Healthier options that are a breeze to make!

Do you want to eat healthier, but don't have the time or energy to prepare all that food? Nowadays, it's so much easier to grab a snack from the supermarket or our favourite fast food chain when we're on the go. However, these snacks do tend to give us a short burst of energy, as opposed to the slow release we get from healthy foods. If you crave something with a little more 'oomph' than plain old fruit and veg, try whipping up these quick, healthy snacks. They're super tasty, and will leave you feeling energised far longer than that chocolate bar or cheeseburger!

Breakfast

Start off with some delicious broccoli and feta omelettes. Loading up on fibre and protein in the morning will have you filled up until lunchtime. Crumble a small amount of feta over your omelette for a light diary fix. Add a slice or two of toast and you’ve got yourself a fulfilling quick-fix breakfast!

For an even simpler, frying pan-free breakfast, try almond butter and sliced banana on toast. Featuring metabolism-boosting starches and nutty proteins to keep you full, this twist on regular toast will have you feeling energised for hours. Use peanut butter if you’re not a fan of almonds.

Lunch

You can easily boost the amount of nutrition and flavour in your egg salad sandwich by adding some curry powder. Also, by switching out mayonnaise for a spoonful of natural greek yoghurt when mixing your eggs, you will keep your fat and calorie intake low, without skipping on taste!

If you’re in need of a snack to quell those between lunch and dinner cravings, whip up some avocado cups. Smash some avocado, add some spices and serve spoonfuls of them in lettuce leaves. This snack will provide a fresh crunch for your tastebuds, and you don’t even have to worry as much about overindulging!

Dinner

Mexican cuisine is always a great choice for flavour and simplicity when it comes to prep and cooking. If you have some fresh fish, beef or chicken in the fridge, cut it into strips, grill it up with Mexican spices and chop some salads for fresh tacos. Whether you like them hard or soft, tacos are always a winner for an easy dinner.

No matter what you have in your fridge and pantry, there’s always something you can stuff into half a capsicum. Capsicum cups are extremely versatile, as they’ll go with almost anything from meat to chopped veggies and cheese. Fill half a hollowed-out capsicum with ricotta and spinach, season with salt and pepper and bake for around 20 minutes at 180 degrees. Yum yum!
