You want to eat healthy of course but you NEED to do it fast and conveniently. This blog will give you some quick options for a day of fast food (that won’t contribute to heart disease, cancer and diabetes to name a few).
When I am able to spend more time on meals, great. But for the common day to day go to’s, here are some of my favorite quick meals.
First, a note about when to eat what…who cares! No rules! If you want a salad for breakfast, do it. As long as you’re eating good food, it’s all good. But my breakfast is almost ALWAYS a green smoothie. They are super healthy, hydrating, tasty and fast to make. You can make tons of different combinations based on what you enjoy most (and also what’s fresh and in season). For more details about smoothies, click here.
I do lots of salads and “veggie bowls” but when I am in a hurry and need something tasty, quick and filling, here’s my go to: (of course I don’t measure anything so do more or less depending on what you like and how hungry you are;)
-Beans- at least 1 cup of whatever kind you like (I love almost all beans but often use black beans and chickpeas)
-Avocado- usually ½ of a small avocado
-1-2 cups of veggies- raw or steamed – I often do a combination of raw and steamed
-raw fermented sour kraut- to taste – I use a lot!!
*No rules, you could do this for breakfast or dinner as well
I commonly eat a lighter dinner because I sleep better that way. (PS, if you’re having sleep issues, give this a try…light dinner and then no food for a few hours before you lay down). A super-fast meal that I use on occasion is “overnight oats” only I don’t make them the night before. The base includes:
-organic rolled oats (not quick cooking)
-pinch of Pink Salt
-natural sweeteners: chopped fruit, applesauce, stevia, a small amount of maple syrup etc.
-optional: chopped nuts, protein powder, raisins, prunes or other dried fruits, chia seeds, hemp seeds, whatever you like.
Put the oats in a glass bowl or cup and add hot water. Cover and let sit for 10-20 min (longer is fine too). Stir in whatever you like and enjoy. For more info on this, check out the Overnight Oat post. If you want to know even more about the value of oats, click here as well.
These are all great options to take on the road as well!
