How to Meal Prep with Hungryroot

Breakfast 

Order a few containers of our Banana Bread Overnight Oats and make a batch of overnight oats for the week. Overnight oats can stay good in the fridge for up to five days.

First, stir a few containers of the oats into a large bowl or glass jar. If you’re using three containers, just triple the amount of milk and yogurt listed on the package. Add a few dashes of cinnamon, stir and place in the fridge!

Bonus: we’ll be rolling out a new breakfast oatmeal in March!

If you want to add more bulk to your oats, try adding one or more of the following:

  • 1 tablespoon of chia seeds per serving – adds heart-healthy Omega-3 fats, fiber, iron, magnesium and calcium
  • 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed meal per serving – adds heart-healthy Omega-3 fats, fiber, Vitamin B1, manganese and copper
  • 1 tablespoon of hemp seeds per serving – adds protein, Vitamin E, iron and magnesium
  • 1 tablespoon cacao nibs per serving – adds fiber, magnesium and potassium
  • 1  tablespoon pumpkin seeds per serving – adds magnesium, zinc, copper, iron and protein

Lunch

Many of our items are ready-to-eat and designed for lunches on the go, whether you’re working a shift at the hospital or in between university classes.

Bean Salads

Stock up on our ready-to-eat bean salads and enjoy for a light lunch or snack. For a hearty, complete meal, pair with one of our quinoa bowls. Or add them to your own veggies and grains to round out your meals.

Dinner 

If you’ve got just 30 minutes, you can batch cook a variety of our vegetables and eat them throughout the week.

Cook up a big batch of our Cauliflower Rice and season with your favorite seasonings. Store in the fridge and when you’re ready to eat, pair with your favorite Hungryroot sauces and proteins. Alternatively, try making a cauliflower rice porridge using our Cauliflower Rice and enjoy a warming, low-carb breakfast throughout the week.

Roast our Sweet Potato Mac, Butternut Squash and Carrot Chips together and save time. Preheat your oven to 425°F and drizzle veggies with a generous amount of olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread out onto a baking sheet and roast for 20-25 minutes until browned and tender. Pair them with your favorite greens and proteins for balanced meals throughout the week.
