5 Day Lunch Meal Prep || Easy Healthy Recipes

Anyone who knows me knows that I love meal prep. Though I work from home, I am not one to spontaneously make a huge lunch that’s going to take me hours. I am also not one to just whip up a simple pb+j sandwich for lunch. I want something healthy, flavourful, delicious, and easy. And that, my friends, is why I love meal prepping.

On Sundays, I like to get ahead of my week by creating a simple “base meal” to be my launching pad for the rest of the week. I typically cook up some quinoa, roast a few veggies, and then separate them evenly into 5 Tupperware containers. Then the next day, I can turn that “base meal” into whatever I want. I can easily add a simple sauce, throw in some spinach or arugula, or add in some avocado.

Last week, I decided to document my meals to show you how I easily take a simple meal and turn it into 5 super yummy and super nutritious meals without much work. So, if you’re looking for some easy meal ideas to mix up your usual Sunday meal prep, then scroll on through.
