Meal prep isn’t something any of us look forward to, but it’s super helpful (and sometimes necessary) to make sure you eat healthily all week. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut making the same meals over and over, meaning you’ll get bored before you’ve even taken your second serving out of the fridge! We’ve compiled some of the tastiest meal preps the internet has to offer to keep your mealtimes as interesting as possible.
Cauliflower Tikka Masala
Perfect for all of our vegan readers, this tikka masala is made with cauliflower, beans and coconut milk. Try this one out for a warming dish filled with spices for when there’s a bit of a cold snap outside. Warm this baby up, tuck yourself into a blanket and chow down whilst binge-watching Netflix.
Jerk Chicken Meal Prep Bowls
Originating in Jamaica and now also popular across the Caribbean, jerk chicken is the perfect way to add some flavour to mealtimes. This one comes with a classic side of beans, as well as some delicious pineapple salsa. You can spend your lunch break dreaming of Caribbean beaches instead of your dreary office!
Meal Prep Chicken Burrito Bowls
If you ever ate Lunchables or other ‘build-a-lunch’ foods as a child, this is basically the adult version! Prep all the ingredients and then make your burritos however you feel like them when mealtime comes around. This recipe includes beans, peppers, salsa, lettuce and rice. You can switch it up with whichever fillings you’d like, making the possibilities endless – this is a meal prep recipe you’ll never get bored of!
Meal Prep Tuna Salad
This is a perfect meal prep for when you don’t feel like putting too much effort in – it takes barely any time! Tuna salad is also a crowd favourite, so if you’re meal prepping for multiple people, this is likely to satisfy everyone. You can also mix this one up each time you make it – add pickles, swap out the veggies, or adjust how much mayo you add into the tuna!
Sun-dried Tomato & Chickpea One-Pot Pasta
You can make this one up to 3 days earlier than you consume it, meaning its perfect to have sitting in the fridge to grab for lunch. It’s super easy to make (thank god for one pot recipes!), so you can practically make it without a second thought. Perfect for if you have a hectic schedule – throw all the ingredients in the pot, cook and serve!
