Meal Prep your way in to 2017 with 30 different ways to meal prep with recipes from Fit Foodie Finds. Get organized at the beginning of a busy week by meal prepping healthy and delicious breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks, and desserts!
I’ve only got 4 days of 2017 under my belt and I can already feel that it is truly going to be one heck of a year. With the launch of the Healthy Glow Collective this last weekend, spending so much quality time with the people I love, and working with Team Fit Foodie to create a 2017 content calendar that I am giddy about…I couldn’t be more grateful or more excited for the next couple months. #forREALZ 2017 is going to be about more balance, more travel, more days of shutting off my laptop at 5:00pm, more hugs, being OK with a fluctuating workout schedule, more time with Mark, more days at the river, and by golly, more dancing. Also, 2017 is going to have just as much meal-prepping as 2016…and beyond!
It’s no secret that I am a meal prepper. Almost every meal on FFF can be modified to be a meal-prep breakfast, lunch or dinner. Honestly, it makes my life a hell of a lot easier. Some of FFF’s most popular themed weeks were created for people who need new + fun recipe ideas perfect for meal prep.

I used to restrict my diet and cut out foods that were higher in fat and calories. Finally, I got a grip and reminded myself that whole grains aren’t the devil and that it’s ok to eat ice cream. Now, instead of obsessing over restaurant visits or binging for dinner because I am too stressed to take a breather and make something healthy, I meal prep. That way I have no worries and I get to eat delicious meals without stressing. People ask me all the time why and how I meal prep. There are countless reasons, but to be more specific, I meal prep because..
- I love having accessible, healthy, and delicious meals ready to eat after a long day of work.
- I am a creature of habit, but because my job can be so sporadic, meal prep helps give structure to my week.
- I know that Sundays or Mondays are my meal prep day. Setting time aside to meal prep, really slows me down and allows me to be intentional about my time and what I put into my body.
- I love to snack. Meal-prepping healthy snacks really encourage me to snack healthy throughout the day.
I totally understand that it can seem daunting to look at a 7-day week and decide what you’re going to eat, before you’ve even started your week. Meal prep makes life less stressful in the long run. Having the right tools and feeling prepared to prep for the week is SO helpful. I also make meal prep a little easier with my Pyrex 18 piece Storage Set and Slow Cooker.
