Kick off the new year with meal prepping strategies customized for people living with myasthenia gravis (MG).
Have you, like many others, resolved to eat healthier this year? Healthy eating is a worthy goal, and a lot can be achieved simply by eating less takeout and processed food. However, for those with myasthenia gravis symptoms, this resolution may cause more muscle fatigue from extra time spent in the kitchen.1 Fortunately, meal prepping, or cooking meals in advance, can be a flexible way to make home cooking more practical.
MG United partnered with Chef Kim Mills and Megan Stanley, a certified nutritionist, to create this step-by-step meal prep guide for people living with MG. While this guide can help you get started, keep in mind that there is no one correct way to meal prep. Create a plan that matches your energy, schedule, cooking ability and food preferences. Don’t worry if your first meal prep doesn’t go as well as you had hoped. Like any new habit, you’ll get better at it as time goes on.
