Easy Food Prep Ideas

These 26 Easy Food Prep Ideas prove that meal prepping for the week is anything but boring! With 1 hour (or sometimes even less!) you can have enough meals for breakfast and lunch to carry you straight through to the end of the week. 

As always, our goal here is to help set you up for success during the week, not to fail. While some people only meal prep one or two dishes, we know others prefer a wider variety to prevent food boredom. That’s why many of the recipes in these delicious 26 easy food prep ideas collection are no-cook (or require only a few minutes)! 

While you have one or two recipes cooking, think sheet pan and crockpot, you can be working on 1 or 2 of your other no-bake recipes. So, when the timer goes off on the oven you will have almost an entire weeks’ worth of meals ready to go! Doesn’t that sound like a really easy food prep plan? We thought so! 

We broke everything down by meal: breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, and even a little dessert! From sweet and savory Bacon Strawberry Breakfast Salads to Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers, Chickpea Curry, and no-bake Cake Batter Protein bars, we have everything you would need to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters! 

So, grab your meal prep containers, your favorite playlist and let’s get cooking!

  1. I would really love to start the meal prep process but all of the Meal Prep Cookbooks are always so expensive. I looked at your recipes and they all look soooo delicious.
    I live on a very limited income. I need help though in preparing my meals.
