    a 'prepared meal' is one that was cooked and made ready for eating at a later date. For example, these are the meals that you can buy frozen in supermarkets and grocery stores, in alluminium foil trays inside cardboard boxes.

    'preparing' means the person is actually in the act of cooking or making some food ready to eat
