How to avoid a fast food joint when on the go and hungry

by Vivian Fleitstra on November 24, 2013

Well, I am sure at one time or another we have all found ourselves on the drive thru line, starving, and craving some food that will provide a solution to that crazy grumbling sound in our bellies. So, we go for something quick and fast. It also doesn’t help that each town has at least one to two or even more fast food joints to offer some quick yet unhealthy options for us. How do we avoid this? How can we avoid being that hungry, craving, cranky, in a need of a fast fix person who has lost all control for healthy determination? Well, it is much simpler than you’d think.

The real fast food before corporations built these multi-million dollar unhealthy options for us, was good old-fashioned fruits and veggies. Imagine that! Fruits and veggies should always be the number one option and they are sold everywhere we turn as well, although they don’t usually have a drive thru. So, if it is about convenience then we need to prepare ahead of time. If we pack snacks and quick foods to go in our purse then we will always have a fast food option that aligns with having a healthy determination.

However, I am a busy mom running from activity, school, work or otherwise, so I know how hard it can be to pack something.   I typically carry an apple or banana with me.   My trainer also taught me to keep a healthy option for protein bars in my car so at least I have something in a pinch.  But since so many have so many extra carbs and sugar, I opt for trail mix.

I suggest packing apples, bananas, almonds, and even some healthy home-made trail mix! Trail mix is my favorite go to snack when I’m on the go. I put some nuts, raisins, and dried fruit like cranberries in a little zip lock back or plastic Tupperware container. It is always there and it doesn’t fail me. It also quick to prepare and if I make a bunch of it I can take little servings for a couple of days so it lasts.  It is also great snack for the kids if they are hungry after sports or school pickup.

The best way to avoid fast food joints while on the go is to always make sure you have a fast food option in your purse, gym bag or car.

Thanks for reading. ~ Vivian.
