Healthy Eating On The Go

Let’s face it, life can get hectic. Between work, errands, and social commitments, fitting in healthy meals can feel like a challenge. But neglecting your nutrition can leave you feeling sluggish and drained. The good news is, with a little planning and creativity, you can enjoy delicious and nutritious meals, even when you’re short on time. Here are some healthy eating on the go tips to keep you on track:

Power Up With Meal Prep:

  • Planning is Key: Take a few minutes each week to plan your meals and snacks. This will help you stay on track and avoid unhealthy impulse buys.
  • Sunday Funday: Dedicate some time on Sundays to prepping breakfast, lunch, or snack components for the week. This could involve chopping veggies, prepping hard-boiled eggs, or portioning out yogurt and granola.
  • Batch Cook Smart: Double up on dinner recipes to have leftovers for lunch the next day. This is a great way to ensure you have a satisfying and nutritious meal readily available.

Fresh and Portable Grab-and-Go Options:

  • Mason Jar Salads: Layer your favorite salad ingredients in a mason jar, with the dressing at the bottom. When you’re ready to eat, simply shake it up!
  • Snack Attack: Pre-portion nuts, trail mix, or baby carrots into single-serving bags for a convenient and healthy snack.
  • Veggie Sticks and Hummus: Pre-cut vegetables like carrots, cucumbers, and bell peppers pair perfectly with single-serving containers of hummus for a satisfying and crunchy snack.
  • Hard Boiled Eggs & Fruit: This classic combo provides a satisfying balance of protein and healthy carbohydrates. Pre-boil a batch of eggs on Sundays and pair them with your favorite fruits like grapes, apple slices, or berries for a quick and nutritious grab-and-go option.

Smoothie Savvy:

  • Protein Powerhouse: Protein powder can be a great way to add a boost of protein and healthy calories to your smoothie. Look for options made with pea protein, like EssentialMeal Meal Replacement Protein Shake. Pea protein is a complete protein, helping you feel full longer, and is very easy to digest.
  • Green Goodness: Green powders, packed with leafy greens and other veggies, can be a convenient way to add a dose of micronutrients to your smoothie. I love this GreenSynergy Elixir and drink it every day. It’s a 3 in 1 smart nutrition drink with 13 full-spectrum digestive enzymes for less bloat, a full serving of fruits and vegetables for smart nutrition support, and a vegan collagen builder for great-looking skin. 

Here is a great chart that shows the amazing benefits of GreenSynergy Elixer:

Beyond the Basics:

  • Pack Smart Snacks: Stash healthy, shelf-stable snacks like dried fruits and nuts, in your bag or car for those times when hunger strikes unexpectedly. 
  • Healthy Restaurant Choices: When dining out, opt for grilled or baked dishes instead of fried options. Choose whole grains over refined carbohydrates, and don’t be afraid to ask for substitutions or modifications to make healthier choices.
  • Get Spicy: Add a kick of flavor and metabolism boost to your meals with hot sauce, chili flakes, or sriracha. Just a few dashes can add a surprising amount of flavor without adding unhealthy fats or calories.

Don’t Forget Hydration:

  • Pack a reusable water bottle and refill it throughout the day. Aim to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and energized.

Eating healthy on the go is all about planning and preparation. By incorporating these tips into your routine, you can ensure you’re nourishing your body with the nutrients it needs to thrive, even on your busiest days.
