My Favorite Prep-free Meal Prep Tips

Sunday is a good day to start thinking about your week ahead.

You may or may not know this about me, but I DON’T MEAL PREP, not usually. I do not chop and plan and pre-portion at my house. I might batch cook or cook once, eat twice but that is about as far as my meal prep game goes.

So here are my best tips for staying on track with your wellness goals while also keeping it simple so you don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen (unless you want to). Because a week without meal prep doesn’t mean a week of fast food.

Pre-cooked proteins (hard boiled eggs, rotisserie chicken, smoked salmon, breakfast sausage, deli meat) are a lifesaver for quick lunches and dinners. You should be consuming protein at every meal, so make sure you have plenty on hand that won’t require you to prep and cook every single thing.

Frozen proteins are also amazing in a pinch. I always have some frozen turkey burgers and veggie burgers on hand for quick easy meals.

Quick Carbs will change the game for you - make sure to have frozen or microwaveable quinoa / rice on hand, frozen sweet potato fries, tortillas, oats and LOTS of fresh fruit around the house so you can easily grab something that will help you hit that carb goal.

Pre-prepped veggies will make dinner a cinch - like veggie noodles, pre-chopped veggies, frozen steamable veggies, salad bags and stirfry blends. These are REGULARS in our house. I seriously take all the help I can get from the store, because time is money.

Keep clean fats on hand - avocados, nut butters, lots of healthy oils that you can add to help balance those meals.

My clients receive weekly meal guides that include shopping lists to help them navigate the meal planning and prepping process. Interested? Check out my program here.
