What Can I Meal Prep?

  • cooked grains & pasta
  • cooked beans
  • cooked meat
  • roasted vegetables
  • hearty fresh vegetables (think celery, carrots, peas, bell peppers, kale, cabbage, radishes, etc.)
  • whole fruit (apples, oranges, stone fruit)
  • nuts & seeds
  • cheese
  • sauces and dips (like salad dressings, hummus, salsa, sour cream, etc.)

An easy way to think about meal prepping is to make a formula out of it. When deciding which foods to meal prep I try to pick out one of the following formulas:

  • Basic: Protein + Grain + Vegetable
  • Low Carb: Protein + Vegetable + Vegetable
  • Vegetarian: Legume + Grain + Vegetable

Start SMALLStart by packing up your leftovers from dinner one night and taking them for lunch the next day. Once you’re comfortable with that and you get to know what types of food you like as leftovers, you can pick one recipe to prep for the week ahead.

If having control over what you eat, or maximizing your time or budget is more valuable to you than eating something different every single day, meal prepping is your ticket.

Think of it like packing your lunches for the week all at once instead of packing your lunch each morning. You can use this same technique for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. 

Plain glass containers in different shapes/sizes (eg. 3-cup rectangle and 4-cup bowl) work for just about everything.
