GREEK YOGHURT

Buy individual 170g pots and store in fridge. They last a while, perfect to mix with things and ideal for breakfast mixed with nuts & berries or as a healthy snack.

 

NUTS

These will last for a while in any cupboard or fridge. Always opt for whole nuts and keep portions to one handful. Almonds, Walnuts, Brazil nuts and Hazelnuts are great to grab on the go or add to yoghurts, shakes, add some crunch to a soup or with a salad.

 

PROTEIN BARS

Perfect to keep in your bag, cupboards, office. Will help you with chocolate cravings and can provide 20g protein. The best ones on the market are Quest bars (You’ll have to buy online), or check out my recipe’s in my eBook.

 

LOW SUGAR FRUIT

Fruit is great for vitamins, minerals, fibre and loads more nutrition. However, many are high in sugar and will slow down any fat burning potential. Your best bet is to always opt for low sugar fruits such as blueberries, strawberries & raspberries. Buying the frozen packs are excellent to store in the freezer sp you always have some in stock and they are much cheaper too. Adding lemons / limes to water or squeezing it on salads or stir frys will add a fab flavour and become alkaline in the body.

 

COLD COOKED MEATS / SEAFOOD

Whether you do batch cook a load of chicken breasts on a Sunday or grab some pre-cooked ones, these are great for grabbing quickly. Along with other sliced cooked meat such as ham, turkey, beef or king prawns, smoked salmon slices. Snack on its own with some nuts or add to a load of chopped veggies.

 

RAW CHOPPED SALAD / VEGGIES

You can easily buy some pre chopped, sliced veggies such as peppers, celery, carrots, salad bowls, cherry tomatoes or buy a load on your next shop and chop them all up into strips and keep in plastic containers in the fridge. When steaming / cooking veg for dinner, make a portion too many and put in a container in the fridge ready to take with you the next day.

 

NATURAL NUT BUTTERS

Natural nut butter (with nothing else added like salt, preservatives) are great for healthy fats and an energy boost. A tablespoon of nut butter with a few celery stalks or apple slices will provide a nutrition packed snack.

 

 

ALL OF THESE SUGGESTIONS ARE QUICK, LAST A WHILE, HEALTHY AND WILL HELP YOU STAY ON TOP OF YOUR FAT BURNING GOALS.

 

REMEMBER:

 

FAIL TO PREPARE AND PREPARE TO FAIL

 

HOW MUCH DO YOU WANT YOUR GOALS??

 

ABS ARE MADE IN THE KITCHEN,

SO GET YOUR SHOPPING TROLLEY NAILED!
