Happy Sunday, meal preppers! This week’s meal plan features a new breakfast recipe that’s great for Valentine’s (or Galentine’s) next week. Plus a few of my go-to meal prep recipes for lunches and dinners. Cheers!
If you’ve never been here before, welcome! My meal prep posts go a little something like this: 1) meal plan (use any or all of it!), 2) snack ideas, and 3) links to the containers you see here. You can also download a free, printer-friendly version of the meal plan along with all of the recipes, nutrition info, and scannable My Fitness Pal barcodes. These printer friendly meal plans are exclusive content for email subscribers, but once you sign up, you’ll be able to access all my weekly meal plans that are available in printer-friendly format! I’m still working to update old meal plans with this new feature, but all future ones will have this available. And bonus – you can also access these plans early, sometimes up to a week ahead of non-subscribers!

The Meal Plan
You may notice that my weekly meal plans only account for 6 out of the 7 days of the week. Don’t worry, that’s intentional and there are a few reasons for it. First, food freshness is quickly fading by day 6 and I don’t like to push beyond that limit. Second, I like to leave a little room for spontaneity, so I give myself some space in my meal plan for one or two meals of takeout or dining out (usually on the weekend). You can adjust this meal plan to meet your needs, but I always share what I’m actually prepping and eating so you can decide if it will work for you too.
Shop the Containers
Raspberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats
The best part about these gorgeous oats is that the pretty pink color is also the source of bright and tangy raspberry flavor. Once the oats set up overnight, they develop an almost velvety texture thanks to the creamy Greek yogurt and cream cheese that’s mixed in.
Tuscan White Bean & Spaghetti Squash Skillet
This dish is lower carb than a lot of skillet meals thanks to the spaghetti squash, but it still feels hearty thanks to all the goodies packed inside – especially the beans!
Korean Inspired Ground Beef Bowl
Slightly sweet and spicy ground beef is paired with rice, carrot ribbons, broccoli, and rice.
Juicy Air Fryer Chicken
Meal prepping with chicken can leave you at risk of dried out chicken, unless you use my secret to the getting the juiciest chicken breasts every time! All you need is salt, sugar, and a few spices to make your own chicken brine at home.
Roasted Butternut Squash and Kale Salad
Hearty kale is paired up with sweet roasted butternut squash, tangy dried cranberries, creamy goat cheese, and crunchy candied pecans. It’s all topped off with a sweet and tangy honey mustard dressing. A perfect winter salad!
