I have been on my current fitness and nutrition journey since April 2017. Through the years I have found that meal prepping is a lifesaver. I was on a strict diet that involved hand portioning and getting those needed proteins and veggies with each meal.
The grown-up me realize that measuring out my foods and creating grab and go meals was always the way to go. Back when I had a day job plus my blog, it was the only way I was able to stay on track. Thankfully though many trial and error’s I have found the easiest no-cook meal prep options out there.
Today I am sharing 3 of my no-cook meal prep ideas. The beauty of all of these ideas is that you can prep them on Sunday and have enough to last you through Friday. As many of you will learn down the road with your bodies it’s important to make sure you are feeding yourself the minimum in daily proteins.
I like to make my meal prep easy by picking up some Great Day Farms Ready-To-Eat Hard-Boiled Eggs at Walmart in the Deli Section. It’s so easy to just grab and go with these, it makes this mom of 4’s life so much easier.
No-Cook Meal Prep Ideas
BLT – The Healthy Version
For this Healthy Version of BLT, you have the spinach sitting on top of a 100 calorie multigrain English muffin. Sliced tomatoes and a hard-boiled egg, as much as you can fit on that. This is a great option for a quick light lunch as well as a delicious way to start your day.
It is very important to get your daily calcium as well as healthy fruit servings. In this meal prep, you can interchange 2 selected fruits. As well as choose the yogurt that works best for your diet, I tend to get the non-dairy yogurts which still count towards my daily calcium intake. Add in some string cheese and of course your protein with Hard-Boiled Eggs.
There are some days I really just want to skip the heavy carbs and go straight for those vitamins and minerals. This is a great option for those who wish to do that as a snack or meal. Since this meal prep contains 3 Hard boiled eggs protein is checked off your list, and you can then focus on the veggies. To make it exciting switch up what veggies you put in each container.
For example on Monday, Wednesday and Friday add red and green pepper slices. On the other days use broccoli and carrots. The possibilities are endless with these bowls I tell you.
