Eating healthier doesn't have to mean eating boring food, buying 'fancy' ingredients or slaving away in the kitchen for hours and hours. One of my passions is showing you just how easy it is to prepare healthy and nutritious meals that are so delicious too! So here are 3 recipes that are perfect for lunch time. All of these can be made in under 30 minutes and can also be made in advance which is perfect if you're in a rush in the morning or simply have a spare half an hour to meal prep.
- Courgette & Pea Fritters: These make a wonderful meal in their own right as they are perfectly balanced with fibre, protein, greens and healthy fats. Either have these on their own or serve them with a side salad. I store these in the fridge until I need them although you can freeze them for up to 1 month (just make sure you defrost them thoroughly and re-heat before eating).
- Baked Miso Eggplant: This is so delicious and absolutely full of flavour! Enjoy straight out of the oven or pack in your lunch box. Serve with cous cous, quinoa, brown rice or a side salad with root veg (so good!).
- Mushroom Ratatouille: This is one of the quickest and yummiest ways I love to prepare veggies. It also makes great use of any veggies that need using up or that you have lying around. Feel free to switch up the veggies too! This is a great recipe to store in the fridge or freezer and make ahead of time. Serve with brown rice, brown pasta, quinoa or even with a small serving of lean protein such as chicken, fish or eggs.
