How To Master This Week's Meal Prep

3. Make a big batch of slaw; It won't wilt like a lettuce salad, which means it'll taste good for longer!

You can use cabbage as the base, but lots of other crunchy vegetables will work if you slice them thinly enough. Fennel, carrots, and bell peppers are all great choices. Add dried fruit for a little sweetness, too.

6. Make a big batch of oatmeal in the slow cooker.

You can eat a serving straight out of the slow cooker as soon as it's done, then portion out the rest and keep it in the fridge. For the next couple of mornings, all you need to do is heat the already cooked oatmeal. Recipe here.

7. Instead of cooking a big batch of grains, roast a sheet tray (or two) of potatoes and sweet potatoes instead.
