5 Quick and Easy Lunch Recipes

When it comes to meal prepping you want to make sure you’ve got the two most important qualities down. First and foremost you want to make sure that your meal prep is healthy. If it isn’t healthy then there’s no point in packing it. After all the whole goal of meal prep is eat well so that you can live well. The second most important aspect though is to make sure that you have a few easy recipes up your sleeve so that on busy weeks you don’t have to worry about having the time to meal prep. That’s where these 5 quick and easy lunch recipes for meal prep come into play.

SESAME PEANUT BUTTER BALLS

I love honey sesame sticks, but those calorie laden, sodium-filled little naughties don’t do me any favors!  I did a mash-up of those little loves of mine with another favorite – peanut butter – and created these semi-sweet, semi-savory, completely satisfying little balls.  Take the time to deeply toast your sesame seeds – I promise you it will be worth it in the flavor department, and it adds almost no time to an already quick recipe.  Store these little balls in your fridge in your Isolator Fitness Meal Prep Containers and reach for one whenever you need a quick snack.

I hope you enjoy this delicious addition to your healthy ISO lifestyle!

BLUEBERRY CARDAMOM OVERNIGHT OATMEAL

BLUEBERRY CARDAMOM OVERNIGHT OATMEAL

Serves 1

I recently had an early morning flight to catch, and I knew I wasn’t going to love the airport breakfast (or worse, in-flight!) options available at 6AM.  I took literally a few minutes the afternoon before my trip to whip up a batch of my personal favorite overnight oatmeal.  I packed it in a disposable container, packed a disposable spoon in some napkins, and stored my toasted walnuts in a Ziploc bag – nothing I needed to worry about washing out or saving when I got off the flight.  Let’s just say I was “that girl” on the plane, while everyone else was reluctantly chowing down on their free pretzels.  This breakfast is so tasty, so good for you, and so filling; pop this lovely start to your day in your ISOBAG and become the envy of other travelers.

SPINACH AND ISORICE SALAD

Serves 1

 Got some leftover ISOPASTA Rice in your fridge? Then you’ve got an amazing lunch or dinner ready to make in no time flat! Zippy peppadew peppers, creamy salty feta cheese, and nutty toasted walnuts add lots of protein and flavor without breaking the calorie bank in this satisfying salad. Baby spinach packs in the vitamins to make this meal one that’s not only delicious but so nutritious. You might even find yourself making extra ISOPASTA Rice from now on just to be able to throw this tasty treat together the next day! Best of all, this is an amazing meal to enjoy in our Isolator Fitness Meal Prep Containers.

Drink Recommendation: A crisp, clean Sauvignon Blanc will compliment this zesty salad well. Cheers!

10 Layer Taco Dip

10-LAYER TACO PENNE

Serves 8 

Everyone loves those sever-layer taco dips, so this is a great recipe to break out for a crowd using our amazing ISOPASTA Penne. With all those great nacho and taco flavors you love, this healthy, fiber-filled penne salad is also super high in protein. If you want to bump that protein up even more, make it 11-layers and add some shredded chicken!

Drink Recommendation: A Michelada would pair fantastically with this taco salad. Simply take your favorite low-carb lager, add a little hot sauce and a squeeze of lime, and enjoy. Cheers!

ROASTED BROCCOLI

Serves 6

 Roasted broccoli is such a simple but delicious side. I love to roast mine extra-long to get it deeply browned and slightly crunchy – I like to think of it as broccoli chips! As with all my roasted vegetable recipes, this takes beautifully to different seasonings, so feel free to experiment with your favorites. Make a big batch on Sunday so you have it to eat on salads and with our great ISOPASTA throughout your week. It will store very well in our Isolator Fitness Meal Prep Containers, too, to give you a vitamin-packed boost whenever you want it.

I hope you enjoy this delicious addition to your healthy ISO lifestyle!

DIJON ROASTED CAULIFLOWER

Serves 6 

Roasting vegetables is one of the first ways I got my kids to actually enjoy eating their veggies! Roasting brings out the natural sweetness in whatever vegetable you’re using and gives you amazing texture from the caramelization that happens at a higher temperature. You can use this technique with almost any vegetable, changing up the seasonings to suit your preference. The best part? This mouthwatering, vitamin-rich cauliflower is just as good cold from your Isolator Meal Prep Containers the next day – I actually snack on it for a healthy, low calorie, low fat, savory treat. Plus, it is a delicious, nutrition addition to any green salad. Roast up a big batch to use in so many different ways throughout your week!

I hope you enjoy this delicious addition to your healthy ISO lifestyle!

ISOPASTA FUSILLI NIÇOISE SALAD

Serves 6

Loaded with omega-3’s and protein, this low-carb salad is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Even better, it comes together so easily and stores incredibly well, making it a great meal prep option with our Isolator Fitness Meal Prep Containers. When glancing through these ingredients, don’t be thrown off by the anchovies! Lending a salty, not fishy flavor, these misunderstood little fish are absolute powerhouses of iron, calcium, and magnesium, and they go hand in hand with the tuna in this salad to promote strong bones and heart health. Make sure you get the best quality oil-packed tuna and anchovies you can find for this recipe – that oil will be the only oil you’ll need, so make it the good stuff!

BLUEBERRY BURST SMOOTHIE

BLUEBERRY BURST SMOOTHIE

Serves 1

I love starting my day with a smoothie, especially one that’s packed with protein and vitamins to fuel me through my morning.  My blueberry smoothie is high in protein, as well as fiber.  All the spinach, flax, chia, and hemp help provide lots of vitamins A, B, C, and E, too.  So, sip away in a healthy way!

I hope you enjoy this delicious addition to your healthy ISO lifestyle!
