Lunch Meal Prep Template

Burrito Bowls

These salads can be prepared to be eaten warmed up or cold.

Here is my go to lunch prep template for 5 days of lunch:

  • 20oz cooked and chopped lean protein (I normally bake it) – chicken breast, turkey breast, ground turkey, salmon
  • 1 can of beans, drained and rinsed – garbanzo, kidney, black, cannellini, etc…
  • 2 cups of crunchy veggies – celery/cucumbers raw or carrots/green beans/broccoli blanched in 30 secs of boiling water
  • 2 cups of uncooked filler – Cook filler before adding. I like to use rice, quinoa or orzo pasta
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • Garlic salt & Pepper to taste

Mix it all up in a big bowl and split in to 5 servings. This averages to about 350-400 cal per serving.

Some modification ideas to change it up

  • Mediterranean- green beans, garbanzo beans, black olives, red onions, toss with balsamic vinegar & lemon juice, top with feta
  • Southwest – tomatoes, canned corn, black beans, chopped cilantro, top with shredded cheddar cheese
  • Asian – snow peas, bamboo shoots, mung bean sprouts, splash of soy sauce & sesame seed oil or teriyaki sauce
