Another Simple, Easy Meal Prep

Easy meal prep clean eating meal prep meal plan

Here's a quick meal prep you can do this weekend when you have some extra time. I am telling you, this meal prep SAVED me a couple of weeks ago when we got home super late 3 night in a row! I just grabbed the prepped meal and dinner was on the table FAST!

In this meal prep, I made enough food for 3 dinners, 3 lunches using leftovers and several days worth of snacks for hubby and I:
  1. 4 burrito bowls (1 dinner + lunch leftovers)
  2. Sausage and peppers (1 dinner + lunch leftovers)
  3. Crockpot Greek Pitas, not pictured above (1 dinner + lunch leftovers)
  4. Hardboiled eggs for snacks
  5. Cut up celery to enjoy with PB for snack
All of these meals are VERY basic and take very little time to prepare.\

Burrito Bowls with Corn and Black Bean Salad

Corn and Black Bean Salad
1 package of frozen corn
1 can low sodium black beans, drained and rinsed
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
Juice of 2 limes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon chili powder (or to taste)
  1. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Chill for a few hours to allow the flavors to marry.

Burrito Bowls
1 lb. ground turkey
1 package low sodium taco seasoning
1 cups (or more) cooked brown rice -- i love the quick cooking kind
Toppings: Guacamole or avocado, fresh salsa, plain Greek yogurt, lettuce
  1. Brown the turkey with taco seasoning until cooked through.
  2. Divide the ingredients in 4 bowls or containers: rice, cooked meat, and a scoop of the black bean corn salad. Refrigerate up to 3 days.
Chicken Sausage and Peppers
1 lb or package chicken sausage, sliced (I love these from Trader Joes)
1 medium onion, sliced
2 bell peppers, sliced (any color)
Whole wheat hot dog buns, optional
  1. Brown sausage until cooked through; remove from pan
  2. In the same skillet, add peppers and onions. Cook about 10 minutes until veggies are soft. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Add in the sausage and cook a little more until heated through.
  4. Pile sausage and peppers on hot dog buns and top with lots of mustard OR serve without the bun--it's delicious this way also!

It seems like a ton of food and prep but honestly, this prep took me ONE HOUR, aside from the crockpot cooking time! I am telling you, it SAVED us a few weeks ago--i know I would have opted for take out on those busy nights if I wouldn't have already made this food. Hope this helps you realize that meal prep DOES NOT have to be HOURS in the kitchen! Give it an hour on Sunday and you will thank yourself during the week!
