I have no time what so ever. I mean no time! I am the kind of mother that looks on single people who say their tired and growl! Like you have nooooooo idea what tired really is, try 3 kids!
I digress, as a mother and business woman on the go the struggle daily with what healthy foods to eats. I fast figured out that preparing your own food is the only way you can actually have the best quality food and track what you’re eating.
Here are my top breakfast/lunch ideas you can quickly prepare with screaming toddlers and a big kid with fashion issues.
All you can eat need is an egg which is a great source of protein, wheat bread, seasoning and lettuce. I love thyme so I use that along with parsley in my scramble egg. Use butter or coconut oil and almond milk to make the eggs
Avocado Egg Salad
This is so tasty and filling and wheat bread can be added for a lunch time meal. Mash ripe avocado with lemon juice, pepper and parsley. Add boiled eggs and mix together, smear all that goodness onto bread or avocado wrap and yummy goodness begins!
Tuna salad or Tuna casserole is quick easy and filling. Tuna is a good lean meat and has a distinctive taste that I just love. Use it for sandwiches or mix it with quinoa for a filling lunch meal.
Smoothies might me the easiest and the simplest meal to make. Yes, I said meal, using the right ingredients you can be filled for up to receive 4 hours, just in time for your next meal. You can either buy fresh fruit, dice and freeze them until your ready to use them it. For the greens the method is different. You can find all the information you will ever need about a smoother lifestyle from my blog post about “Do you want to be able Smoothie guru?” Here is my favourite breakfast smoothie
- 1 cup oat
- 1 ripe banana
- 2 cups almond milk
- Crushed ice
- Honey *optional*
Oatmeal and fruit
This should be the universal healthy and easy breakfast ever for mums on the go! Boiled water and to oats, grab some fruit and you can literally eat this in the car…. don’t! But you can.
Eating healthy isn’t very easy when you have young ones. The key isn’t to start with one meal for 3 weeks and replace another meal by week 4. Just remember for breakfast eat like King, for lunch eat like a Duke, and for dinner eat like a pauper.
