4 Ways to Eat Healthy on a Crazy Busy Schedule

1) Plan your meals Bulk shop, cook and prep on the weekend so that at least your breakfast and lunches for the week are ready to go. Having the fridge stocked with healthy options that are ready for you to just grab and go is an easy way to ensure you stay on track! Put aside 1-2 hours on the weekend to get this together and you will be so happy you did! 2) Pack your lunches Not only does this save time and money but its also hands down the healthiest way to eat! You cooked it, so you know exactly what is in it. While this is a bit more work up front, after the first week of adjusting to this new routine it will become second nature! Don’t forget to pack snacks too, you never know when the munchies will hit. Apple, banana, cut up veggies or trail mix are the perfect portable snacks! crockpot-chicken 3) Breakout the Crockpot Whether you are single or feeding an army of children, the slow cooker is a lifesaver! You can prep all of the ingredients the night before, pop them in on your way out the door in the morning and viola! You come home to a perfectly cooked meal. It’s so easy, I like to start with onions and root veggies on the bottom, then a nice piece of grass-fed meat, or some beans, some broth or a diced tomatoes! And the best part is lots of left over’s! 4) Lean on Liquid Meals Experiment with starting your day with either a warm blended soup or a smoothie, and see how you feel. Many of us aren’t hungry when we wake up and that because it takes digestion a while to warm up. Starting off with a liquid meal is a great way to ease into the day. You can pre-make soups and stockpile them in your freezer or blend up a smoothie with some protein powder, berries and greens for a nutrient dense breakfast that’s easy to digest. Liquid meals are also less prep and cleanup but just as satisfying and healthy as your traditional breakfast options.
