Three… two… one… start the races! Sometimes it feels as though the daily routine is a sort of sport… perhaps a marathon, or even a decathlon!
Either way, when you’re on the run, there’s no time to dilly-dally over-complicated meal prep. These quick gluten-free meals will simplify your life and save you loads of time for your busy lifestyle – give them a go!
Quick Brekkies for a Speedy Morning
When you’re trying to gather all of your important papers, run a comb through your children’s hair, and answer an email right-quick, the last thing you have time to do is start up the waffle iron. These Schar Gluten Free Waffles are the delicious solution to your time-pressed dilemma. Simply pair these premade waffles with a banana or sliced pear for a delicious breakfast that will leave you satiated. If time is running really low, you can throw the waffles into a little baggie and enjoy them as you’re heading to your destination.
Perhaps you’d care for something warm in the morning – a comforting cup of nourishment to prepare your body for the chilly dash out the door. This ASDA Free From Golden Syrup Flavour Porridge Pot is ideal for the task. Fill it up with some boiling water and have it ready in a mere two minutes. For the ultimate convenience, before heading to bed at night, set your portable tea mug next to the porridge pot on a visible spot on the kitchen counter. When you rouse your weary head in the morning, you’ll be thankful that you had the foresight to organise everything in one place. Tea and porridge in a flash!
We are aware that you might occasionally have one of those difficult mornings. Perhaps your alarm didn’t go off, your dog kept barking all night, or the neighbours were up to their typical rowdy hijinks into the wee hours of the morning. In these scenarios, you need a breakfast that your bleary eyes can find in the cabinet without a fuss. These Kind Breakfast Almond Butter Bars will do the trick. They’re hearty bars – substantial enough to make you feel as though you didn’t miss out on a meal.
Light Elevenses for When You Need to Nosh
When it’s eleven in the morning and you have an appointment set for noon, you might need some “elevenses” to tide you over. Tuck these Nairn’s Gluten Free Oatcakes into your workaday bag for a fast and satisfying treat. Pair them with a handful of almonds for a full profile of carbs, proteins, and healthy fats.
Or, if you want some spice in your life, but you need to nibble on the run, consider a portable cup of Naked Free From Thai Green Curry Rice. This rice bowl will leave your tongue quite energized, almost as though it’s been on holiday to an exotic locale.
The Kabuto Noodles Vegetable Laksa is another ideal choice to add some oomph to your day out. So long as you have access to some fresh water and microwave or teapot, you can enjoy this fragrant pot flavoured with an invigorating blend of garlic, ginger, and chilli.
Hearty Lunches or Dinners
Although you’re in a rush, you can still enjoy filling gluten-free meals during lunch or dinnertime. Try imagining yourself at a gorgeous Italian ristorante as you enjoy the Schar Bontà d Italia Gluten Free 4 Mini Pizza Margherita. If you don’t have access to an oven, just bake these the day before, refrigerate them for a day, then microwave them the next evening for that “fresh pizza” taste.
Or, if you want to accomplish a major part of your “health checklist” whilst savouring a quick lunch or dinner, consider the Foodologie 5 A Day Burrito Bowl Plant Pot. You’ll achieve all five of your “five a day” in one fell swoop – how’s that for convenience?!
A hearty on-the-go meal is also within reach with the Soulful Brazilian Tomato & Black Bean with Cashews & Quinoa. This quick pot presents a balance of nutrients, including protein and fibre, for a “square meal in a round tub.” Especially delightful is the coconut flavour mixed with a hint of jalapeño!
