Recipe: Nutritious Travel Meal

It's quite tricky to eat healthily when travelling. Airports, planes, and train stations are certainly not known for their wide selection of nutritious meals and healthy snacks. The only way around this one is to rock up super prepared, making sure that you have a substantial meal and snacks to hand to fuel your travels! We've put together a simple salad recipe for you guys that can easily be transported in a Kilner Jar or Tupperware. 

Ingredients

For the Salad... 

  • 1 cup of quinoa 
  • 1 sweet potato 
  • 1 grated beetroot 
  • A handful of spinach 
  • Pumpkin seeds 
  • 2 teaspoons of coconut oil 
  • A sprinkling of cinnamon 

For the Dressing... 

  • 1 tablespoon of vegan pesto 
  • 1 teaspoon of tahini 
  • The juice of 1/2 a lemon  

 Directions 

1. Boil your quinoa for about 10-15 minutes until tender and set aside to cool. 

2. Peel and cube your sweet potato and place it on a baking tray drizzled with coconut oil and a sprinkling of cinnamon. Oven roast your cubes for about 20 minutes at 180°C, giving them a good shake around every now and again. When they are cooked and slightly crispy, remove from oven and leave to cool.

3. Prepare your dressing by mixing the pesto, tahini, and lemon juice together. 

4. Layer up your salad, starting with the dressing, and working your way up. 

5. You can then refrigerate your salad so that it's ready to grab before you set off on your travels. When you're ready to eat, simply give everything a good old shake! 

6. Enjoy! :) 

This formula is super flexible, so feel free to just use whatever you have lying around. For example, quinoa can be substituted for any grain of your choice, and you can roast whichever veggies you have in the fridge! 

Happy & healthy travels! 

Lots of love,
