How to Eat Healthily with a Busy Schedule

You’re busy. When you aren’t at work, you are running errands, cleaning something, or spending time with your kids. Who has time to eat, let alone prepare healthy meals?

The problem with this is that in order to have enough energy to do what we need to do, we need to take the time to eat healthy. The good news is by following these tips you’ll be able to eat healthfully despite your busy schedule.

Preparing Simple Meals

People think that once they commit to eating healthfully, they will need to spend a lot of time cooking. That’s not the case. There are meals that don’t take long to prepare but that are very healthy.

•Healthy sandwiches. Keep it healthy! Keep these on hand: low carb tortillas, whole grain breads or lettuce for wraps; low fat spreads like mustard and hummus; vegetables and lean lunchmeats to make a quick sandwich whenever you get hungry.

•Greek yogurt. You can do so many things with Greek yogurt. Mixed with fruit and some granola, you have a nice breakfast. Stir in a little honey and sprinkle it with walnuts, you have a simple and traditional Greek dessert. Stir it with spices and make a quick dip for vegetables for a healthy snack. The possibilities are endless!

•Prepackaged meals. This isn’t the ideal option for eating healthfully because there still are preservatives in it, but this can be a great option for making something quick and healthy. Low carb, low fat and low sugar frozen entrees, canned soups, and other packaged foods like whole grain pasta are great to have on hand.

•Big batch cooking. Making large batches of healthy foods like soup, veggie dishes, and grilled meats can really help you eat healthier. Just remember that you can also freeze these meals in advance in individual portions so that you can take it out of the freezer and warm it up when you are hungry.

•Healthy snacks. Keeping healthy snacks on hand is another great healthy eating strategy. Things like fruits, vegetables, granola bars, nuts and even cereal can all make eating a healthy diet simple and easy.

•Easy recipes. Another great strategy for healthy eating is to learn a few simple recipes such: stir fries, egg dishes, salads and low carb noodle dishes that don’t take long to prepare. That way, when it’s time to eat, you don’t have to take a lot of time preparing the meal.

As you can see, eating healthy is something that doesn’t have to take a lot of time. Follow these tips and you’ll be able to lose weight or maintain your weight without a problem!
