Air Fryer Meal Prep Recipes
We’re going to talk about air fryer meal prep ideas.
There are so many options out there for meal prep recipes, but I like the idea of using the air fryer (yes, there is more to the air fryer than cooking frozen french fries).
The air fryer is one of my favorite appliances.
It not only makes my favorite meals healthier (by using less oil), it is so versatile with what you can cook in it.
I have the Ninja Foodi, which is a pressure cooker, slow cooker, air fryer, all in one. It does a ton more too but these three what I use it for the most.
My oven also has a built-in air fryer, and I may or may not have another air fryer coming in the mail sometime soon.
Aside from the Foodi, here are some popular air fryer options:
- Ultrean AirFryer
- Phillips Kitchen (I used to have a similar model and it works well, but it’s pricier).
- NuWave AirFryer
- COSORI AirFryer (this one has great reviews and is super popular).
- Instant Pot Vortex
Using your air fryer for meal prep is a great way to plan ahead, save time and keep you on track with your weekly meal plan.
It’s quick, it’s easy, and it allows me to still use my oven and stove to prep one meal and use the fryer to make others. This simple kitchen appliance helps cut my meal prep time in half.
