Fall Meal Prep – Watch Me As I Meal Prep For The Week

You asked, I listened. A new seasonal meal prep is finally here! It’s filled with hearty ingredients like sweet potato and kale and delicious fall flavors like apple, cinnamon and pumpkin.

This is the last video in my seasonal meal prep series. If you haven’t watched my previous meal prep videos, take a peek through the links below. I’ll walk you through the process of how to prep ingredients for easy, mix-and-match meal ideas for the week.

In today’s video I’ll show you how to meal prep 11 ingredients and give you a few ideas for nourishing, fall meals that you can quickly put together. But with the creativity in this community, I’m sure you’ll find new, delicious ways to mix these ingredients. When you do, make sure to tag me on Instagram so I can see your creation. Now let’s dive in.

Fall Meal Prep Recipes

These ingredients can be combined in numerous ways, but today I’m sharing several meal ideas and recipes that I’ve made from these ingredients, including:

There are two items that require the oven, the roasted sweet potatoes and bacon. You could do one sheet pan of each at the same time (just cook at 425F and remove the bacon sooner). Or do two sheet pans of each, back-to-back, for a larger quantity.

The best multi-tasking happens when you’ve got one item in the oven because then you can use the stovetop or counter to prep another item. But remember, you don’t need to do everything you see on this meal prep. Pick and choose or combine with ideas from the other meal prep videos.

  1. Great ideas! Thanks for sharing

  2. Thank you! Any chance you can make a Paleo/dairy-free version of caramel covered apples since they’re in season? This meal prep is very helpful.

  3. Hi Lisa. Thanks for the video. For people who are allergic to almonds, which kind of gluten-free flour would you recommend as a substitute? Especially for in the pancakes in this video, but also in other treats.

  4. I wish the PDF included a shopping list to make it easier to execute this meal plan :(

    • Hi Mary – I completely understand! I wasn’t able to make it for the past few meal preps, but I will be sure to include something like this for future ones :)

  5. The pumpkin mousse and veg hummus were so simple and tasty.  Next time I’m going to double the batch.

    • Hi Hillary – So glad you loved those two recipes! Definitely simple meals to keep on hand :)

    • Hi Lisa,
      I do enjoy your website, you are obviously a perfectionist as everything is so well thought out and tested.
      I would like to know how long it would be safe to keep cooked chicken refrigerated. A relative of mine who is a microbiologist said not more than a day! I was also taught that keeping veges cut or cooked you straight away lose nutritional value.
      Another thing I would appreciate your thoughts on is whether Olive oil changes when frying.

      • Hi Eleanor – according to online food safety sites, you can keep cooked chicken in the fridge for 3-4 days safely. Veggies start to lose nutritional value the moment they’re picked. Which, by the time they reach the market can actually be weeks. You may lose a smidge more meal prepping, but if the convenience of the meal prepped veggies saves you from eating something unhealthy, I’m completely okay with that. It’s still better than the alternative. And olive oil isn’t as high-heat stable as avocado oil or coconut oil, but it’s more stable than previously thought. I prefer to fry with avocado oil, just to be safe.

  6. Lisa, very interesting video! and I want to cook all of your recipes! Your video is amazing: fast, precise and full of interesting content! Bravo!

  7. Loved this meal prep, Lisa! Thank you! :-)

  8. Can’t wait to watch the video! Thank you Lisa, enjoy your week-end!

  9. Would love to see even more meal prep videos! These are SO helpful! I had some kale in the fridge that I needed to use up ;) Thank you!

  10. Hi Lisa, 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻  well done! 
    I am so excited to dive in and begin prepping,   Thank you 🙏 
    You are SO polite in you’re bloopers and not one curse word to boot 🤪😆
    You deserve more than a weekend off, but whatever the timeframe enjoy your weekend away with your mom 😘

    A truly heartfelt 💝 thank you again for ALL the TLC that you put into making our lives easier and healthier.

    Cheers!
