25 Sep How to Eat Healthy on the Go
Ok, you are busy. Work, family, new possibilities, are often a top priority. Healthy eating?
Who has the time!? You run down to the cafeteria, grab the easiest and quickest thing to eat, and run back to the office for a working lunch. Even when you get home, you probably are so tired you just call up the usual takeout. Who’s to blame you. After all, you don’t feel hunger anymore. This kind of lifestyle takes its toll on your overall health, either through weight gain, lost energy, or both. But it’s never too late to change our habits and start living a quality life.
Healthy Snacks for the Week
There is a popular misconception about packaging snacks that it’s hard and time-consuming to do. But surely, during the weekend you can reserve an hour for prepping healthy snacks for the entire week. Here are five healthy snacks that you can prepare for the entire workweek.
1. Homemade yogurt & fruit cups
3. Boiled Eggs
4. Trail mix
Create a Meal Plan
Apparently, people are planning everything nowadays, and for a good reason. Meal planning helps people avoid many of the common pitfalls that get in the way of healthy eating.
What is a meal plan?
A type of plan you create for yourself or family for what type of diet and food you will have and need at mealtimes so you can buy and plan effectively. Some families have a meal plan and use this to create their shopping list to ensure they only buy what they need and when they need it.
Have Healthy Food On Deck
Snacks are key for healthy eating on the run because you never truly know when hunger will strike. For those moments when you can’t get to your next meal, have healthy snacks prepared and on hand. We love yogurt, spiced nuts, granola, or popcorn for a quick snack to grab on your way out the door. We also like to find some staple pre-packaged meals to keep an emergency stash in your backpack, bag, or desk. Our bone broth powder that’s rich in protein, collagen, chondroitin, and minerals, transforms into a tasty meal in under a minute! Made from the bones and cartilages of US grass-fed pasture-raised beef (no hormones or antibiotics). Our customers like to call it “Nature’s “multivitamin” in a cup”. You can check out our shop here.
Make Healthier Choices When Eating Out
Life happens, and you will eat out, but try to make healthier choices when you can. Check menus online before arriving at a restaurant to find the healthier options, and choose vegetable-based dishes when possible. We advise to start each meal with a side salad and a basic oil and vinegar blend to fill you up on those vegetables first. Then, split things like fries, dessert, and mac and cheese with the table.
If you’re always running late or on the go, you should never only cook enough food for just one meal. Package leftovers in containers so you can easily grab meals for the next few days. If lunch or dinner is already prepared, you won’t be tempted to call in takeout or eat whatever everything in sight. Be sure to package up extra portions as soon as possible so you don’t eat double and sabotage your health goals.
No Junk Food at House
This is basic, but we all forget doing it. It’s hard for people to think of healthy food when there’s a bag of chips or a pint of ice cream in the house. That’s why it’s best to just don’t have this kind of food lying around your house. Trust us, it’s much easier to eat healthier if you only have healthy food to choose from.
Tip #1 Always carry a bottle of water! No matter how busy you are you must stay hydrated.
Tip #2 Never skip breakfast! It’s definitely the most important meal of the day because you never know whether work will make you skip your lunch.
Tip #3 Write in Google “Healthy One-pot recipes”. Thank us later.
Do you see folks? Healthy eating doesn’t have to be a burden. It just takes a bit of planning and a dash of creativity. Do the best with what you can and don’t stress when things don’t go according to plan!
