The Most Important Meal of the Day
I don’t know about you, but my mornings can really set the mood for the rest of my day. Starting off the day with light and healthy, but filling breakfast always prevents me from snacking, at least until lunch. During the week, my go-to breakfast is always a protein shake or a smoothie bowl (build your own smoothie bowl here) along with a large glass of lemon water and jasmine green tea. By drinking a lot of water or tea, it really helps to curb my appetite. Also, when I’ve started my morning off on a healthy note, it keeps up the momentum for making health-conscious decisions throughout the day.
When it comes to lunchtime, I always try to stick to something light. I try to meal-prep for at least 4 days out of the week because knowing that I brought my food, keeps me from eating something I shouldn’t and it saves me money. Bringing my lunch to work is always a sure way of making sure I’m having a nutritious and filling meal that will give me energy rather than that 2pm tired feeling.
Quick & Easy Go-To Recipes
If you’ve been reading my blog for some time now, you know I’m all about the 30 minutes or less meals. After a long day at work, the last thing I want to do is slave over a meal. I always have 3-4 go-to recipes that I can count on during the week that are total life savers. Some of these are my Power Punch Salad, Chickpea Pesto Salad, my Vegan Pesto Pasta, or lately a quick salmon dinner with asparagus. A lot of the times I pre-make my pesto sauce (which can also double as a salad dressing), so that when I get home, all I need to do is cook the pasta or prep the veggies.
I hope this helps, and of course, if you ever have any questions, please feel free to leave them in the comments below! Happy eating!
