We all have the intent of meal prepping on Sunday to get a jump start on a busy week. But sometimes even that isn’t possible. For times like that, freezer meals are a great solution to have quick and healthy meals on hand without having to order takeout. Whenever you have a free day, you …
With meal prep recipes becoming more and more popular, it’s hard to decide what meals to make when they all look so tasty and easy to make. One other factor that you should consider when planning your meal preps is the health factor. Yes, that salad looks amazing, but 500 calories of ranch is never a good idea. We rounded up 28 healthy meal prep recipes that you can make on Sunday for a healthy and easy week.
If you’re on the journey of living a low carb lifestyle, cauliflower will be your new best friend. Who knew cauliflower pizza, cauliflower tortilla, and even cauliflower gnocchi could taste remotely as great as it’s carb-loaded sibling. Sometimes the cauliflower recipes even taste better. And it doesn’t end there, with cauliflower rice, cauliflower waffles, and even a cauliflower burger bun, the options are endless.
So you can actually order cauliflower crust and cauliflower gnocchi if you’re limited on fresh crust making time; both of which are currently in my cart right now. If you’re going to make cauliflower rice often, this gadget is a great tool to speed up the process.
Sunday funday means Netflix and chill time with some weekly preparation added to the mix. This year, I’ve gotten into the habit of meal prepping our lunches for the week and it seriously makes life easier. My favorite protein for meal prepping is always chicken.

Last week I decided not to meal prep and oh was it a bad week. We ate out at least 6 times and I just didn’t feel great. Now, I’m getting a jump start on this week’s meal prep options with 17 Vegetarian meal prep recipes. Sometime when you need to cleanse and detox, an all veggie diet is just what you need. If you’re meal prepping for the first time, I highly recommend getting these single compartment containers or these 3-compartment containers to portion the food. It makes meal time much easier and keeps the food fresh!
Meal prepping is the ultimate time and energy saver during a busy week. It just takes 3 hours on a weekend to prepare everything for the week. If you think about it, cooking dinner every night adds up to 7-8 hours, so meal prepping saves at least 3-4 hours! Also, there is no better feeling than having dinner ready when you get home from a tiring work day. The Instant Pot can make meal prepping even easier. It cuts cook time down and creates meals that are full of flavor. At first, I was slightly terrified of my Instant Pot. Pressure cookers just sound scary, but after hearing rave reviews I gave it a try and now love using it weekly. I have a huge list of Instant Pot recipes that I want to try for our meal prep, here are a few of them.
Quick and healthy: two qualities to look for when planning meals. That’s why quinoa is a go-to and has been for years. I’m sure you’ve heard of the many health benefits that quinoa has. It’s high in antioxidants, protein, and fiber. Quinoa’s best characteristic, it only takes 15 minutes to cook. Like I said, quick and healthy.
Common uses of quinoa include salads, buddha bowls, and stuffed preparations. I even found interesting sweet preparations that I’m excited to test out!
