There are many dishes that are great for meal prep, as they can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator or freezer for later use. Here are some ideas:
Roasted vegetables and quino
Roast a variety of vegetables (such as broccoli, carrots, and sweet potatoes) in the oven, and cook some quinoa.
Mix the two together and add your choice of seasoning for a healthy and filling meal.
Saute chicken and your choice of vegetables (such as bell peppers, onions, and carrots) in a pan with soy sauce and garlic. Serve over rice or quinoa.
Brown ground turkey and add canned tomatoes, beans, and your choice of chili seasoning. Let it simmer for a few hours and portion it out for a week’s worth of meals.
Pesto pasta with roasted tomatoes
Cook whole grain pasta and toss it with store-bought pesto. Add roasted cherry tomatoes for a burst of flavor.
Combine cooked grains (such as rice or quinoa), roasted or raw vegetables, and a protein (such as chickpeas or tofu) in a bowl. Top with your favorite sauce or dressing.
