You Have To Be Prepared

When we are hungry, we tend to grab whatever is most convenient. That is why when eating clean and living a healthy lifestyle it is important to always have healthy options at arms length. This requires some thoughtful preparation but not more than ten minutes a week of my time.

This is what I packed last night for this week…

  • plain greek yogurt
  • fresh fruits (blueberries, peaches, apples, bananas)
  • chopped veggies (cucumbers, broccoli, yellow pepper, baby carrots)
  • spicy avocado humus
  • whole wheat bread
  • natural peanut butter
  • string cheese
  • all natural turkey jerkey
  • a couple packets of almond butter
  • lemon for my water
  • packets of tuna
  • crystal light packets
  • almonds

 

 

It may look excessive, but this will provide me with healthy snacking and most lunches for the entire week. This is what keeps me from giving in to the temptation to reach in to the office chocolate bowl or indulging in a bag of potato chips from the snack basket in the kitchen.

What do you do to stay on track?

What are some of your favorite healthy go-to snacks?

    Yummy …. So you eat this as your Lunch as well?
    Except the yogart… I tried it and t made me gag…. next! lol

    • Haha! Try adding a packet of Splenda and some blueberries to the yogurt. And yes, for lunch I might have a packet of tuna with some veggies and hummus. A couple of days a week I treat myself to a lunch from the cafe in our building, a big chicken salad or a wrap. I eat every 2-3 hours so I don’t really need a large lunch because I know that in a couple of hours I will have a snack , maybe an apple and some almonds.

    This is a helpful post. I am a nursing mom ad I’m training for my first marsthon and trying to switch to a plant base diet. I’ve been having a hard time making it through the week with food and snacks. I’ve had to buy more often then I’ve wanted to because of poor planning but I’m trying to work on a meal plan template that will work for myself, hubby and almost 1yr old son. I need way more calaries than them so I think I’ll try this method of planning snacks as well as meals. I tend to have a large lunch in addition to my snacks to make sure I’m getting the calories. My favorite snacks recently have been this nut mix from the bulk section of whole foods that has goji beans, almonds, cashews, dark chocolate and a couple other items, hummus and avocado sandwiches and peaches (they’ve been so sweet lately). Thanks for sharing!!
