Eating is no longer an activity you do around the table with friends and family. How many times this past week have you eaten on the run? No place is safe either – the car, your desk, in the bed, shower and some of us eat when we potty! Our time is strapped and we need food that’s easy to grab ‘n’ go. And during this mad-chaos of finding food on our way out the door, one detail is easy to forget – making sure that the choices we make are healthy.
Unfortunately, only the bad stuff that is processed and get's commercials falls into the "fast" and "easy" categories – chips, candy bars, sodas, etc. Well, what if we took some time and ingenuity to make our own healthy snacks portable and easy for on-the-go eating?
I’m talking about things that can fit into the top drawer at work (not jelly beans or Kisses!) or snacks prepared ahead of time that can be popped into a lunch bag. Yes, some of these items WILL require a little thinking ahead. Some might even require lunch cooler. But they are fast, simple, and easy. Most take less than 5 minutes to prepare. You’ll also be thankful that you’ve saved yourself the cash that normally goes to vending machines or convenience stores. Your body will be grateful as well as your wallet. The benefits of good health outweigh the costs.
