How One Life Meals Actually Saves You Time & Money

 In Health and Fitness

Do you know much time & money you spend on grocery shopping, cooking food, or going out for food every single week? Most people are not aware of the time and money that they invest in food alone!

According to my calculations (see detailed chart at the bottom of this page), if you cook food daily you spend about 18 hours grocery shopping, cooking, and cleaning every single week. That’s almost equivalent to one entire day of your week spent on food alone!

What if you decide to eat out daily instead of cooking? Sure, you will save a lot of time but how much money are you spending? Around $300 every week! Also, not to mention that most people don’t choose the healthiest food options when they have to go quickly grab a bite to eat on their lunch break. You’re also spending your precious lunch break going to and lining up.

What would happen if you decide to meal prep instead? You’d spend about 12 hours a week purchasing food, preparing food, and cooking. Although 12 hours is less than the previous example of 18 hours, it still is a lot of time per week! For busy parents or professionals, that could be better spent with your loved ones or doing other things you actually enjoy.

The 0 Hour Option

Or you could purchase One Life Meals instead of the previous options. One Life Meals costs you 0 hours per week and only around $200 for 3 meals per day (18 meals total). You will save up to 18 hours of time each week and it guarantees that every single meal that you eat will be a healthy option. You don’t need to waste time grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, or waiting in line for food!



Stress is terrible for a productive lifestyle; the less stress, thinking and planning, the better. The key is to automate processes and delegate. Peace of mind and free time are priceless in today’s world!

When calculating weekly food cost, please factor in your time spent shopping, cooking and cleaning. These numbers are conservative as minimum wage hourly rates were used in this study.
