Most of us are constantly racing about with work commitments, family commitments, community involvement and household responsibilities.
With all these commitments we may lack time to think about, let alone, make healthy food choices. Here are some helpful hints:
1) Prep food when you have a day off.
- Grill, bake or broil your protein sources for the week. you can use chicken, beef and beans for salads, soups and wraps to enjoy throughout the week.
- Make individual lunches or dinners and put them in containers to grab when you are rushing out the door or getting home late.
2) Buy pre-cut vegetables, cheeses, fruits and meats to avoid the extra time it takes to cut them. Separate them into snack-sized bags for easy grab-and-go meals.
3) Recognize that it can take more time to go through a drive-thru than it takes to prepare a sandwich or soup.
