In between meeting with your investors, attending work briefing, and attending to customers, you must have noticed that 24-hours is almost never enough to go through the activities on your to-do list. What’s worse, you suddenly ‘remember’ that you had skipped lunch and barely had breakfast. Sounds like your routine?
Now, before you opt for fast food or an ‘affordable’ restaurant, here are 4 quick-fix lunches that will not only boost your workflow but are also cheaper, healthier, and keep your waistline trim:
Fresh Fruits and Greek Yoghurt
Don’t you dare scrunch your face before knowing how easy and fast it is to fix this dish. You’ll be needing just Greek yoghurt, fresh/dry fruits, and any sweetener of your choice (honey, maple syrup, brown sugar).
Simply place your Greek yoghurt in a bowl and stir in the sweetener. Top it with a wide variety of fresh fruit, nuts, and even dry fruits.
Psst! You can get very creative about your choice of fruits and nuts… strawberries, kiwi, pineapple, mangoes, coconuts, oranges, bananas, cashew, walnuts, dried dates… just make your pick!
Curry Chicken Salad
Sounding tasty already, right? Preparing a curry chicken salad shouldn’t take more that 15 minutes and here’s how to go about it:
Once again, you’ll be needing some Greek yoghurt which you’ll mix with lemon juice, honey, ginger, turmeric, salt, and pepper. Next, shred the chicken (roasted or cooked) and chop some onions, cashews, and carrot. Finally, toss all the ingredients in a large bowl till they are well mixed.
Guess what? You can make a large batch of salad and store in a container for up to 4 days.
Having a hard time fitting vegetables into your diet? Get your apron ready because we’re gonna spice up interest with some delectable vegetarian chili.
Start with dicing vegetables you love – zucchini, onion, pepper, and some mushrooms. Over medium-high heat, gently cook the onion with some garlic in oil, then season with chili powder, cumin, oregano powder, salt, and pepper. Add the zucchini and tomato paste. When it’s well cooked, stir in kidney and black beans.
And for the spaghetti-lover, you’ll definitely want to have spaghetti Bolognese for lunch. Simply begin by cooking the spaghetti, draining in a sieve, and drizzling a little vegetable oil to keep it from sticking together. Next, you gently fry onion and garlic over a low medium heat then add the herbs, tomatoes, vegetables, tomatoes paste and pepper. Allow it to simmer for about 30 minutes.
Now, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be looking forward to your next break. Remember, the quality of your meals determine your overall productivity Get intentional about your meals today and boost your workflow.
