Healthy meal prep lunches that are 400 calories or under, and will keep you feeling full! All calories calculated for you.
For many of us, meal prep lunches are all about sticking to our healthy eating goals: convenient healthy food that will keep us on track with our healthy eating goals.
But have you ever found a delicious looking meal prep recipe, only to find out it has over 650 calories per serving? I have. Yikes.
When I create a meal prep lunch recipe for this site, my goal is somewhere near 400 calories. I find that in this ballpark, you get the perfect intersection of a decent-sized portion that will actually fill you up, healthy grains, proteins, plenty of veggies, and you don’t need to sacrifice on flavor, either!
Today I’ve rounded up 18 of my favorite meal prep lunch recipes under 400 calories from around the web! And guess what? I’ve taken the guess work out of this for you and included the calorie count for each recipe.
Some of these are meal prep lunch recipes under 400 calories including rice/grains (I always include this in my calculations on my site), however some of these recipes do not include grains…in which case it is indicated.
Shall we check them out?
