I find it helpful to find time on the weekend to plan out and make my meals for the next week. I will make a large pot of soup and freeze portions or cut up ingredients for salads during the week. I find that if it's ready and easy to just take out of the fridge or freezer and either throw together or heat up, then I am less likely to reach for less healthy or pre-packaged foods. Having some vegetables or fruit cut up and ready to snack on along with some hummus or yogurt also helps me. Hope these are useful to you!View Thread
This is such a great question! I can certainly relate to needing to grab a meal quickly and feeling like fast food is the only option. I think that this article does a good job of laying some ground rules if you will for eating at fast food restaurants - and it offers some healthier options from popular chains that you might want to consider. Hope this helps!View Thread
My go-to breakfast is overnight oats -- they are easy and taste awesome. Basically I combine 1/4 cup of old-fashioned rolled oats, 1/3 milk (I use almond milk but whatever kind you use is fine), and 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt with an assortment of toppings in a mason jar. Mix it all up, and leave it in your fridge overnight. Voila! My favorite toppings in include apples, cinnamon, and honey for a kind of healthy apple pie taste. Blueberries and nuts are also good.
