Hey loves! Happy new year! As we are entering a new year I am really focusing on my overall wellness and what I’m eating is a huge part of that! Let’s prep some healthy, high-protein meals to get on the right track for 2024! I’m sharing three of my favorite recipes for a healthy meal prep as well as some other easy high protein ideas!

I love this recipe because it is packed with protein and tons of veggies and made with lots of yummy fresh ingredients! It’s also great because it’s so easy to throw the leftovers in the fridge and heat up a bowl for a fast lunch or on a really busy weeknight.


  • Chili powder
  • ground cumin
  • salt
  • pepper
  • oregano
  • paprika
  • lime juice
  • red onion
  • Peppers (whatever colors you prefer!)
  • fresh cilantro
  • 2 cups of chicken (3 or 4 breasts)
  • 28 oz of diced tomatoes (I personally like mine to be a little bit spicier so I like getting Rotel)
  • can of black beans
  • minced garlic
  • chicken broth 


  1. Chop all of your veggies
  2. Put your chopped veggies into pot and had a few spoonfuls of minced garlic and add in a little olive oil. Cook on medium to low heat until they’re slightly soft.
  3. Add in drained black beans, tomatoes, and pulled chicken.
  4. Add in chicken broth and seasonings (2 teaspoons of chili powder, teaspoon ground cumin, teaspoon of paprika, half a teaspoon dried oregano, some salt some and pepper)
  5. Add cilantro and the juice of a lime
  6. Stir and simmer on low to medium heat for at least 30 minutes.
  7. Top with sour cream, shredded cheese, or whatever you’d like!

One of our family favorite recipes! We make this every year for Christmas Eve.


  • ground beef (I like the meatloaf mix)
  • onion
  • egg
  • garlic
  • mustard
  • Worchester
  • breadcrumbs
  • basil
  • milk
  • garlic salt
  • parsley
  • pepper


  • 3 28 oz cans of tomato sauce
  • can of diced tomato
  • tomato paste
  • (Optional: one inch strips of pork)
  • red wine
  • garlic salt
  • parsley
  • Italian seasoning
  • basil
  • salt and pepper


  1. In a mixing bowl add the meatloaf mix and one egg
  2. Add in one small chopped onion, a heaping tablespoon of minced garlic and one cup of bread crumbs
  3. Add teaspoon of mustard, tablespoon of Worchester sauce, 2 tablespoons of milk
  4. Add 3 tablespoons parsley, some fresh chopped basil, teaspoon of garlic salt, teaspoon kosher salt and some fresh cracked pepper.
  5. Optional: add parmesan cheese for cheesy meatballs
  6. Then combine all these ingredients and roll them into 1 inch balls.
  7. Then in a large pot add olive oil and add two spoonfuls of minced garlic
  8. Add meatballs, cans of tomato sauce and diced tomatoes.
  9. Add pork strips if you decide!
  10. Add can of tomato paste and some red wine
  11. Add 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning, teaspoon of garlic salt, some fresh basil and a cup of Parmesan cheese
  12. Stir slowly so you don’t break up meatballs.
  13. Cover and simmer on low heat all night long to be slow cooked. If you are making this same day, brown meatballs in a separate pan and add to sauce.

This is a good recipe if you are looking for a lower carb option and add in more veggies!

  6. Add to peppers and top with another slice of cheese

Lunch + dinners:

  • These chicken power bowls are full of protein between the beans and the chicken and hummus and lots of yummy veggies.

  •  One-pan balsamic chicken and veggies.
  • Here is a white chili recipe I found on Pinterest that is very simple to make. I love serving ours with sour cream, shredded pepper jack cheese, and Tostitos scoops to dunk!

  • Turkey burgers and sweet potato fries. I love this healthy turkey burger recipe from Hint of Helen.
