78 Funny Meal Prep Memes

By: Jeremy Fox, CNC, CPTPublished: February 3, 2022

For those striving to be fit, meal prep is part of our daily vocabulary and weekly routine. But most of us have a love/hate relationship with meal prepping.

We love to eat clean and see results from our hard work. Yet, we hate the tedious nature of planning and preparing.

I dedicated this entire article to the funniest meal prep memes on the internet. So we can all stop taking ourselves so seriously and have a laugh!

Also, I’ve grouped the memes into 7 categories called Feels, Fails, Lifestyle, Reality, Tupperware, Cheats, and Prep Day.

Meal Prep Feels Memes

In this first category are the memes about how meal prep makes you feel. Some feelings are good… some not so good.

1. Victory Lap

When you finish prepping your meals for the week (or even the day) you might feel like taking a victory lap. Go on and feel good about yourself.

2. Smell What The Rock Is Cooking

Once you hit your groove in the kitchen, you might feel as confident as Dwayne Johnson rocking this chef’s hat.

3. Portion Control

Most calorie restriction diets make you feel like you could prep your meals in a dollhouse kitchen. On the plus side, your grocery bill would be tiny!

4. Meal Prep Made Simple

If you’re going tiny with your meal prep, you might as well make it simple. How nice, this meal prep container has a compartment for each slice of cucumber.

5. Time Wasted

Has this ever happened to you? You put in the time and energy to prep your meals then you forget to grab them when you leave the house!

Meal Prep Memes Forgot Lunch

6. Un-thawed Meat

A similar feeling is when you have everything ready to go and you realize you forgot to thaw out the meat. In this case, “un-thawed” probably would be the correct usage of the verb.

7. Chicken Or… Chicken

What’s on the menu today, chicken or… chicken? When meal prep consists of nothing more than plain chicken, rice, and broccoli you might feel as drab as this guy.

Meal Prep Memes Chicken And Rice

8. Six Times Per Day

With repetitive meal plans, you may feel like throwing up at just the thought of one more bite of broccoli. I like how this recipe also calls for three almonds. 😂

9. Variety Is The Spice Of Life

After weeks of eating the same thing, you might feel like giving up before you even get done prepping! Don’t be like this lady, spice things up by rotating your meals or combining new ingredients.

10. Post Prep

Meal prep can feel like a workout in itself. When you finish, take a well-deserved nap.

Meal Prep Fail Memes

There’s no single best way to meal prep. That being said, there are some wrong ways… here are a bunch of examples.
