40 inch redfish

Hey, I’m Rich!

I’m a husband, pastor, part-time seminary student, and a totally obsessive dog owner. 

I love to read, write, work out, preach, and most of all, spend quality time with my wife. 

I also cook obscene amounts of food. 

<– That’s me with a 41 inch redfish 🙂

I launched MealPrepify because I wanted to help people learn how to save time, save money, and eat healthier. 

Meal prep can do exactly that. 

Meal prepping has helped me save hundreds of $$$ a month on food, gain muscle, lose fat, and it saves me hours every single week. 

Our mission here at MealPrepify is to help people meal prep today, save time tomorrow, and eat healthy for life. 

How I became a meal prep fanatic

I became a fan of meal prep about 10 years ago. 

I was a junior in high school and trying to cut 20 pounds for wrestling season. My mom got tired of cooking me a separate, healthy dinner so she told me to start making my own food. 

I did what everyone told me to do.

I made chicken, broccoli, and brown rice, which was the only thing anyone knew how to meal prep 10 years ago. 

It took about 2 weeks for me to get sick of bland chicken and boiled veggies. 

I had to learn how to get creative with spices, flavors, and different food combinations. I mastered a few basics, which was enough for me to get by. I didn’t have time to cook every day, so I’d grill chicken and fish in bulk and pack my lunches ahead of time.  

Right before college my mom bought me my first crock pot. I’d drop ingredients in, press start, go to class, and come back with a full meal ready to go. I always had enough for 4-5 servings of leftovers that I’d eat throughout the week.

Now that I’m 5 years post-grad I’m busier than ever trying to keep all the plates spinning: pastoring in a church, grad school, being a good husband, working out, and running a couple of websites. 

Through every season of life, meal prepping has been one of my key habits for optimizing my time and saving money along the way.
