Here’s a sample meal plan that you can prepare on Sunday:


  • Overnight oats: Combine rolled oats, milk (or plant-based milk), and your choice of toppings such as fruits, nuts, or seeds. Store it in an airtight container in the fridge overnight, and it’ll be ready to enjoy in the morning.


  • Meal-prep salads: Prepare a big batch of salad by washing and chopping your favorite vegetables (such as lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, bell peppers) and adding a source of protein like grilled chicken, chickpeas, or tofu. Store the salad in individual containers or in one large container, and keep the dressing separate until you’re ready to eat.


  • Veggie sticks with hummus: Cut up fresh veggies like carrots, celery, and bell peppers into sticks. Pack them in small ziplock bags or reusable containers along with some hummus for dipping.


  • Baked chicken breasts with roasted vegetables: Season chicken breasts with your preferred herbs and spices, then bake them in the oven. Meanwhile, chop a variety of vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots, toss them with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and roast them in the oven alongside the chicken.


  • Make-ahead freezer meals: If you have more time on Sunday, consider preparing some freezer-friendly meals that you can easily reheat throughout the week. Examples include soups, stews, casseroles, or pre-portioned meals that can be quickly heated in the microwave or oven.

Remember to store your prepped meals and ingredients properly to maintain freshness and avoid spoilage. Use airtight containers or resealable bags and label them with the date for easy identification.
