Mediterranean Bowls | Meal Prep


Happy Sunday fitfam! It’s meal prep day! Tomorrow starts Day 1 of Katy Hearn’s Spring Challenge so I’m getting my lunches all set for the week.

So one of my favorite things to meal prep for work lunches is Mediterranean bowls! They’re not only super easy but filling and delicious! Here’s what you’re going to need:

Ingredients

  • quinoa (this time I went for tri-color quinoa)
  • hummus (roasted red pepper is my favorite)
  • cucumber
  • carrot
  • cherry tomatoes
  • choice of meat (I’m using lean beef stew meat from Trader Joes)
  • olive oil cooking spray

Steps

  1. Measure out quinoa to water ratio and fill pot with water (lol, I missed this step in the YouTube video)
  2. Bring the pot of water to a boil
  3. Preheat oven to 350° F
  4. While everything is preheating, dice veggies
  5. Add quinoa to boiling water and reduce to simmer with lid on
  6. Layer a baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat with olive oil cooking spray
  7. Place meat on baking sheet and season with rosemary
  8. Bake meat for 10 mins or until desired finish
  9. Take quinoa off heat and cool for 10 mins
  10. Portion out your cucumber, cherry tomatoes, carrots and hummus into tupperware for each meal
  11. Once meat has finished cooking, let cool for 10 minutes
  12. Add portions of quinoa and meat to tupperwares
  13. Put in the fridge and enjoy throughout the week!
  14. Either reheat or eat cold for lunches

Here are the calories and macros for my meal prep! Your nutritional information will be slightly different dependent on what meat you use, what brands of hummus, and serving sizes.
