With only 1 hour of preparation on the weekend, you can eat a healthy breakfast for the rest of the week!

A busy life can make eating healthy every day a real challenge. With only one hour of preparation on the weekend, you can eat healthy for the rest of the week. We provide easy to make recipes for breakfast, snacks, lunch and dinner for an entire week to prepare in just 1 hour. With vegetarian and vegan options. All recipes are high in protein, healthy complex carbs, unsaturated fats, high in fiber, and full of vitamins and minerals. (Lose weight by eating more fiber). A freezer and microwave come in handy! (Freezing and reheating your meals lower the amount of carbs in your meals)

Breakfast recipe 1: Overnight Oats

Ingredients for 2 days:

-          500 grams low fat cottage cheese

-          4  table spoons rolled oats

-          2  table spoons linseed

-          200 grams blueberries

 Vegetarian/ vegan alternative:

Nutritional value per portion: 258  kcal/ 3 grams fat (of which 0,8 grams saturated)/ 30 grams carbs/ 24 grams  protein/ 5 grams fiber. Nutritional value per portion of the vegetarian/  vegan alternative: 269 kcal / 10,7 grams fat (of which 1,7 grams saturated)/  29,1 grams carbs/ 11,6 grams protein/ 4,7 grams fiber. The vegan alternative contains more unsaturated fat and less protein.
