Meal Prep Steps
Here are the steps to make this Vegetable Meal Prep. If you want these steps in a printable Meal Prep Guide, be sure to join my email list.
Chop the veggies. If you want to save time, you can buy pre-chopped vegetables from the grocery store. Feel free to get creative with the vegetables that you use. I used broccoli, Brussels sprouts, butternut squash, and mushrooms.
Toss the chopped vegetables with some melted fat and salt. Bake the veggies for 45-55 minutes in a 425 degree oven.
After the vegetables have done cooking, roast the chicken in the oven at 400 degrees for 35 minutes. Feel free to use chicken thighs or chicken cutlets, and season the chicken as desired.
Make the rice on the stovetop, in a rice cooker, or in the Instant Pot. You can make a double batch of rice if you want to make it last all week.
Make the pizza dough. You can use my Cassava Flour Pizza Dough recipe for a gluten-free, grain-free, and yeast-free option. Feel free to make a double batch.
Prep the salad greens. To save time, you can buy pre-washed and pre-chopped romaine.
Store the veggies or prep the meals. You can either make your meals on the day of, or you can assemble them and put them into storage containers to enjoy throughout the week. If you need some meal prep containers, these glass bowls with air-tight lids are a great option.
What You Need to Assemble the Meals
