HEALTHY LUNCH AND DRINK IDEASS!!

By now most of our New Year’s resolutions have gone down the drain, so today im going to show you some healthy-ish recipes to kickstart a healthier lifestyles

1. MINT CUCUMBER LEMONADE

Now these drinks aren’t the healthiest but they are better than having coke or sprite. This first drink may seem a bit weird but it is amazing!

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

– A quarter of a cucumber

– A handful of leaves from a mint bush

-5 Tablespoons of lemon juice

-1 cup of Water

– 3 teaspoons of sugar

Mash the cucumber, mint and sugar together with a spoon or fork, then add your lemon juice and water. Strain your liquid through a cocktail shaker or strainer and enjoy!  

2. STRAWBERRY MANGO LEMONADE

As you guys have probably noticed I’ve become quite obsessed with lemonade, as ive been longing for summer and this drink looks and tastes amazing ( it seriously reminds me of kool aid!! )and it also makes around 3/4 glasses

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

-Two bags of strawberry mango tea ( i used twinings)

-A handful of strawberries

-6 Tablespoons of Lemon Juice

-3Tablespoons of sugar

Make you tea in a bowl and put it in the fridge to cool down while you mix the rest of the ingredients together. Cut up your handful of strawberries into small cubes ,and in a jug mix the rest of your ingredients. Once your tea in cooled add it in along with the strawberries and tada, a tumblr drink that tastes as good as it looks.

3. CHICKEN HONEY MUSTARD SANDWHICH

I thought I’d show you this recipe because it is my favourite sandwich combo and I eat it religiously, sandwiches can become boring on a day-to-day basis and by the end of the week were eating mouldy bread with a scrap of ham ( ok maybe now that bad, but you get the idea!) so hopefully this recipe will help you get inspiration for those boring sandwiches.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

-A tomato

-A handful of spinach leaves

-2 tablespoon of honey and 1 3/4 tablespoons of mustard ( for the dressing!) ((optional))

– Choice of meats ( chicken, turkey, ham )

– Mozerella cheese

– Wholemeal bread

I like to toast my bread to stop it getting soggy, and mix the honey and mustard to make the spread, then layer on your topping however you like but make sure to put the tomato in between to stop bread becoming soggy

SNACKS

STRAWBERRY MINI MUFFINS

This recipe makes around 36 muffins so you can make these at the start of the week and have all your snacks for the week stored.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

– 12- 14 Strawberries

–  2 cups flour

-12cup sugar

– 1tablespoon of baking powder

–  12teaspoon salt

–  34cup alomnd milk

– 2 teaspoons of vanilla

Heat up your oven to 180C and spray your muffin pan with pam. In a large bowl mix the sugar,flour and baking powder. In a medium bowl mix the eggs, almond milk, vanilla, cocount oil. Combine the two mixtures together and pour into the muffin pans. Chop up your strawberries into slivers and lay on top of the mixtures and bake for around 15 minutes and allow to cool.

3. BANANA AND CREAM CHEESE STUFFED FRENCH TOAST

Sounds kinda weird right? Maybe but i finally had the courage to try these bad boys last week and i wasn’t disappointed! These take a little bit longer than the rest ( about 15 minutes ) but are well worth it! You can also use the leftover bananas from the last recipe

Place the slices of bread together to form your sandwich! In a bowl whisk the egg, milk and vanilla. Place your sandwich in the eggy mixture, flipping over to cover both sides. Spray a pan and cook your sandwich on both sides until golden brown. Top with sugar and anything you like.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

– Can of cinnamon rolls

Open the can of cinnamon rolls and spray your waffle maker with cooking spray, place each roll and close the waffle maker. When they’re done finish with the icing that comes in the can.
