19 dinner meal prep recipes that take 60 minutes or less

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, a solid meal prep routine has the power to change lives. How do I know that? It’s changed mine. The reason meal prep is so effective for transforming lifestyles for the better is because it saves the most important thing of all – time. Time is a finite resource. The biggest reason people find themselves making unhealthy choices is usually due to a lack of time. But meal prep can change all of that. Dinner is a sticking point for plenty of us. After a long (possibly stressful) day, the…

15 things you probably didn’t know you could meal prep

In the world of meal prep, there are the recipes that everyone knows about. Things like overnight oats, stir frys and soup are go-to meal prep ideas, and for good reason. They’re easy to prep, taste fantastic and (usually) store quite well until you want to eat them. I can’t explain the power of a fully-formed meal prep habit. It’s like some kind of magic. It makes eating healthy simple enough that you can stick to it long term. Plus you eat more vegetables and save a bunch of money – win-win! That said, it can be easy…

19 meal prep recipes to help you lose weight

Organisation and planning can help solve most problems that arise from trying to live a healthy lifestyle in the busy, convenient and confusing time we live in. Being organised and planning meals ahead of time is a tried-and-tested way to make better food choices. Choosing food when you’re hangry/in a rush/on the road can easily lead to overeating and less-than-ideal meal choices.

It found those who spent less than an hour per…

The most nutrient-dense carbohydrate foods.

Carbohydrates, in the form of grains, legumes and vegetables, are a food source that has kept the population fed and satisfied since the beginning of agriculture. They’re basically the reason humans have been able to survive and prosper for as long as we have. History aside, there is a whole lotta’ mixed opinions emerging about carbohydrates. Basically, the aim of eating carbohydrates is to supply the body’s cells and the brain with glucose. In a healthy diet, the body obtains enough carbohydrates to produce the glucose it needs to carry out daily functions. But all carbohydrate foods were not created equal. For optimal…

21 healthy breakfast recipes that are good enough for dessert

Busy mornings can make it easy to get stuck in a breakfast rut with the same routine meal losing its appeal after you eat it day in, day out. For an entire year of high school, I ate Weetbix (or Weetabix for my British friends) cereal before school. Every. Single. Day. Without fail, I started the morning with two Weetbix, milk and brown sugar. It’s been 7 years and I’ve only just been able to start enjoying them again. I must admit, 2009 was a breakfast rut for me. But it was the year I began eating breakfast for the first…

A house with a crappy foundation isn’t going to last long, just like a healthy day with a not-so-healthy breakfast. But if you fuel your body with the good stuff right from the start, you’ll find it much easier to make healthier eating choices all day long. But sometimes, finding the time to fit in a healthy, balanced breakfast can be a struggle for busy ladies such as ourselves. This is where meal prepping can make the difference between starting off…

15 recipes that don’t require a kitchen.

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll be more than aware that I’ve been suffering through a major kitchen renovation for the past nine weeks. Two weeks was doable. Five weeks was challenging. By eight weeks, it was a full-on nightmare! And then it was a delayed another week… But I survived, and now have a new lovely, white, pristine kitchen to boot. From a glass half full perspective, I even became a better cook. Being forced to live without a kitchen also forced me to become more creative with my recipes, ingredients and appliances. I also used a slow…
