I wanted to share some tips with you for when you are really busy but still want to eat healthy, because it makes you feel GREAT to keep eating healthy, right?!

And we aren’t going to let “being busy” stop us from feeling great, correct?

Well, I have some tips for you on what you can eat to stay healthy when you are busy!

Smoothies.

So fast, just pour some coconut water, rice milk or hemp milk into the blender, then throw in some frozen berries AND some veggies (spinach, cucumber, romaine lettuce, just to name a few).

Add some protein ( either hemp seed, chia seed or a scoop of protein powder) and some healthy fats (such as avocado or coconut oil).

For extra flavour, add some vanilla extract or dash of cinnamon.

Salads.

Chop up a bunch of lettuce – romaine or red leaf – and add some spinach.

Pile on some other veggies – tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, radishes, sliced beets, bell peppers, onions…whatever you like.

Add some protein such as pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, cooked organic chicken breast, kidney beans, sprouts, a hard-boiled egg, or salmon or tuna.

Make a quick dressing with stone-ground mustard, olive oil, and add a bit of sea salt.

Toss it all together and eat.

If you chop the veggies in bulk you can make a couple salads at a time, don’t add the dressing to them yet and they usually last a couple days.

“Stake Out” where you can get healthy take-away.

There could be a nearby restaurant (I love my local Japanese restaurants and their inexpensive) and they prepare healthy food to go such as sashimi or seaweed rolls.

Some take away outlets now have organic and locally-sourced produce, organic chicken and free-range grass-fed beef. Their portions will keep you on track but you can also get a medium or large size meal if you want to have extra leftovers.

No, it’s not quite as cheap as buying and preparing it yourself, but if you are a busy person (OR you just don’t enjoy cooking) and would just spend the money on junky fast food or pizza delivery, then it’s a much better value.

It’s always the small habits that add up.

So by being prepared ahead of time with these quick and easy meals, you won’t let yourself fall back into old habits that cause you to not feel so great!

Easy as pie!
