Delicious meal prepping for weight loss means it suits your tastes and schedule. If we create a routine and make it easy with variety, then being healthy and losing weight is easy. I love variety, so this is simply an example of meal prepping for weight loss that may address both taste and a busy schedule because you get to build your own bowls.
Steps to delicious meal prepping for weight loss
1. Roast lots of vegetable for the week such as cauliflower, broccoli, yams, brussel sprouts, bell peppers, red onions, garlic, carrots, squash, etc.
2. Add protein which you can cook in the oven along with the vegetables above, or grill or sauté them in bulk. Try tofu, chicken, beef, turkey, fish, shrimp, garbanzo beans, black beans, etc.
3. Cook grains in your rice cooker such as wild rice, brown rice, quinoa, etc. Make it a hearty grain bowl or more of a lettuce bowl. I personally like the combination.
4. Chop some fresh raw vegetables such as cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, etc. (Skip this if raw vegetables don’t sit well in your belly).
Extras for delicious meal prepping
I think making extra delicious meal prepping for the purposes of weight loss or just health includes all the toppings. In my bowls, I like to add avocados, mangoes, fresh mint, hemp seeds, pepitas, dried cranberries, nuts, just to name a few. If you add what you like, every bite is delicious.
Don’t forget to add the dressing such as a vinaigrette, tahini dressing, green goddess, etc. You can also add hummus to the mix for an extra creamy texture.
Leftovers from meal prepping
What I love about meal prepping for bowls is that I never waste food. What is left over, I can add to a salad, side, or even toss in a soup/stew to create a completely different taste. All ingredients are separated so it can be used in anything. Easy and tasty is how we get long term health and weight loss results.
