How to eat well when you’re in a hurry.
Life is about choices. The choices that you make in each individual moment add up to shape your hours, days, weeks and years. These choices include how you eat as well. At the end of the week, look back and see how many times you chose the quick fix or the easy option.
The goal here is not to turn all of us into vegetarians that make all of our own food from scratch. Many of us are too harried to sit and plan every meal. The goal is to look at your options when you are out or the house or preparing for a busy day and to choose foods that will give you what you need. What you need are protein, vitamins, minerals and good sources of long-term energy.
The guidelines: Choose high protein, low trans fat and low sugar options
“Low fat” salad dressings, which really mean “high sugar” dressings
Pizza with cheese and tomato sauce
Lamb or Chicken wrap with a side salad
Bagels and cream cheese
Yogurt with granola or a breakfast smoothie with protein
