19 dinner meal prep recipes that take 60 minutes or less

These healthy dinner meal prep recipe ideas will be ready in less than hour, perfect for a Sunday meal prep session.


I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, a solid meal prep routine has the power to change lives. How do I know that? It’s changed mine.

The reason meal prep is so effective for transforming lifestyles for the better is because it saves the most important thing of all – time.

Time is a finite resource. The biggest reason people find themselves making unhealthy choices is usually due to a lack of time.

But meal prep can change all of that.

Dinner is a sticking point for plenty of us. After a long (possibly stressful) day, the last thing you usually feel like doing it cutting up salad, roasting veggies and creating a sauce from scratch.

It’s much easier to buy something in a box that’ll be done in a few minutes. Or possibly even worse from your health if you make it a habit – buying takeaway food.

It’s just far too easy to do.

But meal prep can change all of that. With delicious, satisfying and healthy meals like these dinner meal prep recipes, you can have food waiting for you for the whole week in less than 60 minutes.

I like to cook two on a Sunday and alternate them throughout the week. That way you don’t get sick of them. They’re also perfect for reheating at work the next day!
