You’re going to love these easy meal prep recipes that will take the stress out of your daily meals, and most importantly, they are all delicious!

Why Meal Prep?

  • Helps you reduce stress and time in the kitchen. Having meal ideas minimizes stress, allowing you to focus on what matters without the added pressure of last-minute meal preparation. Meal prepping saves you valuable time during busy weekdays by having ready-to-eat or easily prepared meals available.
  • Allows you to make healthier choices. Planning and preparing meals in advance helps you make healthier choices. You have full control over the ingredients and portions and minimize the chance of getting another take-out.
  • Reduce food waste and save money. It’s undeniable that cooking at home saves you money, but did you know that by properly and efficiently meal prepping, you will also avoid food waste? With intentionality, you can use up all the fresh produce and proteins you purchased without them going bad.

Tips for meal prepping

  1. Pick a good variety of meals. Food boredom is real, so don’t feel like you will get stuck eating the same meals day in and day out. Pick out around 20 meals (breakfasts, lunches, and dinners) that you like and keep rotating them around for variety.
  2. Make a calendar. Make a monthly menu for yourself for breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. You can easily see where leftovers can be used when you have everything written down. To help with budgeting, it’s often good to make a double batch of a meal and enjoy it later in the week or enjoy lighter lunches over a few days.
  3. Make a shopping list. The key to successful meal planning is to prep ahead so that you always know what you are picking up from the store so you have everything to hand.
  4. Buy a mix of fresh and frozen produce. It’s great to include fresh foods in your diet, but frozen is still great quality and much more convenient, and often more budget-friendly. Stock up your freezer with frozen veggies, fruits, and meats so that you don’t have to worry about using them up quickly.
  5. Choose a day to cook up your food. Choose one day a week to cook up the majority of your meals for the week. Batch cook recipes and portion them out so that all you have to do is grab and reheat them for an easy dinner.
  6. Choose some freezer friendly meals. The freezer is your friend! Soups, chilis, stews, pies and so much more, are great for freezer meals. Make up big batches to freeze to enjoy over the weeks. Be sure to check out my guide on How to Make Freezer Meals for Families.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What ingredients are best for freezer-friendly meals?

Hearty grains like rice and quinoa and pre-cooked proteins like chicken or beef freeze well. Additionally, pantry staples like beans, lentils, and other legumes are great options for freezing. Avoid freezing ingredients with high water content and delicate textures like lettuce or dairy.

How can I prevent my salad from becoming soggy during meal prep?

The best way to keep your salad crisp and fresh is to keep the dressing separate and add it to the salad just before eating. Or you can layer ingredients in a specific order to create a barrier between wet and dry ingredients.

What are good make-ahead snacks?

Some great make-ahead snack options include energy bites, trail mix cookies, cut veggies with individual hummus or ranch dip, yogurt parfaits, or homemade granola bars. These items are convenient, portable, and maintain their freshness.
