Our story

In 2016, I started a truck driving job. I was working 60 to 70 hours a week, with early starts and late finishes leaving me no time to prepare meals in the morning or evening. My options on the road were limited and often unhealthy. I decided to go to the farmers market on Sunday mornings and spend the afternoon cooking meals for the week with the fresh produce I had bought. Working 12+ hours a day I needed nutritious, balanced meals to fuel my brain and body.

I cooked 100% plant-based meals that stayed fresh and tasted great days after they have been cooked. The benefits of eating a plant based diet became evident to me almost immediately, I had more energy, clearer skin and stronger hair.

I really enjoyed creating new recipes and discovering new cuisines every week, particularly the challenge and creativity in creating meat and dairy free versions of popular and classic dishes – the possibilities are infinite! I have always loved cooking for other people and sharing recipes and ideas, so when friends and collegues began taking an interest in my weekly meal prep for work. I began to wonder if I could expand and start providing weekly meals for other people.

‘Prep’ was born!

I built a small client base that continued to grow, many of whom were meat eaters, keen to try and adopt a healthier, plant based diet a couple days a week, but lacked the time or knowledge to be able to.

The benefits to us and our environment of eating less meat and dairy are well documented.

My mission is to build a brand that everyone can trust and also make it easy for everyone to eat a varied, nutritious and most importantly, delicious plant based diet.
