If you’re struggling to balance your busy lifestyle and wellness goals, break out your knife, chop up some veggies, and join the meal prep lifestyle. Having meals prepared and ready to eat will help you avoid eating out too much and put a whole new twist on the term “fast food.”
Breakfast Recipe One: Asparagus and Tomato Frittata
Here is a simple and healthy breakfast recipe that is light and perfect for brunch on the weekend and also an easy make-ahead meal for breakfasts on the go during the workweek. It has tender asparagus, fresh tomato, and sharp shredded cheddar.
Breakfast Recipe Two: Baked Oats with Apricot and Berries
This baked oatmeal with fruit requires minimal prep but provides maximum flavor. The oats are layered between fruit and turn into a cross of a fruit crumble and almost like a bread pudding. The oats absorb all the liquid and the juices of the fruit while it bakes and transforms it into a healthy baked breakfast treat.
Lunch Recipe One: Air Fryer Beef Egg Rolls
Egg Rolls are one of our favorite appetizers, but we also like making them for lunch. Instead of deep-frying them, you can make them into a healthier, but heartier version in the Air Fryer. They turn out almost crispy and delicious as the deep-fried version.
Lunch Recipe Two: Roasted Apricot Glazed Chicken with Broccoli
Chicken is a staple during the week, so we came up with this glaze to change it up and keep it from being boring from week to week. The sweetness of the apricot and honey combined with the saltiness of soy sauce brings out a bright and savory flavor. The glaze bubbles over the crispy-skinned chicken and forms a nice flavorful crunch.
Dinner Recipe One: Salmon Piccata with Asparagus
Piccata often gets a reputation of being too refined and difficult to make, but here is an easy baked salmon recipe that includes all the flavors you would find in a piccata sauce. This sauce uses lemon, garlic, butter, and capers to lighten up the dish and provides a refreshing bite.
Dinner Recipe Two: Ground Beef with Spring Veggies
This one skillet dish is made with ground beef, peas, carrots, and yellow squash. It can be ready in less than 15 minutes and is a yummy low-carb, gluten free option for your weekly meals.
