as it is so sensitive for bacteria. and yours even has raw egg in it, thats seen evrn more critical because of salmonella. Not to blame you, just to inform how things are told in other parts of the world:) Cultural exchange so to speak:)

  • We love you lucie!!! You bring such a bright refresh to Refinery29! I want to see you try being a garbage man, it will be interesting ��

  • Cutting butternut squash is the toughest arm workout out there. Although here’s a tip: warm your knife by running a lighter through the edge of the knife ����

  • So many vegetables! I LOVE broccoli sprouts (they’re called broccoli microgreens here). They’re so flavorful. Thanks again. your videos are so inspiring.

  • I loved when you walked down your steps. Looking across the road it reminded me of Sesame Street. Was expecting Grouch to pop out of a bin. Loving your channel from Australia

  • I Love hummus!!! I’m definitely going to try from now on making my own. Definitely going to try mash potatoe hack. You’re right most of the starch boils out into the water. Thanks!

  • Hey Lucie! A tip to peel the butternut squash that is a bit safer and less time consuming peel it before you cut it, I peel the the top or bottom half then wrap a paper towel around the peeled part (because it is slippery!) and then peel the other half and hold onto the paper towel! Then chop it up!

  • you guys cooking together makes me so happy:) for a second, i thought the Fink-Morris family was vegetarian, but then Lucie and Michael made that chicken dish together, and i realized lucie was using vegetarian recipes

  • Hi raveena I’m luisa single of Australia new subscriber of your channel,I loved watching your video I learned a lot and make our new home organised thank you so much for sharing us your video’s god bless you and your family Mabuhay also from my origin country Philippines ���� regards ��������

  • What can i say about you. U are just too good and perfect in everything. I am learning so much from you. Thank you I am so happy to have found u. God Bless u and your family.

  • Outstanding!!’ U manage cooking process so effortlessly.. and that too in such a neat and clean way..!!! You’ll don’t have Indian meals???

  • Thank you so much for doing all this amazing work, Mike! I LOVE these types of videos and you include so many awesome tips. Buying a whole chicken, roasting it, deboning it, and making broth is my favorite prep item to get done on the weekends.

  • Hi Raveena ji,
    I enjoyed watching ur cooking. I loved ur lunch. Yummy. The shopping idea was great. Packing the vegetables in the refrigerator was class. U r a great woman of inspiration. Lot to learn from u. A big hug and kiss to u��������

  • Hello mam.. I am your new subscriber… I have watched ur couple of videos…. Nd I felt in love with ur style…. In which country do you stay??? It doesn’t seem to be India

  • question… is Daily Harvest good for the environment??? what is up with that? all that packaging is a bit annoying and the whole idea is unnecessary..ESPECIALLY when you show us so many great recipes.

  • i hate all of the hate in these comments. guys, she older than she was in 2014 so obviously she sounds more scripted its because she more mature now. i personally love this video:)

  • Cutting butternut squash is the toughest arm workout out there. Although here’s a tip: warm your knife by running a lighter through the edge of the knife ����

  • Wow! I asked for easy recipes and I LOVED each and everything you’ve prepared. Excellent system at the grocery stores. In the USA there are some states that are beginning to charge.10 cents per plastic bag at the supermarket. One of my friends who lives in Maryland, Washington brings her own bags to avoid paying for those bags. You peeled your apples ahead of time, don’t you put lemon over it so that they won’t get brown? By the way you have an excellent Spanish pronunciation. Thank you for everything.Looking forward to more recipes. ������������������

  • Simple,easy and wonderful,Mam! Your meal planning and meal prep everything is a learning experience. Your vlogs always inspire me and I try to follow.

  • Anyone else triggered by the fruits and veggies just in the basket without a bag?. Okay, just me �� Honestly, didn’t know this ever bothered me til this video. Sorry! I tried not comment on it.. but put it in bags people! For cleanliness reasons if anything. Okay sorry, goodbye. I love this channel regardless. Lol

  • For Youghurt, i have inidan youhurt culturewhihc is nothing but curd from my freindso I add half a tspn may be less, for luttle less than half gallon milk, and set for 5:1/2 hours. Done.

  • I was wondering why this video had dislikes… then I realized that Turkeys lost their sense of safety after learning they’d be hunted for more than a single day…

  • thank you for all your amazing videos! the last few weeks i have almost watched all of your videos so far. your are very inspiring and you show how easy it actually is, to incorporate soo many cooking styles for somebodys daily meals. i also appreciate your attitude towards zero waste and just making as much out if it as possible. so many youtube chefs dont care about that at all.
    greetings from vienna

  • I just started prepping my workfood… it started with precooking rice for more than a day and now its basically that I cook my whole meals for a six-day-week on sunday… At the moment the meal is pretty simple: rice, chicken and some gravy… Next turn I’m gonna steam me some brocolli, cawlyflower and carrots as well… and then I have to figure out maybe some variations… I can eat the same thing for a long time and especially when I start to mix it up with fruits (because basically my pure meal is a little small in calories) I hope that I can figure out a few different, tasteful variations or meal-compilations, which I can cook the week before to my gusto and what I would like to spice up my week with!

  • Instead of maple for the yogurt, add grounded garlic salt and black pepper then u can eat it with falafel or u can add chopped diced cucumbers and eat that with any Armenian or arabian dish that got rice and meat ��

  • Hey, I hope you see this. How do you use the leftover whey liquid that comes out of the yoghurt? You mentioned that you save it but you did not mention what it can be used for… Thanks 😉

  • Hi Dawn, loving your tips and ideas, this cook book seems like a great fit for our life. Wondering now that its been 10 months how your finding the cook book and this as a part of keeping your life simple?

  • that yogurt in a cloth on a hook is exactly how my family made homemade cottage cheese (tvorog) for about 200 years (as far as we can tell by our great-great-grandma’s notes), my mom still makes it like this

  • If anyone wants a quick and easy (and dairy free) alternative to the yoghurt, add a probiotic capsule to a (clean and sterilised) jar and add some coconut milk from a can. The coconut milk has to be additive free, and the probiotic capsule can’t contain prebiotics. Put a cloth on the jar and leave out for 1-2 days in a clean area. Check out Minimalist Baker easy coconut yoghurt for more instructions:D

  • question… is Daily Harvest good for the environment??? what is up with that? all that packaging is a bit annoying and the whole idea is unnecessary..ESPECIALLY when you show us so many great recipes.

  • Hey Lucie!

  • I’m going to try these recipes out for me and my kids…They sound and look yummy and thank you for sharing them with us, appreciate it x

  • Good!! Home made food gives ultimate satisfaction. I cook daily and love discovering and experimenting…. love your cooking homemade meals ideas.

  • This was such a kickass videoinformative, concise, and food shots that made my mouth water Thanks so much for taking the time to put this together:D

  • I loved when you walked down your steps. Looking across the road it reminded me of Sesame Street. Was expecting Grouch to pop out of a bin. Loving your channel from Australia

  • ALHAMDULILLAAH FOR THIS.
    WELL MIKE THANK YOU!!! I’m going to be married insyaa allaah in 2020, and i am planning to be a housewife, but i notice i couldnt fill my schedule ALL DAY for cooking right? I still need to be doing other than that. So meal prepping for my family i should do smartly&efficiently. Thank you, again. I am HAPPY and excited to learn and take lessons from this, AND THIS IS FREE?!! THANK YOU!

  • Easier way to make bone broth. Leave it in a slow cookers overnight in low. Warm fresh broth for the next day. Bonus: the meat is super tender and you get the marrow inside the bones which is amazing for nutrients and yummy

  • Good video, but I’ll just say the title is incredibly misleading. It’s actually exactly the opposite of what the video actually is.

  • looks like your at the prospect park market…check out my older brothers beer…From the Ground Brewery!!! im sure you have already tried it!

  • I was shocked when I found out farmers markets are a yank thing first and not English. Babe don’t have the same ring to it now showing my age a bit ��

  • Hi! My mom grew up in a village in Greece without electricity, so her way of making yogurt is a great option for those without an Instant Pot. She boils he yogurt to 200°F, puts it in a large bowl with a lid while it’s still hot and wraps it in a bunch of blankets or towels to keep the heat in as long as possible. She then places it in the warmest place in the house for a couple days and checks on it from time to time to see if it’s the consistency she wants. And that’s it!

  • About the yoghurt if it’s industrial bacteria it’ll just taste as the neutral industrial yoghurt, and you can make even with the yoghurt you buy in the supermarket. And once you make some you can make it forever because the bacteria is still there. Just save a little bit every time you do it. For real difference in taste you need wild yoghurt culture (we can it kefir here). That’s a whole another product, maybe sometimes too fermented taste for some.

  • If you love pesto, you’ve gotta get the Chloe Flavor vegan cookbook by Chloe Coscarelli! She has a 5-ingredient Kale Pesto that’s amazing hot and cold, plus other great recipes, like the best and fluffiest cornbread muffins on the planet! Unlike other vegan cookbooks, hers doesn’t use a lot of weird processed ingredients and mainly sticks to whole foods. They are simple and delicious!:) Link: https://www.amazon.com/Chloe-Flavor-Saucy-Crispy-Spicy/dp/045149962X/ref=asc_df_045149962X/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312104252832&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=4297672385545322524&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1027519&hvtargid=pla-422464737054&psc=1

  • Well done Jana. I’ll be there. What time does the party start again? I forgot. I’m bringing the potato salad and some sliced cucumbers. Lol. Hope you had a great time. God bless you.

  • Hi Lucie! Thank you for producing interesting&inspiring videos all the time!
    How about “5 Days of Learning 5 musical instruments” next time??
    Like recording a bit of the melody played by different instruments every day and remix them together as a piece of work!
    I think it would be fun!

  • I’ve been introduced to this book a month ago
    I’m keto, the rest of my familly si not. It’s soooo easy to adjust the recepies to fit our needs

  • I’m learning how to cook well so I will not get bored with my cooking options ��. I learn a lot from your videos. Subscribed. Thank you!

  • bonjour Jena,MMMMmmmm!!!que cela a l air délicieux,je vous regarde tout les jours,et je ne me lasse pas de vous regardez car vous êtes formidables et vous avez toujours quelques a faire et a montrer,je trouve cela génial!!!!bisous,florence devulder

  • All these are great tips, thank you man! I will give it a try now that I need to save some money; and since eating out is my top expense for the week, I will test your advises…cant wait to watch the rest of the videos in this series. Thanks again from Costa Rica.

  • Hi Jana! We’ll be right over! That chicken and the brownies �� look so good. I love almond Joy candy so I know they’ll be scrumptious! Thank you for sharing the recipes. ����������

  • Hi, which curry powder did you use in the last meal prep?
    Actually in one of your grocery haul, I saw packets of spices from ‘Catch’ brand.

  • The first recipe didn’t look healthy. The barbecue sauce is probably filled with sugar and loads of other junk and it looked like you used white rice which is just a filler. It’s still better than buying frozen meals though.

  • What can i say about you. U are just too good and perfect in everything. I am learning so much from you. Thank you I am so happy to have found u. God Bless u and your family.

  • Mmm! Everything looks so oishii, especially the hoikoro������ I love your channel!! Thank you so much for sharing your recipes as well as your knowledge��

  • I’m binge watching all of your meal prep videos and I’m trying to make the mayo-ketchup chicken today. I’m sure it’s gonna be delicous. Would also love to see some savoury pancake ideas and the different varieties of vegetables & minced meats that can be used. Something like okonomiyaki but with different veggies. I have tried mashed/grilled eggplant mixed with leftover minced pork �� Thank you for sharing all your recipes. You’re a life saver for a SAHM like me ��

  • This is a very thoughtful video, perfect and very comforting during a stressful time. Thank you for having so much consideration for your subscribers.

  • Thank you so much for the teriyaki sauce! It is better than anything I’ve tasted before. I love the meal prep especially since I found a source for some of the Japanese vegetables.

  • Hello Princess Bamboo, what is the container that you use for your salmon, the stainless steel one with the rack inside of it for marinating? What is it called or where can I buy one like this? Thank you!

  • Hi raveena I’m luisa single of Australia new subscriber of your channel,I loved watching your video I learned a lot and make our new home organised thank you so much for sharing us your video’s god bless you and your family Mabuhay also from my origin country Philippines ���� regards ��������

  • Thank you so much for this helpful video. I’m a 60-year-old divorced grandma who used to love cooking/baking-and I was real good. I worked as a cook off & on for many years, but due to physical problems I had to stop 10 years ago. I now work as a receptionist & haven’t cooked regularly since that time. I currently live alone in a small apartment w/a lousy kitchen, no range hood, no dishwasher, no garbage disposal, very little counter/cupboard space. Cooking was no fun any more; I just heated things up. I also live right down the street from my job, so I can go home for lunch, which is usually a sandwich or cheese & crackers. But my mother passed away last month & I’ll be moving in w/my elderly father in a few weeks-15 miles from my job. I won’t get home until 5:45 pm due to the traffic & then I’ll have to scramble for dinner when I walk in the door. My mother waited on him hand & foot, making sure he had a good meal every night at 6 p.m. (she was a fantastic cook). Even though he was fending for himself due to her illness, I know he would like a decent meal in the evening. There’s no way I’d say “absolutely not” to my dad-if he wants a meal at 6 pm, I’ll make him one. But I’m dreading the whole thing. I don’t plan menus, I just wander around the store & buy what I want, I don’t even budget for food. All this is going to have to change. I can’t remember how to cook anything & I’ll be leaving the house at 5 a.m. to swim at the local pool-which is a mile away from my job-and then I’ll be in the office at 6:20am (I don’t have to be there until 8am), keeping breakfast foods available for me at work, I’ll have to pack a lunch & sometimes buy TV dinners, then sitting in traffic, getting home around 5:45pm (if I’m lucky) and fixing dinner. My mind is reeling at what lies ahead of me-taking inventory of cupboards/fridge/freezer, keeping track of sales, planning menus, figuring out a food budget & staying within it, hauling it all home & putting it away, prepping as much as I can ahead of time, packing lunches, making dinners, cleaning up in kitchen. I’m so overwhelmed. But I notice that you have a small kitchen, no range hood, limited space, you manage to make great meals using the most basic ingredients, you are giving me hope! I have a crockpot & an Instapot but haven’t used the latter yet because I’m scared of it. I have a feeling I’ll be depending on those items. I’m trying to lose weigh (60 lbs) and my dad is a very basic, simple meat-and-potatoes man, I’m hoping I won’t have to cook two kinds of meals. Since I leave so early in the morning for work, he’s on his own for breakfast & lunch, but he’s used to that. I just have dinner & weekends to worry about. I feel as though I’m a newlywed again starting all over in the kitchen. But I’m determined to do all this & do it well. Your videos inspire me & I’m sure they’ll be a big help. Thanks so much!

  • Do the sweet potatoes you use have another name? I see yours have a white inside, I’m used to them being orange inside so I assume you’re using a different kind. Great series!

  • I am not even Japanese but I really want to eat like them because I absolutely love their culture so here I am watching how to make their foods.

  • thank you for all your amazing videos! the last few weeks i have almost watched all of your videos so far. your are very inspiring and you show how easy it actually is, to incorporate soo many cooking styles for somebodys daily meals. i also appreciate your attitude towards zero waste and just making as much out if it as possible. so many youtube chefs dont care about that at all.
    greetings from vienna

  • These recipes look amazing! Im definitely going to make them. I do need to modify the recipes a little since I don’t have some of the ingredients.

  • Question: how many people are these good for?? I worry that at the end of the week I have to check if some of the food has gone bad yet…How much I wish there is a clear measurement for every meal for everyone in the house!!! I also wonder how much totally would it need to be for a couple and one kid family? How about 2 kids family? How about a family with grandparents??……I get frustrated a lot when shopping in the store,, trying to get more variety of the food,,, knowing that some food might be wasted at the end… or not knowing what combos I can do with the same ingredients.. Still I’ll keep watching all these Japanese meal preps video in the middle of the night hoping to figure out something on my own….

  • Nice grt ideas….d cucumber with edges cut is just how we do it in Goa…n also d salsa…add a green chilli n a dash of lemon to it n its called tomato salad a must to go with d chick xacuti n bread n rice……yeah would likec to see d veg broth….

  • Yes!! thank you so much for this video!! I am so busy with my university classes that sometimes I feel like I can’t even eat!! This will be so helpful!! You’re the best:)

  • I was just looking for a way to make 16 simple meals for the busy work week. (I have learned in my working experience that I go to the same meal over and over again when I’m stressed. It’s like a comfort thing.) But this guy is way more advanced than I was hoping. Homemade yogurt and homemade almond milk is some high schooler shit. I just wanted some 2nd/3rd grader shit-basic and quick.

  • butternut squash is the one piece of produce I always get precut. My sanity will one day be undone but I refuse to let a squash be the thing that drives me loony.

  • These all look so good, especially that Korean inspired one! I love spicy food so I always have gochujang and garlic in my fridge. Thank you for posting these recipes. Hope you and your family are safe and healthy.

  • Instead of maple for the yogurt, add grounded garlic salt and black pepper then u can eat it with falafel or u can add chopped diced cucumbers and eat that with any Armenian or arabian dish that got rice and meat ��

  • Enjoyed this very much. Liked seeing your grocery store too. I think what you called lady fingers is known as okra in the US. You have inspired me to food prep more.

  • As a professional meal prep chef (personal chef), I think you’re doing a fantastic job! I like my pancakes fresh, so make numerous batches of the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, etc.), then pour into mason jars like pancake mix. When I’m ready, I just add almond milk, mashed banana and vanilla.

  • Hi Lucie! Thank you for producing interesting&inspiring videos all the time!
    How about “5 Days of Learning 5 musical instruments” next time??
    Like recording a bit of the melody played by different instruments every day and remix them together as a piece of work!
    I think it would be fun!

  • Thank you so much for this helpful video. I’m a 60-year-old divorced grandma who used to love cooking/baking-and I was real good. I worked as a cook off & on for many years, but due to physical problems I had to stop 10 years ago. I now work as a receptionist & haven’t cooked regularly since that time. I currently live alone in a small apartment w/a lousy kitchen, no range hood, no dishwasher, no garbage disposal, very little counter/cupboard space. Cooking was no fun any more; I just heated things up. I also live right down the street from my job, so I can go home for lunch, which is usually a sandwich or cheese & crackers. But my mother passed away last month & I’ll be moving in w/my elderly father in a few weeks-15 miles from my job. I won’t get home until 5:45 pm due to the traffic & then I’ll have to scramble for dinner when I walk in the door. My mother waited on him hand & foot, making sure he had a good meal every night at 6 p.m. (she was a fantastic cook). Even though he was fending for himself due to her illness, I know he would like a decent meal in the evening. There’s no way I’d say “absolutely not” to my dad-if he wants a meal at 6 pm, I’ll make him one. But I’m dreading the whole thing. I don’t plan menus, I just wander around the store & buy what I want, I don’t even budget for food. All this is going to have to change. I can’t remember how to cook anything & I’ll be leaving the house at 5 a.m. to swim at the local pool-which is a mile away from my job-and then I’ll be in the office at 6:20am (I don’t have to be there until 8am), keeping breakfast foods available for me at work, I’ll have to pack a lunch & sometimes buy TV dinners, then sitting in traffic, getting home around 5:45pm (if I’m lucky) and fixing dinner. My mind is reeling at what lies ahead of me-taking inventory of cupboards/fridge/freezer, keeping track of sales, planning menus, figuring out a food budget & staying within it, hauling it all home & putting it away, prepping as much as I can ahead of time, packing lunches, making dinners, cleaning up in kitchen. I’m so overwhelmed. But I notice that you have a small kitchen, no range hood, limited space, you manage to make great meals using the most basic ingredients, you are giving me hope! I have a crockpot & an Instapot but haven’t used the latter yet because I’m scared of it. I have a feeling I’ll be depending on those items. I’m trying to lose weigh (60 lbs) and my dad is a very basic, simple meat-and-potatoes man, I’m hoping I won’t have to cook two kinds of meals. Since I leave so early in the morning for work, he’s on his own for breakfast & lunch, but he’s used to that. I just have dinner & weekends to worry about. I feel as though I’m a newlywed again starting all over in the kitchen. But I’m determined to do all this & do it well. Your videos inspire me & I’m sure they’ll be a big help. Thanks so much!

  • I’m going to try these recipes out for me and my kids…They sound and look yummy and thank you for sharing them with us, appreciate it x

  • hey. Did Michael just get more used to being on camera or did the person who films you guys changed? I just find him way more at ease. Anyway, this is great! I love seeing your adventures <3

  • If you love pesto, you’ve gotta get the Chloe Flavor vegan cookbook by Chloe Coscarelli! She has a 5-ingredient Kale Pesto that’s amazing hot and cold, plus other great recipes, like the best and fluffiest cornbread muffins on the planet! Unlike other vegan cookbooks, hers doesn’t use a lot of weird processed ingredients and mainly sticks to whole foods. They are simple and delicious!:) Link: https://www.amazon.com/Chloe-Flavor-Saucy-Crispy-Spicy/dp/045149962X/ref=asc_df_045149962X/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312104252832&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=4297672385545322524&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1027519&hvtargid=pla-422464737054&psc=1

  • Yaas loved the dinner party part. Maybe 5 weeks of hosting at home (like dinner partys, special date nights, family gatherings, brunches, potluck…) I would love something like that. I always cook at home but find myself getting into a trot and than being overwhelmed when hosting. If it’s not too much stress Lucy I would love something like that:D

  • I thought the comments would be loaded with this tip, but I don’t see any in my scan. So, one of the things that stuck out to me, is to cook the butternut squash before trying to cut it. They are really always that hard if you don’t cook them first.

  • Very for grateful for finding this channel, new here. Love how you are real. This book is awesome. Thanks so much for sharing.

  • We love you lucie!!! You bring such a bright refresh to Refinery29! I want to see you try being a garbage man, it will be interesting ��

  • Nice grt ideas….d cucumber with edges cut is just how we do it in Goa…n also d salsa…add a green chilli n a dash of lemon to it n its called tomato salad a must to go with d chick xacuti n bread n rice……yeah would likec to see d veg broth….

  • I loved this video. It would be perfect for my daughter. But also I have lupus. Sometimes I have bad, achy days, and don’t feel up to doing anything. But by prepping things ahead it wouldn’t matter so much about the bad days. I could easily get out the prepped ahead food and have a good meal. Thanks so much! God bless you and your family. Mary from Ohio.

  • Washing raw chicken before cooking it can increase your risk of food poisoning from campylobacter bacteria. Splashing water from washing chicken under a tap can spread the bacteria onto hands, work surfaces, clothing, and cooking equipment…. Only a few campylobacter cells are needed to cause food poisoning.

  • you guys cooking together makes me so happy:) for a second, i thought the Fink-Morris family was vegetarian, but then Lucie and Michael made that chicken dish together, and i realized lucie was using vegetarian recipes

  • yeah homemade yogurt is good but doing it yourself every time is so time-consuming and expensive
    not worth it in my opinion, it should be more of a treat

  • Anyone else triggered by the fruits and veggies just in the basket without a bag?. Okay, just me �� Honestly, didn’t know this ever bothered me til this video. Sorry! I tried not comment on it.. but put it in bags people! For cleanliness reasons if anything. Okay sorry, goodbye. I love this channel regardless. Lol

  • Very nice recipes, thank you so much. Not only for the actual crisis, but also for me with long office hours it is good to have ready-made food with no suspicious ingredients in the freezer. I already prepared all of the recipes (including the 2 previous ones) and am happy with the short preparing time. Until now I ate only the curry recipe. Because of the lack of peas I put potato cubes into the pan. Very delicious and recommendable.

  • I was wondering why this video had dislikes… then I realized that Turkeys lost their sense of safety after learning they’d be hunted for more than a single day…

  • Thankyou for this meal prep and recipe,really big help for me as a working mom here in japan.Im looking forward for more easy recipe meal preparation.

  • I just started prepping my workfood… it started with precooking rice for more than a day and now its basically that I cook my whole meals for a six-day-week on sunday… At the moment the meal is pretty simple: rice, chicken and some gravy… Next turn I’m gonna steam me some brocolli, cawlyflower and carrots as well… and then I have to figure out maybe some variations… I can eat the same thing for a long time and especially when I start to mix it up with fruits (because basically my pure meal is a little small in calories) I hope that I can figure out a few different, tasteful variations or meal-compilations, which I can cook the week before to my gusto and what I would like to spice up my week with!

  • Yum! Delicious food. I love how you try a variety of food, and like show how you make it. The foods you try are unique and I really hope I try your food someday! All the food you try are super healthy and scrumptious, and you are very healthy! ����

  • Hey, I hope you see this. How do you use the leftover whey liquid that comes out of the yoghurt? You mentioned that you save it but you did not mention what it can be used for… Thanks 😉

  • Looks amazing! Looking forward to trying. �� My crew are the same ages as your kids when you started. Two boys, two girls too. I’m encouraged by the similarities and your creative solutions. Whoohoo!

  • that yogurt in a cloth on a hook is exactly how my family made homemade cottage cheese (tvorog) for about 200 years (as far as we can tell by our great-great-grandma’s notes), my mom still makes it like this

  • If anyone wants a quick and easy (and dairy free) alternative to the yoghurt, add a probiotic capsule to a (clean and sterilised) jar and add some coconut milk from a can. The coconut milk has to be additive free, and the probiotic capsule can’t contain prebiotics. Put a cloth on the jar and leave out for 1-2 days in a clean area. Check out Minimalist Baker easy coconut yoghurt for more instructions:D

  • wow, can I come for the roasted chicken dinner. I prep the same say, making up various parts of the meal and putting them together later and I make what I call homemade tv dinners that are specific to my diet. When one is very busy, it is nice to have those waiting for you at the end of the day.:-) Thank you for your wonderful and calm videos.

  • Your cooking videos have been some of the easiest, most helpful, and delicious ideas I have ever seen, and I watch countless other Youtube food channels! I made the spicy chicken stir-fry and hoikoro, both of which were fantastic. Thank you for these great tips during this time!

  • I’m learning how to cook well so I will not get bored with my cooking options ��. I learn a lot from your videos. Subscribed. Thank you!

  • I feel like we’re still cooking all week though…… lol
    My work schedule changed… looking for something I can prep and the kids can just throw in the oven for me on the day we’re eating…
    (They’re 14 and 13)

  • This was such a kickass videoinformative, concise, and food shots that made my mouth water Thanks so much for taking the time to put this together:D

  • butternut squash is the one piece of produce I always get precut. My sanity will one day be undone but I refuse to let a squash be the thing that drives me loony.

  • ALHAMDULILLAAH FOR THIS.
    WELL MIKE THANK YOU!!! I’m going to be married insyaa allaah in 2020, and i am planning to be a housewife, but i notice i couldnt fill my schedule ALL DAY for cooking right? I still need to be doing other than that. So meal prepping for my family i should do smartly&efficiently. Thank you, again. I am HAPPY and excited to learn and take lessons from this, AND THIS IS FREE?!! THANK YOU!

  • Easier way to make bone broth. Leave it in a slow cookers overnight in low. Warm fresh broth for the next day. Bonus: the meat is super tender and you get the marrow inside the bones which is amazing for nutrients and yummy

  • Good video, but I’ll just say the title is incredibly misleading. It’s actually exactly the opposite of what the video actually is.

  • I really need help with meal planning. We’re a disaster here. Way too much convenience food. I know how to cook I just don’t enjoy it. This method looks so easy.
    How well does the food keep in the fridge, particularly meat? Surely it won’t last a week.

  • All these are great tips, thank you man! I will give it a try now that I need to save some money; and since eating out is my top expense for the week, I will test your advises…cant wait to watch the rest of the videos in this series. Thanks again from Costa Rica.

  • Hi! My mom grew up in a village in Greece without electricity, so her way of making yogurt is a great option for those without an Instant Pot. She boils he yogurt to 200°F, puts it in a large bowl with a lid while it’s still hot and wraps it in a bunch of blankets or towels to keep the heat in as long as possible. She then places it in the warmest place in the house for a couple days and checks on it from time to time to see if it’s the consistency she wants. And that’s it!

  • Don’t send me a book plan to get it from my local library. HOWEVER, you’ve motivated me to check out the cookbook. Like you, I struggle with making good, nutritious meals that aren’t “whole day projects.” I want to be more successful at this, and I will definitely check out this cookbook! Thank you!

  • Yogourt: definitely don’t need the instant pot. For those who would like to try homemade yogourt without having to buy an instant pot (or save said instant pot for cooking a main course instead) using masson jars and incubating in the oven (non-LED light on) is great too! I even saw a lady do the incubating in a cooler container, using hot water to maintain the temperature nice and warm.

  • I was shocked when I found out farmers markets are a yank thing first and not English. Babe don’t have the same ring to it now showing my age a bit ��

  • I was just looking for a way to make 16 simple meals for the busy work week. (I have learned in my working experience that I go to the same meal over and over again when I’m stressed. It’s like a comfort thing.) But this guy is way more advanced than I was hoping. Homemade yogurt and homemade almond milk is some high schooler shit. I just wanted some 2nd/3rd grader shit-basic and quick.

  • Are you still using this cookbook? Can you make an update on this soon? I still haven’t tried this cookbook. But I’m still really interested.

  • Me encanto la receta del pastel espero qe hagas más se te da bien la cocina eres muy buena,espero tu próxima receta saludos desde huelva españa

  • bonjour Jena,MMMMmmmm!!!que cela a l air délicieux,je vous regarde tout les jours,et je ne me lasse pas de vous regardez car vous êtes formidables et vous avez toujours quelques a faire et a montrer,je trouve cela génial!!!!bisous,florence devulder

  • Well done Jana. I’ll be there. What time does the party start again? I forgot. I’m bringing the potato salad and some sliced cucumbers. Lol. Hope you had a great time. God bless you.

  • Hi Jana! We’ll be right over! That chicken and the brownies �� look so good. I love almond Joy candy so I know they’ll be scrumptious! Thank you for sharing the recipes. ����������

  • Your cooking videos have been some of the easiest, most helpful, and delicious ideas I have ever seen, and I watch countless other Youtube food channels! I made the spicy chicken stir-fry and hoikoro, both of which were fantastic. Thank you for these great tips during this time!

Because of the lack of peas I put potato cubes into the pan. Very delicious and recommendable.

  • Hi, which curry powder did you use in the last meal prep?
    Actually in one of your grocery haul, I saw packets of spices from ‘Catch’ brand.

  • I’m binge watching all of your meal prep videos and I’m trying to make the mayo-ketchup chicken today. I’m sure it’s gonna be delicous. Would also love to see some savoury pancake ideas and the different varieties of vegetables & minced meats that can be used. Something like okonomiyaki but with different veggies. I have tried mashed/grilled eggplant mixed with leftover minced pork �� Thank you for sharing all your recipes. You’re a life saver for a SAHM like me ��

  • Mmm! Everything looks so oishii, especially the hoikoro������ I love your channel!! Thank you so much for sharing your recipes as well as your knowledge��

  • looks like your at the prospect park market…check out my older brothers beer…From the Ground Brewery!!! im sure you have already tried it!

  • Crock pot and rice cooker are good choices for an easy home cooked meal. It is still more easier if you use frozen veggies or stir fry for your meals

  • i hate all of the hate in these comments. guys, she older than she was in 2014 so obviously she sounds more scripted its because she more mature now. i personally love this video:)

  • These recipes look amazing! Im definitely going to make them. I do need to modify the recipes a little since I don’t have some of the ingredients.

  • Aloha,We are watching this video much later than originally filmed and getting ready for homeschooling and school to start. We’re wondering if you’re still using this cook once eat all week method? We are thinking of buying the cookbook to use for ease of living.
    Love your channel, you have really impacted our lives.

  • I’m in!! I DID just weed out some of my storage containers though-and put the lids on the ones I kept! LOL! AlsoLOVE the boundaries tipit has helped a lot! Thanks

  • Thank you so much for doing all this amazing work, Mike! I LOVE these types of videos and you include so many awesome tips. Buying a whole chicken, roasting it, deboning it, and making broth is my favorite prep item to get done on the weekends.

  • My wife and I tired this book after she watched the review and it has basically become the cook book I plan our eating around. We normally cook two different “weeks” of food and plan to work a seafood in once a week. Interestingly, enough I am not sure how much i actually follow the recipes it is more of an ingredient guide to me at this point. We normally add back in the gluten free component with an equal amount of the gluten free ingredient. For example: 12oz zucchini noodles and 12 of pasta. Thank you for the recommendation your channel has helped our family a lot.

  • Enjoy watching your videos feel satisfied someone keeping the home beautifully organised with such ease, love & patience, feel like I’m watching a short film.

  • This seems to be an ideal cookbook. My family is also very picky including myself, so it will be a fun journey watching to see what you make from it. Thank you for sharing!!

  • Ordered the book from amazon, very meat heavy, the concept is great, the recipes are tasty if you like lots of meat. Just doesn’t work for us.

  • About the yoghurt if it’s industrial bacteria it’ll just taste as the neutral industrial yoghurt, and you can make even with the yoghurt you buy in the supermarket. And once you make some you can make it forever because the bacteria is still there. Just save a little bit every time you do it. For real difference in taste you need wild yoghurt culture (we can it kefir here). That’s a whole another product, maybe sometimes too fermented taste for some.

  • In 73 days I will begin taking classes at Oxford University. I’m not a senior but not too far away, so this is a dream for me. Meanwhile, I work full time and need to keep the household running while I study. And I have a gluten allergy. So I am very interested in cooking easily by preparing ahead. Thank you for this video.

  • Oh my gosh I am so excited to try this out I think I definitely will give it a try. I am in the same boat with three little picky eaters and a picky eating husband too! The one thing that absolutely sold me on trying this is not only the time saver and energy saving of making daily decisions about what to make but also the allergy friendly options! My little guy is autistic and gluten free, I’m gluten free, my daughter is rice free (I’ll have to do something aside from the rice casserole for her but the Paleo options would work ��) and my husband is mustard, tomato and peppers (hot peppers bell peppers etc) free… Let’s just say cooking in my house can feel like a nightmare on some days but I really want to give this weekly planning a try it would be amazing to not have to cook three different meals just for supper! Thank you so much for your videos I have been loving all of them!! ����

  • Thanks for making this video! I am stay at home wife and mother of 3 girls ages 6, 5, and 6 months, dinner time is crazy pants in our home.This cook is exactly what I need. I just ordered and it should be tomorrow.����

  • Make a video on the appliances you used in this video…knife, basket, containers, chopsticks, chopping board, all..with their brand names and shopping link
    I want to buy these ��������

  • I love the idea, and the fact that it’s gluten-free, but only 3 meals per week? Also, did your family get tired of the same kinds of ingredients during the week?

  • Me encanto la receta del pastel espero qe hagas más se te da bien la cocina eres muy buena,espero tu próxima receta saludos desde huelva españa

  • Bought the book back when I first saw the video, finally, FINALLY, used it. The broccoli/bbq recipe was great. My girl ate it all mixed up and said it was really good. She wanted more bbq. Lol. Thanks for the ideas!

  • Someone told me about site called NextLevelDiet. Let me tell you something: This sh*t is really next level!!! Fat cells are leaving my body like never before. Goodbye belly fat. Welcome six pack.

  • Now that a little time has passed since you first tried this book. Do you still find it helpful, do you still use it? What are your thoughts on it now? thanks Fiona

  • Yum! Delicious food. I love how you try a variety of food, and like show how you make it. The foods you try are unique and I really hope I try your food someday! All the food you try are super healthy and scrumptious, and you are very healthy! ����

  • Hi Dawn, I really enjoy your channel and, oh boy, I am so tired of stuff.
    Anyway, I came to say something about meal plan.
    I found this app that I love, called MeaLime. I think you should give it a shot. You can choose your food preferences and the app will make your shopping list.
    Also in the phone if you choose the cooking mode when making the recipe you don’t touch your phone, just kind of cover the camera with your hand (just to shade, without touching the phone, and will go to the next step in the recipe (this doesn’t happen with iPad…:(
    Also the ingredients are listed (again) during the meal process.

    In my opinion the very best meal app i found. And it’s free. They have some recipes for pro app but you can feed your family for a loooong time just with the free option.

    One idea: for the “prep”, I think if we just chop veggies previously and let meat pre cut will be a big help. But even chopping and doing all the work when making a new recipe I never spent more than 40 minutes.

    Even my husband likes it!
    The food is really yummy, my son likes everything I made from there.

    I think more people would

  • I’ve done this and it really works. I was surprised at just how much money I saved following a plan. My issue now though is I can’t find what I need when I need it. Either that, or the produce isn’t fresh. Our Walmart is bad about that. Allowing “organic” produce to sit… until it rots.

  • A hack for slicing grape tomatoes is to place them between two lids and slicing them horizontally. You slice them much quicker than going one by one.

  • I’m really interested in getting this book! Thanks for the review! I have a family 6 and we never have enough time in our evenings for “good” meals. I would love to be able to do the prep once and just throw the rest together. Hopefully this works for us (and my fussy eaters!)

  • My biggest mealtime struggle is that it’s ready to go, and the other is honestly that meals in meal preparation aren’t always super appetizing!

  • Washing raw chicken before cooking it can increase your risk of food poisoning from campylobacter bacteria. Splashing water from washing chicken under a tap can spread the bacteria onto hands, work surfaces, clothing, and cooking equipment…. Only a few campylobacter cells are needed to cause food poisoning.

  • I was initially skeptical when you mentioned cookbook because they’re typically full of items to which my husband is either intolerant or allergic, but you grabbed me with GF& low dairy / conversion to Paleo, etc. I’m trying to help lower our food budget while also helping my husband eat better within his newly-discovers dietary constraints, so I may just have to grab this cookbook & see how / if it can work well for us. Thanks for showcasing this! ��

  • Wow! I asked for easy recipes and I LOVED each and everything you’ve prepared. Excellent system at the grocery stores. In the USA there are some states that are beginning to charge.10 cents per plastic bag at the supermarket. One of my friends who lives in Maryland, Washington brings her own bags to avoid paying for those bags. You peeled your apples ahead of time, don’t you put lemon over it so that they won’t get brown? By the way you have an excellent Spanish pronunciation. Thank you for everything.Looking forward to more recipes. ������������������

  • I’m always looking for a healthy meal prep that is not complicated.. seems like this checks the boxes. I am new to your channel and am enjoying it very much.. thank you for your hard work

  • Great video. have been slowing minimising our home, ����trying to destress our lives��
    I have already try soo many different meal prep ideas, parts of them work and another part don’t but this looks wonderful. Thank you love your channel

  • I LOVE everything about this! So in alignment with the foods that we eat and I’ve been really wanting to learn how to flavor my meals up a bit.

    I typically do large batches of meat in the crock pot or on the grill, three days per week. I cook rice twice per week and not have to cook veggies in the evening. However, sometimes I don’t know how to put them together like this, so I’m super excited to get this book!
    P.S. I also make larger meals each day so I have enough left overs for lunch the next day. I have special Pyrex dishes for 2 personal lunch meals. This way, my hubby and I can have lunch together every day because it saves us so much time! I just warm up each dish and it saves me on dishes too. ����

  • A lot of people today are working to find out the best way to lose weight. Then again, having the ability to discover a diet plan that can work for you is tough to discover. A very important thing you want to comprehend is that a diet that works for one person might not operate for another. And that means you have to know what your getting into before you start one of those diets. This can provide you enough info to find out if this really is something which is appropriate to your needs. Read more here https://truehealthreport.com/xtreme-fat-loss-diet-review/

  • If you ask me, it’s really hard to gain muscle and lose weight at the same time, but website called NextLevelDiet is great for that. They also calculate your BMI and calorie intake for FREE and provide you with diet meal plan and training plan.

  • Although that cauliflower “rice” bowl looked very pretty, I doubt it had any flavor. I mean black beans from a can? Seriously? But the butternut squash looked ok. Might try that…minus the enchilada sauce.

  • Yaas loved the dinner party part. Maybe 5 weeks of hosting at home (like dinner partys, special date nights, family gatherings, brunches, potluck…) I would love something like that. I always cook at home but find myself getting into a trot and than being overwhelmed when hosting. If it’s not too much stress Lucy I would love something like that:D

  • hey. Did Michael just get more used to being on camera or did the person who films you guys changed? I just find him way more at ease. Anyway, this is great! I love seeing your adventures <3

  • I Love hummus!!! I’m definitely going to try from now on making my own. Definitely going to try mash potatoe hack. You’re right most of the starch boils out into the water. Thanks!

  • I love the idea of planning a weeks dinners and lunches to save time. I should prep like this before workdays when you are to tired to cook for a long time.

  • yeah homemade yogurt is good but doing it yourself every time is so time-consuming and expensive
    not worth it in my opinion, it should be more of a treat

  • Outstanding!!’ U manage cooking process so effortlessly.. and that too in such a neat and clean way..!!! You’ll don’t have Indian meals???

  • wow, can I come for the roasted chicken dinner. I prep the same say, making up various parts of the meal and putting them together later and I make what I call homemade tv dinners that are specific to my diet. When one is very busy, it is nice to have those waiting for you at the end of the day.:-) Thank you for your wonderful and calm videos.

  • Hi Raveena ji,
    I enjoyed watching ur cooking. I loved ur lunch. Yummy. The shopping idea was great. Packing the vegetables in the refrigerator was class. U r a great woman of inspiration. Lot to learn from u. A big hug and kiss to u��������

  • Hello mam.. I am your new subscriber… I have watched ur couple of videos…. Nd I felt in love with ur style…. In which country do you stay??? It doesn’t seem to be India

  • Enjoy watching your videos feel satisfied someone keeping the home beautifully organised with such ease, love & patience, feel like I’m watching a short film.

  • A hack for slicing grape tomatoes is to place them between two lids and slicing them horizontally. You slice them much quicker than going one by one.

  • Wonderful video! I love burdock root and I get it from the Asian Market near me. I usually stir fry it or add it to rice casseroles in my rice cooker. I’ll definitely try this teriyaki method! Thank you for the prep ideas, I’m looking forward to the next video!

  • Did your family get tired of chicken all week? I love doing prep and often cook chicken ahead and brown very lean hamburger on the weekends to help us during the week. Sounds good.

  • Simple,easy and wonderful,Mam! Your meal planning and meal prep everything is a learning experience. Your vlogs always inspire me and I try to follow.
