Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese

Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese

Sticking to a healthy diet does not have to mean living a life without mac and cheese! We asked our culinary team to create a rich and creamy macaroni and cheese casserole that would taste as good as the original, but wouldn’t wreck your diet… and it had to be something kids would love to eat. What they came up with was even more delicious than we imagined. It has less than 300 calories per serving and 15 grams of protein! The recipe makes 10 servings, so it can feed a hungry family or make several servings for healthy meal prep.

Roasted Fennel and Farro Salad

Roasted Fennel and Farro Salad

This jewel-toned side dish will have everyone talking. The nutty farro, fennel, and bell peppers get sweeter with roasting, the briny notes of Kalamata olives add depth, and the texture is heightened by the juicy pomegranate seeds. The Mediterranean dish is pretty and hearty enough to be the centerpiece of a meal, or pair it with roast chicken, turkey, or fish for a dinner that makes any night a special occasion.

Buffet-Style Meal Prep for Any Calorie Level

Buffet-Style Meal Prep for Any Calorie Level

No time for a whole week of meal prep? Try this buffet-style approach to meal prep with simple ingredients that can be mixed and matched to create a variety of meals.

Beachbody's Social Media Manager and meal prep maven Amanda Meixner enjoyed the last buffet-style meal prep so much, she did it again! Instead of planning all of her breakfasts, lunches, and dinners for the week, she prepared a selection of her favourite ingredients and then chose different combinations of those foods at each meal. 

Black Bean Salad

Black Bean Salad

Corn, black beans, red bell pepper, and cilantro become best friends in this super-simple salad. Fresh lime juice ties everything together as a bright, citrus dressing that adds almost no calories. It can be eaten right away, but tastes even better after chilling for an hour or two.  This colourful salad has only 5 ingredients and takes less than 5 minutes to prepare. It makes enough servings for a week of delicious side dishes or snacks, so it’s terrific for meal prep.

Simplified Buffet-Style Meal Prep for Any Calorie Level

This week, Social Media Manager Amanda Meixner  was short on time when it came to her usual Sunday meal prep session. Rather than skip it altogether (what would she eat?), she modified her routine to make it much faster. Instead of planning all of her breakfasts, lunches, and dinners for the week, she prepared simple foods that could be mixed and matched to create a variety of meals. Genius.

Spinach Salad with Quinoa, Chickpeas, and Paprika Dressing

Spinach Salad with Quinoa, Chickpeas, and Paprika Dressing

This colourful salad is a show-stopper. Make it for your next potluck or picnic, or amaze your family for dinner any night of the week. The recipe makes 12 portions, and you’re going to want to eat them all. Even after it’s dressed, this salad stores well for up to three days. Quinoa and chickpeas give it a hearty serving of protein. We love the juicy tomatoes and cucumber, but the stars of the recipe are the piquant paprika dressing and the full cup of torn mint leaves. We think once you taste this salad, you’ll want to add mint to all of your salads.
