Are you one of those people who does hours of prepping and planning on Sundays? You cook up whole cooks and get your zip-lock bag smoothie mixes all ready in the freezer. You have colour coded containers for each day of the week's lunches and have enough chopped vegetables for Africa.
Good for you. Me? I've got no time for that!
Honestly though, I do do a little bit of pre-work on Sundays but it's mainly in the snack department because the rest of the week is really quite simple. I have porridge or a smoothie most mornings, a typical meat and 3 veg type meal for dinner and make plenty for lunches the next day. No prepping required. Most weeks I make it even easier on myself and get My Food Bag to take care of the planning - lunches and dinners are sussed! But snacks, they can be tricky.
I don't snack very often but occasionally I like a little something in the late afternoon. Sunday is my day to make my bliss balls, protein bars or other snacks and honestly takes me about an hour total (if that).
This week I made a couple of yummy treats for myself including Kelly Gibney's GF Cheddar, Sweet Potato and Spring Onion Loaf (So good).
I also made chocolate truffles to go with my afternoon cuppa because I had some extra time. These were so easy and deliciously creamy.
Raw Chocolate Truffles (or slice)
1 cup almond butter
1 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup cacao powder
1/3 cup Nuzest Vanilla Clean Lean Protein
pinch of sea salt
Melt the almond butter and coconut oil on medium heat. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Pour into a square baking paper-lined baking pan and allow to cool or cool the mixture in the fridge first and then form into balls once hardened.
I'll admit they are a bit difficult to shape into balls so if you don't have time, cutting them into squares and sprinkling with coconut or cacao powder is a super quick option.
