How to Meal Prep Lunches Without Getting Bored

When you’re trying to eat healthier, prepping your lunches ahead of time can seem like a great idea. You save time, spend less, and stay on track! But eating the same foods, day after day, can get old pretty quickly. So, if you want to avoid meal prep burnout, read on to discover my tips for planning fresh and exciting meals that you can look forward to all week long…

Tip 1: Plan a Cheat Meal

That’s right, treat yourself! At the beginning of the week, think of something you’d love to make and set a date. A weekly cheat meal is a great way to keep yourself motivated and break up the routine of healthy eating.

Tip 2: Switch Things Up

With so many delicious foods out there, it’d be a shame to have the same meals day in and day out. So, whether you’re mixing up your proteins, alternating between cold and warm meals, or adding different sauces and seasonings, try to incorporate small changes that switch up the flavor in a big way.

Tip 3: Try a New Recipe Every Week

It may be tempting to stick to your tried-and-true recipes, but that’s an easy way to get bored quickly. Challenge yourself to take on a new recipe every week and you might just find a new favorite to add to your rotation. Need inspiration? Ask friends about their go-to recipes, explore cooking blogs online, or surf the Fooducate Community Feed to see what others are cooking.

Whether you’re a meal prep pro or just starting out, meal prep burnout can happen to the best of us. It’s a sign that it’s time for a change, and change is good and until next week, be happy, healthy, and beautiful!
