- by siteadmin
School is starting soon and while the excitement of a new semester starts to set in, you may find yourself thinking about what will be on your plate during this time. The good news is that there are plenty of healthy recipes out there for back-to-school lunches and dinners. In this blog post, we will talk about how you can plan ahead by making hearty meals that will fuel your brainpower and keep you feeling satisfied!
The first tip is to plan ahead. This means making a grocery list and meal plans before you head out on your shopping trip. By thinking about what you are going to eat during the week, not only will it save you time but also money! Thereâ€™s nothing worse than walking in circles around the supermarket when hunger sets in because you forgot an ingredient for your meal.

Some of our favorite back-to-school breakfast ideas include muffins (our blueberry oatmeal protein ones are perfect!), cereal bars with fruit on them, yogurt parfaits with granola + berries, overnight oats in mason jars, chia seed pudding bowls the list goes on! For lunch and/or dinner recipes that will leave you feeling satisfied but not bloated after eating it all? You need some hearty soups like chicken tortilla soup, minestrone soup, creamy pumpkin curry lentil stew. We also love to make big batches of our favorite meals like this vegan buddha bowl, spicy black bean sweet potato chili, and these delicious veggie quesadillas.
