Top 5 Meal Prep Food Items!

If you asked two different people what their favorite meal prep food items are, they would give you two different lists. Today, we’ve decided to share our top 5 favorite meal prep food items.

  1. Snacking Veggies – Raw vegetables make an excellent snack. They are simple to prep ahead of time, and you can enjoy them at any time throughout the day. We are particularly fond of pairing hummus with cucumbers, snap peas, peppers, broccoli, and carrots.
  2. Whole Grains – It is so simple to prepare a big batch of your favorite grain to have on hand throughout the week. Prep it on Sunday and add it to your meals during the week. A few of our favorite whole grains include wheat berries, quinoa, and brown rice.
  3. Lean Protein – If you love to eat meat, why not cook some of your meat ahead of time for less weeknight meal prep? We personally recommend veggie burgers, meatloaf, salmon, and chicken. You can grill or bake them. Don’t forget to switch it up for extra variety.
  4. Legumes & Beans – It’s a great idea to add some plant based protein to your diet. Try buying a bag of your favorite dried beans, cooking the whole bag at one time, and then freezing the extra. Legumes and beans can easily be added to a casserole or salads to boost the protein content.
  5. Soup – Soup is an excellent way to pack a ton of vitamins and nutrients into one simple meal. Choose a low sodium broth. Add a lot of veggies. Add some protein, and if you feel like it, add some whole grains. Voila! You have a delicious and nutritious meal.

How to Meal Prep Salads?

How to Meal Prep Salads?

Eating a big, healthy salad once a day is an excellent way to maintain healthy habits. Remember that these are just general guidelines that have a lot of room for creativity. Even though you’re prepping your salads for the week all at once, you can still add variety to your diet by using different dressings and toppings.

  1. Choose food storage containers that are flat and rectangular in shape. They will stack together more easily in your fridge. They also create more space to spread your greens and veggies out, which reduces the likelihood that they’ll become soggy. You can find a great selection of these containers right here at Meal Preppies.
  2. Start with the greens. To conserve time, buy a bag of prewashed salad greens. If you wash your own greens, just make sure they are completely dry before you begin packing your salads. Each container should be filled 3/4ths the way full with greens.
  3. Add fruit, beans, and veggies. The options you have to choose from are endless. Just a few of our personal favorites include cucumbers, carrots, whole cherry tomatoes, broccoli, peppers, kidney beans, chickpeas, peas, corn, and fruit, like blueberries and grapes. Make sure to dry off each ingredient to ensure it stays crisper for longer.
  4. Add the protein. For your protein, including meat and whole grains, add these on top of your first three meal prep salads (Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday’s). On Wednesday night, add your choice protein to Thursday and Friday’s salads. The same should be done with wet fruit (like strawberries), avocado, and seeds and nuts.
  5. Keep your dressings separate until you are ready to eat your salad. Buy a few dip sized containers, or if you have access to a refrigerator at work, you can store a bottle of dressing there.

  4. Cook all of your foods together. Roasting chicken breasts, sweet potatoes, and vegetables together will save you a considerable amount of time and conserve energy. Imagine having all of your side dishes for the week prepared in under 30 minutes.

Finally, one of the most important easy meal prep tips you can follow is to invest in some high quality food storage containers.
