Meal Prep Plan: How I Prep a Week of 1500-Calorie Days for the Grill16 maja 2019
If you’re sticking to a calorie budget, you know it can sometimes be a challenge to keep your meals feeling fresh and fun. A great way to switch things up? Throwing some of your meals on the grill, which is easy to do during these warm spring and summer months.
This Power Hour is full of wholesome, satisfying building blocks like lean protein, fresh vegetables, and whole grains. Carve out an hour or two this weekend, and you’ll have a week of easy grillable dinners plus breakfasts, lunches, and even snacks taken care of for the week. Here’s how to do it.
This meal prep plan is for anyone who doesn’t have the time or energy to start from scratch on weeknights, but still wants to enjoy a hot, homemade meal. By chopping the vegetables, blitzing together a sauce, and marinating meat on Sunday, all that’s left to do is toss the components onto the grill once dinner rolls around. Oh, and since these easy dinners all come together on the grill, there’s barely any mess to clean up at the end of the night.
This week’s shopping list is a feel-good mix of produce, meat, dairy, and pantry favorites. It assumes staples like olive oil, salt, and pepper are already on hand.
