I know food can be a struggle when trying to live a healthy life. It can be daunting to meal prep for the week, deciding on which meals to make and sometimes, we just get tired. I wanted to simplify things for you and offer you 5 Easy Healthy Recipes that will take 30 minutes or less to give you one less thing to think about and plan. Making quick meals for dinner is a huge thing for me because I often get hungry quite early and so I want to whip up something quick.
A common factor amongst people that are trying to engage in a healthier lifestyle is they really miss sweet food. And by sweet food, I don’t mean a lovely and healthy apple or banana. No, I mean the processed bad guys such as candy, soda, cake, and all that not-so good but oh-so good stuff.
I have been feeling very proud of myself lately. For the past two weeks, I have been waking up at 6am on weekdays, at least twice a week, and going to the gym to workout. I recently started a full-time job, which means that the only time I can workout is before 8:30am or after 5pm. Since the gym is PACKED in the late afternoons and evenings, this really only left the mornings as a viable option.
It can seem almost impossible to stay healthy while snacking or as if all the healthy snacks you see recommended have some form of meat. I wanted to highlight some high protein snacks that vegetarian, easy to make and great to eat at work! Occasionally, I will see some really awkward snack ideas that, while healthy, take a long time to put together and/or seem messy to eat at your desk. I hope you enjoy my suggestions and please let me know your favorites!
You’re probably all familiar with zucchini noodles and pesto, but I bet you haven’t tried avocado with it! A friend of mine introduced me to this idea and I loved it. I couldn’t believe I hadn’t thought of adding avocado earlier. I had seen a lot of people on Instagram making zucchini noodles, so I took the plunge and bought a spiralizer. They have a fantastic texture and are like pasta in the sense that they take on the flavor of whatever sauce you add to it. This is a really easy and healthy lunch or dinner that only takes about 20-30 minutes. It’s a great low carb choice and the healthy fats from the avocado and pesto will keep you full and satisfied for hours. I normally like to grill some chicken on a cast iron grill to add some extra protein.
