Easy Fall meal prep ideas

Looking for some easy fall meal prep ideas? We'd all love to eat healthy home-cooked meals all week long, but few of us have the time to cook every night. That's where meal prep comes in. Most of us have a day or two free from work where we can catch up on other tasks. Use this time to prepare meals for the week so when you open the fridge door, hungry and tired, your dinner is ready and waiting for you.

Tips: Get yourself a set of air-tight sealable glass containers. Most ingredients will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days. Reheating rice is perfectly safe provided you follow these guidelines.

Monday: Sticky Ginger Soy Glazed Chicken

If you are new to meal prep, or even new to cooking in general, this Sticky Ginger Soy Glazed Chicken recipe is a good place to begin. The recipe is super simple to prepare and holds up well in the fridge. This meal isn't recommended for freezing as it would dry out the Garlic Noodles. If you are looking for a more freezer-friendly version, substitute rice for noodles. Note: the sticky ginger glaze will turn from clear to cloudy in the fridge, but the flavour is not affected.

Tuesday: Pan-Roasted Salmon with Garlic Rice and Green Beans

This Pan-Roasted Salmon with Garlic Rice and Green Beans recipe will help your Tuesday night dinner plans go swimmingly.

Wednesday: Easy Chicken Enchilada Casserole

The chicken thighs you bought this week will serve double duty in this Easy Chicken Enchilada Casserole. The chicken can keep well in the refrigerator for up to three days. So if Sunday is prep day, the chicken should be eaten by Wednesday.

Thursday: Mix & Match Meal Prep Burrito Bowls (vegan, gluten-free option)

Enjoy a hearty, simple and satisfying meatless meal with these Mix & Match Meal Prep Burrito Bowls. You can create four delicious lunches or dinners using what you have on hand in your fridge and cupboards.

Freezer Friday: Lasagna-Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms (Freezer to Oven)

These Lasagna-stuffed portobello mushrooms will give you all the flavour of lasagna without all the calories. When Friday finally rolls around, you'll love just taking this meal from the freezer and popping it in the oven.

We hope these easy fall meal prep ideas help make your week tasty and healthy.
