 No-Cook Meal Prep for the 1,500 – 1,799  Calorie Level (B) ♥

Note: If you are working with a higher calorie meal plan simply add in your portions where you need them so you can stay on track throughout the day.


 

Sometimes you have a week that is short on time but big on ambition. I knew I would regret skipping my meal prep for the week if I didn’t get my act together so I check out the Beachbody On Demand Blog for this awesome no-cook meal prep.

Go ahead and set up shop in your kitchen to prep for the week to come and you might get some great tips that will carry you throughout your Healthy Living journey since this is a sweat free, easy to assemble meal plan that comes together with a lot of pantry staples in record time.

Juicy berries in an oatmeal jar for breakfast, crunchy tuna lettuce cups for lunch, savory Asian chicken wraps for dinner…

This meal prep is ideal for a summer heat wave,  if cooking isn’t one of your strengths, or if like me, you don’t have a lot of time to spend on meal prep on any particular week.

This no-cook meal prep follows the meal plan for the 1,500-1,700 calorie level. It uses color-coded portion control containers to measure out the amounts of foods you’ll eat each day so you’ll get the right combination of macronutrients and won’t have to count calories. Green is veggies, purple is fruits, red is protein, yellow is carbs, blue is healthy fats, and orange is for seeds and dressings. Each day you get:

  • 4 green containers
  • 3 purple containers
  • 4 red containers
  • 3 yellow containers
  • 1 blue container
  • 1 orange container
  • 4 teaspoons

Here’s what your no cook meal plan for the week will look like when you’re done.
