5 quick and easy on the go meals for weight loss

Often my ladies will explain that they have tried their best with their clean eating, but now and then they get caught out by their busy weeks and chose the simpler, less healthy options.

So that got me thinking…. You guys need some ideas on how to create something healthy and nutritious that is easy to make, and perfect for on the go. My ladies love some of these recipes I’m about to share with you!

Quick & Easy On-the-Go Recipes

Yes, these will take a little preparation – I’m sure you can spare 10-15 minutes, but these could provide the perfect answer to surviving a hectic day without falling for those biscuits and sugary cereal bars that you could end up choosing in a mad, low willpowered panic!

It’s happened to us all, with all the best intentions in the world it can be hard not to demolish a chocolate bar or a shop bought sandwich when you’re rushing around. That is quickly followed by instant guilt as soon as you’ve swallowed the last bite.

So I’ve got 5 fab ideas to help keep you loaded with the perfect ‘ I need to grab it quickly’ plan, that will help keep you on the straight and narrow when life may seem a little hectic.

2 Homemade ideas:

Homemade Protein Bar



  • ¼ cup Chocolate Whey
  • 1 tablespoon Coconut Flour
  • 5g Cocoa Nibs
  • 1/4 cup Water

How to:

Mix it all together until its a dough consistency. If it’s a bit dry, don’t be too tempted to add much more water, just wet your fingers and see how you go. (I’ve ruined many a recipe by adding too much water right at the end). Mould into a bar shape. You can either freeze it or chill it in the fridge straight away or bake it in the oven at 160 degrees for 5-10 mins. (5 mins Hard on outside, squidgy in middle, 10 mins bit more cooked through – I’m a 5 minute kinda person)





Mix all ingredients together.

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp psyllium husk
  • Flavourings (i.e pepper, chilli, garlic, herbs)

How to:

  1. Melt teaspoon coconut oil in a hot pan.
  2. Pour the mixture into the pan and cook for 30-40 seconds, flip over and cook the other side.
  3. Enjoy immediately or load with your favourite wrap filling for on the go.

Healthy and Convenient on-the-Go Ideas

OK, so those are great, but what if you don’t have the time to spend 10 mins prepping. You may find yourself in the supermarket and you need to know what to grab. So change your thinking about the aisles! Don’t go straight to the convenient, on the go aisle, go to the refrigerated section and look for the following. These are a few combos you can get anywhere.

  1. 1 portion size pot of Total 0% yogurt or any plain Greek yogurt (make sure it’s plain), with whole nuts (8-10) or berries
  2. Ready cooked lean meat (try sliced chicken/ham/turkey/beef) and some ready chopped carrots, a mixed bag of veggies or cherry tomatoes
  3. 1 portion size pot of cottage cheese and a packet of prawns or salmon

You are now armed with two delicious recipes you can prepare within 10-15 minutes, and three options you can choose from if you would rather run into a shop. Hopefully these options will help you on your fitness and fat loss mission whilst living in the real world!
