In the world of meal preparation, time and convenience are the main deciding factors for success.
Costco has emerged as a potential game-changer with its ready-made meals, offering quick and easy solutions for lunch prep.
Here are the Top Picks from Costco Shoppers on Reddit:
- Costco Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes:
Imagine savoring a hearty meal without the hassle of cooking. Costco’s Kirkland Signature Meatloaf and Mashed Yukon Potatoes with Glaze, priced at $3.99 per pound, is a Reddit favorite. Nestled in the refrigerated deli area, this combo features a delectable ground beef meatloaf with glaze and rich Yukon gold mashed potatoes. Because who says comfort food can’t be convenient?
This delicious dish can be stretched into 4-6 servings – and don’t forget the meatloaf sandwiches!
- Costco Kirkland Signature Goat Cheese, Pecan, and Mixed Greens Salad:
For those who crave freshness without the fuss, Costco offers a delightful Goat Cheese, Pecan, and Mixed Greens Salad. Packaged in a resealable container, this salad is not only convenient but also incredibly tasty. With creamy goat cheese, crunchy pecans, and a sweet honey vinaigrette, it’s a perfect accompaniment to any meal – when paired with steak or KS rotisserie chicken as a light dinner.
At about $5.69 per pound, it’s much more economical than a lot of grocery store salad bars that charge up to $12 per pound (*cough* Whole Foods *cough*)
- Costco Eat Smart Sweet Kale Salad Kit:
Spice up your meal prep routine with the Eat Smart Sweet Kale Salad Kit. As suggested by Reddit user TreeBeach, stir-frying this mix with soy teriyaki sauce and adding your choice of protein turns it into a culinary masterpiece. Loaded with broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, kale, chicory, dried cranberries, roasted pumpkin seeds, and creamy poppy seed dressing, this salad is a crunchy, flavorful delight. It’s something you can eat multiple days during the week without getting tired of it.
By incorporating these meals into your routine and applying some meal prep hacks, you can not only save time but also enjoy a diverse and satisfying array of meals throughout the week.
