Eating Healthy 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 you know how GREAT it makes you feel!

And I know I’m not going to let “being busy” stop me from feeling great and 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, rice milk or almond 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, or maybe a scoop of protein powder) and some healthy fats (avocado, coconut milk. or the proteins I mentioned before which also have you covered on the healthy-fat front!).

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, beetroot, peppers, onions…whatever you like.

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

Make a quick dressing with stone-ground mustard, olive oil, and a couple 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 salads at a time, don’t add the dressing to them yet, and they usually last a couple days.

Know where you can get a healthy take-away.

This could be from a nearby restaurant (I love my local café which has lots of healthy offerings (and it’s really close and inexpensive).

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, 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?
