Dateless energy balls + LUNCHBOX IDEAS

BACK TO SCHOOL TIME ALREADY?! WHAT!!

I understand knowing what to pack for school, work, uni can be a daily struggle especially when wanting to keep it as healthy and light as possible.

It can be so much easier to grab the chocolate bar, the cheese toastie on white bread or the 7-11 doughnut with your coffee BUT unfortunately having a healthy lunchbox is key to not only feeling great but performing great! Which is exactly what we need when spending the day working hard.

Healthy meals can be labeled in society as complicated, time consuming and expensive. I know this because that is exactly what i thought before joining the bandwagon myself!

SO I am here to show you some of my favourite lunchbox recipes that are SUPER QUCIK, EASY AND DON’T BLOW THE BUDGET.

Eating a good diet shouldn’t be for the rich and famous or a high class chefs. It should and CAN BE accessible to everyone.

Here I will give you two NEW easy lunch box recipes as well as some already existing blog recipes that would also be perfect for any work, school and uni bag.

VEGGIE WRAPS
YOU WILL NEED:
  • 1 wholemeal/rye/vegetable wrap (make sure you go to the ingredients list on the label, if it has more than 4, try and find one with less ingredients. The more ingredients= more preservatives)
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 tbs of Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 lemon (using the juice)
  • Tomato
  • Red onion
  • 1/3 cup of black beans
  • Ice berge lettuce

First things first, were going to make a yummy avocado mixture to place into our wraps. In a small mixing bowl squeeze half of the juice out from your lemon. Place avocado into the same bowl and smash together using a folk.

Finely chop your red onion and tomato. Add into smashed avocado bowl and combine together.

Now to assembly our wrap. Spread your dijon mustard evenly onto wrap bread. Place your ice berg lettuce on top of mustard and then your smash avocado on top of that. For the finish touch evenly place your black beans on top of avocado layer. Now wrap it up!

Perfect for any quick lunchbox!
