Creating a weekly low carb meal prep can be surprisingly easy and save you so much time! Can you believe I was able to make a week worth lunch and dinner meals in under 2 hours?

Low Carb Weekly Meal Prep Made Easy

Lately, my husband and I have both had insanely busy schedules. He’s been flying more than normal – and has at least one meal on the plane. Since we’ve been meal prepping together, he already has lunch or dinner ready for him to take to to work and can avoid the temptation of picking up something unhealthy to eat. On his duty nights, I know don’t have to worry about cooking dinner for one. I’m less apt to pick up fast food and stick to my clean diet.

One of my best friends is the queen of meal prepping. When I told her that I wanted to start, she suggested for me to use TakeAlongs® Meal Prep Containers from my local Walmart! TakeAlongs® Meal Prep Containers are a divided base tray that holds 3.7 cups of food. This not only helps with prepping various foods, but it also helps with portion control.

TakeAlongs® Meal Prep Containers are perfect to take along for meals on-the-go and the ideal storage solution. We’re able to stack our meal prep containers in our refrigerator, leaving more space available in our refrigerator.

My favorite part of the TakeAlongs® Meal Prep Containers is the divide. I love being able to keep my food separate. For our lunches we’re able to prep yogurt, without worrying about it getting all over the other food in the container. I think I’m going to even attempt to meal prep bento boxes soon with the TakeAlongs® Meal Prep Containers!

I have found that my body responds better to a high protein, low carb diet. I feel full, more energized and think more clearly when I avoid carbs. This week we meal prepped Turkey Lettuce Wraps for lunch and Honey Lemon Chicken and Asparagus for dinner.

Turkey Lettuce Wraps

These are incredibly easy to make! If you like condiments, I suggest adding them later or using them for dipping because they will make the wrap soggy if you add it when making your meal prep. You can use any kind of lettuce you prefer for this, but I like to use romaine. I find that the leaves tend to wrap better. I like to use sides of yogurt and a hard boiled egg. Both are an excellent source of protein. Begin to hard boil your eggs before starting on your wrap. The key to meal prepping successfully is multitasking!

To put the wrap together, I place four romaine lettuce leaves overlapping each other. If you prefer a bigger wrap, add more. Place turkey on the leave you plan to use to start your wrap. Add cheese, tomatoes and onion next to the turkey. Wrap your lettuce beginning with the leaf the turkey is on. Try to do this as tightly as possible and secure the wrap with a toothpick. Place in your TakeAlongs® Meal Prep Containers.

By now, your hard boiled eggs should be finished. Place them under cold water for 30 seconds and peel. Place one egg in each TakeAlongs® Meal Prep Container. Hard boiled eggs are excellent snacks, so I like to make a few extra and store in the refrigerator. Even my toddler loves them!

In the smaller divide, add non-fat plain greek yogurt and granola. Apply the Quik Clik Seal lids and store in your refrigerator.

Honey Lemon Chicken and Asparagus

Did I mention this meal can be made using one pan? Your girl here loves SIMPLE. This recipe is simple, delicious and good for you. There is nothing better than that!

But First Some Tips!

  • Don’t like asparagus? Substitute with green beans, broccoli or zucchini

  • Cook this first and make the wraps while the Honey Lemon Chicken and asparagus bakes.

  • Serve with cauliflower rice. Use the extra sauce in the pan to drizzle on the cauliflower rice.

This recipe is so simple and delicious. It’s amazing as leftovers too. It’s currently my favorite dish to meal prep!

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Place your chicken and asparagus on the baking sheet, seasoning with salt and pepper.

In a mixing bowl combine lemon juice, honey, soy sauce, garlic and parsley and mix until well combined. Cover your chicken and asparagus with the mixture. Slice a lemon and place slices on top of chicken and asparagus. Cover the pan with foil and bake for 30 minutes.

While your meal bakes, heat up some cauliflower rice. I normally buy the cauliflower rice that you can steam in the bag. I told you guys that I love to make things as simple as possible!

Once the Honey Lemon Chicken and Asparagus has baked thoroughly, Add the chicken and asparagus to the large divide in the TakeAlongs® Meal Prep Container. Add cauliflower rice in the smaller divide. Use the extra juices from the pan to cover the chicken, asparagus and cauliflower rice.

Store in your refrigerator and you are done!
