5 Ultimate Ways to Supercharge Your Meals
One of the trends (and there are many!) that I've noticed over the past few years is that the time poor, in particular, are the ones who struggle the most with finding their version of healthy. I know it's become a cliché, but life really does get in the way sometimes, which is why I like to try to pack as much nutrition into my meals and snacks as possible. So, even on a busy day, at least I've been able to fuel my body with some wholesome goodness.
Let your meals do the hard work for you by supercharging them with nourishing ingredients. You can take a simple bowl of porridge more nutritious by adding in some super nourishing ingredients that are great for your body.
Transforming how you create your meals can really give your body a healthy boost without you even trying. It really can be as simple as sprinkling some seeds on top of your stir-fry.
Here are 5 ultimate ways you can supercharge your meals to scale up the nutrition without exerting any extra energy:
1. Mix 2 Grains Together
Why just serve plain rice with your curry? Why not give the rice a healthier kick and getting the best of both worlds by mixing through some quinoa for some added nutrition and wholesome goodness.
2. Sprinkle Seeds Onto Your Meals
Seeds are a powerhouse of nutrition and can not only add flavour and texture to a dish, but also their added health benefits. Next time you make a stir-fry, smoothie or your avocado on toast, sprinkle on some pumpkin seeds
3. Make the Most of Pulses and Beans
So underrated, but pulses and beans are great for your health and a perfect plant-based protein source. Add them to a curry, salads, stews and soups – there is just so much that you can do with them. Why not swap your usual croutons on your soup for some roasted chickpeas to give it an easy protein boost.
4. Add Extra Vegetables to Your Cooking
Bulking out your meals with extra vegetables not only makes them go further, which is great from a budget aspect, but it’s also a wonderful way to inject some extra vitamins and minerals into your everyday.
5. Make Friends With Nut Butters
Nut butters are very popular these days and there is a lot of choice out there other than the humble peanut butter. They’re a fantastic source of healthy fats, which help to keep you fuller for longer. Almond butter on wholemeal toast is a tasty on the go breakfast and you even make some healthy treats with them too.
