September is just around the corner and we all know what that means: back to school, work, or whatever your regular routine might be. I know that when I get back at it, the last thing I am going to be doing (although I’ll be dreaming about it!) is making healthy home-cooked meals.
What’s the solution? Meal prep! Make a pile of delicious food, portion it, and freeze/store it. Here is a round-up of some of our favourite healthy recipes that you can make that will last you through the semester:
Farm-Fresh Stir Fry
Get linds’ delicious recipe here! Portion into airtight containers and place in the fridge for up to a week or the freezer for up to a month. Don’t forget the lovely garnish!
Breakfast on the fly? Here are four different types of oatmeal that you can put in the freezer to reheat in a pinch. The blueberry one is my fave!
Warm Fall Salad
There is nothing better on a chilly fall day than warm quinoa and root veggies. Recipe here.
Perfect for breakfast or a mid-day snack, these granola bars are loaded with good fats and protein. Get char’s recipe here.
Chia Seed Pudding
Here are four really tasty chia seed pudding recipes that have great fridge life. Chia seed pudding is very filling and packed with protein and omegas. You HAVE to try the matcha flavour!
Quick and Easy Nutty Granola
Not to brag, but this granola is divine. It’s sweet and crunchy and can be eaten so many different ways. On yoghurt, a smoothie bowl, with almond milk, or just on its own! Recipe here.
Balsamic Maple Chicken
Prepare this healthy meal in advance, portion it, and throw it in the freezer to reheat for a long night of studying. Check out the recipe here and don’t forget to try NaturallyHayleigh’s amazing brownies.
