Why should you try to stay the course while on the go? Because eating nourishing food makes you feel great…right? Better energy, mood, focus.
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!
So fast, just pour some coconut water, rice milk or unsweetened almond milk into the blender, then add fruit AND some veggies (spinach, cucumber, romaine lettuce, just to name a few).
Add some protein if you’d like (chia seed, or maybe a scoop of my favorite Vegan protein powder AND a Skoop my new favorite Super Foods). In addition add healthy fats (avocado, coconut milk or the proteins I mentioned above which also have you covered on the healthy-fat front!).
For extra flavor, add some vanilla extract or dash of cinnamon. Or, if you are making a chocolate smoothie add a few drops of Peppermint. Peppermint is invigorating and helps fight fatigue.
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 organic wild salmon, kidney beans, sprouts, a hard-boiled egg, 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 (I love my local Japanese restaurant and it’s really close and inexpensive) or you could find a place like Mother which is a new Vegetarian Restaurant in our area.
Eating out is not quite as cheap as buying and preparing meals yourself, but if you are a busy person (OR you just don’t enjoy cooking) and would like to eat out; just be wise about what you’re putting in your body.
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?
