Tips

 Once home and if time permits, wash your spinach and kale, dry them remove stalk and stems and freeze them. Repeat the same for the forest fruits and store them together on your freezer shelf so you can make a quick smoothie.

 

Get a baking tray, add some oil, wash, peel and and chop some carrots, sweet potato and parsnips, add some olive oil, seasoning and some dried herbs say sage and oregano and roast them to have handy. You can then grill a piece of fish to have a quick meal.

 

Boil or poach two eggs to have handy for a quick salad, wrap etc and make some quinoa. At least you have a few ingredients to make a quick meal.
