FROZEN VEG­ETA­BLES

Clutha Leader - - DAFFODIL DAY -

For some peo­ple, the time they per­ceive it takes to chop up veg­eta­bles is a bar­rier for them to in­clude enough each day. If this is you, per­haps keep a cou­ple of bags of frozen veg­eta­bles in your freezer for days when you would like to save on prep time. Snap freez­ing re­tains nu­tri­ents well so frozen veg­eta­bles are still a great choice nu­tri­tion­ally, and they come al­ready chopped for you. Or chop fresh veges and see how lit­tle time that ac­tu­ally takes! side to lunches and din­ners over the next few days. Or a big batch of quinoa that you can add to a few meals.

If you strug­gle to make time to pre­pare a nu­tri­tious break­fast, you could por­tion out the in­gre­di­ents for a green smoothie (such as some ba­nana, spinach etc) and freeze into daily por­tions so that in the morn­ing, all you need to do is throw one lot in the blender with some water, al­mond milk or co­conut water and blend. Or you could make a chia pud­ding or overnight oats in the evenings and place them in the fridge so they’re ready to eat the next morn­ing.
