Batch cook. Prepare meals in a slow cooker or oven that can be frozen for later.
Maybe, your go-to protein is chicken. Prepare several chicken breasts that can be stored in a Ziploc bag for either your refrigerator or freezer. Hard boiled eggs are another quick protein that you can prepare ahead of time.
Try cooking a big batch of quinoa or rice and roasting a large tray of vegetables, tofu, or meat at the start of the week to use for salads, stir-fries, scrambles, or grain bowls.
Invest in storage containers – glass, Tupperware, Ziploc bags. This will make organizing and packing easy!
Keep healthy snacks on hand in your fridge or pantry to grab and go – veggies with hummus, fruit, nuts, and beef jerky, for example.
Use spices! They are the key to adding flavor to make your meals enjoyable – pink Himalayan salt, pepper grinder, garlic, etc.
Repurpose your left-overs. If you roast a whole chicken with root vegetables for dinner, shred the leftover chicken and use it for tacos, soup, or as a salad topping for lunch the next day.
Pre-portion your meals. Weighing and measuring your meals into individual containers is an excellent meal prep strategy, especially if you’re trying to track your macros.
If this is new for you, then start small. Cook one or two meals ahead of time until you get into a rhythm. Before you know it, you’ll be completely organized for your week. Your work lunches will be healthful instead of grabbing something that meets your time but doesn’t meet your health goal!
