soooo….. it’s been a while since I last posted, I can give you a load of excuses but life is always like this….

cat

but I did promise some recipes!

How to Meal Prep Chicken

1. Time saving seasoning.
Lean meats like chicken, and pork get boring once you’ve been eating them for god knows how long. Tantalize your taste buds by preparing two or three variations of chicken at once. Using foil dividers in your pan you can add in as many flavours as you like!. check out some recipies here: Photo and recipe: Fit Men Cook

How to Hard Boil Eggs for Meal Prep

2. Oven Eggs.
When I’m having a break from eating chicken, I like to swap it in for Eggs. Because I like things to be brief…and I like being lazy, to make a dozen in one go, bake your eggs in muffin tins for just 30 minutes and you’re done!. Photo and recipe: The Lean Green Blog

How to Store Vegetables for Meal Prep

3. spiralize all the veggies.
When I meal prep, I chop and cook, but I never box until the night before. This saves me so much time because I can literally throw veggies into anything! Have a go at spiraling (They’re a great alternative to pasta as well.

Zucchini noodles (“zoodles”) and butternut squash noodles will stay fresh in the fridge for 3-5 days, and chopped vegetables like carrots, onion and pepper will last a week when refrigerated properly in a sealed plastic bag or tupperware. Photo and tip: Inspiralized

How to Roast Vegetables for Meal Prep

4. Roast vegetables with same cooking time.
To prep a large batch of veggies, try pairing them based on roasting time. Fast-cooking vegetables that can bake in the same pan include asparagus, mushrooms and cherry tomatoes; slow-roasting vegetables include carrots, cauliflower, onions, potatoes and parsnips. Photo: Picky Palate

Meal Prep Ideas Oatmeal Jars

5. Customize Oatmeal.
Fiber-rich foods like oatmeal are ideal for keeping you satiated until lunchtime or as a post workout refuel, due to the added sugar and unnatural preservatives I stay far far far away from store bought versions. Have a look at “raspberries and dark chocolate,” at Clean Food Crush

Muffin Cup Souffles Egg Muffins

6. Breakfast frittatas.
These are a go to for my breakki every time when I am eating egg, and when I have a fat meal for breakfast. Try these recipes in advance. You can store in the fridge for up to five days.Photo and recipe: Full Fork Ahead

Grilled Pesto Salmon Skewers

7. Meat on a Stick!.

I love love love love love Kabobs Not only because I can make some kick ass flavoured meat sticks, but because I can portion out the sticks per meal, meaning that when I box up at night, I just grab 2-3 sticks.

These are also great for picnics and for keeping to your meal prep at BBQ’s! Photo and recipe: Life by DailyBurn
