5 minute Pot Lunch: Chickpea, Basil Salad and Tomatoes

5 minute Pot Lunch: Chickpea, Basil Salad and Tomatoes 

So I had no time to make lunch the night before so as I was making breakfast I put this tasty combination together. All done in about 5 minutes, from fridge to bag. No cooking and minimal chopping. 

(Serves 1)

1 handful rocket
1 handful spinach 
1 handful broccoli stalks 
1 large tomato, sliced 
1/2 can chickpeas 
2 " soya cheese, cubed 
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp mixed herbs
1 tsp basil puree 

Add all the ingredients to a lunch box container. Throw in a folk, a small pot of nuts, a piece of fruit and head to work.

6 Hour Satisfaction Breakfast! Raw Berries & Seeds.

6 Hour Satisfaction Breakfast! Raw Berries & Seeds

This breakfast keeps me satisfied, the cravings at bay and focused on the tasks of the day for 6 whole hours! You can switch it up with different fruit or switch the seeds up for different types. It's as quick as cereal and so cheap you'll be wanting it every morning. 

(Serves 1)
1 large handful frozen mango
1 large handful frozen raspberries 
1 handful frozen or raw banana 
1 tbsp buckwheat groats*
1 tbsp flaxseed 
250ml boiling water 
1/4 tsp cinnamon 

Mix all in a bowl and top with the boiling water. This thaws the fruit and allows the flaxseed to thicken the water. Serve and enjoy! 

Using frozen fruit saves on time chopping as you can just pour it in the bowl. 

I hope you enjoy and let me know if you keep satisfied for up to 6 hours! 

*buckwheat groats are seeds which are more starchy unlike normal seeds which tend to be more fatty. They can be eaten like this raw or can be cooked to become fluffy. You can buy them from Tesco, Waitrose and most health food shops.

Pear and Courgette Noodle Salad (raw vegan)

Pear and Courgette Noodle Salad (raw vegan)

I've been loving my raw salads for lunch everyday for the past few months. They're so refreshing an surprisingly satisfying! Gluten free, vegan and even raw! 

(Serves 1)

2 handfuls spinach
2 pears, diced 
1 courgette
1/2 red bell pepper, diced 
1 tbsp mixed seeds 
1 lemon, juiced 

To your lunch box add the spinach, then the diced pear and pepper, using a peeler peel the courgette over and over to form strips. Mix in the seeds and add the lemon juice. Pop in the fridge for lunch. If left overnight the lemon juice nicely marinades the veggies. Super tasty! 

I hope you enjoy this recipe. The sweetness of the pear and the crunchy veggies make a perfect deliciously healthy lunch. Take on the go with you along with a crisp green apple and a pot of nuts. Yummy!

Courgette Noodle Steam Fry | Oil Free Gluten Free Vegan

I've been absolutely loving my steam fry's recently! They're so quick and easy, just veggies thrown in the frying pan with water and spices. In today's steam fry I used courgette turned into noodles. Just like asian noodles but made from veggies! So good!

(Serves 1)

1 medium courgette
1/2 head broccoli
100g sweetcorn
5 medium mushrooms
2 tbsp cocofina aminos (15% DISCOUNT CODE: bestfollowers http://www.cocofina.com/store/)
1" ginger
1/2 tsp oregano
few sprigs fresh parsley

In a frying pan, preferably a ceramic non stick add about 100ml water and bring to a boil. Meanwhile, using a julienne peeler create long courgette noodles and add to the pan, dice the mushroom and broccoli and add also, along with the sweetcorn, add more water if needed. Once well combined and at a raging boil, stirring frequently add the cocofina aminos and oregano, then grate the ginger into the mix too. Once all soft and well combined serve topped with fresh finely diced parsley.
