healthy eating meal plansNikki Boswell, Nutritionist for the November 28 Day Challenge has provided her top tips on specific tasks to do and how to get organised for Week 2 of the Challenge to make meal prep really quick and easy:
Week one is done and dusted – ready or not, it’s time to get stuck into prep for Week Two.
If you followed my Week One prep tips and still struggled to get on top of your menu plan preparation, don’t worry, it takes a bit of practice but before you know it you will have developed your own routines and habits for getting quick, healthy meals on the table every night.
This week try:

  • Cooking a large batch of quinoa, cool under cold water, portion into individual serves and store in airtight containers in the fridge (for up to 3 days) for use in the Quinoa & Cheese Fritters and the Summer Quinoa Salad.
  • Cooking the chicken for the Crunchy Chicken & Noodle Salad ahead of time. Poach or bake the chicken until completely cooked, pre-chop and keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • Making a large batch of Salt & Vinegar Chickpeas ahead of time and keep in an airtight container. If you find they get a little soggier than you like, heat them a little in the oven before serving.
  • Making the Apples & Berries with Yoghurt breakfast the night before, as well as the Strawberry Oat Parfait – make a double batch of this one and save it for a snack on another day.

  • Making a large batch of Roast Pumpkin Hummus early in the week, portion into individual serves and keep in the fridge to use throughout the week or store in the freezer and save for a few months.
  • Making the Berry & Sago Breakfast Pudding the night before – this will not only save time in the morning but it will taste better too.
  • Making a batch of the Peanut Butter Bars in the second half of the week and store in an airtight container in the fridge to serve as required.
  • Cooking a batch of quinoa to use in the Quinoa Stuffed Capsicum breakfast the night before you plan to eat this meal.
