5 Ways To Get Your 5 a Day

Five Ways to Get Your 5 a Day

Making sure to get your 5 a day, every day, can be challenging. However, with these 5 easy options you will be able to boost your intake of fruit and veg with ease.

 

  1. Banana and blueberry protein pancakes

Who knew that pancakes could not only be healthy, but also help you on your way to 5 a day! To make delicious blueberry and banana protein pancakes that are a great breakfast or snack option, simply blitz together 1 banana with 1 egg and a scoop of Wake Slimmer powder. Once combined, add a spoonful of the mix to a hot pan and cook until bubbly. Add a few blueberries and then flip. Repeat until all of the mixture is used. Serve the pancakes with a handful more berries, and a drizzle of maple syrup if needed.

 

  1. Chicken and vegetable pitta

Up to 2 portions

These are a great summer barbecue option, or easy grill meal because they are versatile and easy to make. Chicken is brilliant because it is high in protein, and you have the flexibility to add the vegetables that you like. Great vegetable options are mushrooms, peppers and onions because they all taste delicious when grilled. For extra 5 a day goodness, you could serve your chicken pittas with sweet potato fries and a bowl of fresh salad.

 

  1. A smoothie

Up to 2 portions

If you fancy a snack, or need a quick breakfast when you are out and about, a smoothie is a great choice as it usually counts as at least one portion, but often two or more of your 5 a day. However, not all smoothies are created equal, so pick those that have been made from whole fruits as they contain fibre, and make sure that there is no added sugar. What is even better is if you can make the smoothie yourself because that way you know exactly what is in it, and you can add extras such as Wake Builder/Wake Slimmer powder for a protein boost, or leafy greens for extra antioxidants.

 

  1. A cream cheese, tomato and cucumber sandwich 

Up to 2 portions

A delicious lunchtime option that is great for a picnic, and sure to boost your 5 a day is a cream cheese, tomato and cucumber sandwich. For maximum benefit, and to count towards your 5 a day, make sure that the vegetables you select add up to 100g which is about 5cm of cucumber sliced, and a medium tomato.

 

  1. Banana protein ice cream

Up to 2 portions

An easy way to boost your 5 a day is with this banana protein ice cream that is not only delicious but seriously delicious. To make it, simply chop up a ripe banana and freeze it. Then, when you fancy a chilly treat that tastes just like ice cream, blitz up the banana with a scoop of Wake Slimmer/Wake Builder powder and a splash of milk. You can top the ice cream with chopped nuts, and fresh berries for additional protein and fruit goodness.
