Here is a healthy, quickly prepped meal for athletes. Lots of healthy carbs, plant-based protein and vitamins to fuel your training.
Why Meal Prepping?
Meal-prepping a veggie soup helps to increase your daily veggie intake.
Cook a soup and fill it into small cups. Eat one of each for lunch and dinner. It stays fresh in the fridge for a couple of days. Freeze any left-overs in small containers.
This is a variation of my basic soup recipe. Instead of starting out with onions, I replaced them with fresh ginger. Ginger does not only add a nice spicy touch, but also adds antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Saute fresh ginger in medium sized pot for a few minutes
Add 3 cups of boiling water and 1 cup of almond milk, unsweetened
Add 3 medium sized carrots and 2 cups of butternut squash
Add salt, pepper, garlic, grounded ginger and fresh herbs
Bring to boil, then reduce heat and let simmer for 15 minutes
Mix in food blender or with immersion blender until smooth.
To make it more filling and extra creamy, add a cup of beans. So you get more healthy carbs and protein as well.
