5 Healthy Make-Ahead Meals For The Workweek

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.
