When it comes to healthy eating, having a good repertoire of meals is essential. You don’t need to be a fancy chef, but having some quick go to meals and a source to explore more varied recipes makes the weekly meal plan a little easier!
I often recommend to my clients to have a list of 2 or 3 go to recipes for breakfast and lunch, then for dinner options having more like 4-5 easy meals up your sleeve, and plan to try one new dinner recipe a week.
To give you some examples of quick breakfasts:
- overnight oats (easy to prep a few in advance)
- breakfast quiches
- porridge in winter, or yoghurt & natural muesli in summer
Quick lunch ideas:
- tuna or chicken with salad and quick cup rice/quinoa
- the simple salad sandwich on grainy with some protein like chicken, egg, tuna
- frittata or quiche that can be made at the beginning of the week
I love to encourage building evening meals with protein, vegetables and some low GI grains. Here are some great websites that have easy recipes that don’t have crazy long ingredient lists!
