No Cook Meal Prep

If you’re like me when you see meal prep pictures, you immediately get overwhelmed. With temperatures in the 100s this past weekend, the last thing I wanted to do was turn on my stove let alone my oven. Because Sunday night is fast approaching, I thought I would try this easy meal prep.  This is a very easy intro to meal prepping and it fits into my plans for next week that I will be sharing on my Page  7 Day Refresh Group.  Feel free to click the link and join us.

I am an intuitive eater, however for those who are not at that point, the menu suits people who try to stay in the 1,200–1,500 calories range.  A grocery list is included for you.  If you can make a salad, you can do this.  The meals are aeasy to assemble, full of flavor and ready in no time.  You will enjoy juicy berries in an oatmeal jar for breakfast, crunchy tuna lettuce cups for lunch, savory Asian chicken wraps for dinner…

These no-cook meals does involve one item that needs to be cooked and that’s the turkey or veggie burger.  I promise you its so easy and will be cooked before you can get hot!

This meal prep is ideal for a summer heat wave, or if cooking isn’t one of your strengths, or if you simply don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen let alone meal prepping.

Follow along and let’s get prepping.

Your step-by-step plan to assemble the no-cook meal prep:

1. Make the overnight oats. Place ¼ cup oats and ¾ cup Greek yogurt in a Mason jar or food storage container. Top with one cup of fresh or frozen fruit.

2. Thaw the frozen green beans, then prepare the Tuna Niçoise Lettuce Cups. Between four lettuce leaves, divide one can of tuna, ½ cup thawed green beans, ½ cup chopped cherry tomatoes, and five chopped olives. Dress with a lemon wedge or balsamic vinegar.

3. Prepare the Turkey or Roast Beef Salad. Combine 1 cup lettuce, ½ cup cherry tomatoes, ½ cup shredded carrots, 3 oz. deli roast beef, ½ cup beans of any kind, and dressing. If you are using a mason jar, place the dressing at the bottom and the lettuce on top. If you are using a food storage container, place the lettuce at the bottom. You can dress the salad during the meal prep, or wait until the day you eat it.

4. Make the Peanut Lime Dressing. Place 2 Tbsp. water, ¼ cup smooth peanut butter, 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice, 1 Tbsp. rice vinegar, 2 tsp. finely chopped fresh ginger, 2 tsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce, and 2 tsp. raw honey in a blender, and blend until smooth.

5. Prepare the Asian Chicken Wrap. Set out three food storage containers and place one 6-inch whole wheat tortilla in each. Chop 8 raw, unsalted cashews; chop cilantro or parsley (to taste); and chop green onion (to taste). On top of the tortilla, add 1 cup shredded cabbage, 3 oz. rotisserie chicken breast, cashews, cilantro or parsley, and green onions. Drizzle with 2 Tbsp. Peanut Lime Dressing.

6. Prepare the turkey or veggie burger. Set out two food storage containers and place a lettuce leaf and a tomato slice in each. Serve with one turkey burger or veggie burger patty that has been microwaved or toasted and topped with mustard. For a side, serve with ½ cup baby carrots or chopped bell peppers and ¼ cup hummus.
