Meal-prepping a week's worth of lunches doesn't need to take hours in the kitchen. These Greek-inspired meal-prep bowls can be prepared in just 10 minutes and only require 4 ingredients--greens, falafel, tabbouleh and tzatziki. We love going to our local specialty grocery store for fast shortcut ingredients like these. The high-fiber falafel and tabbouleh will help to keep you feeling satisfied all afternoon.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Measure 2 tablespoons tzatziki into each of 4 small lidded containers and refrigerate.

  • Divide tabbouleh among 4 single-serving containers. Top each container with one-fourth of the greens (about 1 cup per container) and 3 falafel. Seal and refrigerate for up to 4 days. Before serving, transfer the falafel to a microwave-safe container and heat until steaming. Return to the original container and serve with tzatziki.


To make ahead: Refrigerate salad and tzatziki separately for up to 4 days. Heat falafel and top salad with tzatziki just before serving.
