In the fast-paced world we live in, where time is a precious commodity, mastering the art of meal prep can be a game-changer, especially for solo diners. Let’s dive into the benefits, mindset, and practical strategies to make meal prep a seamless part of your routine.

Preparing meals ahead of a busy work week epitomises short-term pain, long-term gain. The upfront time and effort you invest pays dividends throughout the week. Meal prepping gives you more time for the more important things: rest, relaxation, connecting with family and friends, pursuing hobbies and goals.

By incorporating The St. Food Co. meals into your meal prep routine, you can enhance this benefit even further. Our chef-prepared dishes are designed to be both delicious and nutritionally balanced, ensuring that you have healthy options ready to enjoy, day in, day out, without the hassle of cooking from scratch.

Benefits of Meal Prepping for One

Save Time and Effort

Spending just a couple of hours on a weekend afternoon prepping meals means no more scrambling for dinner ideas or last-minute trips to the grocery store. When cooking for one, preparing multiple meals at once can be a significant time-saver.

The St. Food Co. offers a variety of ready-made meals perfect for meal prepping. By including our meals in your plan, you can save even more time and effort, as our dishes require minimal preparation and are ready to heat and eat.

Save Money & Prevent Wastage

By buying ingredients in bulk and cooking in batches, you’ll not only reduce your grocery bill but also minimise food waste. Plus, with meals ready to go, you’ll be less tempted to order expensive takeout or fast food delivery.


With a fridge stocked full of prepped ingredients and meals, you’ll never have to wonder what’s for dinner again. Whether you’re rushing home from work or just don’t feel like cooking, a delicious homemade meal is always within reach.

The St. Food Co. takes convenience to the next level. Our meals are delivered fresh to your door, eliminating the need to go to the grocery store, and are delivered completely ready to heat and eat in just 3 minutes. 

Save Brain Space

Say goodbye to decision fatigue! Meal prepping frees up valuable mental energy that can be better spent on other tasks or simply unwinding after a long day.

Healthy Eating Made Easy

With meals prepped and portioned in advance, you’ll have better control over your portions and ingredients, making it easier to stick to your health and wellness goals.

Our meals are not only tasty but also nutritionally balanced, making them perfect for everyday consumption. Our meals come with pre-determined macros, making it effortless for you to track what you’re eating without the hassle of weighing and portioning food yourself. The St. Food Co. ensures that you get the right mix of proteins, vegetables, and grains, helping you stay on track with your health goals.

Meal Prep Options

When it comes to meal prepping, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach. Explore different methods and find what works best for you. Whether you prefer to prep whole meals or assemble ingredients fresh, the key is finding a routine that fits your lifestyle and preferences.

Prep Whole Meals

One popular approach to meal prep is preparing whole meals in advance and portioning individually, so when hunger strikes they are ready to heat and eat. Curries, stir fries, casseroles, and pastas are popular recipe ideas for this method.

Prep Ingredients

Another popular approach to meal prep is ingredient-based, where you batch cook key components like proteins, grains, sauces, and sides, then mix and match them to create a variety of meals throughout the week. This method offers flexibility and allows for endless customisation, making it perfect for those who crave variety and enjoy getting creative in the kitchen.

For those who prefer the convenience of ingredient-based meal prep without sacrificing flavour or quality, consider incorporating The St. Food Co. Family Feeds into your rotation- a favourite of batch meal-preppers.  We craft big batches of delicious protein and meat dishes, so you don’t have to. Use these as the cornerstone of your batch prep, alongside steamed rice, pasta, and veggies for an easy, breezy weekly meal prep.
