Coming Home to Real Meals! nom nom
You have been traveling for weeks. Have been on a plane for 15 hours or more. You are bloated from airport food. You're exhausted and just want to take a shower, sit in your house, and eat something CLEAN.
Three ways to have a yummy and healthy meal without going to the grocery store the day you get home!
Meal Delivery Services
There are many out there, so choose which best suits your eating habits! Personally, if I can drink my meal, that makes me happy. Bonus points if I don't have to cook it right away.
Solution: Daily Harvest
They are flash frozen, pre-assembled smoothies and chia bowls. Add either a milk (I use almond) or a water (I use coconut), blend, and boom. Dinner is served.
Love that they stay frozen until I am ready to make them too. No pressure to cook when the meal arrives. I am lazy and picky like that.
Old Fashioned Oatmeal
It keeps forever in the pantry. It is incredibly good for you, so "they" say. It is filling and delicious. I jazz mine up with chia seeds and goji berries (rehydrate both in hot water for at least 30 minutes). Or, use whatever dried fruit you like!
An oldie but a goodie.
Find what works for you, as long as all the ingredients can stay in the pantry or freezer.
My Recipe: Frozen banana, ice, protein powder, 1/2 unsweetened almond milk (the kind you buy in the non-refrigerated aisle), 1/2 water, teaspoon coconut oil, teaspoon molasses.
There are a bajillion protein powders out there. I tend to use anything that is organic and plant based. Read a few articles about choosing the right powder for you, if you are interested.
