TIP 1: HAVE A GO-TO SET OF EASY AND QUICK RECIPES
There are so many online resources for quick meal ideas, get really good at making a handful of these and you’ll always have something to fall back on for last minute, quick and easy, but still nutritious meals!
I love focusing on sauces, then I know if I can make a delicious curry or pesto style sauce I can add literally any protein, veg and carbs to it for a yummy dinner. You can even freeze portions to speed things up even more. View @thefunctionaledition for more ideas.
TIP 2: KEEP A PANTRY OF HEALTHY STAPLES
Make sure that you have a stocked cupboard (and freezer) of basics that have a long shelf life – like spices, whole grains, nuts and seeds (which make great snacks), frozen berries and veggies, a good quality clean protein powder to name a few. This just means if you want to grab something quick you can be confident it’s healthy and also they can be the base to a nutritious meal.
TIP 3: KITCHEN APPLIANCES
Think about getting a time saving bit of kitchen kit like an air fryer, a ‘nutribullet’ style blender and/or a slow cooker. These appliances can make all of your meals so much easier to prep, meaning you are more likely to make something from scratch which will be much better for you!
