Want to get into meal prepping, but overwhelmed by how to make your meals? I’ve created a formula for the easiest, tastiest vegetarian meal prep recipe…Mix & Match Vegetarian Meal Prep!

How to do vegetarian meal prep for the weak, mix and match

I’ve always liked the idea of meal prep but always had a hard time jumping into it. For some reason, I thought it would be confusing or hard or time-consuming. Boy, was I wrong! As it turns out, making healthy lunches for the week is actually easier when you do it in big batches. And the reward? Healthy, flavorful lunches all week that aren’t hastily thrown together sandwiches.

How do you vegetarian meal prep for the week?

Pick one or two items from each food group to put in your meal prep boxes. Maybe on Monday, you want your protein to be egg and your veggie to be peppers…great! The next day you can have chickpeas with broccoli…also great! Mix and match without fear, everything goes well together (and you may even find a new favorite combination!)

      So glad to hear, Rebecca! 😀

  2. Robyn says:

    The nutrition facts are pre division, correct? 1025 calories has got to be the total for the prep.

    1. Sarah says:

      Hi Robyn! I just ran the numbers again to be sure. The 1025 calories is per serving, largely due to the beans, rice, and rich sauces. That said, these make a very filling lunch and can even be for dinner. Thanks for double checking! 😀

  3. RS says:

    3 cups of starch is a HUGE portion for 4 servings. I tend to use 1 cup for 5 servings usually. If you just cut down on that you’ll lose a significant amount of calories per serving without sacrificing flavor. These bowls look absolutely incredible I can’t wait to try.

      Thanks for the tip, and enjoy!! 😀
