Wellness Mama » Blog » Health » Simple Batch Cooking Meal Plan

As a busy mom, I sometimes feel like I spend hours in the kitchen each day and that I finish cleaning up from one meal just in time to prepare the next.

I’ve learned that a little careful meal planning can greatly reduce the amount of time I spend figuring out what to cook and buy at the store. Plus, it’s saved a lot of time in the kitchen!

Here’s how I’ve started batch cooking on the weekends so I spend less time on dinner during the week. Here’s how you can do the same.

What Is Batch Cooking?

The idea of batch cooking is as simple as the name suggests: it’s just doing a week’s worth of meal prep in one go, so that serving individual meals does not take as long to prepare.

I prefer to do a big batch of meal prep on Saturdays, when the kids are happily playing in the back yard with friends and I have a few hours to spare.

In addition to saving time, I’ve found that batch cooking really increases the chances of sticking to a meal plan. You definitely won’t want to waste those healthy meals you spent time preparing!

Note: I did not include breakfast on this list, since we have a simple 4-day rotating breakfast meal plan that involves various proteins and vegetables and I make those each day.

Batch Cooking Meal Plan Menu

Batch cooking takes a little trial and error to get used to, but once you give a try, you’ll love the time you save and the simplicity. Here’s a sample meal plan to get you started!

Day 1

Lunch: Chicken salad over lettuce with carrot sticks
Dinner: Shrimp stir-fry

Day 2

Lunch: Leftover stir fry wrapped in romaine leaves
Dinner: Sliced chicken breast served with sliced peppers, onions, and baked butternut squash, reheated on a greased cookie sheet. Serve with a salad.

Day 3

Lunch: Reheat leftover chicken from last night, wrapped in romaine leaves and served with avocado and cilantro.
Dinner: Chili with sour cream and cheese (both optional) with a side salad

Day 4

Lunch: Leftover chili
Dinner: Eggplant pizza with a side salad

Day 5

Lunch: Leftover eggplant pizza or chicken salad
Dinner: Fajita salad

Day 6

Lunch: Fajita tacos (using leftover fajita meat) wrapped in romaine with avocado, salsa, cheese and sour cream
Dinner: Reheated meatballs and salad

Day 7

Lunch: Tuna salad on spinach or carrot sticks.
Dinner: Whatever is leftover!


When you’re in need of a quick snack, reach for one of these ready-to-eat nibblers:

  • Nuts
  • Deviled eggs
  • Sliced cucumber, celery sticks or carrot sticks with cream cheese or a healthy hummus
  • Tuna salad
  • Fruit

Batch Cooking Shopping List

This grocery store shopping list will give you a rough idea of what to buy for a week. Adjust as necessary. It is designed for two people, so just double (or triple or quadruple) depending on family size.


  • 2 avocados
  • 2 heads romaine lettuce, kale, or other greens
  • 1 big bag spinach
  • 4 large sweet peppers, any color
  • 1-3 lb bag onions
  • Fruit, like berries or grapes
  • 2 zucchini or summer squash
  • 1 bag carrot sticks
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1 large eggplant
  • 1 butternut squash
  • Cilantro


  • 2-3 dozen eggs
  • 1 lb butter
  • 1 container (8 oz or bigger) of full-fat, plain organic yogurt (either Greek or regular)
  • 1 package cream cheese
  • 1 block of your favorite cheese (this is optional on everything, so just get what you want)
  • Sour cream (optional)

(If you’re wondering where I draw the line on dairy, see this post.)


Canned Food:

  • 1 can (organic) diced tomatoes
  • 1 BIG (15 oz or bigger) can of tomato sauce
  • 1 can salmon or 2 cans tuna
  • 1 jar of pasta sauce (check ingredients, no added sugar or grains)
  • 1 jar salsa (check ingredients)



  • 1 lb frozen shrimp (or fresh, just pre-cooked)
  • 1 package bacon (optional)
  • 2 lbs ground beef or turkey
  • 5 chicken breasts or boneless thighs (any grass fed meat I can’t get from our local butcher I purchase online from trusted sources

Frozen Aisle:

  • 2 (1 lb) bags frozen broccoli

Batch Cooking: Prep Day Instructions

It will simplify your life tremendously (and make it easier to stick to a healthy eating lifestyle) if you can pre-cook your family meals in one or two big batches. I try to prep everything on Saturday so it is ready for the week, but you can do simple ingredient prep first and save meal assembly for later.

Single-Step Prep:

  1. Cover the chicken breasts in butter and spices and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Cube two of them and slice three.
  2. Hard boil 6-8 eggs (per egg eater in family).
  3. Pre-cut zucchini, squash, onions, peppers, cucumbers, and other veggies. Store in separate containers or bags.
  4. Cut the butternut squash in half and discard the seeds. Cover in 1-2 tablespoons of butter and spices. Bake open side up on a cookie sheet at 325 degrees until soft (usually about 45 minutes). Store in foil for re-heating.
  5. Peel the eggplant and cut into ½ inch slices. Cook on a greased cookie sheet at 375 degrees until well browned on both sides.
  6. Make the salmon or tuna salad by mixing well-drained fish with ½ package of cream cheese and spices like dill. Store closed in fridge.

Meal Assembly:

  1. Shrimp Stir Fry. Heat butter in a skillet and add 1 pre-cut onion and 1 pre-cut pepper, cook 2 mins. Add pre-cut zucchini or squash and cook 2 mins. Add 1 lb frozen broccoli, cook 2 mins. Add frozen shrimp and cook until veggies are tender and shrimp is heated. Add desired spices (garlic, basil, salt, pepper, etc). Right before eating, add ½ package of cream cheese and stir until melted (optional). Here is the full recipe.
  2. Chicken Salad. Use part of the cubed roasted chicken and combine following this recipe. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
  3. Chili. Combine 1 pound of the ground meat with 1 can diced tomatoes, ½ can tomato sauce, 1 chopped onion, cumin, and other spices to taste. Find the recipe here.
  4. Eggplant Pizza. Top the cooked eggplant slices with a small amount of tomato sauce, spices, cheese, chopped onions, peppers, or whatever other toppings you like. Store in foil to re-heat. This is also fast to make fresh if you don’t want to make it ahead! So simple I don’t have a recipe for it!
  5. Meatballs. Roll up the meatballs using 1 pound ground meat, Parmesan, garlic, basil, or whatever you prefer. You can also try these Greek meatballs. Bake for about 30 minutes at 350, then coat in pasta sauce. Store covered in the fridge.
  6. Fajita Salad. This one you can prep right before you eat! Heat your remaining sliced chicken breast with remaining sliced onions and peppers in a greased skillet. Season with cumin and serve over greens with avocado, salsa, cheese, and sour cream (optional). Save the recipe to use again and again here.
  7. Deviled Eggs. Carefully slice the hard boil eggs lengthwise and remove the yolks. Mash the yolks with ½ an avocado and season with mustard, dill, or other spices to taste. Scoop the filling back into the eggs and top with bacon crumbles (optional). You can also follow this easy deviled eggs recipe.

Note: The above meal plan is great for any time of year, but I recommend sticking to whatever is in season whenever possible. I talk about my seasonal meal plans in this podcast.

How to Customize Your Batch Cooking Meal Plan

The sample meal plan menu above has worked great for me, but you might not be a fan of all of those options. In that case, you can always customize to create a meal plan you’re excited about! The more you enjoy the meals you’re making, the more likely you are to stick to the plan.

Here are a few other ideas for batch cooking for those busy weeknights:

  • Make use of your slow cooker or pressure cooker. You can set these up the night before, or have dinner ready super quick in the pressure cooker. Try adding this chuck roast or meatloaf to the rotation! You can also check out these freezer-friendly slow cooker recipes. (If you haven’t tried an Instant Pot yet, you should!… I give my full review here.
  • Grab a bunch of sweet potatoes. Roast them ahead of time, and then you can slice them for breakfast, stuff them with avocado, of even whip up this sweet potato casserole.
  • Grab a head of cauliflower. This is another great versatile veggie perfect for meal prepping. Pulse it into cauliflower rice, or roast it in spices ahead of time.
  • Get basil and make pesto. It only lasts a few days in the fridge, but it makes a great accompaniment to whatever you’re cooking up. This is my basil pesto recipe and I also make pesto with cilantro. Bonus, as a pesto these herbs lasts for up to two weeks without going bad, unlike fresh herbs on their own which only stay fresh a few days in the produce drawer.
  • Make (and freeze) a big batch of pasta sauce. It’s great for veggie pizzas. You can also use up some ground meat by making it into a bolognese! Get my homemade pasta sauce recipe here.
  • Got a hodgepodge of food leftover? Make burrito bowls with cauliflower rice, meat, avocado, cilantro, or whatever you have on hand.
  • Make grain-free paleo muffins! They’re great to have on hand for breakfast, as a snack, dessert, or even as a side dish. I make these grain-free apple cinnamon muffins regularly as well.

Cookbooks That Help

A good cookbook is worth its weight in gold. I use a combination of the following for batch cooking:

  • The Wellness Mama Cookbook: These are my best 30 minute, 1 pan meals!
  • Cook Once, Eat All Week: I love these recipes. It gives adaptations for grain free, gluten free, or dairy free diets and has shopping lists and step by step prep lists that my husband or kids can follow. (Have kids take the Kids Cook Real Food e-course first for knife skills, etc.) Tip: I usually double the veggies called for when I use this cookbook.
  • Real Plans: This app takes the place of my cookbooks most weeks, since it contains all of my recipes and other healthy recipes from some of the bloggers and chefs I love most.

I’ve found batch cooking to save me hours of time each week. If you’re as busy as I am (or even if you’re not but still want to save time!), I definitely recommend giving meal planning and bulk cooking a try! It can help save those busy nights where you still want to eat as a family together!

Also try my batch cooking meal plan for vacation!

    confusing all this info because just like you are preaching “grains are bad mmkay” tons of other sites preach “dairy is bad mmkay” so just who the hell are we supposed to listen to?? If we dump both grains AND dairy what are we left with? Basically a bunch of plants trees n bushes that the earth gave us so maybe that’s all we’re meant to live off?

    You use FULL FAT yogurt, tons of cheese too. This is all as processed as anything else and is surely bad???

    On another note, 100gms of carbs per day? If I’m a bodybuilder trying to gain weight I am looking at close to 100gms of carbs PER MEAL! OR is that all wrong? Can I consume this diet whilst weight training 3x a week and still pile on the muscle? SO much contradicting info on the net these days no one seems to know the actual truth!

      There’s definitely a lot of info out there and part of it is finding what specifically works best for you. That being said, most people benefit tremendously from removing grains (and dairy sometimes) and replacing it with vegetables, fruits and starches like sweet potatoes. Basically, meat and vegetables are much higher in nutrient and when partnered with healthy fats (like quality coconut oil) can be great. If you are a body builder, I’d actually suggest something like the Leangains protocol (Google it) or something similar to a higher carb paleo diet since you’re putting some stress on your body with training (a good kind) and need all the repair ability possible. If you are doing cardio or intense training, things like sweet potatoes, squash and fruit are great for helping refuel glycogen. Good luck!

    Wellness Mama, when I hear chicken salad, I think of chicken chunks with mayo dressing.  You use cream cheese.  Are you anti-mayo? Do you think mayo is bad? Or Do you just have a taste for cream cheese over mayo?

      I am anti store bought mayo because of the vegetable oils and homemade mayo is time consuming and some people don’t like it so that is an alternative 🙂

    Could you please explain “1 BIG (15 oz or bigger) can of tomato sauce”?  Is that juice?  Or like a pasta sauce?  I should explain… “tomato sauce” where we come from is like a brown sauce… added to a meal as a condiment.Thanks.

    I thought nuts were high in phytates, so why do you approve of them?

    1. Wellness Mama Avatar
      Wellness Mama

      They are, and I’ve written before about how I soak and dry them to minimize this, but they don’t have the more harmful lectins in them and in moderation, I feel, are ok. We definitely don’t consume daily but they can be made into great flour substitutes…

    Hey, What if you made your own bread? Is this possible where you can control the ingredients?

      Wellness Mama

      Unfortunately, even with the extremely long process of using heirloom wheat, then soaking, sprouting and fermenting, you’ll still be dealing with lectins and anti-nutrients which many of us just can’t handle, plus there is no biological need for them. Definitely the best option if you’re going to eat it, but still not good…

    This sounds great but I’m concerned about the cost of this diet. Do you have any tips for cutting cost while avoiding grains? I unfortunately find that grains are a cheap way to get full and I’m a college student so cheapness is unfortunately a priority

    1. Joanne Avatar

       The one thing I find very expensive is the coconut and almond flour. I was told that Trader Joe’s is less expensive. Not sure if you have one around….I am enjoying most of the meals except the meatballs I baked them and they came out like rubber. I would cut the recipe in half if you are alone for the meals….I feel so much better just being off of wheat for a month. I was getting sick so much. When I look back at how much white flour I ate because it was quick and easy. Now I have energy to make meals. This plan makes a lot of food. Maybe you could cut things in half and/or freeze it. The chile is excellent and the chicken salad wrapped in romaine. Making the stir fry tonight. Good luck and hope you can find a way to get away from grains.

      In reply to someone who was struggling financially, without commenting on specific ingredients, here is the best advice I can give:

      I find that I really struggle if I am short of time and money. However, if I don’t have money but do have time, then the possibilities open up extensively. Try to set aside a little time, even if you are short on both, since once you set up ‘systems’ to manage, you will become faster at implicating them. They will become second nature. It is worth the initial ‘time outlay’ for some.
      1. Always price compare – you would be amazed how much you can save sometimes by buying a few ingredients elsewhere. If you are struggling to to work out whether something is cheaper then looking at the price per kg/ml etc is an accurate indicator. If you can do this on foot then do – remember that fuel is expensive. A suitcase on wheels is a great answer to a taxi/car or buying a ‘granny’ trolley.
      2. Try to shop (or return) at the end of the day when reductions are prominent. Don’t be afraid to ask if they will knock off more. Sometimes they are just about to do another round of reductions.
      3. Make sure you have adequate freezer space. This means that you can cook in bulk when you feel like it and have meals ready saving time and money. Also, when there is a deal you can freeze a few extra packs of whatever saving you cash another week. Remember that buying frozen can be cheaper than fresh. There may be some health/quality implications here, however, you have to assess this on an individual product level. Look at what is the best for you.
      4. Grow anything you can. If you use a lot of salad then try growing some. Start small if you are not comfortable with a whole salad range!. You don’t have to grow everything at once! There are some amazingly inventive ways posted on the internet to grow in flats and small spaces.
      5. Make your own if possible. Almond flour and nut butters for example are incredibly simple to make at home. Mayonnaise is so cheap and easy when compared to some of the shop bought. Plus having control over ingredients is a massive benefit. Research every product that you use regularly to find out how it is made and whether it would be beneficial to make it yourself. Some benefits may only be health ones and not financial but many will be both. Some may not be worth the time to you.
      6. Use the internet!. Don’t pay for advice (books etc) when so many people are offering it for free Look on the internet for alternatives, cheap recipes, suggestions and advice. The internet is an amazing wealth of knowledge in the form of articles and blogs, which will help you in many aspects of saving money. You can learn almost any skill with the help of the internet too. Health foods and supplements are often much cheaper from online shops. Don’t forget to check that you are buying from a reputable source however!
      7. Be creative. As suggested in tip 1 – a suitcase on wheels makes for a great alternative to buying a trolley or using a taxi or car. Can you hitch a lift with a friend? Do you go past a store every day and yet return with a car once a week to shop? (you could bring a few items home daily instead and only return once a fortnight with the car) Could you pop in on your way home for reductions somewhere? Can you plan your route better to save time and money? Do you have anyone you can share bulk purchases with? Buying in larger quantities can work out cheaper but the initial outlay is just too much sometimes. Do you have anyone you can share the cost with so you both benefit? Are there times when you could be researching on the internet like when sat on a bus or train? Make the most of your time. Think about how by working things differently you could get more out of your day.
      8. BE REALISTIC. My most important point I think. Will doing a weekly food preparation session benefit you for time so that you can spend more time looking for better deals money wise? Or time doing whatever to benefit you? I tried doing weekly food preparations because I wanted to be that ‘super organised healthy’ person but I found that I just wasted the food instead. I have to eat what I fancy that day so personally I can only prepare on a daily/next day basis. I felt disappointed when I finally realised that no matter how hard I tried, it just wasn’t for me. I felt like a failure! Which, looking back, is ridiculous! I should have been happy that I stopped wasting food and stressing myself out.

      My point here is that in order to save time and money, you have to be honest with what sort of person that you are and work your life accordingly. It is very tempting to read other people blogs, see the happy colourful pictures, assume that they have life all worked out and want to join the ranks of superwoman/man (lets not be sexist) in blogland. However we all individual. It is too easy to feel guilty nowadays. Assess your situation. Be realistic about what you can and cannot do or afford. Just because you think one blog has amazing recipes doesn’t mean that you have to sign up full time to their kind of lifestyle. Cherry pick the best. Apply systems only if they are relevant and will improve your life. Make your time and money work FOR YOU

      P.s Don’t forget to save your jars! Wash them out and reuse them. There are some great things that you can re use them for plus they look much prettier than plastic. World lables has many free label templates that you can use. Also, you are helping the environment. If you don’t want to use them then save and donate to others that do. I always want jars but barr asking friends, I can’t find any strangers on freecycle (I’m from the UK) that will ever donate in my town. I find this incredibly frustrating since I want baby food jars which none of my friends have as waste products. I know that many unwanted jars are going into landfills or recycling daily . . . and I need them. What a silly situation eh?!

    Thanks, I’m trying no grains and went shopping and got all the ingredients for the seven day meal plan. I love the chicken salad anJd chile. Even tried the biscuit recipe but used almond flour instead about 1 1/2 cups. They needed something so I sprinkled onion powder and garlic on them. Then spread a thin layer of yogurt on them. My husband took them with the chile for lunch. The calorie intake is about 132 per biscuit. Would the biscuit and chile be to much protein at once? Almond flour, eggs butter?
    I am so happy a friend posted the link on grains

    I love these ideas and did a grain-free diet for a couple of months last year. I watched excess weight fall off andd I was feeling great!   However, it is very difficult to stick with anythng strict when I am having to prepare two separate meals every day,as my DH is an extremely picky eater and is allergic to coconut.  The added expense and the extra effort of preparing two meals at one time is overwhelming.

    Thank you so much for sharing so much wonderful information! My husband and I eat very similarly and have been for about 5 years now. I have overcome MANY health problems from changing my diet like you explain. I do have a question, though. My midwife is a nutritionist and she told me that I shouldn’t eat anything but fruit in the morning because the body is coming off of the night’s fast. She said that the morning is when your body is rebuilding from the cleanse of the night, so we should eat fruit because it’s the easiest to digest and won’t disturb the “rebuilding”. I would love to know your thoughts on this! If you don’t mind sharing?
    Also, on a little side note… my husband has a hard time with sour cream (and we mostly eat raw milk dairy products) and we have found that yogurt is a wonderful substitute for sour cream! I have heard of other people not handling sour cream well, so I thought I would share this info. since it was so helpful for us!

    In August 2011, I got sick with colitis, which I have had on and off since my mid twenties.  I was told about the specific carbohydrate diet, which is also a NO GRAIN diet.  I have been on this diet since mid August.  I don’t miss the grains, but I seem to get extremely tired.  I had cancer in 2002 and went through treatment and experienced this very same extreme tiredness that I seem to be having on and off on this diet.  I would appreciate in recommendations on what or how I should eat on this diet, so I can overcome this crash of energy.

      Hi, hope you don’t mind me butting in… but I just read this and thought I would mention the book The Maker’s Diet. Have you heard of it? It is a 40 diet plan that heals the colon/intestines and digestive tract and has been known to help cure IBS, Crone’s Disease, and other serious diseases. I know people who have done it and have been completely transformed. He gives food and recipe ideas for you too. Hope this is helpful!

      If you are trying to stick to a low-carb type diet, it certainly be
      tough without using any kind of animal sources of protein. Eggs are
      awesome, but unless you are eating them for every meal, you will have
      to make some conscious efforts to get enough proteins and fats. I’d
      still recommend avoiding the grains and legumes, though you might
      need some starchy vegetables just for the density. Try using
      something like to track your food intake and see how much
      protein/fat you are getting. Ideally, you want total carbs around 100
      grams a day (less if you are trying to lose weight) which will be
      difficult without the meats. Coconut products, especially the oil,
      are a great source of the saturated fats you aren’t getting from the
      animal fats, so try adding some coconut oil or some kind of coconut
      in for at least a couple meals a day.
      Hope that helps some!

        Hi! I have really enjoyed reading the information on your blog. I love the meal plan and just have one concern about your carbs recommendation in your above comment. Your brain can only use glucose as a fuel and therefore you should get at least 130 carbs a day. The brain cannot use protein or fat for fuel.

        1. Cheryce Avatar

          Hi Jean–that isn’t true. In the absence of carbs (the glucose they covert to, rather), your body can and will use fat and protein as fuel. Carbs are the body’s preferred fuel source and when they are present, will be burned first. The second choice is fat. In the absence of carbs, our bodies will burn fat next, followed by protein.

          For this reason, short, quick burst exercises are not effective for people consuming lots of carbs, as the body will burn them first and isn’t going long enough to burn through them and into the fat we really want to lose. So for people who want to burn off the fat, but do so in short, quick burst exercise, like Tabats, a diet lower in carbs is really ideal. However, if longer, endurance type exercises are your thing, then having a higher amount of carbs works fine because you’re moving long enough that your body taps into your fat reserves.

          I hope that is helpful. 🙂 Avocados and Coconut are an amazing source of healthy fats and I would recommend them over nuts.

          Good luck with whatever your goal is!

      Jean…Have you ever tried using Tempeh as a substitute in traditional meat dishes? It is a nicely textured fermented soy product (so very healthy) and is really tasty in most dishes, ie the stir fry.

    This looks FANTASTIC. Can’t wait to try! I’ve never seen cream cheese in a stir-fry before…does it just add “body” or more flavor to the ingredients?

    1. Wellness Mama Avatar

      Just adds more flavor and makes it more rich… it does add a little
      body, but not much.

      1. Dani Lee Avatar

        wow…I tried this one, the stir fry shrimp and cream cheese. Its the very first one we tried…..”we” meaning I and the rest were all kids….picky little eaters, and all of them loved it, so did I . I was scared to try this dish at first and it was a lovely surprise once I did try it. I didn’t know you could make a stir fry with no noodles that actually fills you up!…we could hardly eat our ice cream after! I am not kidding!
