34 Meal Prep Ideas For A Week

Advertisement

Looking to prep meals for the week, easy ideas you can make and even freeze ahead? When it comes to cooking every night, I love having home cooked meals and saving money while not eating out, but the logistics of said goal often have me “calling Uncle” by Wednesday and ordering takeout. I went looking to some of my favorite food bloggers for the best meal prep recipes and ideas for planning meals a week at a time. Now, every Saturday, I go to look at my recipe lists, choosing my favorite for the week. I make my grocery shopping list as I go, so by Sunday I can go shopping in the morning and cook all evening for the week. Prep, rather. Sunday evenings have become one of my favorite times of the week, actually. My boyfriend and I love getting everything ready together so we have great meals when we come home from work every night. If you are looking for some cool and easy meal prep ideas, try these 34 foods. From bowls to bentos to casseroles, you are sure to love these one dish wonders
