How to start meal prepping
Preparing your breakfast, lunches, dinners, and snacks days ahead of time is one of the best ways to save yourself some time and stress throughout the week. If you’re new to meal prepping, use these tips before you start cooking:
- Decide which meals or snacks you want to prepare BEFORE you start. Make a list of all the ingredients you’ll need first, then go shopping.
- Tackle meal prep on one day of the week. Sunday is a great day for meal prep because then everything is ready for the week ahead.
- Invest in some airtight, microwave-safe, and dishwasher-safe containers.
- When meal prepping lunches and dinners, make the protein source a priority. This can be anything from steak to chicken to salmon, or tofu and beans if you’re vegetarian. A high-protein meal will keep you fuller longer and help you stick to your goals!
Keto steak meal prep ingredients
- Steak tips – Steak tips (or “sirloin tips”) are usually cut from the tenderloin, round, or sirloin. If you’d like to save time, simply use some leftover steak you already have in the fridge and cut it into bite-sized pieces.
- Cauliflower rice – This low carb and keto-friendly alternative to regular white or brown rice is so delicious and full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. You can make your own homemade cauliflower rice or buy it frozen to keep the process quick and easy.
- Kale – Kale isn’t just for salads! This leafy green is bursting with vitamins and minerals and gives this meal prep bowl gorgeous pops of green. It’s cooked and wilted with cauliflower rice and bell peppers.
- Red bell pepper – Any color of bell pepper will work in this recipe. I like to use red bell peppers because they give the bowl more color and taste delicious when cooked.
- Lemon juice and parsley – To give the cooked cauliflower rice added brightness.
How to make easy keto steak meal prep bowls
Turn to this easy keto meal prep when you’re out of ideas! It’s easy to prepare, low carb, and full of nutrients. This recipe makes enough for 3 servings, so you won’t have to worry about making your lunch for at least a few days:
Step 1: Season the steak tips with sea salt and pepper.
Step 2: Heat some oil in a large skillet and cook the steak tips to your liking. Once they’re cooked through, transfer them to a plate and cover with foil.
Step 3: Next, add the cauliflower rice, kale, and red pepper to a saucepan. Cover with water, place the lid on top, and cook on medium low heat. When the vegetables are soft and the water has been absorbed, stir in the salt, pepper, paprika, parsley, and lemon juice.
Step 4: Scoop the cauliflower rice and vegetables into 3 meal prep containers and top each one with the steak tips. Garnish with a slice of lemon and parsley, then store the containers in the fridge until it’s time to eat.
Tips and variations
- Instead of cauliflower rice – Use any kind of grain you like, such as rice or quinoa, or top the steak over a green salad instead.
- Instead of steak – Top the cauliflower rice with this light and keto-friendly Mediterranean salmon.
- Season the steak – With even more flavor using homemade herb salt!
- Extra protein – Add chickpeas, broccoli, shrimp, potatoes, or squash to make each bite extra filling.
Storing and reheating
To store, keep the airtight containers in the fridge for up to 3 days.
To reheat, place a meal prep bowl in the microwave and heat for 1 or 2 minutes, or until the rice and steak are warmed through.
