The other day I spoke about how meal prep can be as easy as some simple veggie prep, having protein on hand & baking some healthy snacks & it’s so true!
It’s only Tuesday & I feel like it’s Friday because it’s been such a long week already but one thing’s for sure: having done even just the bare minimum for meal prep this week has saved me so much time & distractions so I can place more focus on the other things I need to get done!
On Sunday, I cooked some quinoa & washed & sliced some veggies & it all came to such good use this afternoon when I got hungry for lunch!
To make this super simple salad, just throw together your fave crunchy veggies, some nuts, seeds or avocado for healthy fats, cooked grains (anywhere between 1/2-1/4 cup depending on your hunger level), add in some greens or alfalfa sprouts & some fruit for natural sweetness if you wish (I used apples because it’s the season!), then season it lightly with some lemon, spices & vinegar of choice!
- zucchini noodles (sweet potato, butternut squash or beet noodles would be great too!)
- red delicious apple (pear or peach would be bomb also!)
- alfalfa sprouts
- 1/4 cup cooked organic quinoa (or try other grains, such as: freekeh, amaranth, buckwheat, black or wild rice)
- 1-2 tbsp. whole tigernuts for prebiotics & fats (almond, walnuts, pecans or cashews would be bomb also!
I then seasoned it with lemon, apple cider, red wine vinegar, turmeric for a little kick, sea salt, black pepper and a bit of cayenne!
