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!
I decided to go fairly simple this week with some ham and cheese roll-ups, an easy but delicious greek quinoa salad, and some fruit. If you've never had a chilled quinoa salad, I think you may love it - I often prefer it this way to cooked quinoa! Bonus is how filling it is due to high protein and fiber content so it's a healthy side that won't leave you wishing you had more for lunch. I chose ham & cheese roll ups because they are not only tasty, but will refrigerate well to last me through the work week, and let's face it, they're just a little more fun to eat than a wrap or sandwich! I love that this lunch combo is packed with protein fruits and veges and is still super delicious! I'm currently writing up this blog post while I eat my "Monday" prepped lunch and I can honestly say this is a yummy satisfying meal and I will be more than happy to eat again tomorrow! That being said, let's get to it!
The ingredient quantities I list will be enough for 5 prepacked lunches portioned as pictured. Feel free to adjust if you want more or less!
H&C Pinwheels Directions:
Greek Quinoa Salad Directions:
Fruit: Peel your clementines, take your grapes of the stems- or prepare fruit of your choice however you need to and add to your meal prep containers!
Once you have all your meal prep containers filled and done simply put on the lids, refrigerate, and enjoy when meal time rolls around!
Again, if you have anything you'd like to see in a future meal prep post, please comment and let me know - I'd love to connect and get inspiration from y'all!
Love how perfectly these Macrostacks fit a proportioned meal inside and stack together!
