Your 1-Week Make-Ahead Meal Plan

Batch cooking doesn’t necessarily mean eating the same thing all week. Actually, it’s quite the opposite – you can use batch cooking as a tool to ensure your week is filled with nutritious and varied meals. When you cook ahead, you can make some meals entirely in advance and also prepare various recipe components such as roasted vegetables, quinoa, proteins and sauces. On busier days, you can simply reheat and eat, but when you have a few extra moments, you can assemble your prepared components with a fresh ingredient such as a quick-cooking protein like shrimp. By implementing our tips and tricks, you’ll actually be spending less time in the kitchen and more time enjoying your meals. Ready to get started? Check out the game plan on the next page for a list of weekend prep tasks.
