How To Eat Healthy With A Busy Lifestyle

How To Eat Healthy With A Busy Lifestyle

One of the main struggles I hear about when it comes to my
clients switching to a healthier eating regimen, is that they have a hard time
incorporating it into their busy lifestyles and various schedules.

I have devised several easy tricks that I myself use on a
daily basis to make sure that I’ve always got healthy options at the ready, no
matter how busy things seem to get!

Prep time is key!

It is absolutely imperative that you set aside some time to prep. Even if you
do this while you are watching TV, etc.

It doesn’t take very long, can be done only once a week, and
will ensure that you’ve always got your healthy eating in place regardless of
your lifestyle. Carve out an hour, or even a few minutes here and there to

Here are my suggestions for changing your diet in your own
unique lifestyle:

1. Always have a bowl of hard-boiled eggs in your fridge. I will
boil an entire carton and leave them in the fridge for an easy grab and go
snack or quick breakfast/lunch addition. Leaving them in the shells until eaten
will ensure they last longer.

2. Always cook extra protein. I will cook up
some chicken breasts or steaks. Cut them into strips and they make an easy stir
fry or salad addition that can be quickly thrown together.

Believe it or not, I will even use these as a snack
sometimes on the busier days.

3. Chopped veggies. Chop up some veggies and
leave them in the fridge in containers. In this way they also make quick and
easy additions to stir fries, salads, other meals and also are great grab and
go snacks!

4. Fresh fruit in plain sight. Be sure to always
keep fresh fruit in a bowl on the table or counter. This is excellent for grab
and go, are a great addition to any lunch and take absolutely zero time to
prepare. I will even grab an avocado to eat on the go, just bring a bag for the
garbage left behind.

5. The crockpot is your friend. Let the crockpot
do the cooking for you! Make a large chilli, or other meal in your crockpot.
Portion it out into containers for the fridge and voila! You’ve got healthy
pre-made meals that you can take with you, or have at home for quick and easy

6. Make ahead snack bars. I will make a tray of
no-bake protein bars and also leave those in the fridge so that you can have
something else that’s delicious, feels like a treat and yet is still healthy
and quick to grab. The no bake recipes make things much easier and less time

With just a little time carve out to prep these easy ideas,
you will always have healthy choices to eat in times of hunger and when life
gets busy!

These are also great ideas for kids and their own busy lives
as well!
