So, you want to eat better but you’re not sure where to start. Lunch poses a problem for you because you work in an office where your colleagues order takeout all the time. That doesn’t mean that you should give up your quest for better health. What it does mean, however, is that you’re going to have to do some extra planning to make sure that you’re never without healthy meal options.
Here are some suggestions that help you eat better while on the go:
- Make one day meal prep day. If possible, spend some time on Sunday prepping your meals for the week. Cut vegetables, prepare salads, cook extra protein, and put soup in the crockpot. Although it may seem laborious at first, you’ll save yourself time, money, and calories by thinking ahead. Having hard-boiled eggs cooked in bulk makes grabbing food as you go out the door quick and easy.
- Always choose the best option for you. It’s easy to let yourself slide when you see everyone else doing the same thing. If you agree to go out to dinner with friends, check out the menu online ahead of time. Have one or two options that meet your dietary needs in mind when you order. Skip alcoholic beverages and dessert. The real treat is eating in a restaurant not a beer or slice of pie.
- Take your supplements regularly. Everyone has their fair share of bad days. Maybe you didn’t get to eat as well as you would have liked to one day. You can compensate for the misstep by choosing a supplement that helps your body feel its best. You won’t feel as rundown as you normally would because you’ve had an added boost of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients.
Eat the best possible foods you can to nourish your body. By preparing in advance, you’ll always be ready to eat the right meals and snacks. You won’t be relying on junk foods full of sugar, fat, and sodium to power through the day.
