How to Meal Prep if You Hate Leftovers

Tell us if you can relate…


A lot of people tell us one of the reasons they don’t meal prep is because either they or someone in their home won’t eat leftovers.




But guess what? It’s still possible to get all of the time-saving and stress-busting benefits of meal prepping WITHOUT having to eat last night’s dinner!


Here’s how: instead of cooking entire meals in advance, you cook and/or prep your INGREDIENTS ahead of time.

  • Proteins

  • Carbs like whole grains, rice, quinoa, etc.

  • Pre-chop your veggies


Then, just before it’s time to eat, just assemble the meal from your prepped ingredients.


Some ideas:

  • You could poach chicken breasts, brown turkey or tofu, or roast a chicken.

  • Bake some sweet potatoes, steam some rice, or prep some quinoa.

  • Chop onions, dice carrots, or slice peppers.


Having everything prepped and on standby makes throwing together a balanced meal fast and easy.


Chefs often say:

“Cooking is easy. All you have to do is make sure all of the ingredients taste good. If they all taste good, then your meal will taste good.”


And it’s true!


You could create a taco or burrito bowl, make a stir fry, assemble a casserole, or even create one of our coach's favorite go-to meals when they're busy: the Anything Bowl!


The Anything Bowl is definitely NOT gourmet but it is delicious. 


All you do is combine a portion each of protein, starchy carbs, and vegetables in a bowl, and (this is the key) top it with your favorite healthy sauce or seasoning.


You could add guacamole, sriracha, low-sugar barbecue sauce, or coconut aminos. Heat it up, and voila! It’s time to eat.
