I want you to enjoy everything that BARE has to offer! So here are my 6 top tips on how to get the most out of you BARE Taste Tester.

1. Plan ahead

Whether you want to meal prep, batch cook or cook as you go, organisation is key! In you BARE Taste Tester, I've given you an example week of BARE meals as well as the delicious recipes. Use this plan to help you write out your shopping list and get your kitchen ready for the week ahead!

In the BARE Guide, I give you example weekly meal plans, which you can follow or use for inspiration, while also providing you with a meal planner template so you can easily choose your BARE meals and plan them out for the week ahead. This small organised step helps you to save money, not waste food and, most importantly, ensure your body is getting all the macronutrients it needs to thrive.

2. Meal Prep

You'll see very quickly that I designed all the meals in the BARE Taste Tester and Guide to be meal prepped focused. Meal prepping helps you to save time, energy and money, all while allowing you to enjoy healthy and delicious meals.

Even if you're not into meal prepping there are a few easy things you can do to help you be organised for the week. 

  • Pre-wash and chop your vegetables.
  • Prepare and marinate your proteins. Depending on how soon you are planning on cooking these, store in the fridge or freezer.
  • Cook your grains ahead of time. I typically batch-cook my quinoa, rice and pasta, then store them in the fridge for when I am assembling my meal.
  • Don’t be afraid of your freezer! Portion out proteins, wholegrains and veggies and freeze for a quick go-to on a busy day.

3. Listen to your body

When it comes to eating the best thing you can do for yourself is to listen to your body. I personally eat three main meals and two snacks every day, as this suits my lifestyle. Therefore, it’s how I have structured my BARE Guide so you can be sure you're getting all your macronutrients across the day. However, I suggest you eat and adjust the portion sizes if you need to whatever suits your lifestyle, hunger needs and personal goals.

4. Be open

I've created every BARE Recipe to be easy, healthy, budget friendly and, most importantly, super delicious! However, through your BARE Taste Tester (and the BARE Guide) you may be discover new recipes, ingredients or flavours you haven't tried before and therefore, I highly recommend that you stay open to trying new things! At the same time, also be open to experimenting. Feel free to add or change your veggies, swap your proteins (for the right serving size) or use different spices. 

You'll discover in the BARE Guide that every recipe is super flexible with an abundance of swaps and alternatives, so you can eat the way you want!
