Healthy Meal Prep Ideas
Meal #1 – Poached Eggs with Spinach and Mushrooms
The first one of my healthy meal prep ideas is this amazing protein on the go meal.
Packed with eggs and mushrooms for the protein part, and loaded up with vitamins and iron from the amazingly easy and delicious spinach salad.
Check out the recipe…
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup mushrooms
- 1 cup spinach
Pour water into a large saucepan.
Add a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, and a pinch of salt.
Crack 1 egg into a bowl, and after the water starts boiling, tip the egg into the water.
Let it cook for 3 minutes.
Heat a frying pan with a few drops of olive oil.
Add the mushrooms, together with salt, pepper, and dill.
Feel free to add your favorite spices too.
Cook for 10 minutes, or until the mushrooms turn golden.
Wash the spinach carefully and cut it on thin strips.
Add olive oil and few lemon drops, and salt it by taste.
Meal #2 – Baby Shrimps with Zucchini-Carrot Noodles and Greek Yogurt
The second one of my healthy meal prep ideas is this amazing seafood protein on the go.
These delicious baby shrimps, spiced with garlic taste like a restaurant-quality meal, yet take just 15 minutes to cook.
I spiced them up with a low fat Greek yogurt on the side and zucchini-carrot noodles.
Check out the recipe…
- 2 cups baby shrimps
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 glove of garlic
- 1/2 zucchini
- 1/2 carrot
- 1 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
Melt 1 tablespoon olive oil in a pan, over medium heat.
Add the shrimp, salt and pepper to taste, dill, and one glove of garlic.
Stir frequently, and cook 15 minutes or until they turn golden.
Grate the zucchini and the carrot, and spice them up with olive oil, salt, and freshly squeezed lemon juice.
Add the cream cheese into the last empty container, and spice it with dill and oregano.
Meal #3 – Chicken Breast with Mustard Seeds, Avocado and Cherry Tomatoes
The next ready to eat meal is this tasty chicken breast, spiced with mustard seeds, side dished with avocado and cherry tomatoes.
Loaded up with proteins and healthy fats, this meal prep dish is something you have to try!
- 1 chicken breast
- 1 tablespoon mustard seeds
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes
Salt the chicken breast, spice it up with curry, and grease it with mustard seeds.
Wrap it in a baking paper, with a few drops of olive oil, and bake it for 30 minutes on 180 C.
Serve it in a meal container, together with the sliced avocado and the cherry tomatoes.
Meal #4 – Bacon Green Peas with Tomatoes and Boiled Egg
Have you ever tried mixing peas with bacon?
If not, this is the time to do that – they’re cooked in less than 15 minutes, and they’ll color your dish with fibers and proteins.
With the egg on the side, they’re a real English breakfast inspired protein on the go dish.
Okay, I know, maybe bacon isn’t the healthiest way to go, however, just two slices of bacon with less than 100 calories will do the trick and make this meal rich and delicious.
If you’d like to go vegetarian, just leave out the bacon and you’re all set!
- 2 cups green peas
- 2 slices of bacon
- 1 tomato
- 1 egg
Boil the green peas in water, for 15 minutes, with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, cut the bacon in small cubes and let it melt on a frying pan.
When it starts changing the color, add the drained green peas, and cook for another 10 minutes.
Boil the egg, cut it on thin slices, and serve it into the meal container together with the tomato.
