5 Healthy Make-Ahead Meals For The Workweek

Posted: 09/12/2012 9:13 am

Most people love the idea of cooking on Sunday for the week ahead. But usually what comes to mind is lasagna pan Tetris, as pieces of various shapes get chiseled off throughout the week. It's sometimes hard to think of healthy options beyond creamy, cheesy casseroles.

Most of my clients have me provide them with these types of healthier options for the week, which get left in various labeled Tupperware containers ready for the reheating. If you don't mind putting in a very little bit of cooking time, there are also some quick and easy sides and condiments that will provide the building blocks for a meal with just a touch of added effort the night of -- tossing the salad greens, boiling the pasta.

Here are some ideas for dishes you can make on Sunday that will last you the whole busy workweek ahead.

Most meat keeps pretty well pre-made. I love making my own sausage patties with different flavor combinations. To keep them healthier, I’ll often use ground chicken or turkey. You can sear off the patties and then reheat individually throughout the week. Sometimes they taste just as good cold inside a sandwich or wrap, on top of a salad, or even just on a plate with some mustard!
