You can (and should) meal prep snacks too!
Especially your produce! Stuff that needs prepping before you can eat it. When I’m feeling hungry, I’m 10x more likely to grab a healthy snack if it’s already prepared and ready to go. And I know I’m not the only one.
Most unprepared produce is not a quick snack. Spending 10-20 minutes washing/chopping/prepping all the produce you have is the way to go, instead of letting it sit in the fridge. I know every experienced meal prepper out there would agree with me.
So in the spirit of meal prepping snacks, here are these adorable Herbed Goat Cheese Rainbow Snack Boxes that are perfect for meal prepping up some fruits and veggies. Eat the rainbow!
Where do you get those meal prep containers?
The containers I use for meal preps (and snack preps!) are these 3 Compartment Glass Meal Prep Containers made by Prep Naturals. They also make 1 and 2 compartment containers. I get them on Amazon.
I like to keep my dips and sauce away from things until they’re ready to be dipped, you know? So for this snack box meal prep, I like to use the 3 compartment containers. For all my meal prep container recommendations, please have a read of The Best Meal Prep Containers (all based on my own opinions and containers I’ve tried!).
How do you make the Herbed Goat Cheese?
Set out 8 ounces of a plain goat cheese log and let it come to room temperature (or close – it’s easier to mix that way). Meanwhile, chop up some fresh herbs. Use at least two of the following fresh herbs – parsley, chives, tarragon, and dill. You need about two tablespoons.
In the mix that’s pictured, I used fresh parsley and dill because that’s what I had on hand. Use herbs you like best, or whatever is left in your fridge!
Mix the herbs into the goat cheese with about 1 tablespoon of olive oil, fresh ground black pepper and a little bit of sea salt. And it’s ready! To divide into four containers, I just eyeball measured but feel free to weigh out the portions for accuracy.
What’s in the Herbed Goat Cheese Rainbow Snack Boxes?
Herbed Goat Cheese: I’ve been trying to eat less dairy lately, at least dairy that’s more friendly to my stomach, and goat cheese fits the bill. Similar to my Pesto Goat Cheese Dip, but less pesto, less calories, and more fresh herbs.
Rainbow Mini Sweet Peppers: These are the ones you find in a bag near all the hot peppers. Trick is they aren’t hot at all, but seriously sweeter than bell peppers. So cute and delicious!
Cucumber: To achieve the stripes on the sides of the cucumber slices, use a peeler to remove long strips of cucumber peel following the entire length of the cucumber. Leave a strip of peel on the cucumber in between the removed strips. It doesn’t even have to be neat to look fancy once the cucumber is cut!
Red Grapes: Which actually fit into the rainbow under the purple category. We love grapes around here so that’s why I use them often! Use green grapes if you want but your rainbow will start to turn green.
Blueberries: We all love blueberries, don’t we? That’s why I added them in to this snack box. YUM.
Swap the _________ For ___________
Swap the herbed goat cheese for hummus: A dip for all vegetables, I feel like more people enjoy hummus over goat cheese, so if you’re one of those people then just go with any hummus you enjoy!
Swap the cucumber for broccoli florets, avocado slices, sugar snap peas, or any other green vegetable you enjoy raw.
Swap the sweet mini peppers for regular bell peppers, carrots, cherry tomatoes, strawberries, mandarin orange slices, or any combination.
Swap the grapes and blueberries for strawberries, raisins, or raspberries.
Add cooked chicken, crackers or nuts to make it a more substantial snack or small meal.
