Food prep is key to staying on track during the week and Sunday’s are my favourite days to get organised. I thought I’d share 3 simple things I prep that really help me out in the week when I don’t have much time. This time of year I make sure I keep my motivation by prepping my meals and planning my workouts. As the mornings get darker and the evenings get chillier it’s get’s a bit more of a challenge not too ditch the sweat session for an extra hour in bed and avoid having 3 hot chocolates a day right?
Check out the video here to see my 3 simple sunday food preps and full recipes below.
I make a variation of overnight oats almost every night for my breakfast the next day. I’m a breakfast gal and can’t leave the house without it. With a busy week of early starts making my overnight oats is essential for my wellbeing and to keep me relaxed in the mornings.
1 mashed banana
1/2 cup of oats
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 cup of nut milk or water.
Optional: cacao nibs, pumpkin seeds, dates, honey, raspberries, flaked almonds, matcha powder, cacao powder, cinnamon.
Mix all of your ingredients together in a bowl of tupperware and make sure it’s covered with water or milk as the oats and chia seeds will expand. Leave in the fridge overnight and grab on the go in the morning.
Roasted Sweet Potatoes
I love to make a batch of roasted sweet potatoes on a Sunday so that I can throw some into my homemade salads that I take for lunch in the week.
1 large sweet potato
Preheat the oven to 180C. Chop the sweet potato into bite sized pieces and place on a light oiled baking tray and drizzle a little more oil on top. Sprinkle with your favourite spices and some sea salt. Roast for 30 minutes until soft. Take the sweet potato out the oven and allow to cool before putting in a tupperware to use in salads during the week. My favourite combo is sweet potato, avocado and pine nuts. See the recipe here.
So simple I know but essential to remember to freeze them to make the yummiest smoothies and sorbets in the week. Simply slice a couple of bananas and pop them in the freezer in a bowl or tupperware. I love to make banana sorbet by blending frozen bananas and a little nut milk for a healthy dessert.
I also make things like homemade granola, homemade bread, healthy bliss balls and almond milk so will share these very soon. What do you like to prepare on a Sunday to help you out in the week?
