I usually put healthy food in my bento for the first two days of the week and then the rest of the week its sandwiches. I cook on the weekend and save them for the week but I don't have any recipes that freeze well or that last a long time. I was wondering if any of you guys could give me some ideas or your make ahead recipes whether it is frozen or refrigerated, anything is fine. I just need healthy food to be ready. No red meat please!

Thanks a bunch guys!

Falafels and hummus both freeze well. Smoked or salted salmon (see Maki's instructions) do too. Maki's cooked to death peppers last for ages in the fridge (if you don't eat them). Salad ingredients, like tomatoes or any raw stuff really. Hard boiled eggs. Poached chicken or teriyaki chicken go in the freezer.

My favorite make ahead and freeze food is rice! It's so comforting to know there's a stack of rice ready to go. (At the moment I can't freeze anything, since I only have a tiny tiny refrigerator. So frustrating!)
