Ready for a fun healthy eating challenge? Here's everything you need to know about the 5-day Throw Together Meal Challenge on Instagram! #TTMchallenge!
Sure, in a perfect world every meal we’d eat would be a beautifully presented plate of food, but life happens… we’re busy, we’re hungry, and who has time to run to the grocery store for 2 tablespoons of arrowroot or casava flour?
In this 5-day challenge, you’ll learn how to make a simple and healthy throw together meal using what’s in your fridge as well as pantry staples, frozen foods, and a variety of other convenience items, from pre-cut veggies to store-bought sauces and dressings. Anything goes when it comes to speeding up meal time!
HOW TO MAKE A THROW TOGETHER MEAL
THROW TOGETHER MEAL INSPIRATION
Looking for some throw together meal inspiration? Here are 54 of my favorite throw together meals. Pretty much all of them are made with 5 ingredients or less and can be assembled in under 20 minutes. I hope they give you some tasty ideas for the #TTMchallenge!
HOW TO USE THESE MEALS:
Each week, pick 2-3 throw together meals from the 54 options listed above. Purchase the required ingredients to have on-hand in your kitchen, so you’re always ready to throw together a meal when the time comes.
Like anything new to you, practice makes perfect. The more you prioritize and familiarize yourself with these kinds of throw together meals, their simple ingredients and, of course, all of their possibilities, the easier it becomes to make a quick and healthy meals.
Speaking of which…
The 5-day Throw Together Challenge is a great time to practice making your own meals at home for a chance to win some awesome prizes!
HOW THE #TTMCHALLENGE WORKS
The name of the game is simplicity! The goal of the challenge is to create quick and easy meals that can quite literally be thrown together in a matter of minutes using minimal, easy-to-find ingredients. If there is something you need to purchase at the grocery store, it will NOT be some obscure, hard-to-find ingredient that costs $12.
This is INSTAGRAM challenge! So, yes, you need to sign up for a free account. To be entered to win, you will need to share 5 of your throw together meals via Instagram (in your feed or Stories), using a photo (it doesn't need to be fancy; I want to see REAL LIFE meals).
YOU WILL NEED TO HASHTAG ALL POSTS using #TTMchallenge and the NUMBER of the meal that you are sharing. For example, your description might be "Just cooked up a tasty buffalo chicken bowl with lots of veggies. @carrotsncake, you would love it! #TTMchallenge #meal3"
In order to complete the challenge, you must share 5 throw together meals over the course of 5 days (1/20-24). You could share 1 meal per day or 2 in one day and take a day off. It's totally up to you when you decide to share them. Pretty much any breakfast, lunch, or dinner counts as long as you threw it together quickly and effortlessly. You just need to share 5 meals total to complete the challenge.
On Saturday, January 25, I will randomly select 3 winners from those who completed the challenge (5 throw together meals in 5 days) and announce in my Instagram Stories. The three (3) winners will have their choice of the following prizes:
6 weeks of group coaching with me ($199 value)
