MIX AND MATCH MEAL PREP
WORDS | GABRIELA RODILES
Here are four tips for a productive Sunday meal prep that will set you up for success throughout your week of lunches. You’ll be happy catching a few more z’s, knowing that a healthy lunch is ready and prepped for you!
Make a big batch of quinoa that can serve as a base in bowls with protein and veggies. Instead of using water, use chicken broth or white wine to add rich flavor.Line a big baking pan with aluminum foil to make clean-up from roasting veggies super easy. Toss carrots, Brussels sprouts, sweet potato, broccoli or your other favorite veggies in olive oil. Season with generous amounts of salt, pepper and Herbs de Provence (a dried herb blend). Roast at 425 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. No need for a formal recipe!
In a pinch for time? Buy a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and shred all the meat at once. Use some for salads, some for quinoa bowls or even toss into a simple soup!
At the grocery store pick up a bag of lettuce to make a mix and match salad with your chicken and vegetables, plus fruits and veggies for breakfast and snacks. When you get home from the store wash and cut everything up so it’s ready to eat during the week.
