If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been ramping up the meal prep friendly recipes lately. There are a couple of reasons for that: 1) Meal prep is generally just an awesome thing that makes life and eating healthy easier. 2) You guys all seem to love the meal prep recipes I’ve been sharing, according to comments and your pictures on Instagram. And 3) I’m gearing up the blog for something NEW and very exciting that’s coming later this summer. 😜 😎 😁  Stay tuned for more details and just know – it’s gonna be AWESOME.

For now, let’s talk specifically about these tofu taco meal prep bowls and how they couldn’t be easier.

How to Make Tofu Burrito Bowl Meal Prep

You crumble the tofu, you season it up, you sauté it for few minutes, and then you portion it into the container of your choice. Top with all of the best things – like avocado and onion and salsa. And that’s it. You’re done! We’re talking 15 minutes start to finish and your fridge is stocked with healthy lunches for the week. BOOM.

The best part about these “bowls?” You can turn them into tacos or wraps – even collard wraps to keep it light! You can eat them with tortilla chips. You can eat them a la Chipotle burrito bowl. This recipe is a spin-off of my breakfast tofu bowls, but completely different in terms of flavor. If you’re looking for a breakfast meal prep option though, I highly recommend it.

However you eat them, they’re 100% delicious and a great alternative to meat-based meal prep. No fussing with chicken, no cleaning up the mess, quicker to cook, and less expensive overall. And saving money is one of the main perks of meal prep, so it just makes sense. 💁

Notes

Sometimes I make a batch of quinoa or rice to go along with these bowls for extra carbs!

    This is great inspiration for me. I work from home and if I don’t have healthy meals ready in the fridge and I turn to the pantry—and that is dangerous. :)
