Committing to a healthy eating plan is hard enough, but what if you have a busy, on-the-go schedule? It may be tempting to stop at fast food drive-thrus or eat vending machine food, but don’t be tempted by all that fat, sugar, and salt. There are healthy alternatives that are portable and easy to eat if you’re constantly on the run.
If you are always running late in the morning, you probably aren’t eating breakfast before you leave the house. You might also end up grabbing a calorie bomb like a muffin or croissant at the coffee shop before you get to the office.
Unfortunately, eating pastry for breakfast will just leave you hungry a couple hours later. To stave off mid-morning hunger and to fuel up properly, try this Breakfast Slab Pie. This is the perfect balance of protein, carbs, and fat. Make yourself a pan and cut it up into portable squares that you can throw into a plastic baggie or container to eat on your commute or when you get to work.
Lunch on the Run
If at lunchtime you are always in your car on the way to a meeting or shuttling kids around, you may tend to eat fast food for lunch or skip it altogether. Luckily, there is a healthier and tastier option. Try this recipe for Sweet Potato Bacon Cakes for a lunch
you will actually look forward to even if you can’t get out of your car. The sweet potatoes provide a dose of healthy carbs for energy, and the bacon provides much-needed protein to keep you full.
Dinner on Demand
These days, getting a full dinner on the table every night is impossible. If you and your family have different schedules and activities in the evening, these Turkey Meatloaf Muffins are a great way to eat a filling and nutritious meal.
Baking them in muffin tins makes them easy to eat, which saves time, and there won’t be any plates to wash.
Try any of these recipes when you feel like life is getting too hectic and eating healthy is becoming a distant memory. You will be full and satisfied.
