15 healthy and easy meal prep bowl recipes

These meal prep bowl recipes are a great way to eat a healthier and more satisfying lunch or dinner everyday. I love that you cook something once and you have lunch or dinner for the week. You will save so much time and save so much money. No more running to the drive-thru for lunch! These meals have way more nutrients to keep you full longer than a hamburger and fries.

I am pregnant right now and I seem to be hungry ALL DAY LONG. I love to have some of these meals waiting for me in the fridge so I can get a quick meal before I become hangry.

My husband takes these to work for lunch and I eat them at home too, so something I like to do is on meal prep day make two different meals, that way we can switch it up so we aren’t eating the same thing every day. You could also double one of the recipes to make enough meals for two.

These are my favorite meal prep containers. They are big enough for the meal, the lids stay on tight, they’re affordable, reusable and BPA free.


If you prefer glass containers, these are a great option. They are more expensive than plastic, but they’re reusable and you’ll get a ton of use out of them. I love the locking lids on these containers.
