I make everything from scratch, I prefer to because I know exactly whats in it, plus its cheaper as well. I don't work out exact macros of my meals but I could quite easily if I wanted to.
 
My chili consists of:
 
500g beef mince
1 large onion
2 tins of chopped toms
tomato puree
1 tin of kidney beans (rinsed first)
beef oxo cube
chili powder
seasoning (salf/pepper/basil)
teaspoon of brown sugar
teaspoon of cocoa powder
 
I sometimes add in a green pepper, mushrooms or some other pulses, and I let it cook for about 90mins on a low heat. I can get on with other stuff then while its cooking.
 
Makes about 5-6 decent portions. My rice is cooked seperately and frozen seperately. I freeze it all straight away, don't even let them cool down first sometimes if I'm in a rush. I have a big freezer with a drawer dedicated to just prepped meals.
 
I take a portion of rice and a portion of chili or curry the night before and defrost them together in one tub. Been doing it for years, never has any issues like food poisoning.


If you make 5 or 6 portions out of 500g mince that’s only 17-20g protein per serving.

I know you said you don’t count macros but that’s quite low? How many meals do you have a day?

I used to have 500g mince over 2 meals. That’s my problem. When I prep I end up eating tomorrows food 😄

There is a company near my office that does meal prep now, every morning on the coffee run we see the muscle food delivery show up and then the staff coming back with aldi chicken thighs.
 
Never considered it myself, usually batch cook on a Sunday, one of the best investments I've made is a massive commercial style pan (fit at least 3 bunnies in it) and frying pan from Ikea.
 
If I don't get a chance to batch cook, i just make extra the night before and have the leftovers

I bought a decent pan , the scoville never-sticks are absolutely tremendous but its only 28 cm , what kind of pan did you buy , was thinking about a pressure cooker for curries and chillies .

 Aye, I got some crazy pan in the sales, that's made of some alloy that friendlier for the environment as its more efficient to heat up.
 
My Ikea pot is like 9 Litre called a snitsigg, or sintsigg or something, proper school dinner beast
