The old saying "failing to prepare is preparing to fail", doesn't have to ring true when it comes to eating well and staying on track.
When we fail to prepare healthy snacks and food for our body, we are preparing to grab processed foods which will not satisfy our hunger or needs.
Our suggestion would be to put aside 45 minutes every Sunday afternoon to make the following;
For when the sweet tooth hits - Clean Mixes Bliss Ball Mixes
It takes roughly eight minutes to make balls from the mix. Empty the packet into a bowl, add melted coconut oil and rice syrup (2-3 Tbsp of each depending on mix), mix and then roll into balls. Heck - if you are feeling super time poor, simply press into a tray to make slice. Too easy. Shop Clean Mixes here >>
We can't go wrong with green - big salad container
This could be a Tupperware advert for Vent Smart containers (the salad lasts so well!), but any container will do. Get creative and make a bit salad in an air tight container. Ensure the ingredients are dry; lettuce, tomato, cucumber, radish, fresh herbs (take it to the next level), and capsicum. Great creative! Then come meal time, it's simply; grab some out, and EAT!
To bulk up meals - roast vegetables
The perfect accompaniment to any meal. Pick favourites, chop and roast. Our favourites are orange sweet potato, and roast potato. But don't forget the humble carrot, onion, zucchinni and herbs. Sweet potato and cinnamon is amazing - give it a shot! Roast vegetables will keep up to five days in the fridge, and can always be freshened up by popping them back in the oven for around 10 minutes if you prefer them hot.
Don't forget the protein - roast a favourite
We like to roast a large chicken, which then can be used in salads / sandwiches / rolls and dinners. Debone the chicken into an airtight container and it's done. Try stuffing the chicken cavity with a lemon, some sage/rosemary and garlic. Roast any protein you prefer to eat with your lunches - cold lamb is delish also!
Give the above suggestions a go and see how you feel. Then, when you are pulling them together, mix up the base ingredients above with these suggestions;
- Pump up salads with hummus, coconut chips, nuts and seeds, lemon, apple cider vinegar.
- Turn salad and meat into a wrap
- Poach some eggs and serve on roast vegetables for breakfast/brunch
- Clean Mixes served with coconut yogurt for an afternoon snack or dessert
- A frozen Bliss Ball for post workout replenishment
