If you’re new to meal prep, the whole process can be very daunting. So here’s a step-by-step guide on how to make a whole week worth of food in a few hours. This should make you: 6 portions of chicken, 6 portions of meatballs, 12 muffins and 15 pancakes.
What we are going to make:
Banana Pancakes with Blueberries (for prep – double the normal recipe)
(Just follow the recipe and add a few blueberries into your pancake batter once you’ve scooped the batter into the pan.)
Jerk Chicken with Coconut Milk Rice with Kidney Beans (rice recipe here links to a different page, couldn’t have explained it better myself – although I tend to add the coconut milk when the rice is almost cooked – to have a somewhat sticky rice situation)
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
- Prep the chicken and put in the oven.
- Boil/ roast your potatoes for the mash.
- Make meatballs.
- Make rice.
- Make egg muffins.
- Make pancakes.
In this order – you will be cooking things on the hob while your oven is working – for optimal time and energy use!
