Lately, I have been posting some of my amazing healthy meals to my Instagram stories before or after my workouts. Not only do they look great and colourful, but the taste equally amazing! So far I have posted three of my fave easy meals that take under ten minutes to prepare and have lots of flavour and nutrients for what you need to fuel your body back up after a sweat sesh!
I will work on taking better photos of these dishes for next time, but this is what I have so far! These are just some ideas of my favourite snacks that are very quick to make. Here are the recipes:
Strawberry Spinach Salad (Best Ever)
2 cups of baby spinach
3 medium strawberries
1/4 yellow pepper
3 inches of cucumber
2 tbsp of red onion
2 tbsp of feta
a handful of sliced almonds
a drizzle of honey balasmic glaze
a drizzle olive oil & lemon juice
Add all the ingredients into a bowl, mix up. You can fan out your avocado if you want to be fancy like me! Then drizzle honey balsamic dressing on top with lemon juice to add a bit of tang! I eat this vegetarian, or I also love to add cajun spiced chicken to it for extra protein!
Approximately 300 calories
1/2 diced avocado
1 tsp lime juice
3 cherry tomatoes
2 small pieces of sourdough bread (or sub-out for whole grain bread)
1 tbsp hemp seeds
1/2 tsp sriracha
Okay, so this doesn’t take much explanation but dice up the avocado, put the lime juice on it, and mix it around in a bowl until the avocado is coated. Toast your bread, I like mine pretty toastyyy. Put mixture on toast. Slice up the tomatoes and throw em on! Then top with some hemp seeds and a small dash of sriracha for more flavour and you’re done! A quick hearty snack with no cooking necessary! You can also add bacon or poached eggs to make it a larger meal/breakfast!

Tuna & Rye Crackers
1 whole can of canned tuna in water
1tbsp of mayo
1/3 stalk of celery
4 slices of tomato
1/4 tsp of lemon pepper
1/2 tsp of sriracha
2 rye crackers
Empty and rinse the can of tuna, then mix with the mayo. Add lemon pepper and chopped up celery all together in a bowl. Take the two rye crackers and put tomato on the bottom, then add the tuna mixture and top with sriracha sauce. You may also add some pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds on top to make it more hearty. This one is usually quite filling because it is a whole can of tuna. Lots of protein!!

I really hope these recipes help keep you motivated and interested in eating healthy! I struggle sometimes with finding recipes and dishes that I enjoy eating. I live a pretty busy life, so anything that is quick really helps! I will definitely be posting more delicious meals on my Instagram so please come and check me out and give me a follow!
