Eat Yourself Fit: Make Your Workout Work Harder - Rosanna Davison (2016)
PART 6. FAST FOOD FOR BUSY BODIES
I fully understand how challenging it can be to eat well when you’re busy and under time pressure. I’ve designed the majority of the meals, smoothies, sweet treats and snacks to be simple to make and affordable, plus most of the ingredients should be available in one good supermarket.
TAKE 10 INGREDIENTS, MAKE 5 MEALS
My advice is to stock up on a range of dried herbs and spices, coconut oil, coconut milk, oats, quinoa, garlic, nutritional yeast, flours, beans and legumes, nuts, seeds and nut butters to have on hand when you haven’t had time to shop for fresh produce.
Bring this list with you the next time you’re in the supermarket with limited time and meal inspiration. Once you have the basics, you can play around with using different herbs and spices to flavour your meals.
