For a quick meal with 0 meal prep, try tinned bean, lentils, tinned veg such as sweetcorn or peas, mixed with packeted pasta sauce. Serve this medley with heated packeted grains. Its a good idea to keep these tinned/ packeted foods in case you come home tired, anddon’t want to get a takeaway/ eat unhealthily. Its a good idea to freeze meals such as homemade soups or cottage pie ect. But these take longer to defrost!
Day one of my fitness kick went really well, I started the day by weighing myself and noting down my measurements (waist, hips and thighs) in order to set new goals. For breakfast I had fruit and yogurt followed by a protein shake pre workout. In the gym today I set a new goal of working up to a 45 minute run outside or on the treadmill. For lunch I had the other half of my boxing day salmon, pan fried with vegetables and homemade cranberry sauce. Then for dinner I had more vegetables, a large portion of boiled kale with 3 scrambled eggs (no yolks mixed with soya milk)
For a betime snack, I am going to opt for chopped fruit with a handful of dried fruit and nuts with a chocolate oveltine drink to stop my sweet tooth craving!
Let me know your healthy Christmas leftover combinations!
Try some vegetable fritters: grated carrot and courgette, with kidney beans, sweetcorn and chopped spinach. Mixed with 2 eggs and cooked in olive oil!
Sometimes after a week or a few days of having a reasonably unhealthy diet, I find that having a day of sticking to really healthy stuff gets me back into the swing of making the right food choices.
