Crunched for time? This meal prep is the perfect way to set yourself up for the week and save time from separating out all the food. I kept my foods simple so it took me well under 2 hours to meal prep. Check out my grocery cart full of goodies for the week – because you can’t eat what you don’t have in the house.
Seriously, I love Trader Joe’s healthy selection and great prices. Melissa’s Produce also sent me some yummy lentils and baby bananas that I included in my meal prep. They make it super easy to order produce right to your door.
Here’s some of my items for this week! I love how easy it is to combine what I want as I go. For anyone doing the 21 Day Fix program, it’s also super easy to use your color containers to measure out the food as you go.

Q: Where do you get the black containers?
A: Click here to buy the same containers from amazon.
Q: Do you get bored of eating the same thing every day?
A: No at all! I switch it up on a weekly basis and choose my healthy favorites that I don’t mind eating often. I also add different seasonings to keep things interesting.
Q: Do you pre-cook all your food at the beginning of the week or do you just cut it up and package it? Does the food stay fresh all week?
A: I personally like to pre-cook all my food! I keep it properly refrigerated and find that it stays fresh up to 5 days. If you prefer, you can totally freeze the last 2 days or cook 2-3 days at a time.
Q: Can you put any of these meals in the freezer?
A: I personally don’t but I know people who do but just remember to thaw it in time.
