    Would love it if Josh tackles not just this method of meal prep but the component style of meal prep – the kind where you make a few veggies, a few proteins, and can mix and match to make different style bowls or wraps. This video definitely is the most interesting meal prep video for the “multiple containers” method (if I have to see another taco salad I swear-) but for those of us who can’t stand eating the same meal seven times in a row (or even more than once!) I’d love to see variety!

      @Dan Pettit well the thing is that’s not healthy for you. Most influencers are health coaches and they even recomend to put your phone away

    • Dan Pettit says:

      I still haven’t found anyone on YouTube that can do meal prep for active people, i.e. delivery drivers. I need something that I can hold in my hand while I drive that is healthy. Has to be something that freezes well. I’ve done tacos/small burritos but I’d like to try something different but I don’t know what.

      Check out @EthanChlebowski channel ! He does great videos

    ​I have done meal prep before, and my lesson is to avoid leafy greens, because they won’t stay fresh in fridge, especially if you dress the salad in advance it wilts super fast, like immediately. Also, you can’t heat lettuce in microwave. Better veggie options for meal prep are broccoli or green beans. 🙂

    • E Griffin says:

      @Raptus Yeah. Better option is if eating it for breakfast, to just cook the eggs and patty before hand, store them, and then reheat them while making the toast fresh. It eat at home before work or on the way to.

    • adam1987 says:

      @Crack Shot i think your missing the point of meal prep and watching the wrong video.

    • A duck of some sort says:

      @Crack Shot meal prep means you prepare the meals, not that you cook them all at once.

    • Bob Brown says:

      I like my meals fresh also, but I don’t have time to cook three meals a day. It works better if you keep the enter separate (meat, rice, vegetables, salads) and heat them separately. The video tried to make it look like takeout food.

    • Crack Shot says:

      @adam1987 It is if you’re motivated and creative enough. And yes, I’ve had a job working 50-65.5 hrs 6 days a week.

  4. Jade says:

    I would have liked to see how you would be storing these and heating them up still expecting them to be nice after even a few days in the fridge. Videos like these helps me with making meals for 12 hour shifts but also still having a good healthy meal at home before or after. A series on this would be great!

    • Luna Vespertine says:

      Yeah, this is what always makes or breaks meal prep for me. I really don’t enjoy eating everything cold or stale/soggy and if it won’t reheat well I’ll be dreading it all week until it ultimately ends up in the trash. That’s why I prefer Ethan Chlebowski’s method of doing only the prep work beforehand and the actual cooking on the day of. You can still do that with a lot of these dishes but the sandwich really is a no-go for me personally.

    • Samuel says:

      @Indigo Kitty Why would you even think to put an egg sandwich in the microwave? They are commonly eaten cold, just like everything else in this video.

    • Lori Carroll says:

      can do a lot of the prep and cooking on like Sunday and then do meal assembly night of for the next day. Treat it like components. The shopping and major cooking can be knocked out on a day off, then assembly is just 10 or so min. Salad especially, but that dressing can be assembled and getting all yummy as it has time to meld, while the salad it self stays fresh and whole till needed.

    • Indigo Kitty says:

      Yeah I can’t imagine how that egg sandwich is gonna be on day 3 out of the microwave

    • Fyre says:

      @Samuel Nope but it is fowl

    Josh, for the love of whatever you find holly, please make more meal prep content like this one. I always found my self working 3 hours in a kitchen doing this, and I’m feeling incredibly stupid for never thinking on using a Sous Vide to make my life easy. Also I’m awaiting on you next book, I’m almost done making all the recipes in the first one <3

    • ChaiHeroBay says:

      @SirBlacksmith Also, he probably has a better kitchen setup than most. In my case I don’t have a dishwasher so whenever I cook this is a fact I always have to consider when deciding how ambitious I want to be.

    • Preston Feivor says:

      @SirBlacksmith wait really? I didn’t know that thanks! First off, he didn’t include the time for prepping and bagging the proteins for some reason? Also have to fill up and heat that sous vide water. Also grilling takes a while to setup. Just the fact that he never includes measuring out ingredients or anything like that or any cleanup, skips a lot or prep and mise en place.

    • SirBlacksmith says:

      @Preston Feivor he’s a professional chef my guy, he said in the video that this time is for him, might take others a bit longer

    • Preston Feivor says:

      Sadly this is definitely still a 3 hour process, I wish he would be more honest about it.

    As a man struggling through his own weight loss journey, thank you Joshua.

  8. Forrest Hogshire says:

    Thank you for this Josh. Cooking healthier meals to hit a macro/caloric goal can be some of the most fun I have in the kitchen as it forces me to get creative, but it’s easy to run out of ideas and hit a rut. Would love more ideas in the future and good luck hitting your goals!

  9. Eric Demamp says:

    We need more meal prep content. This is especially for those that are trying to stay in shape/lose weight.

  10. John Hardy says:

    Thanks Josh. Covid pushed us all to cook more and improve the quality of our cooking and your channel certainly has some bangerz, but my cardiologist suggested less butter and fats so I appreciate some healthy delicious meal prep for those of us tryna be healthy bois
