Whether you are running your kids 100 different directions or if work is constantly keeping you busy, you may find that it’s hard to eat healthy while in a hurry. Below I’ve listed some tips to help you even in a rush make healthy nutrient rich meals.
- Take advantage of crock pot dinners: These are a great way to make really nutrient dense meals that don’t take up a lot of your time. Just throw everything in before leaving for work in the morning and then it’ll be ready by the time you come home from work, picking up the kids, etc. (www.skinnytaste.com has some great recipes to try).
- Leftovers, leftovers, leftovers: You can create an assembly line of sorts with tupperware and put away leftovers from dinner for tomorrow’s lunch in an instant.
- Plan ahead: I understand trying to plan ahead can be difficult when you are constantly on the go, but having a weekly meal plan or shopping list can make a huge difference in eating healthy while in a hurry.
- Eat out wisely: Know where some healthy options are near your office, home, etc. Find items that you like there, then add those to your weekly shopping list so you can prep those items at home.
