We’re always on the hunt for new healthy recipes, especially ones that can be prepped in advance. Removing the obstacle of having to cook dinner every night makes staying healthy a whole lot easier. Below, we’re sharing some healthy meals to prep on Sunday and enjoy throughout the week.
This Caprese quinoa salad features summer flavors and a healthy portion of protein. With just six ingredients, it’s easy to whip up on a Sunday evening — no need to spend the whole day meal prepping in the kitchen. The best part is it gets tastier after a day or two in the fridge.
Next on our list of healthy meals to prep are these make-ahead chicken gyros from Damn Delicious (another Chicago-based blog we love). Both the chicken and the homemade tzatziki sauce can be made ahead of time to marinate. When you’re ready to cook lunch or dinner, it’ll be extra flavorful.
Burritos are a popular meal-prep option because they keep so well. You can stash these burritos in the freezer to enjoy a fresh-tasting breakfast every morning, no cooking required. The recipe calls for all of your favorite breakfast fillings, like scrambled eggs, bacon and cheese. Feel free to sub some ingredients to make them allergy or diet-friendly.
Another great meal-prep option are these teriyaki Buddha bowls from The Foodie Physician. This recipe is chock-full of “immunity-boosting” ingredients like kimchi, kale and avocado. The bowl also features protein-packed tempeh. It’s colorful, flavorful and full of texture. Yum!
We’re a big fan of bowls, so here’s another one we love. This fajita chicken bowl from Cafe Delites has chicken, cilantro-lime rice, black beans and a delicious homemade dressing. You can prep all the fillings on Sunday, then make your bowls for lunch or dinner throughout the week.
