After I went on a 30 minute jog and did a core workout, I hopped in the shower. When I got out, I only had 15 minutes before my virtual finance midterm was going to start and FREAKED. I was starving and I wanted to eat something nourishing and healthy during this time crunch. I quickly whipped up this super easy #MACRO-balanced salad 🥗. It took me five minutes to make. Here is what I used:
🐟 1 can of #wildplanet tuna
🥑 1 avocado
🥕 2 carrots chopped
🌿 bed of arugula
🍋 1/2 lemon squeezed
🧂 and pepper for taste
Pro tip: make sure you wash your pre-washed greens *AGAIN* during this time because of all that is going on with #covid19
I also had half a serving of protein powder and cocoa powder with vanilla coconut milk after to help my muscles recover from my workout. It was like a little 🍨 dessert !
See, you can still eat clean and healthy even when you are pressed for time. I satisfied all of the essential macronutrients (protein, carbohydrate, and fat) and was able to have a clear mind during my exam and not have a blood sugar crash. I encourage you to also try out this meal. I would love to hear what healthy meals you prepare during time crunches like these.
