One of my secrets to a week filled with healthy meals is meal prepping! However, not every recipe is cut out for big batch cooking and leftovers - that's okay too! I like to have the flexibility of having meals on hand and not feeling like I HAVE to cook every single day. Most weeks, I will cook 2-3 times, ensuring there are plenty of leftovers for next day meals. This really helps me take out the daily stress of "what's for dinner?!".
Today, I wanted to share 10 meal prep recipes you HAVE to try that are Registered Dietitian approved! Before you leave, be sure to check out fabulous meal planning blog posts by my fellow bloggers at the end of this post!
I never knew what to do with cabbage besides chop it up finely and add it to "stuff" until I made these cabbage rolls and it was a game changer! The combination of ground beef, brown rice, and cabbage make it a hearty meal that the whole family will enjoy.
This Chicken Curry takes it to another level with coconut milk! Coconut milk adds a creamy texture, coating the chicken and veggies beautifully. Change up the veggies you add for a change of flavours and nutrients!
Lasagna is one of my FAVOURITE all time meals, but I don't make it often because it takes quite a bit of time in the kitchen. This slow cooker lasagna is genius when it comes to saving time, especially since you don't have to boil the lasagna beforehand!
Chili was one of the first meals I learned to cook. You best believe it is an easy, one pot wonder! I love this version with ground turkey and chipotle, adding great flavours. Once again, this is a very versatile dish that can be changed up with different add-ins.
I feel like everyone has their own version of chickpea salad. This version is smashed, making it a great addition to your sandwiches or wraps since the chickpeas won't roll around. You can top it on a rice cake, tortilla, flat bread...anything you want really!
