Question: do you ever have days where you go at break-neck speed to get it all done, then realise it’s WAY later in the day than you thought it was?
That was my day today!
That’s when I realised I’d been running on empty for hours, whoops!
Practising what I preach, I quickly pulled together a yummy stir fry using leftovers and fresh veggies I got from Union Square Green Market yesterday.
The point of this post?
Choose real over fake food every time – even when you’re starving and can’t be bothered to cook!
It doesn’t take long to throw a few things in the fry pan or steamer.
Don’t sweat it if all you have is veg in the fridge – did you know broccoli, cauliflower, spinach and kale all contain great amounts of plant protein?
When you’re strapped for time, cook up some veggies and add a handful of organic pumpkin or sunflower seeds with a glug of extra virgin olive oil and you have yourself a well-rounded plant-based, protein-packed meal!!
