Meal Prepping, how do you do it?
Long day (of work) behind you but still want to eat healthily? It’s possible! Hunkemöller ambassador Carmen gives you tips & inspiration for meals/snacks you can easily prepare and take with you (read: meal prepping). Read about it below.
1. Keep it simple:
Meal preps don’t have to be difficult at all. When you have to take your lunch somewhere, why not take a delicious wrap with cream cheese and chicken instead of a couple of sandwiches? Or a wrap with cottage cheese and salmon? You can easily make parts of your dinner the day before – you can boil or stir-fry veggies, or cook some rice or potatoes. Add a boiled egg, warm it up and voilà!
2. Keep it varied:
Variation is very important. It is not only good for your dietary pattern but also ensures that you get plenty of nutrients. Take enough fruit for snacks, some nuts for healthy fats and change your sandwich/wrap filling once in a while. Try it!
3. Keep it coloured:
This tip is especially important for dinner. You’ve probably seen ‘Eat a Rainbow’ at some point. The advantage of having different colours in your food is that every colour provides different nutrients. For example, green vegetables contain different nutrients than red vegetables. Making a stir-fry? Use different coloured peppers, courgette, mushrooms, red onions and yellow onions. It’s not only delicious, it’s also a pleasure to look at!
Taking your own meals with you doesn’t have to be difficult at all & it is a lot better for your health than eating pre-packaged products from the supermarket. Try it sometimes!
