Meal Prep Hacks 1200x300

Meal prep sounds like a great way to save time and eat healthy during your busy week. But who wants to waste a whole Sunday slaving away in the kitchen? Happily, meal prep doesn’t have to take all day with a little planning and patience.


Keep it simple

You don’t need to go on a Pinterest-fueled rampage with your meal prep. Just stick to the basics!

Pick a protein or two and make enough for several meals. Simple chicken breasts or pre-sliced Rancher’s Legend beef round can be cooked in advance and tossed into stir-fries, pastas, soups, or salads for quick dinners during the week.


One-pot meals

Fewer dishes means quicker clean-up, so try some recipes that you can make in one dish.

Load up a sheet pan with chicken or pork and another with chopped veggies. When everything is done, you’ll have the building blocks for tons of tasty meals!

A slow cooker is another great meal-prep tool. Make a big batch of rice and veggies that you can jazz up with different proteins, spices, and sauces. Add some curry powder, cilantro, and chicken for an Indian-inspired meal. Or mix in a little Green Way Organic Salsa, cheese, and steak for a Mexican dinner!


Skip the prep

The quickest way to simplify meal prep? Let us do it for you! Cut produce and pre-cooked protein can save you time and energy.
