Your diet is the cornerstone to a healthy lifestyle. However, figuring out what you are going to eat all week can be daunting. This is where meal prep can help. 

Cooking ahead for the week doesn't have to be a hassle. In fact, with these 7 meal-prep ingredients your meal prep will be easier than ever! 

 

Roasted Vegetables

This one will come at no surprise, but roasted vegetables are perfect for meal prep. Some powerhouse veggies to add to the roasting tray are broccoli, Brussels sprouts, zucchini, cauliflower, and eggplant. Just add a little olive oil, salt and pepper. 

 

Zucchini Noodles

Spiral cut zucchini makes meal prep for low carb dieters a breeze. Just add a little pesto to these bad boys and you are good to go.

 

Coconut Oil

Go ahead and buy the biggest vat you can find. We use coconut oil in EVERYTHING. (Coconut Oil Coffee anyone?) 

 

Meatballs (With or Without Meat)

If you are a omnivore, meatballs are a no-brainer for meal prep. However, our vegetarian friends can also enjoy meat(less)balls as a convenient meal prep staple as well. Quinoa, chopped onions, and eggs are all you need to make some tasty vegetarian meatballs.

 

Greek Yogurt

Greek yogurt is quick and easy to add to sauces, pasta and for a quick breakfast. Best of all, greek yogurt is a protein packed dairy staple. 

 

Pesto

Homemade pesto pairs perfectly with those zucchini noodles we talked about earlier. However, it is also great on sandwiches, grain bowls or noodles. 

 

Your Roots Veggies

Root vegetables such as squash and sweet potatoes are perfect for adding a little nutrition to any meal. Just roast and you are ready to enjoy.
