‘Try for 5’ Meal Prep Ideas

19 Oct, 2023

Make every week feel like National Nutrition Week with our easy yet nutritious meal prep ideas. With this year’s theme being ‘try for 5’, we are emphasising the importance of getting your daily dose of fruits and vegetables, known as the 5 a Day goal. We want to show you that achieving this goal is easier than you may think!

Why 5 a day, every day?

Eating your 5 a day can bring incredible health benefits into your life. Packed with essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, fruits and vegetables are your key to maintaining optimal health. They provide the necessary nutrients your body needs to function properly, boost your immune system, and protect against chronic diseases.

Deep diving into the world of meal prep could help you effortlessly incorporate more veggies into your everyday life! Our talented Dietitians have curated two fantastic meal prep ideas that will not only help you reach your 5 a day goal but also satisfy your taste buds…

Veggie Bowl meal prep topped with boiled eggs

Veggie Bowl
One of our favourite meal ideas is the Veggie Bowl. This versatile dish allows you to mix and match an array of colourful vegetables to create a nutritious and satisfying meal. Start with a base of greens like broccoli and green beans, then add some well-seasoned roasted sweet potato for a burst of flavour. Top it off with a couple of eggs for an easy protein source or swap this out for grilled chicken or tofu and drizzle with a dressing or sauce of your choice for even more flavour.

Lentil and Chickpea Pasta Salad
If you’re looking for a quick and easy option to set you up for success this week, why not try our Lentil and Chickpea Pasta Salad? Simply grab some chickpea pasta, cook and cool. Add a medley of fresh vegetables and lentils. Sprinkle with some parmesan cheese, top with basil leaves, mix it up, and you’re good to go!

Set yourself up for success

We hope these meal prep ideas inspire you to incorporate more vegetables into your daily routine. Remember, achieving your 5-a-Day is easier than you think when you have delicious and nutritious options ready at your fingertips.
