Eating Healthy Tips When You Are Crazy Busy

I wanted to share some tips with you for when you are really busy but still want to eat healthy – because it makes you feel GREAT to keep eating healthy, right?!

And we aren’t going to let “being busy” stop us from feeling great, right?!

Well I have some tips for you on what you can eat to stay healthy when you are busy!

Smoothies.

So fast, just pour some coconut water, almond milk, rice milk or hemp milk into the blender, then throw in your fruits AND some veggies (spinach, cucumber, romaine lettuce just to name a few). Add some protein if you like (hemp seed or chia seed, almond butter, or maybe a scoop of protein powder) and some healthy fats (avocado, coconut milk – and the proteins I mentioned before also have you covered on the healthy-fat front!).  See my blog posts on healthy smoothie recipes.

For extra flavor add some vanilla extract, or dash of cinnamon.

Salads.

Chop up a bunch of lettuce – romaine or red leaf – and add some spinach. Pile on some other veggies – tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, radishes, sliced beets, bell peppers, onions…. whatever you like.

Add some protein. Choose pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, cooked chicken breast (organic is best), kidney beans, sprouts, a hard-boiled egg, or salmon or tuna.

Make a quick dressing with stone-ground mustard, olive oil, and a couple of sprays of Bragg’s Amino Acids (or just a bit of sea salt if you don’t have Bragg’s or can’t find it). Toss it all together and eat.

If you chop the veggies in bulk you can make a couple of salads at a time, don’t add the dressing to them yet, and they usually last a couple of days.

Know where you can get healthy take-out.

This could be from a nearby restaurant or health food store with pre-made healthy options.   I love the Newark co-op, Wegmans and Whole Foods.   They prepare healthy food on the go. I typically go at lunch time or the weekend and pick up a couple of dishes for the week.  They have organic and locally sourced produce, organic chicken, and free-range grass-fed meats. Their portions will keep you on track but you can also get a medium or large size meal if you want to have extra leftovers.

No it’s not quite as cheap as buying and preparing it yourself but if you are a busy person (OR you just don’t enjoy cooking) and would just spend the money on junky fast food or pizza delivery, then it’s a much better value.

It’s always the small habits that add up – don’t let yourself fall back into old habits that cause you to not feel so great! I’d love to hear from you, too – what do you like to eat when you are really busy?

Thanks for reading. ~ Vivian.
