Keep up the food prep!

How is your diet going now that you are home a lot more? It’s easy to loose the good habits while our normal routines have been taken away and we are feeling a bit out of sorts. I’m an avid food-prepper myself, normally I cook up a big storm at the start of the week, which then sees us through the rest of the week. I steam or bake a few types of veggies, make salads, a big pot of soup, make falafel balls or veggie patties, a healthy treat etc. All this sits in the fridge, ready for me to pick and choose and create lunches and dinners for when I’m in the clinic.

This week I decided to slack a bit, not to do any prep and just take the days one at the time, That was not such a good idea..... All week I was scrambling to stick to healthy lunches and had to think real quick at the end of the day to give us a nourishing meal, before 8 at night! I spend so much more time and energy in the kitchen! Everything seems to take more energy at the moment: navigating though the shops, comforting parents, helping children navigate through unemployment and Centrelink applications, reaching out to anxious elderly neighbours, you name it! So this week I’m back to food prepping. That will bring some stability and normality back in my week, and something creative and delicious to focus on! Happy prepping!

This is one of my favourites! So easy and so delicious!
