I’m finally trying to take the advice I’ve been hearing for a long time – that you should spend some time on the weekend prepping food for the week ahead. I’ve been guilty of not planning for snacks or meals during the work week very well lately. I’m making a concerted effort to change that!
First up this weekend I made some almond date balls from a recipe I found in an Active.com article.I followed the recipe exactly as written, but next time I’d be inspired to try adding apricots and coconut. Or dried cherries! The possibilities are endless and they were so easy to put together. Now they are in my fridge at work, ready for when I need a healthy snack at work.
I also took the time to prep some breakfast. I put everything that I need for some overnight oats into individual containers.I have oats, cinnamon, almonds, dried cranberries and chia seeds in there. All I have to do is add in milk the night before and allow to soak in the fridge overnight. They are hanging out on the counter, just waiting for me!
What are your favourite easy snack and breakfast ideas? Do you prep them ahead on the weekend?
