‘If you’re super busy but still want to maintain a healthy lifestyle, perhaps slim down a little and just feel good in your skin… This is how I meal prep in under 30 minutes,’ she said in an Instagram video.
‘If you find meal prepping overwhelming and time-consuming, have a look at this prep breakdown.’
First she prepared three servings of the vegetarian Mexican salad in as little as five minutes and placed a paper towel on top of the food.
‘With the paper towel, it basically helps absorb some of the humidity coming from the veggies so it keeps them fresher for longer,’ she said in the clip.
For her second lunch meal she prepared two serves of mango chicken from Aldi with coconut rice and broccolini, which she admitted tastes ‘so good’ (left). For breakfast she made coconut, lemon and blueberry oats (right)
