One way to Meal Prep
Get good at this version and then you can adapt it to your particular lifestyle once you get rolling.
If you are making food just for yourself, instead of cooking 4 ounces of chicken cook 16 ounces of chicken. Now, you have four 4 ounce portions of chicken to use in future meals. Once the chicken is cooked, bag it, tag it and freeze it.
If you do this 1-2 times per week with different foods, you will be stocked. You will be able to grab any combination of food and assemble them quickly. Talk about a time saver during the week!
Plus if you have picky eaters in your house, you can grab different foods that are already pre-portioned, put them on a plate and heat them up.
Everyone can have what they want. Win—win!
