TASTY TUESDAY: Meal Prep Lunch Idea

Happy Tasty Tuesday!
Let's be honest, as the seasons change our schedules become a lot busier, leaving us with little time to keep up with those summer bods we’ve worked so hard for. In an effort to keep (or start) a healthy lifestyle this fall we've teamed up with one of our favorite foodies to teach us a thing or two about MEAL PREP.  Olivia Biermann of @livshealthylife  is the master of prepping quick and healthy meals to give us energy and ease into our busiest of seasons. Keep scrolling to find a simple, tasty and fun prepped meal idea. 

 

Tortilla Roll-ups:

1 large whole wheat tortilla

2-3 tbsp hummus

1 tbsp finely chopped tomato

1 tbsp finely chopped cucumber

1 tbsp alfalfa sprouts 

To assemble, spread 2-3 tablespoons of hummus over the whole wrap in a thin even layer. Then, add the tomato, cucumber and sprouts in a line near the bottom of the wrap, like you are making sushi. Roll the wrap up over the chopped vegetables, making sure it is tight. Once it is rolled up, slice into bite-size pieces.

 

Cucumber Stars:

1/3 cucumber, sliced evenly

Star-shaped cookie cutter

Cut stars into each slice of cucumber. Use the leftover cucumber scraps for the tortilla roll-ups.

 

Bliss Balls:

1 cup pitted dates

1 cup cashews (or other soft nut)

1 tbsp cocoa powder

2 tbsp liquid sweetener (like maple syrup) 

In a food processor, add all the ingredients and process until it becomes a dough-consistency. Using your hands, roll the dough into balls (about the size of a Ping-Pong ball). Refrigerate at least 1 hour before eating. Store in the fridge in an airtight container for 5 days.

Rainbow Fruit & Veggies:

Pick your favourite fruits or veggies and simply line them up in rainbow order or mix together for a different look. Here are some suggestions for each colour.

Red: strawberries, raspberries, red pepper, tomato

Orange: carrot, orange pepper, orange slices

Yellow: banana, yellow pepper, mango, yellow cauliflower

Green: kiwi, green pepper, olives, celery

Blue: blueberries

Purple: red grapes, red cabbage, purple cauliflower
