Back to school
So its back to school and routine
for the majority of us this week, and although its quite stressful to leave the
bliss of summer holidays behind, where the only rule was that there were no
rules, dinner at 9pm was ok and so was sleeping in till 10. I think its
nice to have routine again, and however stressful and hectic your lives may be,
it can be made better by looking after yourself. I know that when we feel
overwhelmed the last thing we think about is eating well, but its truly the
most important thing.
Never before have we been so busy,
our western lives driven by haste and in turn convenience mean that the
majority of the population turn to processed quick fixes in order to feed the
With a little organization, this can
be different, your story can read like this ...' the kids lunch boxes were the
envy of the school yard, my lunch was amazing and I felt fabulous and nourished
after enjoying it'..
All it takes are some simple tools,
knowing what it is you are making, having the ingredients on hand, and taking
the time to make it. The truth is, it's usually quicker than going to the lunch
So what can you do differently this
week, what can you have in your lunch that will make you feel amazing?. Organic fresh produce is a great start, and so
is increasing the amount of fresh produce. Why not try varying your diet and
including new foods, making sure that everyday you and your family eat a
rainbow. (that is a variety of different coloured foods).
If time is truly against you, nature
have the answer, making lunch orders easy by perfectly packing produce in its
own delicious skin. Just grab some carrots, some cucumbers (add a pinch
of salt for perfection), grab a couple plums, bag of grapes and a
banana...delicious, nutritious and easy. Nuts for afternoon tea, with
some goji berries...
These actions, however small will
ensure that your life is changed for the better.
So what's for lunch? How about
Rice paper rolls, made in a flash, the kids
will love them, let them fill them with their favourite vegetables.
Avocado Salad, this can be made with
whatever you have on had, diced with avocado, and dressed.
