Healthy Meal Prep Ideas And Food You Could Prep With Mason Jar!

Cooking is fun, but cooking after work every day might sound like a less-than-enjoyable (if not dreadful) thing to do. While most of us struggle to think about what to eat before every meal, some people out there are prepping their meals ahead of time so as to avoid any last-minute hassle, and most importantly, to eat more healthily. Sounds impossible to you? What if I say that I used to think the same before I tried out the following healthy meal prep ideas? Intrigued now? Read on!

The following recipes will have you covered for 3 days of meal prepping ideas that you can try out on a weekend for the week ahead (well, half a week I should say). This is a pretty good start for people (like me) who dread cooking on weekday nights. Let’s waste no more time and get started!

Breakfast

1. Turkey & Veggie Omelette Rolls

1

    Packed with solid protein and the different nutrients from bell peppers and spinach, this omelette roll is super easy to make. Just make a few and heat them up in the morning.

    2. Fruit-on-the-Bottom Yogurt Cups

    2

      Why choose store-bought yogurt when you can make it yourself? With different mix-in ideas for the topping combinations, this yogurt cup is a great way for you to start a summer morning without all the hassle in the kitchen.

      3. Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes

      3

        Want to satisfy your carb cravings but still want to stay healthy? Why not give these hearty oatmeal pancakes a try? The usual all-purpose flour is substituted with whole wheat flour and rolled oats, giving you enough dietary fiber for the day. This recipe allows you to make roughly 8 pancakes which you can store in the fridge.

        Lunch

        1. Tomato Basil Broccoli Noodle and White Bean Salad

        4

          Yes, you read that right. Broccoli noodles are full of Vitamin C and K! They are fun to make and easy to prep. Simply spiralize the broccoli and prepare the salad dressing. Combine them and your refreshingly delicious lunch is ready!

          2. Skinny “Starbucks” Protein Bistro Box

          5

            If you are a big fan of the Starbucks bistro box, then this is the perfect meal prep idea for you. Pack your favorite fruits in a box ahead of time to have an energized morning!

            3. Grilled Chicken Veggie Bowls

            6

              A plus for this recipe is that you can make a big batch easily! Simply grill your chicken fillets and cook the different veggies according to their cooking time.

              Dinner

              1. 10-ingredient Slow Cooker Vegetable and Quinoa Stew

              9

                Soup as a healthy meal prep idea — sounds exciting, right? This time, we will need a helping hand from your slow cooker, which can turn your favorite veggies into a hearty, nourishing soup when you don’t have the time to cook.

                2. Fresh Vegetable Crunchy Rolls With Sriracha & Soy Sauce Tofu And Peanut Sauce

                8

                  Nothing beats the summer heat than a refreshing crunchy vegetable roll! As the look of it gives away, it is super easy to make and it is very healthy — just take a look at all the colorful veggies!

                  3. Pork and Vegetable Stir Fry

                  xemknxvrxvfvri1yi8rs

                    Stir fry as a meal prep recipe? Why not! Again, the combination of the pork and the veggies gives you a balanced diet. And the good thing about this recipe is that you can easily make a big batch to feed everyone in the family!
