When you think of Mediterranean-style meals, lush, colorful, feel-good food is top of mind. As we finally dig our heels into a long-awaited spring and summer, this vibrancy is exactly what we’re craving, and exactly what this Power Hour celebrates.
In about two hours, you can meal prep a week of breakfasts, lunches, and dinners that are not only centered around the wholesome Mediterranean diet, but also rich with flavor and brightness. Most meals take advantage of seasonal produce favorites, such as asparagus, peas, radishes, and arugula — they’re sure to make you forget about the long months of winter behind you. Here’s how to tackle this meal prep plan.
This week’s shopping list is a mix of Mediterranean diet staples like fresh vegetables, whole grains, beans, and healthy fats. It assumes cooking basics like olive oil, salt, and pepper are already on hand.
