FRIDAY PIZZA NIGHT!!!!
I love turning junk food into healthy food. These are the shiz, even the hubby agrees!
These are a great option to take to work for lunch because the taste great hot or cold. I always make sure I have a source of protein, fat and greens in each meal. Zucchini fritters are a great way to get a nutrient dense meal whilst still been quick and easy to prepare.
Lunch is such a crucial part of the day. This is when we may feel our blood sugar levels fluctuating and cravings for sweet or salty foods kick in. Raiding the fridge and cupboards at 3pm doesn’t tick any of the boxes for a nourishing lunch either.
I think of food as fuel. A meal that makes you feel lethargic and sleepy is not nourishing your cells. When you look at you meal think to yourself.. Is this meal nutrient dense.
Three key points to remember when making lunch:
#1 Protein is vital at this time of the day as it provides a slow release of energy and will stabilize your blood glucose levels.
#2 Fat chosen from whole food sources is also important. It is satiating, meaning you will feel full after eating it and are less likely to reach for an unhealthy snack at afternoon tea.
#3 The next step is to incorporate vegetables into your lunch. Now you are in the game and your body will be thanking you.
Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable. It contains B group vitamins, omega-3 and vitamin K. Cauli also contains antioxidants and phytonutrients which protect our body from free radical damage. Additionally it is a good source of fibre.
