ARE YOU UP FOR EATING HEALTHY BUT YOU CAN NOT SPEND A LOT OF TIME ON IT? HERE ARE 5 QUICK AND HEALTHY RECIPES FOR BUSY PEOPLE LIKE YOU!

One of my very good friends’ resorts in microwaved food or take away because he can not come up with ideas of what to cook every day. He asked me to give him a list of healthy meals he can make during the week and this definitely improved his diet as well as his cooking experience!

I am one of those people that finds cooking a creative, easy and fun task. My usual daily ritual when I arrive home from work is to have a shower, ask Alexa to play my favourite radio station and start my way of energetic meditation – cooking!

It’s my weird way of having fun and winding down after busy and stressful days…!

Many people I talk with, don’t have the time for such a weird meditation strategy but they need something quick and healthy on the table without too much fuss.

Following on from this, I have put together 5 of my quick and healthy vegetarian recipe ideas for you to make during the week. Make sure you make enough to take with you for lunch at work the next day!
