6 Items to Make Meal Prep Easier

Get Organized With the Right Tools

Weekly meal prep is a great way to make your week run smoothly. By cooking food in batches and portioning it out into daily servings, you can cut back on cooking time during the week and avoid spending money on takeout. 


When you live at Halsey Flats, you can grab all of the ingredients you need at Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods, both about a mile away. Then you’ll need just a handful of kitchen items to start prepping food in your newly remodeled kitchen!

Glass Storage Bowls

Glass storage bowls in different sizes with corresponding lids can be endlessly useful for meal prep, and they’re an environmentally conscious alternative to plasticware when packing up meals to go. Use them to store chopped ingredients or finished dishes.

Sheet Pans and Liners

Bake or roast a large number of items at once using a sheet pan, and wrap and freeze any food you won’t be using in your weekly meal plan. Make cleanup a snap by buying silicone pan liners that keep food from sticking to the pan and protect the pan from baked-on spills and stains. 

High-Quality Sharp Knives

A set of good knives makes meal prep much easier. At a minimum, make sure you have a paring knife and a cook or chef’s knife. Sharpen knives a few times a year to ensure they work well and to protect yourself from injury – dull knives can slip during cutting!

Cutting Board Set

With all the chopping and prep involved in bulk cooking, you’ll likely have use for more than one cutting board at a time. With a set including multiple sizes, you can designate certain boards for specific ingredients, like meat, vegetables, herbs, etc., and keep your cut-up ingredients close at hand until you’re ready for them.

Food Processor

A food processor is a real time-saver during meal prep. You can use it to chop, grind, puree, mix, shred, and blend. Chop as much garlic or onions as you want without tiring out your hands, or throw together a batch of hummus, guacamole, or scratch-made pasta sauce in minutes.
