Looking for some healthy meal inspiration?
The biggest problem around mealtime is…preparing. We’ve all been guilty of trying to put together a balanced meal at the last minute and then giving up and ordering pizza. In 2021 meal prepping is the goal! It’s so important when you’re working from home to make sure you’re eating the right foods to keep you energized and focused. Otherwise, we end up taking a midday nap right after our lunch break.
Munchy Crunchy Protein Snacks are a great addition to any snack stash because the single-serving packages are packed with 16g of plant protein! Just throw it over your favorite salad or add it to your veggie wrap for an extra crunch. This is also the perfect pre or post-workout treat. With flavors like Salted Caramel, Rockin’ Ranch, and Chillin’ Chipotle – these single-serving packs are great to add to your workout bag or to munch on between Zoom meetings.
Check out these delicious healthy meals you can make yourself at home:
1. Chillin’ Chipotle Buddha Bowl
1 Package of Munchy Crunchy Chillin’ Chipotle Snacks
1 Ripe Mango (should be soft and fragrant!)
1 Lime, juice
2 cup Cooked Black Beans (rinse if using canned)
1/2 bunch Kale, cut into bite-sized pieces
2/3 cup Chopped Cilantro
Chop the Mango, Cilantro, Kale, and Avocado. Rinse the black beans if you are using canned. Gently steam the Kale for 2-3 minutes using a steamer, or simply sauté in a pan over medium heat with a splash of water, until all water has dissolved and the kale is bright green and tender. Divide the Munchy Crunchy Chillin’ Chipotle Snacks, Kale, Quinoa, Beans, Avocado, Mango, and Cilantro equally between two bowls, then top each bowl with the juice of 1/2 of a Lime. Serve immediately, or store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 1 week.
2. Salted Caramel Mango Lassi
2 whole, ripe mangoes or 1 cup no-sugar-added frozen mango
1 cup plain whole-milk or vegan yogurt
¼ cup water
5 ice cubes
Tiny pinch coarse salt
Pinch ground cardamom (optional)
½ tablespoon sugar or to taste (optional)
Top with Salted Caramel Munchy Crunchy Protein snack!
Chop the mango into cubes. In a blender, combine mango, yogurt, water, ice cubes, salt and cardamom (if using). Make sure the lid is fit tightly onto the blender. Start on low speed and gradually work up to the highest setting. Count to 20. Turn off the blender and use a long-handled spoon to check the flavor and consistency; the lassi should be thick and smooth, with no chunks of ice. If desired, add sugar and return the lid to blend again. Drink shortly after making.
3. Rockin’ Ranch Cauliflower Wrap
1 Package Rockin’ Ranch Munchy Crunchy Protein Snacks
1 Cup Chopped Cherry Tomatoes
1 Cup Roasted Cauliflower
¼ Cup Pitted Olives
¼ Cup Sunflower Seeds
¼ Cup Israeli Couscous
1 flour tortilla (or naan, if you’d like)
2 tbsp chopped cilantro
1 tsp olive oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash and chop all produce. Put cauliflower on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil and salt. Roast 15 minutes or until browned a bit. Take your tortilla or naan and place all ingredients in the center. Top off with Rockin’ Ranch Munchy Crunchy Protein Snacks and sunflower seeds. Roll it up and enjoy!
