Did you know – a cup of cubed butternut squash provides 582 mg of potassium, more than the amount available in a banana? This mixed with salty feta and hearty Wheatberries help to leave those after lunch sugar cravings behind.
Wednesday – Indian-Spiced Halloumi Skewers (V)
If anything’s going to lift your mood on hump day, its everyone’s favourite – halloumi. Build these skewers in minutes and grill for a smoky, aromatic flavour. Our Indian Inspired Rice & Grains make the perfect accompaniment with no extra work.
The courgette is such a versatile vegetable, but sometimes it’s best to let the flavour do the talking. They have a high-water content which is good news for hydration. Teamed with crunchy peppers and protein-packed quinoa, these wraps are a superfood saviour.
Friday – Turkey & Freekeh Burgers
Although turkey mince is lower in fats than beef, be sure to choose breast meat over thigh, as the latter is much fattier. Simply Cooked Freekeh binds the burger mixture together, while adding much needed protein and fibre. These tasty treats prove you can still have a burger without the guilt.
