Living through a pandemic is stressful. So, if you’ve been reaching for that bag of chips and cookies more than once a day, I won’t blame you.
Yet, even in these days of uncertainty, we mustn’t forget that this isn’t a vacation. Even at home, we must maintain a proper routine. Following your daily workout, sleeping 8 hours a day, and eating healthy!
For that last part, here are some recipes on offer to help you indulge when times get tough, without letting you worry about your waistline.
1. Strawberries Romanoff
A bowl of Strawberries romanoff recipe packs a whopping 140 calories, so you can happily indulge in a serving without stressing out about the extra sweetness. Light and creamy with a subtle hint of tart and sugar from these strawberries, this recipe is an early morning treat that’ll have you energized for the day ahead.
2. Crispy Spicy Roasted Chickpeas
Chickpeas are a popular healthy snack, so you’re safe here. The recipe only uses four ingredients, including chickpeas, and takes about 5 – 10 minutes, making it a perfect midnight snack or just something to snack on while working from home.
3. Sweet Green Smoothie
Never tried one? Start with this delicious smoothie that’s made using a combination of fruits and vegetables. Using apples, kiwi, avocado, mint, almond milk, and a bunch of other ingredients, I was able to come up with a healthy morning smoothie that slides down smooth and doesn’t taste too much like kale or spinach, just fresh deliciousness!
4. Vegetarian Migas Tacos
This recipe is a vegetarian variation of the classic meaty taco. But be warned, this also uses one tablespoon of cream and Monterey Jack Cheese. So, you may want to skip having this delicious feast at one in the morning. Instead, make a bunch for dinner and freeze the mixture, so you can munch on one in the days to come. This recipe uses onions, avocadoes, jalapenos, tomatoes, garlic, and eggs to give it that satisfying, fulfilling taste, so you can be sure you won’t get tired of them any time soon.
