Here's How To Meal Prep A Week Of Lunches On A Budget

We've got you covered.

Eating healthy on a budget isn't always easy. But with this sheet pan veggie meal prep — part of our 7-Day No-Added-Sugar Challenge — you'll get delicious and wholesome lunches that'll fuel your whole week.

First thing's first: Here's the recipe for the sheet pan vegetables that will be the base for all your lunches.

You can serve them over rice, pasta, quinoa, or with meat. Or try one of these quick and easy ideas:

1. Bake them with eggs for a hearty one-pan frittata.

Recipe Yield: 9” frittata, 4 portions

Total time: 15 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

* 1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil

* 2 cups sheet pan vegetables

* 6 large eggs

* ½ tsp. kosher salt

* ¼ tsp. ground black pepper

INSTRUCTIONS:

Preheat your oven to 400°.

Heat olive oil in a 9” cast-iron skillet over medium heat and add vegetable mixture. Cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring often. (This will help dry out the vegetables, and prevent them from giving off water, when they bake again in the oven.)

Meanwhile, beat eggs with salt and pepper and add to skillet. Immediately transfer to oven and cook for 9-12 minutes, until eggs are set.

Let cool completely, then pack and store in a lunch container with fresh greens and balsamic vinaigrette.

2. Pile them into a pita, then top with DIY Greek yogurt tzatziki.

Recipe yield: 1 portion

Total time: 10 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

* 1 pita

* 1 cup sheet pan vegetables

* ½ cup roasted chickpeas (see recipe below)

* ¼ cup tzatziki

INSTRUCTIONS:

Wrap vegetables and chickpeas in a pita, then top with tzatziki. (Or, if packing lunch to go: Pack everything into a divided lunch container, and assemble when ready to eat.)

3. Toss them in a salad with fresh greens, roasted chickpeas, and sweet potatoes.

Recipe yield: 1 portion

Total time: 10 minutes

INGREDIENTS

• 1 cup baby spinach

• ¾ cup roasted sweet potatoes

• ¾ cup roasted chickpeas

• ½ cup sheet pan vegetables

• ½ cup quinoa, cooked

• 3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

• 1 tbsp. balsamic reduction

• kosher salt, to taste

• ground black pepper, to taste

INSTRUCTIONS:

Just put everything in a bowl and mix.

And here's the recipe for the roasted chickpeas that you'll use in the salad and the pita.
