The One Meal Prep Tool You Need

I swear I’m constantly looking up new meal prep ideas.

Something that I can make on Meal Prep Monday (or usually Sunday for me) and not have to cook lunch, sometimes dinner for the rest of the week.

I find all these delicious but pretty extensive recipes. Like, more like 4 ingredients.

I’ll pass.

The one meal I always come back to:

Chicken and broccoli.

I have been given plenty of strange looks when I tell people that’s what I eat for lunch EVERY DAY. But my husband has instilled in me something that makes total sense:

Eat for performance, not pleasure.

Though it sounds more for athletes, who wouldn’t want to look like they are as fit as a professional athlete? I’d love to!

Every once in a while, I’ll try a different prep, but this is always the easiest. And somehow I do not get tired of it!

I’ve made some changes over time, such as adding shredded cheese, as well as bacon-flavored ranch (OMG, yum!)

I’ve always tried a few different ways to cook the chicken. Boiled, baked, grilled.

My absolute favorite:

Grilled on my George Foreman.

It’s so funny, because all of my favorite kitchen utensils and equipment have been either birthday or Valentine’s Day gifts from my husband. We don’t do romantic gifts—he knows a new dining set or crock pot gets me excited 😝

It’s so, so simple to cook chicken this way.

Just trim the fat off and throw the chicken pieces on.

I don’t even season the meat.

The grill helps bring out the natural flavor of the chicken itself, so there is no need to add anything!

I can have a week’s worth of chicken cooked in approximately five minutes! That’s my favorite part.

Another aspect about these grills that I love is how easy they are to clean. Once the removable plates are cooled down, remove them and scrub. The gunk leftover is so easy to wash off, even if you are lazy and let it for a day or two 😲

Throw the chicken in a meal prep container along with some frozen broccoli and you’re good to go!


I usually have approximately 4 oz. of chicken and 1 serving size of broccoli. Plenty of much-needed protein, plus the many benefits from the broc.

Sometimes I’ll use green beans instead to switch it up, though I don’t add r anch to this mixture, doesn’t taste as great in my opinion.

My George Foreman has helped me stick with my meal plan, which is often the hardest part of losing weight. It can also be used for TONS of other meals! You can make breakfast foods, other lunch recipes, or entire dinner meals with this nifty grill. Grilled cheese, easy peasy!


I’ve always recommended it to friends and love hearing from them how awesome it is to cook on. Let me know if you have one and what you like to make with it—or if you’re new to meal prep and you are excited to try out this technique!
