It is just us, or does being a responsible adult somehow seem inextricably linked to being able to prep healthy meals during the work week? Obviously, a fresh, hot meal will always take the cake, but we have to admit that reheating leftovers from a painstakingly prepared large batch of something delicious is nearly as good.
From shrimp tacos to honey sriracha glazed meatballs, spending Sunday nights making these large-batch meals will save you tons of money and give you peace of mind, knowing that you’re eating food that’s good for you and doesn’t contain gallons of hidden butter and oil, like a lot of the takeout you’d be having otherwise.
To prove that weekly meal prep can be yummier and more fun than you might think, we’ve rounded up some of our favorites. Click through the gallery to know what to stock up on next time you go to the supermarket.
