Healthy Go To Meals & Snacks

Life gets busy and sometimes making something quick, easy and healthy can be a challenge. That is why I decided on making a post about my go to foods. 

When the morning is hectic and you're rushing to get out the door but need to grab something quick and healthy, grab a banana and a slice of toast with peanut butter. Bananas have been proven to provide just as much energy as a cup of coffee but you won't crash after. There are so many great things bananas can do for you. My perfect breakfast food! 

At lunchtime I really start craving salty foods. My current favourite go to food at this time of day is the Campbell's Gardenia Soups (250ml=3pts). They are ready to go, I pour it into a cup and microwave it for 2 minutes. Super easy and lots of delicious flavours. I like to pair it up with some wheat thin crackers (12pcs=2pts) and a serving of raw vegetables on the side, I normally have broccoli with a low calorie dressing. 

My go to dinner meal is a simple garden salad and shake and bake boneless skinless chicken breast. Meal takes 25minutes! Super yummy and fast. 

Wanting a snack? It’s important to always have fresh fruit ready. When purchasing fruit that requires preparation I always make sure to chop it all up and put it in tupperware containers in the fridge. I find I am more likely to grab something that’s ready to eat when I want to snack. I always have a fruit bowl with apples, bananas, oranges and sometimes pears there for me to easily grab. Another good one is Orville Redenbacher’s Smart Pop popcorn it is a great option and really delicious! Only 3pts for half a bag and high in fiber.  

Hopefully my current go to meals help you make a healthier choice. Just remember to keep certain items stocked in your kitchen and it will make it easier to choose the healthier option. 

I change my go to food often, so as it changes I will be sure to share with all of you.
