Healthy Meal Prep Recipes 2018. Recipes for breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner, and desserts that can be made in advance!
New year. New you!
The holidays are over, so bring ooooooon the healthy deliciousness!
Today, I’m here to help you get organized with Healthy Meal Prep Recipes for breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner, and desserts! ALL of these can be made in advance!
But before we start, here are my five:
Healthy Meal Prep Tips
- Keep. It. Simple! We’re not running a michelin star restaurant here. We’re just trying to feed our families healthy and delicious food, amiright?! Lucky for you, all my recipes I’ve listed are SUPER easy.
- Make a list. AND stick to it. I figure out what I’m making this week, e-mail myself the grocery list, and delete items off my list as I grab them.
- Think ahead. What recipe(s) take the longest to cook? While the first recipe is cooking in the crockpot, you could use that time to prep veggies, bake healthy muffins, etc. If timed correctly, there shouldn’t be any down time.
- Have a routine. For me? I need to be on a pretty strict schedule or I’ll let things slide. I know if I’m going to get ANY meal prepping done, I need to go to the grocery store first thing Sunday morning (bonus: nobody else is EVER there 😉 ), get home, prep for a few hours, and I’m done by noon! This lets me feel super productive, but also enjoy my last day of the weekend!
- Use a variety of cooking methods. Don’t grab 10 recipes that all need the oven or you’ll be prepping for 10 hours instead of a few. Throw one dinner in your crockpot, one in your instant pot, make a sheet pan dinner, a one pot stovetop meal, and save one for the air fryer!
