Are You Really too Busy to Eat Healthy?
I’ve been hearing a lot lately that people are just too busy to make healthy food choices, and I get that there are a lot of ‘fast’ food options available in this busy world we live in. Is it really faster though by the time you leave the office and make your way to the food court?
There are so many great ways to keep your plates healthy fast so you can keep up with your busy life. Otherwise it’s a bit like going to the petrol station and filling your car up with watered down petrol, eventually your car won’t run anymore! Wouldn’t you rather fill it up with premium so that you don’t ever have to stop? Here are 3 things you can do RIGHT NOW that will help you get the nutrition you need:
- Put aside half an hour at the beginning of the week to boil a dozen eggs, blitz up some hommus and cut up some tasty vegetables. That way you always have a healthy snack on hand (I usually eat mine with cheese because I’m a cheese addict!)
- Don’t have time to make it to the farmer’s market? Buy online (and local) here – http://www.thelocalgrocer.com.au they even have set boxes full of seasonal local produce that gets delivered to your doorstep. Why not get a fruit box delivered to work? Or a Green Juicer box at home if that’s more your thing.
- Make some bone broth already! This becomes the base for a really fast protein packed soup on the go. Just add your favourite herbs and vegies and it it nutritious and delicious. Especially on these cold wintery nights. Here is a link to the lovely Sarah Hopkin’s recipe http://health-wellbeing.com.au/healthy-lifestyle-guidelines-advice/amazing-elixir-of-health-and-youth-bone-broth/
I’d love to hear your thoughts, how do you pack more healthy goodness into your packed schedule?
