Recipes and tips to help you prepare for a healthy week

At some point in the last few years, chia-seed smoothies replaced the morning coffee hit, nutrient-heavy miso replaced the humble minestrone soup, and bowls of quinoa replaced the classic BLT. Healthy is no longer the new cool, it's the norm.

On Instagram, there are 76 million posts under #healthy, with pictures of smoothie bowls and stir fries topping the list. We bet office fridges across the country have never been so full of nutritional and balanced packed lunches. 

However, being healthy is by no means an easy feat when you're strapped for time. Which is why we've pulled together 20 tips, tricks and batch recipes to help you prepare for a nutritional diet and shave hours off the working week.
