This is one of my favorite go to ideas for meal prep - it is easy to prepare, all tastes great together, and a good balance between meat, veggies, and healthy carbs. Also maybe it's because I love teriyaki chicken ... but who doesn't?! I prepped this exactly as below and brought it to work for 5 days of lunches and it was good until day 5 (made on Sunday - last ate on Friday)! If you make this exactly as I did I would recommend starting with the quinoa so you can allow it to cool (per instructions) while you work on the chicken for best use of your time! I hope y'all enjoy this easy meal prep as much as I do!
Anyone else out there feel like life is just too darn busy right now?! Seriously I don't know where my days and weeks are going! It's always easier said than done to take a couple hours on Sunday to meal prep for the week but I'm so glad when I do because my weeks are a little less stressful when I can just grab my lunch and go. Especially if I don't even have to heat it! I think a lot of you probably feel the same way because the last no heat meal prep post I put together has been one of your favorites and most pinned! (You can find that one here: No Heat Ham & Cheese Roll Ups with Greek Quinoa Salad)! This time I switched it up with some deli sliced chicken and provolone with pesto orzo salad as the side.... I have to say I think this combo may be my new favorite! I hope y'all enjoy!
Y'all, I am so excited about my new meal prep containers from MacroStacks. I went off the breakfast & lunch meal plan at my office in hopes of eating healthier and less throughout the day... plus I'll get to prepare more food for SDE to share with all of you! I think the key to me actually planning out meals for work and bringing them with me is ease to use, put in the fridge without taking up too much space, and easy to clean - these containers are perfect! I reached out to some friends for input on what they'd like to see in my first meal prep post and the majority gave me feedback that it would be great to get some inspiration on a yummy lunch for people on the go who have no access to a microwave or to heat their food while on the go. I loved this idea because for any of you packing for a busy day on the go or for your kids' lunch you can't always meal prep chicken & veggies and such combos. Now that I will be packing my own lunches for work I'll be doing meal prep posts more often and would love for you to comment what you'd like to see in a meal prep post (hot or cold) to inspire me for future weeks!
