Plotting out meals for the week doesn’t have to mean you’ll be eating bland, basic dishes. These Instagram accounts will help you get creative

The Master of Zoodles

@ljadeparker doesn’t skimp on taste with zoodle pesto pasta, shrimp scampi, and raw (healthy) cookie dough balls for dessert.

The Veggie Switch-Off

@floordeboor_fit alternates each day between layered fruit and yogurt or protein oats with peanut butter and banana and veggie lasagna or brown rice noodles with garlic Parmesan shrimp.

The Not-So-Sad Desk Salad

Make lunch for the whole week like @orangesandavocados, who packs bowls with radishes, tomatoes, feta, and hard-boiled eggs (or whatever protein you prefer).

The Snack Pack

Going simple with snacks of fruits, veggies, and nuts will save you major cash—and calories too. Just ask @marekfitness.

The Buffet Method

@meowmeix preps buffet-style, so she can pick and choose what she wants to pack each day.

The “I’ll Have One of Everything”

The @foodprepprincess shows that chicken breast can actually be cool. We can really get behind that frittata and wrap situation too.

The Simple Pleasures

Leave it to BBG devotee @winniebbg_ to keep her meal prep game so fresh and so clean.

The Colorful Paleo Plate

@lifeofavegetarian makes some stellar lunch packs, including this one with spinach and zebra tomatoes, beetroot relish, plums, and some sweet and salty snacks.

The Divide and Conquer


PHOTO: INSTAGRAM

Chocolate blender muffins, almond butter, pesto zoodles and lentil Bolognese (à la @hannah.banana89) is plenty wonderful in our book.

The Meal-In-a-Jar


PHOTO: INSTAGRAM

Quinoa mason jar dinners: perfectly totable and easy to stack away in the fridge, at least according to @fitchickscook.

The Overnighter

@100weeks makes Neopolitan overnight oats—it’s easy prep for a big lunch that tastes like dessert.

The Prep Master

@mealprepmaster has the best of the best, including this salad and sweets action. We’d give more than an honorable mention to the spaghetti squash too (it makes for a healthy version of mac ‘n cheese).
