A WOMAN shared her super intense meal prep routine, claiming that it helps her save money and time.
Many viewers, however, couldn’t believe she was eating the same batch of left over scrambled eggs for several days in a row.
Tiktok user @bariatricqueen explained her food prep routine in a recent viral video.
In the video, she says: “Each week I start with a plan and pick healthy foods I love to eat.
“For a person of one, my grocery bill typically comes to $40.
“When I’m done grocery shopping, I come home and set aside a few hours to meal prep. Not only am I eating for $8 a day, but each meal only costs $1.50.
“When’s the last time your lunch was $1.60?”
The video has racked up over 5 million views, and some viewers were impressed with the meal prep routine.
“Just post that grocery list”, said one encouraging viewer, while another wrote: “That’s awesome.”
Many commenters, however, weren’t on board with this Tiktok user’s meal prep schedule.
“Imagine eating one day old scrambled eggs… and then five days old”, said one critical viewer.
Another wrote: “How do you eat eggs that have been there eight days? I can’t even eat eggs left over from the same day.”
“Meal prep is great. However, I can only meal prep for 3-4 days max lol. And then I’ll cook again cause I can’t stand food in a container for too long”, a third agreed.
Some commenters had tried the technique, but couldn’t stomach eating the same left overs for days on end.
“Tried it but after day 3 I grew tired of eating the same food”, wrote one.
Another agreed: “It gets soggy after two days and the food would be old by day five.”
