25 Easy Meal Prep Recipes You’ll Make Over and Over Again

It happens every few weeks without fail. I look up from my laptop as the clock strikes 5:30 p.m. and all of a sudden realize that 1. I have to make something for dinner and 2. I have absolutely no clue what that dinner is going to be. I know I’m not alone in this all-too-regular dilemma, but I can’t help but feel like it says something about my adulting abilities (or, occasionally, lack thereof). Meal preppers: 1, Lauren: 0.

Even just a loose meal plan and a little forethought can prevent those hanger pains that tend to creep in as I search my refrigerator and kitchen cabinets, hoping that I won’t have to resort to my trusty takeout go-to. Sure, you have to invest a little bit of time up front, but it will all be worth it when you don’t fall victim to those vicious delivery fees.

We’re looking for something quick, we’re looking for something easy, we’re looking for something with maximum flavor—without maximum time spent at the stove.
