Life can be hectic. With rushed mornings, time-crunched days and a long list of to-dos one thing that often gets sacrificed is food. If you are going long hours without food or reaching for the wrong foods to fill the hunger gap, you may feel stuck in a food funk with low energy and unwanted weight gain. It’s time to break free from that cycle. Here are my three tips to be eating healthy on-the-go:
1. Plan: Have a Food Schedule
Don’t be caught off-guard by your hunger. When food is an afterthought you may find yourself at the drive-through. Make your lunch and dinner for the next day the night before to fuel your busy day.
2. Pack: Always Bring a Healthier Option
There is always a healthy swap for all of your food and beverage desires. You are more apt to make a healthier choice if you have something healthy nearby. I always keep healthy fruits and nuts, on hand or in my purse for when afternoon cravings hit.
3. Products: Invest in on-the-go storage
Having the right containers makes eating healthy on the go that much easier. Some of my favorite items are stainless steel containers and bento boxes, glass water bottles, insulated lunch bags, sleek thermoses and cloth snack bags.
And most importantly, arm yourself with the right attitude or what I call your “food-itude”. When you make the choice to BE healthy, you naturally make eating healthy a top priority in your day.
