Meal Prepping for Everyone 3 Ways to Prepare Cooking is a hassle for me, even though I love doing it. I love meal prepping, because I can go about my day, simply pull something out of the fridge that is tailored to my nutritional needs, and have it ready in a snap. The most popular ways to meal-prep include: Make-ahead meals: Full meals cooked in advance which can be refrigerated and reheated at mealtimes.

This is. 5. Pre-cooked mealsthis is my approach for breakfasts and lunches, and is perfect for meals that you don’t have time to prep on the days you will eat.All you need to do is grab them from the fridge, re-heat if necessary, and enjoy! Some ideas: breakfast: egg muffins, steel cut oats, breakfast sandwiches lunch: stir fries, sheet pan meals, jar salads.

The maximum that I recommend when prepping for the week in advance is 5 days. Keep up to 3 days of meals in the fridge and freeze the rest.

As previously mentioned it was boring chicken dishes that I was afraid of when I first considered meal prepping, but this is far from that. While still being a simple and easy to accomplish meal prep dish, this Roasted Chicken and Veggies is packed full of flavor..

I am a firm believer that the best way to cook a chicken is to roast it, nothing else quite gives it the same intense flavor. Meal planning is for everyone. Including you! To the uninitiated, meal planning can feel like an elusive practice or an overwhelming task, but that’s usually because we think about meal planning from the end point — when all the recipes have been selected, when all the groceries have been shopped for, and a week of dinners were successfully made. Freezer Meal Prep Tip: Good cooks like to keep some go-to meals on hand that don’t require a special trip to the store.

Keep chicken breasts in the freezer and you’ll always be ready. New to meal prepping? Stock up on these ingenious meal prep.

The foundation is, obviously, essentials like air, water, and shelter. Many preppers refer to The Rule of 3’s: You can survive 3 minutes without air, 3 hours without shelter in bad conditions, 3 days without water, and 3 weeks without food. Once you’ve got those covered you can then think about the next layer, and so on.

The fourth schedule that organizes the meal, in a secular rather than a sacred way, is the recipe, one of a number of lists that adorn the kitchens, including the nominal roll of available staff (the ‘strength’ rather than the ‘establishment’), and the duty roster that allocates them particular times of work.

  • I like to see you cook and fix meals you have good taste and you arrange things so it’s fun to watch!Send more videos!Wow the colors!Real enticing!

  • Love your prep videos. I have been slacking and needed motivation to prep for my husband and myself. I have watched your channel before and have come back to gain inspiration. Keep up the good work.

  • Ok I have to comment I loved seeing you use the tops of the green peppers which most throw away oh 9n the broccoli and any other veggies you use like the onion ends make awesome veggies broth I save all carrot tops cauliflower stalks broccoli stems the hard parts of the stems on asparagus radishes that are getting soft or about to go bad celery leaves and either make it up or freeze them until I need

  • Just found your channel & I’m pretty sure im gonna binge watch all of your meal prep videos. This is one of the best meal preps I’ve seen. You’ve gained a new subbie!! ����

  • while it’s true that medium and short-grain Japanese style rice is ideal for the rice balls, you can totally make them just fine with normal Western long grain rice!

  • It so annoying when like 80% of recipes I’m seeing lately are calling for things people are panic buying, STILL due to stupidity. Rice, flour, eggs, even tomato paste? Good luck.

  • This is FABULOUS!!! This is my first time watching any of your vids…but MAN am i glad i did!!!����
    Love the style of vid u did and the meals!!��������
    And lol bout the stumbling over edited. Def related to that cuz i do that a lot when i talk myself.������

    I also love love LOVE the fact that u put how much evthing cost(ed?)!
    Thats extremely helpful for me because i plan for monthly shopping!

  • One of my personal fave ways to do corn.
    1 bag of frozen corn
    1 bell pepper (I like red for the color) diced
    1-2 jalapeno peppers diced
    1/2 a medium onion
    olive oil or coconut oil usually about 1tbsp
    Juice of 1 lime
    1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper
    couple shakes of paprika
    salt and pepper
    1/4 cup of cut cilantro (I go heavy on this cuz I love it) your could swap out for Italian flat leaf parsley if you want but its not the same imo.

    You throw the olive oil in the pan and let it heat up on medium high heat. add all the veggies to the pan and saute til you get a good amount of browning on them. add your spices, lime juice and cook for another 1-2 minutes stirring frequently. pull from heat and toss in your cilantro and your good to go.

  • Extra virgin olive oil isn’t for cooking. It’s used for salads, topping finished foods, etc. Its smoking point is too low so there’s no point to it. Use a cooking olive oil.

  • all this food for a week! more then 100$!! for me frankly i can t afford this..it would be so helpful if u make some prep meals for people like me

  • This is great except now you have to eat the same shit every day. I would recommend adding some variety, especially if you struggle with your diet. If you have mastered a machine like mentality toward food and all you care about is your fitness goals, eat the same shit every day by all means.

  • Add canned lump crab and a little milk to the rice/corn mixture and salt and pepper. It’s a little sweet and very satisfying. Could also try creole seasoning instead of chili powder.

  • I know these are nearly 2 years old… But i have binged several of your videos tonight xD love the meals and can’t wait to try them

  • Hi I just found your video and do you have any tips for ppl just getting back into exercising and won’t to meal prep to also help and with all of it eventually make a big impact on their life style in the best possible way

  • Thank you for the video. My husband is trying to lose weight but is struggling especially since I’m pregnant. I can make almost everything you made and he would eat it.

  • I’m new. Thinking of doing this. Just two questions. What do u do with the meals after prepping on Sunday. Frig or freezer? And do u prep for one week or two?

  • Try white wine marinade for the fish. It makes it supper soft and it melts like butter when eating. Great videos, I would definitely recommend your channel to my boyfriend who likes to get his body and diet in shape ��

  • i really like your channel, i love how in depth you are while explaining the food and you really are great at informing the viewers about healthy eating!

  • The Breakfast casserole was really good. ive made it two ways now. 1) Shredded hash browns. 2) cubed potatoes (like in the video). The shredded hash browns came out way better. Cook them like the instructions say, then layer them in the baking pan.

  • This is a great video bro! I have a very stupid question that gives me confusion.. How do I measure/Weight out rice?? I know when its dry volume is less in comparison to when its cooked.. so do I measure it dry or when cooked? Thanks bro

  • Here’s a friendly tip: You can use mason jars instead of plastic bags for your smoothie ingredients. When you’re ready to blend your smoothie, take the lid off of the mason jar and screw on the base of your blender. You can blend your smoothie right in your mason jar! (Just be sure to use a REGULAR mason jar, NOT a wide-mouth mason jar. And don’t fill it more than 2/3’s full if you’re putting it in the freezer, or it could break.) This tip works for regular blenders like Oster, but not Vitamix-type blenders. It saves on clean-up and doesn’t use plastic.:)

  • Heyyy Nikole! You did it again knocked it out the park! Excellent video!�������� Yum yum �� for the muffins!!! #HealthNutFam�������� If your not rolling with Nikole then you not rolling �� #AllLoveOverHere ������

  • So where is the sauce for the rice and chicken and brocolli? I’m making all of these right now lol, so I’m missing what he eat that rice with

  • Good meals. I try them all out. But bro why so much oil. That would throw my macros out of wack for sure.

    But keep it coming brotha ����

  • Love to watch your videos while I am meal prepping. Are these meals for cutting or bulking? I am trying to drop some weight and I would like to see some meal prep ideas for cutting. Thanks and keep up the good work.

  • I was skeptic about NextLevelDiet because I thought that I would have to eat only broccoli to lose weight. I am eating only food I like and still losing weight.

  • One of the main things I LOVE about your channel is that you go right into it instead of talking a lot during the intro… great ideas btw!

  • awesome video overall. i just like the way he says watch it 10/20 times let it play in the background. and thats exactly what imma do! just cause u said it!

  • Question. I’m in the middle of this prep and ran out of milk ���� is that breakfast casserole possible to make without the milk and only egg whites?

  • Been working at Kroger for about a month now. Noticing the Kroger brands reassures me how accurate the prices are. Going to try this soon!

  • Make homemade sweet potato fries just lightly toss in olive oil either coat in a bit of salt and pepper or Italian seasoning both ways are good and u will never want or buy the frozen ones again lol trust me!!

  • I like it. Good quick prep. Thanks for the videos. They are really helping me out. I’m on Week 4 of your low carb prep/plan still going great. Mixing it up a bit and enjoying what we’re doing.

  • this is actually great, alot of ppl don’t meal prep for a whle week and this gives u different options that are a bit more like a treat:)

  • I love it because this is so  what I do when I have a busy or lazy week but I know I have to get it done. I only prep three days at a time anyway because that is what works for me. Rather than feel forced to be in the kitchen all day prepping for seven days, I just do 3 at a time. It keeps me from giving myself an excuse to quite. Yes it is usually a chopped salad kit or Caesar salad kit in a crunch.  I hope one of these companies sends you an air fryer. I would love to see what you do with one of those.

  • Hey Jeff, have you tried using an Air Fryer. No oil and the fries come out crispy especially if you leave them a minute or two longer. Just saying 😉

  • How do you make something like Sunflower crunch salad look delicious and I’m not a salad person. I enjoyed the video. I always enjoy your meal prep videos. Thanks

  • Awesome recipe! I actually do eat this the only difference between your chicken and mine I use Italian dressing to marinainate and then grill or fry.

  • Loving the 70s retro edit vibe ��
    But definitely some great recipes to meal prep in quarantine. No reason for you to not be eating good whilst working from home!

  • Make it simple. Visit website *Next Level Diet*, select food you like and thats it:D They give you complete 30 days meal plan which contains only food you have selected, training plan and fitness tips to boost your results. #NextLevelDiet

  • Use a fork to fluff the rice first before scooping it. Also use a pasta fork to scoop rice with. This will help to minimize clumping of the rice. I get anxiety when I see clumpy rice like that or when people use cups to scoop rice lol…

  • i dont see how ochazuke makes a good meal prep? if you build it in the tupperware and pour the tea its gonna get soggy later. gotta brew the tea later i guess

  • I’m assuming that the quantity of food you listed in the description was the amount needed to meal prep for both you and Alex, right? Should I just half those portions if I’m only meal prepping for myself? Apologies if the answer to this question is obvious, I’m new to this whole meal prepping thing and I don’t wanna overspend. Great video btw!

  • Such a great idea! I only wish my hubby could eat food like this. He hates veggies and fruit. That’s right…he don’t like fruit much. But a good idea for me! Its always good to have pre-made, ready to go, snacks or meals.

  • I’m a big fan of all your videos. They are so well put together. Love the ideas in this one and I need to try that protein powder. I don’t have an avocado emoji so I’ll leave ya this one instead. ��

  • These are really good recipes, where did you get your small jars, and the zip lock bags that you put the fruit for smoothies, I really liked them.

  • Love it!!! So I want to start eating healthier but I don’t know where to start or even how to make a healthy smoothie ����‍♀️
    Any tips or advice

    ������������ love all your videos

  • Hey bro..i am trying to gain weight..i am quite active at my work.. can i have mass gainer or weight gainer without going to gym?..

  • Loved the video! Quick question! What’s the best way to store the muffins to keep them going and fresh for a few days? Fridge or room temperature in a container?
