Looking for healthy meal prep lunch ideas? These 3 are easy, delicious and perfect for the whole family, toddlers included!
It’s easy to forget about lunch when you make your weekly meal plan. Having a healthy, satisfying lunch can make a busy day so much better though!
Today chef and RD Allison Schaaf shares three healthy meal prep lunch ideas that her family loves. Whether you have toddlers at home or it’s just you, these tips will set you up for success during busy weeks.
Healthy Meal Prep Lunch Ideas:
1. Soup or Stew
Make a big stew or soup for the week. Soup is so good leftover and can easily supplement leftovers or be served alongside a salad.
2. Mix & Match Tex Mex Meal Prep
Make a big batch of protein such as pulled pork, chicken, etc. You can also make a big batch of beans, veggies (bell peppers, onions, zucchini) and rice or quinoa. Have items like corn tortillas, avocado and salsa. Mix and match from these options to make things like tacos, salads or burrito bowls throughout the week!
3. Frittata or Quiche
Make-ahead frittatas are great for breakfast or lunch. Prep a big salad for the week (we always have one on our Gluten Free and Paleo meal plans). Serve the frittata with salad and you’re good to go!
