As a food safety manager, I do not recommend meal prepping only once a week due to bacterial growth.
Meal prep can be done as little as twice a week, ensuring that all food is eaten within 3 to 4 days of being prepared or cooked.
Also, no food should sit unrefrigerated for more than 2 hours once it has been prepared or cooked.
