Meal Prep: Cook Once for the Week

If you’re done with excuses and are looking to up your game in the nutrition department, here’s a meal prep favourite of mine to help you get started. This recipe is easy to put together and leaves you with a flavourful meal for the entire week!

This is a go-to for me for busy weeks – I’ll use it for my lunches or even my dinner if I’m in a rush.

Chicken and Roasted Veggies What you need:

  • 2 to 3 boneless chicken breasts (cut into cubes, strips or small pieces)

  • 3 to 4 cups of veggies (your choice – I like to use a bag of frozen mixed variety to make it easier)

  • 1 tablespoon of seasoning (your choice – I like to use Italian seasoning or something spicy)

  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil

How to:

  • Pre-heat your oven to 450 degrees.

  • Place your chicken and veggies in a large baking dish.

  • Drizzle on the olive oil and sprinkle on the seasonings, mix until covered.

  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes (or until chicken is cooked through).

  • Divide the meal into separate containers for your week.

  • You can eat it alone, with a side salad or even cook a batch of rice to portion out with it.

Easy recipes like these make it a breeze to pack your own lunch and eat healthy all week. Once you get into meal prepping, it becomes second nature – saving you both time and money (and your health!). I tend to cook in batches on Sundays so that I have lunches all week and some suppers. This way I eat less take out and waste less food.
