Meal Prep Lunch and Dinners in Darwin

Meal Preperation Lunch and Dinners in Darwin NT

Meal preparation a.k.a let's-be-lazy-the-whole-week is a food revolution that's taking the world a little while to get their head around. It's pre-packaged, home cooked style meals for the week, primed and ready for your microwave and mouth in that particular order.

Some places gives a breakdown of nutrients per meal - look out for the term 'macro' and a hefty table of numbers.

You can totally do it yourself but, let's be honest, it's always better when someone else cooks for you :)

Wait no more! Here's our list of meal-preppers in Darwin.
