It does feel good to eat good because eating is not only the nourishment for your body but also the bread for your soul. Malaysia is the food heaven, the temptations of nasi lemak, late night mamak binge, savoury curry mee, Sarawak ‘kolo mee’, mee jawa, nasi kukus, asam laksa, are always hovering about Malaysians appetite, we eat what we crave more often than we eat what we are supposed to.

One of the key ways of getting physically healthy other than being physically active, is to have a good diet. After all, who does not want to look good and feel good? But, it would be a toilsome treachery for Malaysians to eat healthy given that the food heaven is right in front of us, because one of the seven deadly sins- gluttony, is at a constant hunt for us, like a hungry hyena prepped to attack anytime. Sadly, but truly what is tasty, is not necessarily healthy.

After 30 weeks of meal prepping dedication I am ready to write this post and to make you believe, if I can do it, you can do it too. The prime reason of my decision is that I wanted to give myself an opportunity to dive into a healthier lifestyle. Similar to most of the college students, I used to eat out more often than not and usually my choices of meals were no where as healthy as what you see in my meal prep archive above.

I was living this ‘toxic’ life until I encountered this book, The Right Bite, by Jackie Lynch, which overturned my perception for food. After more ‘researches’ had been carried out on the internet, I made my decision to start this journey of meal prepping. It allows me to have a total insight of what I am eating at a regular basis because I am responsible for buying and cooking the ingredients, I am also able to design a far more balanced and natural meal.

The most conspicuous benefit to a college student like me is cost saving. Meal prepping definitely helps me out a lot by reducing my expenses on food because I am the one who chooses, controls, hand-picks everything that I would consume in the meals to come, it is more economical compared to eating outside (ask any housewives or home cooks if you do not believe me, or just do some simple Maths to calculate and compare). It also saves me from the costs of leading an unhealthy lifestyle, literally and figuratively.

My discipline is also being fortified during this process, I would have to adhere to the food pyramid, and eat accordingly, at a consistent time, not having any more suppers in my 30 weeks meal prep. At times, McDonalds, or the mamak would drag me into its doorstep just to taste a piece of roti canai, or the one ringgit ice cream, but I have the savvy of the benefits of my meal prep, and to not be tempted to eat other things rather than my meal prep.

It does feel good. I am not sure it is me or not, I do feel better in this period of meal prepping because of the fact that I know what I am eating gives me the assurance that only I could give to myself. Not only that, imagine the gratitude and joy that inundates, overflows as you partake of the very first bite of your food, that you spent your effort to put it on the plate. Plus, gluttony would not be sauntering at the appetite any more longer.

Writer’s note: This is Kelvin’s idea, and when I am writing this for him, I really do feel that the healthy lifestyle is the way to go. In truth, it is very difficult to execute it just by saying so. Conundrums, obstacles would be the main hindrance for us because parts of us are in the hands of gluttony. Thus, I would encourage every reader to heed his advice and lead a healthier lifestyle, I would definitely give it a go in the future.
