Want to know how to meal prep a week’s worth of food in an hour? Sheet pans. Load up a baking pan with chicken, different veggies, drizzle some olive oil, and season it all to your preference when you’re meal prepping. The Italian seasoned broccoli, red onion, and cherry tomatoes go great with the chicken salad and pair well over rice or quinoa. The next four are all sheet-pan, easy meal-prep recipes you can prep in 30 minutes or less!
13. Sheet Pan Roasted Cilantro Lime Chicken
One of my secrets is cooking a main dish of protein that can be dressed up and served a number of ways. This cilantro lime chicken is just as good in tacos as it is over a chicken salad. Or you stuff them in a burrito or layer it on a bed of rice. Have kids? Make them some delicious, protein-filled quesadillas.

This is the one for you if you’re looking for a healthy chicken dish loaded with veggies. Sweet potatoes, green beans, bell pepper, and broccoli served with chicken and topped in a cheese makes this budget friendly meal a winner in my book! You can also turn this into a chickpea salad if you need a replacement. Double the recipe with the chickpea salad alternative and you’ve got healthy lunches and meals ahead for the whole week!
15. One Pan Balsamic Chicken and Veggies
This is the second dish from Chelsea’s Messy Apron and is amazing! It has a totally different set of flavor than the other sheet-pan recipes, but is incredibly easy to throw together.
The balsamic glaze takes no time to put together and serves well as a dipping sauce for the chicken and veggies. If you have a hard time eating broccoli, this chicken salad recipe is for you!
16. Garlic Chicken Stir Fry
If you love garlic, put this recipe at the top of this week’s meal plan list. This Asian inspired chicken is perfect for feeding the whole family or getting you through the rest of the week! I love putting it over some rice for a great post-workout meal, but if you’re trying to avoid the carbs, double up on the veggies and call it a day.
17. Slow Cooker Chicken Chili
Even though I’ve always been a huge fan of slow cookers, I’ve only just started using them to make soups and chili! It takes 6-8 hours to cook, but will give you 6+ servings. Put this on right before you go to bed, wake up, and pack your lunch!
18. Healthier 20 Minute Sesame Chicken
What I love about asian dishes is how easy they are to make and how they stay good for several days! This healthy take on sesame chicken is lighter on the brown sugar and honey but still heavy with flavor. I wish it had some veggies tossed in, but get creative and add them yourselves! Red bell pepper, snap peas, and broccoli would be great to add.

24. 30 Minute One Pan Beef Penne
Unfortunately I don’t eat a ton of pasta these days because if I even look at carbs I’ll gain weight. That being said, every once in a while I like to treat myself to some rich, carby, cheesy pasta. This one pan penne is loaded with beef and chunks of mozzarella cheese, and you can do it all in one skillet
25. Grilled Italian Sausage Wraps
Sausage wraps were a staple in my house growing up. My dad would fire up the grill and 15 minutes later I’d be chowing down. This recipe definitely dresses them up a bit more but the mix of garlic, cheese, and tomatoes definitely take this to the next level.
7 Cheap Breakfast Ideas to Kick Off Your Day
Breakfast is usually my hardest meal of the day, but creating a few staples in my rotation has made all the difference. I recently compiled these all together in one place: breakfast ideas.
26. Superfood Instant Pot Oatmeal in a Jar
Oatmeal is one of the easiest things to meal prep for breakfast! If you’re looking for a quick breakfast idea, this instant pot oatmeal is perfect!
This is also the best looking oatmeal I’ve ever seen. You can load up the toppings with whatever you have on hand. This one has apples, walnuts, blueberries, sliced up carrots, and flax seed.
27. Slow Cooker Peanut Butter Oatmeal
I have an unhealthy obsessions with peanut butter so this recipe totally caught my eye when I saw it. This slow cooker oatmeal takes about 7-8 hours so you can put it on right before you go to bed or before you leave for work in the morning! You’ll have breakfast ready to eat.
28. Sweet Potato and Black Beans Breakfast Burritos
Breakfast burritos make for a great grab & go breakfast. Freeze the burritos for the perfect breakfast meal prep & they are vegetarian!
You can re-heat them in about a minute and eat it on your way to work. You could also make some eggs to stuff in the burrito for extra protein.
29. Mostly Prepped Sausage and Eggs: “Breakfast bomb”
If you have a bit of extra time in the morning or you’re willing to get up a few minutes early, then this is what I recommend. Make a “breakfast bomb” of whatever meat & veggies you want. This is your base for breakfast.
Then each morning, crack some eggs into your pan, and when they’re halfway done, drop a scoop of the meat & veggies in.
Do this and you’ll have a fresh breakfast every day while also cutting down on the time you have to spend each morning.
30. Crustless Spinach Bacon Quiche
Quiche is a an easy meal prep idea! You spend a bit of time making one and you can eat away at it all week. This is a great option if you want to sneak some veggies into your diet. I do recommend eating it within a few days of first making it though.
31. Keto Egg Muffins with Sausage and Veggies
Finding breakfast ideas that taste good throughout the week is tough. Egg muffins usually work well for me! They reheat easily & with a little hot sauce, they taste great.
I usually make 20-25 at a time and eat 5 a day for breakfast or a quick protein-packed snack.
You can also change up the meat and veggies used each time you make it! Once made, they take about a minute to heat up and can easily be eaten on the go.
32. Green Smoothies
Green smoothies are a regular for me! It’s by far the easiest way I load up on veggies in my diet. They’re super easy to make and store easily in mason jars.
Load up your blender with whatever greens you have on hand like spinach or kale. Add a green pear or green apple and 2 cups of water and you’re good to go.

At 225 calories a serving, this recipe will help you save money, time, and eat healthy. Everything I’m trying to do.

One of my absolute favorite meal prep combos is pasta with sundried tomatoes! Add in some spinach and other veggies and you have a super healthy, but really good tasting pasta. If you want to up the protein simply add some chicken. At less than $2/bowl this is a super great budget friendly meal a one of my favorite chicken ideas!
