It is the season to be outdoors and running in some beautiful fresh air and sunshine! With plenty of trail run events and triathlons coming up over the next few months it is a great time to be doing some running training. Whether you are a seasoned runner, a professional athlete or a complete newbie to running, with the nice weather (fingers crossed) coming our way it is a great time to get outside on to the trails for a run.
ANZAC day is coming up and I have lots of clients who love making or eating ANZAC cookies around this time of year.
Below are a couple of oat-based cookie recipes that are slightly different to the traditional ANZAC cookies, but they are just as yum and boast a range of healthy benefits, such as:
- being high in fibre
- lots of good fats
- absolute no table sugar in them at all!
- low GI for long lasting energy
Find yourself in a hurry a lot and need a quick go to meal or snack that packs a nutritious punch?
Then make up a bunch of these easy muffin-sized frittatas, stick them in your freezer and grab 1 or 2 of them as you need, for a super quick and healthy meal!
One of the most common thing I see in clinic is that clients eat really well at all their main meals, but then slip up when it comes to snacking – they undo a lot of their hard work by snacking on highly processed junk foods.
I get it, snacking on veggie sticks and dip and fresh fruit can get a bit boring, and lets face it, these foods don’t feel like a treat. It’s only human to want a treat every now and then!
Making and baking healthy snacks can be very time consuming, and lots of people start off with great intentions of making lots of healthy snacks to always have on hand, but sometimes life just gets in the way and we run out of time.
So what is the answer to delicious yet quick and simple healthy snacks options??
