Incorporating weekly meal prep doesn't have to be a difficult task. Start off by making a list of your favourite healthy dishes and then plan your week. Here is a meal planning chart I have created which you can print and use. It also helps to plan your recipes in My Fitness Pal when you prep if you are tracking macros.
To put meal prepping into perspective, here is an example of my typical day:
Breakfast: Goat's cheese zucchini frittata with cherry tomatoes
Morning snack: Protein porridge with almond butter and raspberries
Lunch: Vietnamese beef vermicelli salad
Afternoon snack: Rice pudding
Dinner: Grilled barramundi with stir fried veggies and roasted sweet potato
Snack: Moser Roth dark chocolate or XO crunch with warm almond milk
Another thing I like to do that makes meal prepping super easy especially when I’m running out of creative ideas is making a big batch of roasted sweet potatoes, roasted greens like broccoli, asparagus and green beans, a delicious big salad to last me all week, and grill some lean proteins like chicken, or turkey. I’ll sometimes add coconut rice or basmati rice to this combination as well just to change things up. Then simply just divide everything up into separate tupperware and you’re ready to go for the week!
Throw in some healthy snacks like fruit, nuts, corn thins, popcorn, roasted chickpeas or protein bars and you really can’t go wrong! I keep a stash of these snacks in my desk at work so I always have healthy options no matter what.
