Meal Prep: 5 Healthy Recipes To End January On A High Note

It's always a good idea to think ahead.

Every week we bring you Meal Prep to help you lay out healthy weekly meals. Do your shopping, spend a few hours cooking on the weekend, and enjoy the fruits of your labor all week long. A lot of thought goes into curating them, ensuring there’s a good balance of nutrition and delicious fun.

We have a very delicious week for you, complete with Scottish oat biscuits. But first, the day begins with a very winter-appropriate frittata ― we’re talking squash and kale. For lunch we have a vegetable-forward soup. And for dinner a quick Mexican chicken dish served along black beans and rice (which makes for the best leftovers). And then, the oat biscuits. 

These biscuits are made with whole wheat flower and a minimal amount of sugar. Yes, there is butter, but it’s also loaded with heart-healthy oats. This is just what you need to lift your spirits when the 4 o’clock lull hits.

Altogether, these are the recipes that are going to get you through the week feeling great.
