When deciding what to eat for the day, in the Western world we tend to put more emphasis on our evening meal as our ‘main’ meal of the day. However, it’s important that where possible we aim to spread out our energy intake throughout the day to allow our body to digest our food properly in between meals and to get an even distribution of nutrients such as fibre and protein to provide us with energy, and to promote growth and repair, especially if we’re more active.
Although, something that many people struggle with is a lack of time at lunch - whether that be because of a short lunch break, or perhaps if you have a job when you’re on the go all the time. However - a little bit of planning can go a long way! A good tip to remember is to cook once, eat twice which could mean doubling up on portions or simply using leftovers from the night before!
