This 21 Day Fix meal prep has a warming winter twist: holiday spice overnight oats and hearty turkey chili.
Instead of cooking oatmeal, add dry rolled oats to Mason jars with a combination of spices, plus yogurt and fresh berries, and put them in the refrigerator.
If you prefer hot oatmeal for breakfast, make a large batch of oatmeal and divide into jars. When it’s time to eat, just remove the lids, add a little water, stir, and reheat in a microwave.
This meal prep is for the 1,500–1,800 calorie level. Here is the container count for each day:

Chili is a great place to experiment with spice and heat Our recipe is lightly seasoned with chili powder and crushed red pepper, but you can add even more flavor with small amounts of other spices like cumin, oregano, cayenne pepper, or chipotle powder or by adding chopped jalapeño.
If heat isn’t your thing, you can tone down any chili recipe by topping your bowl with a scoop of plain Greek yogurt.
