Weekly Dietitian Tip: Meal Prepping (Part 2 of 2)
2 Ways to Meal Prep: Full and Partial
- Full: Prepare & portion into containers ahead of time to easily pull from the fridge. (Example: Prepare 5 containers of chicken, rice, & veggies per person.)
- Partial: Prepare INGREDIENTS of meals ahead of time that you can easily turn into various meals. (Example: Prepare a large amount of grilled chicken, brown rice, and have veggies cut and ready to use at a moment’s notice.) Then, you can recreate meals with those ingredients all week long, such as chicken stir fry, chicken fajitas, chicken with a dipping sauce, BBQ ranch chicken, or chicken casserole.
