Lunches On the Go!

Recently I polled my socials to ask you guys what meal you struggle the most with: breakfast, lunches, dinner or snacks….truth be told you said all of them so over the next few blogs I will be answering questions and sharing some info to help reduce the struggle.

I am going to share 5 easy lunch recipes that are delicious and will keep you filled to crush your day. But before we jump into that I want to share why most people struggle with lunches on the go - the main reason time and time again is they fail to plan and prep their meals ahead of time. I totally get it, we all have full schedules and in no way am I saying it’s always “easy”, I just want to share tips that have worked for me so that I can stay nourished even on those busy days.

Healthy Double Chocolate Muffins

As a mom one of the biggest struggles during the school year is keeping lunch packing fun and fresh. I use to struggle hard with wondering what the heck to pack in my kids lunches. My goal this year was to avoid packaged snacks and lunch options to not only know what is in their food but to also help with environmental waste. In turn this has allowed me to save money on our groceries as well. A lot of the processed snacks can add up!

We buy bananas every week and if we ever have any really ripe ones left that always equals fresh muffins. We try to avoid food waste by using up what we can. So a few weeks ago I had some really ripe bananas and created this awesome recipe for school lunches and an after school snack. They were such a hit with the neighbourhood kids that they disappeared right away. In that moment I knew I had to share this recipe with all of you. I know it’s May and we are nearing the end of the school year and this is usually when our lunch creativity is at it’s lowest, so hopefully this recipe helps you out moms.

If you are not a mom and pack lunches for kids I am happy to say these are kick ass snacks for adults too!

Spring Detox Quinoa Salad

This past week, I was craving so much fresh raw foods, more salads and veg and a lot less roasting. I created this delish salad that was my lunch go to and I wanted to share it with all of you because it’s easy, delish and nutritious.

Each ingredient was added with intention and purpose. When you make your meals do you think of what you are putting into your body and why? I like to, that way I know I am fueling my day. I completely understand that not everyone does, has the time to or even knows how. This is where I come in to help keep it simple.

Chicken Detox Stew

Spring is in the air and that vibe always brings about a good Spring cleaning in our home. Along with cleaning out the house I do love a good real food reset to help facilitate a detox within our bodies.

People often think a detox means picking up a detox pill package or a special tea. A healthy detox is all about resetting, resting and nourishing the body from the inside out. At the same time eliminating any toxins or foods that can hinder the body’s natural detoxification process.

It’s about adding in foods that nourish our body and our cells. In this recipe, broccoli works to help detoxify the body it has a high amount of fiber, which allows you to feel full and it also works to keep your blood sugar low and balance between meals. This super veg also contains antioxidants and phytonutrients, which improves the detox process in your body and helps to eliminate other toxins.

I am working on putting together a 7-21 day real food reset detox program that will be coming out at the end of the month so if you feel like you could use a reset keep an eye out for it.

This is one of the recipes that will be in the program, it’s quick and easy to make and feels like comfort food warming you from the inside out. A perfect dish to add into your Sunday meal prep, we like to individually portion in containers for a delish grab and go lunch.

This is a vegan family fave that again is really versatile. If you don’t do mushrooms you can easily substitute for your favourite protein source. If you have an allergy to nuts you can omit cashews and substitute with cream.

One of my favourite things about this recipe is that it feels and tastes like comfort food and it can whipped up in under 20 minutes. As a mom of 3, you will notice a trend of quick and easy meal ideas because I get it. Time can be a huge factor when it comes to healthy eating, I am here to make it easy, delicious and remove time as an excuse for getting a good meal on the table.
