We will share some easy meal prep ideas that will spice up your work lunch and keep you feeling energised throughout the day.

Meal Prep Idea 1 : Chilli con carne 

Have you ever struggled with meal prepping? I mean, sometimes it can feel like a daunting task to plan your meals for the week and then cook them all in one go. We have some fantastic chilli con carne recipes

But what if I told you that there was a meal that could solve all your meal prep problems? Yes, you guessed it right, I’m talking about the beloved dish – chilli con carne. Our chilli con carne seasoning is the perfect option for this occasion with the total calories at 156 Calories for the whole recipe pack and spread over 6 portions which is how much you can get out of our packs, this would add 26 calorie’s to your meal and for the amazing flavour this is amazing value for money.

Chilli con carne is a Mexican dish that’s made with beef, kidney beans, tomatoes, onions, garlic, and of course, chilli peppers. It’s a hearty and nutritious meal that’s packed with protein, fiber, and essential vitamins and minerals. But why is it the perfect meal prep? Let’s dive into it! 

Firstly, chilli con carne is incredibly easy to make. You can whip up a big batch in just a few minutes, and it’s a one-pot wonder, meaning there’s minimal washing up required. Plus, you can customise the recipe to suit your tastes – you can swap out the beef for turkey or chicken if you’re not a fan of red meat and if you aren’t a meat lover whatsoever then you can add lentils with your kidney beans for that protein punch.

Meal prep idea 2 : Burrito bowl

Burrito bowls are incredibly easy to make. All you need is a few ingredients like rice, beans, veggies, and your choice of protein like chicken, beef or tofu. 

You can prepare all the ingredients in advance, and then assemble the bowls when you’re ready to eat. What makes burrito bowls truly perfect for meal prep is their versatility. You can customise them to your liking, and you can change up the ingredients every time you make them. That way, you won’t get bored of eating the same thing every day.  

Another great thing about burrito bowls is that they’re a healthy meal option. They’re packed with fiber, protein, and nutrients, and they’re a great way to get your daily dose of veggies. Using our Taco recipe seasoning you can add so much flavour to this dish and coming in at 102 calories in a pack, spread over 4 portions which is what we recommend with this recipe seasoning would come to 25 calories per portion! For the amount of flavour you can get from this seasoning that is scarily good.

Meal prep idea 3 : Fajitas

Fajitas are a fantastic meal prep idea that can be easily customized to fit any dietary preferences, making them a popular choice among health enthusiasts. The dish typically consists of grilled meat (such as chicken or beef) and vegetables (such as peppers and onions), served with a side of tortillas and toppings like salsa, cheese, and sour cream.

Fajitas are not only delicious but also high in essential nutrients like protein, vitamins, and fiber. They are also easy to prepare in advance, making them a perfect option for busy individuals who want to have a healthy meal ready to go in their fridge at all times.

To maximize the benefits of fajitas as a meal prep idea, one can use various types of protein, including tofu, shrimp, or even plant-based options such as tempeh or jackfruit to cater for vegan/vegetarian options. The vegetables can also be swapped for any preferred vegetable options, and the amount of spices and flavouring can be altered according to personal preference.

Overall, Fajitas are an easy, quick, and satisfying meal prep idea that is healthy, customisable, and perfect for anyone looking to add variety and flavour to their weekly meal plans. Incorporating fajitas into your regular meal prep can provide you with a delicious, nutrient-rich meal without the hassle of cooking every day, making them a worthwhile addition to any healthy eating plan.
