5 Delicious and Healthy Meal Prep Ideas


Meal prep can be a great way to save time, eat healthier, and save money on eating out. However, it can be challenging to come up with meal prep ideas that are both delicious and healthy. Here are 5 meal prep ideas that are easy to make and will help you stay on track with your health goals:

  1. Grilled chicken and vegetable skewers: Cut up chicken breasts and your favorite vegetables (such as bell peppers, onions, and cherry tomatoes) into chunks and thread them onto skewers. Grill the skewers until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender. Serve the skewers with a side of quinoa or brown rice.

  2. Baked salmon and sweet potato fries: Coat salmon fillets in a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, and your favorite herbs (such as rosemary or thyme). Bake the salmon at 350°F for 20-25 minutes, or until it is cooked to your desired level of doneness. While the salmon is baking, cut sweet potatoes into fries and toss them with olive oil and your favorite spices (such as paprika or cumin). Bake the sweet potato fries at 425°F for 20-25 minutes, or until they are crispy and tender.

  3. Black bean and corn salad: Combine canned black beans, corn, diced tomatoes, diced red onion, chopped cilantro, and a squeeze of lime juice in a large bowl. Add some diced avocado and a sprinkle of cheese if desired. Serve the salad with some baked tortilla chips on the side.

  4. Turkey and hummus wrap: Spread hummus onto a whole grain tortilla and top with slices of turkey, lettuce, tomato, and avocado. Roll the tortilla up and slice it into bite-sized pieces.

  5. Slow cooker lentil soup: Combine lentils, diced tomatoes, diced carrots, diced celery, diced onion, minced garlic, and chicken broth in a slow cooker. Add your favorite herbs and spices (such as bay leaves, thyme, and rosemary). Cook the soup on low for 8-10 hours, or until the lentils are tender. Serve the soup with some whole grain bread on the side.

By preparing these meals in advance, you can have healthy and delicious lunches and dinners ready to go throughout the week.
