1 5 MINS Prep veg & salad

Healthy Food Guide (Australia) - - SHOPPING -

The last thing most of us want to do af­ter a long day at work is to peel and chop ve­g­ies. It also eats a lot into your food prep time. Use Sun­day to peel and chop your onion, gar­lic, cap­sicum, car­rot and other ve­g­ies. They will all keep in the fridge for a few days, as will washed salad leaves and rinsed beans.

Roast a big batch of pump­kin, sweet potato and beet­root to toss through lunchtime sal­ads or serve them with din­ners. You’re over half­way to hav­ing a tasty salad, so why not make your own dress­ing too? It’s health­ier (and cheaper) than store­bought va­ri­eties. Mix one part bal­samic vine­gar with three parts olive oil, shake and driz­zle for a healthy dress­ing!

Boil half a dozen eggs Cook your favourite meals in dou­ble or triple batches Cut car­rot, cu­cum­ber and cel­ery into sticks Chop, skewer and mar­i­nate beef, lamb or chicken Freeze stock and tomato paste
