Try mixing up your proteins

If you always prep chicken, switch to fish or tofu for a change. Experiment with different seasonings and marinades to add flavour.

Switch up your grains

Instead of always using rice, try quinoa, farro, or couscous. These grains have different textures and flavours that can make your meals more interesting.

Incorporate more vegetables into your meal prepping

Roast a variety of veggies like sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts, and carrots, and use them as a base for your meals. You can also try making veggie-based dishes like roasted vegetable lasagna or cauliflower fried rice.

Get creative with your snacks

Instead of prepping the same boring snacks, try making energy balls, homemade granola bars, or veggie dip with cut-up vegetables.

Play with different cuisines

If you always make Italian-inspired meals, try making Asian-inspired meals or Mexican-inspired meals. This will add variety to your meal prep and keep things interesting.

Don’t be afraid to try new recipes

Look up recipes online or in cookbooks and try making something new each week. This will keep your meal prep exciting and prevent you from getting bored with the same meals.

Meal prepping doesn’t have to be boring. By mixing up your proteins, grains, and vegetables, getting creative with your snacks, trying different cuisines, and trying new recipes, you can make meal prepping fun and exciting.
