Staying on track with your diet/nutrition can be difficult. Especially if you have a busy lifestyle like I do. I am a pretty organized person. A planner. I like schedules.😊😏
I know for some people, that is not the case. But, when it comes to staying on track planning and preparing is a big helper.
1. Food Prep Day
I have one day a week where I meal prep a lot of my food. It’s usually on Sunday, which is my off day. I always have at least two kinds of protein in my fridge that we can eat throughout the week without taking the time to prep and cook it. I also prep my carb sources. Which for me is root veggies and sweet potato. My veggies are usually the only thing I make fresh at meal time.
2. Easy on the go snacks
I eat about five meals a day(breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner) so having easy to snacks are a big thing for me. I always have fruits, nuts, chopped veggies and some store bought items in my house. My favorite store bought snacks are things like Rx bars, Epic meat bars and raw nuts. Having easy on the go healthy snack will definetly help you from grabbing a bag of chips or candy from the gas station.
3. Easy meal items
I found having things like tuna, precooked salmon and hardboiled eggs help when I really don’t have the time. Having leafy greens and premade salad dressings( I make my own) its easy to just throw everything in a bowl and have a huge salad.
I know it seems tedious to plan and precook things. But, trust me. It helps. Especially on those days you are just to tired or busy to cook. You are also way less likely to stop for fast food. If you already have food waiting for you at home.
Good nutrition isn’t just about losing weight or looking good. Its also is about your health and well being. I hope these tips will help you as they have helped me.
