Time Saver: How To Plan Your Week

Jan 5, 2015 | Business

Steph Lowe, our resident Nutritionist shares her top ten food preparation tips to make healthy eating both easy and delicious.


  1. Wash spinach leaves or your favourite salad mix and store in the fridge to start the week.
  2. Chop vegetable sticks for a fantastic snack with nut butter or homemade guacamole.
  3. Hard-boil some eggs for a really simple high protein snack on the go.
  4. Roast vegetables in coconut oil and a touch of salt to add to your salads for extra bulk and flavour. Great choices are sweet potato, beetroot and zucchini.
  5. Bake extra chicken fillets in the oven on Monday night while making dinner – that way you’ll have enough to last until Friday!
  6. Make a double serve of a really simple stir-fry so you have leftovers for lunch the next day. All you need is coconut oil, tamari, fresh garlic, chilli, your choice of protein and whatever vegetables you like!
  7. Cook a batch of quinoa on a Sunday to add to your salads, or to make a cold bircher for a delicious sugar free breakfast option.
  8. Prepare containers of nuts and seeds so you have a quick snack ready to go, or breakfast when combined with a piece of fruit.
  9. Bake our Grain Free Chocchini Bread. We shared this recipe with you last month and it is now a huge favourite!
  10. Make a batch of ‘Egg Cups’. Simply whisk twelve eggs, salt, pepper and your favourite vegetables, pour into lightly greased muffin trays and bake for 15-20 minutes at 150°C (or until cooked through). You can really use any vegetables you like – a great way to use up those that are no longer at their optimal freshness.
