This dish is not only quick and easy to prepare, but also incredibly versatile, allowing you to use whatever vegetables you have on hand.

3. Baked Salmon with Quinoa and Roasted Vegetables

For a dinner option that's as nutritious as it is delicious, try baked salmon with quinoa and roasted vegetables. Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for heart health and may also aid in weight loss. Pair the salmon with cooked quinoa and a medley of roasted vegetables, such as broccoli, carrots, and cauliflower. Drizzle with olive oil and season with your favourite herbs and spices before baking until tender. Store individual portions in Houszy's rectangular glass meal prep containers for a convenient grab-and-go meal option.


4. Cottage Pie with Sweet Potato Mash

For a comforting meal that is perfect for colder weather, why not try cottage pie with sweet potato mash? This British classic is made with lean minced beef or turkey, mixed vegetables, and a rich tomato sauce, topped with creamy sweet potato mash. It's a hearty and satisfying dish that's sure to become a family favourite. Use Houszy's 2-compartment glass meal prep containers to portion out individual servings for easy reheating throughout the week.


5. Mediterranean Chickpea Salad

Switch things up with a refreshing Mediterranean chickpea salad. Chickpeas are a great source of plant-based protein and fibre, making them an excellent addition to any meal. Combine cooked chickpeas with diced cucumber, cherry tomatoes, red onion, and feta cheese in a tangy vinaigrette dressing. Garnish with fresh parsley and a squeeze of lemon juice for added flavour. Store the salad in Houszy's round glass meal prep containers for a quick and nutritious lunch option.

6. Turkey and Veggie Skewers with Brown Rice

Fire up the grill for some delicious turkey and veggie skewers paired with brown rice. Turkey is a lean source of protein, while vegetables provide essential vitamins and minerals. Thread chunks of turkey breast onto skewers with your favourite vegetables, such as bell peppers, onions, and zucchini. Grill until the turkey is cooked through, and the vegetables are tender. Serve with a side of cooked brown rice for a balanced and satisfying meal. Use Houszy's 3-compartment glass meal prep containers to separate the components until you are ready to eat.

Elevate your meal prep game with spinach and feta stuffed chicken breast. This impressive dish is surprisingly easy to make and burst with flavour. Simply butterfly chicken breasts and stuff with a mixture of sautéed spinach, garlic, and crumbled feta cheese. Bake until the chicken is cooked through, and the filling is hot and bubbly. Serve with a side of roasted sweet potatoes for a complete meal. Store individual portions in Houszy's rectangular glass meal prep containers for easy reheating and portion control.


8. British-Inspired Prawn and Avocado Salad

For a light and refreshing meal, try a British-inspired prawn and avocado salad. Prawns are low in calories and fat but high in protein, making them an excellent choice for weight loss. Combine cooked prawns with diced avocado, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and red onion in a simple lemon and olive oil dressing. Toss until well coated and serve chilled. Store the salad in Houszy's 2-compartment glass meal prep containers, with the dressing kept separate until ready to eat, for a crisp and delicious lunch option.
