Top Foods to Help with Meal Prep

Meal prep can be challenging, especially if you’re a beginner. Where do you even start? Do you have to go grocery shopping every day to get the nutrients you need? How long will it take? 

Relax. It’s not that hard! And, it’s even easier when you have help. Netrition has all kinds of foods that can help you with meal prep. Here are just a few of them.

Protein and Keto Bread, Wraps, and More

Did you know that gathering the ingredients for sandwiches counts as meal prep? It does. And did you know that sandwiches and wraps can be keto? They can! Netrition has Protein and Low-Carb Sliced Bread, Wraps, Flatbread, Bagels, English Muffins, and more

Some fillings to put on them may include eggs for a breakfast wrap, cream cheese on Low-Carb Bagels, and cheese, chicken breast, tuna, and chopped vegetables on Keto Bread and Wraps. Almond Butter, Peanut Butter in a variety of flavors, and Avocado Mayo can also be good to have on hand. 

Baking Mixes 

Freshly made baked goods and pancakes can be delightful, but they’re usually high-carb. With Keto Baking and Pancake Mixes, you can have low-carb pancakes, waffles, muffins, and breads ready to eat within minutes. Be sure to check out our collection of Sugar-Free Syrups for your pancakes and waffles, and stock up on Nuts and Sunflower Seedz to mix into the batter or top your pancakes.

Salad Ingredients

Salads are quick and easy, and you can have a high-protein, low-carb, delicious salad in minutes with a few helper foods. Shrewd Food Croutons, Protein Crisps, Protein Chips, and Protein Crackers all add crunch without carbs. You can toss Nuts and Sunflower Seedz into your salad for healthy fats. Add some cooked chicken or canned tuna, and you’re good to go!

Sugar-Free Sauce

If you are cooking chicken breast, fish, shrimp, tofu, or another lean protein, as well as vegetables, Sugar-Free Sauces can make your job easier. Sugar-Free Barbecue Sauces, Hot Sauce, Teriyaki Sauce, Pasta Sauce, and Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce can all add flavor without an excess of carbs.

Low-Carb Pasta and Rice

Pasta and rice are most definitely on a keto menu when you choose low-carb ones. Our options can help with food prep because they’re always ready to be used. Just rinse low-calorie Shirataki Noodles and Rice before adding them to your favorite recipe, or cook Protein Pasta by boiling it before tossing it with sauce or using it in a casserole.

Instant Entrees

Sometimes meal prep is more about having the right foods in the house than about spending time in the kitchen. You can always opt for an Instant Entree, such as Vegan Chicken Curry, Zesty Vegetable Chili with Beans, or Lentil Stew. 

Protein Bars and Shakes

Do these count as foods to help with meal prep? We think so, and here’s why. When you have these around, you’ll never have to depend on the convenience store or the vending machine again. You can always have a small, low-carb meal with a lot of protein when you keep some Low-Carb and Keto Protein Bars or Shakes on hand. They may just be enough to get you home to eat that healthy meal you’d prepared beforehand!

Meal prep is key to making sure you have healthy foods available when you need them. To get started, it helps to have low-carb and high-protein ingredients and options around so that you can put a meal together when you have time. Netrition is there to support your meal prep and other healthy behaviors to stay on your keto or weight loss plan.
