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
