“If you’re super busy, but still want to maintain a healthy lifestyle, maybe lose some weight and just feel good about yourself… This is how I prepare meals in less than 30 minutes,” she said in an Instagram video.

First, she made three servings of the vegetarian Mexican salad in just five minutes and placed a paper towel on the food.
“The paper towel actually helps absorb some of the moisture from the vegetables so they stay fresh longer,” she said in the clip.
For her second lunch meal, she prepared two servings of Aldi mango chicken with coconut rice and broccolini, which she admitted tastes “so good” (left). For breakfast she made coconut, lemon and blueberry oats (right)
