Between all of our responsibilities at work, home, family, and gym its no wonder that people don’t have time to cook anymore. It’s even harder if you are trying to loose weight and stay fit to make time to actually cook your meals. Since meal choices are essential to weight-loss making time for healthy meals is a must. Two advantages of meal prep is that it takes the guess work out of cooking when its time to eat, you can cook meals with similar ingredients to reduce food costs, and you only have one day of kitchen clean up (the ladder being my favorite benefit). Here I have gathered for you 5 of my favorite meal prep recipes that are vegetarian and delicious. Click on each link to access the full recipe.
This recipe produces 5 meals in 20 minutes! Quinoa and Black beans are packed with protein (14g total in this recipe). Top with a few little herbs and extras and you are ready to stay healthy on the go.
