There is not one time that I ever ate healthy that I’ve regretted it or didn’t feel well. When I’m just grab the first sugary thing on the shelf, or decide to go through the fast food line because of poor planning my body and energy level take a hit. It’s so easy to eat unhealthy when your schedule is busy and your starving. But, with a little pre-prep and forethought healthy eating is doable. I’ve been hitting the gym while Anya is in a summer intensive ballet class and with every drop of sweat I’m reminded of the consequences of not being mindful about what I put in my mouth. I want to encourage you to pre-prep your veggies and fruit so that you can quickly grab them as a snack or add them to a meal. It has made a definite difference for me lately.
Veggie Pre-Prep Tip!
Cut your veggies as you as you get them from the store and put them in a ziplock baggie or container. You may want to write the date on them if you’re like me who always forgets about the produce in her fridge!
Putting the veggies in a container makes it super easy to either eat them whole or grab some out to prepare. One of my favorite ways to eat veggies is to add a little olive oil, sea salt, and pepper and put them in the oven at 450 for about 10 minutes. There still crisp and really flavorful! Then I just add it to shrimp, chicken, or I eat them right out of the oven!
