This week I am traveling a lot for work so this usually means room service to go alongside with lots of late night TV and lots of coffee (it is my self appointed job to try all cafes whilst traveling the length of NZ).
But no more my friends.
I am a grown up naturopath this week so I am going prepared with the following:
– A bag of pre frozen banana protein pancakes (recipe on website). Easy to throw into hotel freezer and take out as needed.
– Smoothie Mix (Vanilla pea protein, Chia seeds, sugar free strawberry drinking mix (found in tea aisle in supermarket. This guy is awesome.)
– Otago Chocolate Company 77% dark chocolate
– Small bag of chia seeds
– Small bag of coconut powder (to make up some coconut milk while I am away)
– Almond butter – I can combine all of above for chia pudding when I can not be bothered thinking of what to eat.
– Canned tuna (the pole and line caught stuff – cheap as from Countdown)
– Ceres Organics Rice cakes (can top with almond butter, tuna or bananas)
– Microwavable quinoa and rice blend (I am not a fan of the microwave but this is handy).
– Walnut oil (I saw it and really really wanted it. I have no idea what to do with it so this is the week I will use it. On something…)
Teeccino Java tea bags. This is a herbal coffee alternative but unlike every other coffee alternative this one actually tastes amaze. I love it.
So this list covers my worst temptation meal times – breakfast, the in-between lunch and dinner time, and the dreaded after dinner I’m bored time.
Also I have easy dinners too; just have to venture to the supermarket and grab some lettucey stuff.
Anyway the above can be translated into something you guys could do for work daily. Most of it can be kept in a desk for emergencies.
Also – here is a nice Hummus recipe for you from my BRAND new cookbook (don’t tell Jed).
Deliciously Ella by Ella Woodward
2 cans of chickpeas (drained)
10 tablespoons olive oil
Juice of 2 lemons (I hate that as a measurement so I say 4 tbs)
2 tablespoons tahini
3 cloves garlic
2 teaspoons cumin
Salt and pepper
Place everything into the food processor; add 3 tablespoons of water and process. Blend until smooth. You can store this in the fridge for up to a week.
Variation on a theme:
Beetroot – add in one small raw beetroot that has been peeled and chopped
Hummus is super you can use it on pretty much everything. Except cocoa puffs – trust me on this one.
Have a great week.
