5-min healthy eating -Day 4

I hope you are enjoying your healthy eating! If you’ve been reading the blog but not yet manage to start then don’t worry. Life is busy and it can be hard to make lifestyle changes. But stay positive and try to improve one thing at a time. 

Breakfast: Melon slices with frozen mango and berry yogurt 

  

Prep: 5-min 

Ingredients: 

2-4 melon slices 

1/4 cup plain or Greek yogurt 

50ml soya milk (or any other milk)

1/4 cup frozen mango (or any other frozen fruit) 

1/4 cup frozen berries 

1-2 tbsp mixed seeds and nuts or crushed seeds and nuts

Preparation: 

Slice the melon. 

Blend the frozen fruit, milk and yogurt in a blender. You might need to cut the mango pieces smaller or allow the fruit to defrost a bit. 

   
 Pour frozen yogurt over the melon. Sprinkle your seeds and nuts over the yogurt.   

I used milled linseed with goji berries, sunflower and pumpkin seeds.

  

If you have leftover frozen fruit yogurt pour it into shot glasses either as a snack or I’ll show you in a few days time what you can do with it. 

  

Snack: Courgette and carrot rolls 

  

Prep: 5-min 

Ingredients:

1 carrot (you will use some for the snack and some for your lunch)

1 courgette (you will use some for the snack and some for your lunch)

Hummus (you will use some for the snack and some for your lunch)

Toothpicks 

Preparations: 

Use a vegetable peeler and peel the courgette and carrot into long pieces. 

Spread hummus onto the peelings.

Roll the peelings up into a roll and push a toothpick in to hold it in place.  

Lunch: Chrisp bread or crackers with toppings

Now I know you think. “There’s no way I’ll get these topped crackers to work without it all ending up in a big mess”. But it is possible! See how I did it at the end!

So how do you get it to work? 

Place an extra Chrisp bread on top of you finished Chrisp breads.

Place your Chrisp bread sandwich on a piece of backing paper.

  
Fold it over and pull it tight.

Stick the edge together with a sticker or sellotape.

  
You can also use foil to make little parcels.
