Never skip breakfast!
When you are tight on time, try: a trail mix packet and V8 juice, a low- sugar protein bar, or a homemade smoothie to bring on the road with you. Add a handful of almonds for extra protein.
Quick meal ideas:
Use a Crockpot and add 3 cans of beans, 1 jar of pasta sauce and your favorite seasonings, set on low all day and dinner is ready when you get home!
Bake chicken ahead of time and have it ready in the fridge for quick salads & wraps
Make brown rice and quinoa ahead of time and keep in the fridge – quickly heat in the microwave for a simple dinner or add the brown rice to your bean chili
Use LOW SODIUM ready-made soups for quick lunches at work and ready-made tuna packets
Enjoy healthy snacks!
Easy for on-the-go: sunflower seeds, trail mix packets, brown rice cakes, veggies & hummus, easy & portable fruit (apples, bananas, peaches, pears)
Healthy Eating-out tips:
Ask your server for vegetables to be steamed
