Fit Tip Friday - Be Prepared!

One of the biggest culprits in the choice to eat poorly is lack of preparedness. It's the "I don't have anything for dinner so I'll just swing through the drive thru" or "I'm out of lunch supplies so I'll grab something from the cafeteria" choices that easily derail my healthy eating.

Being prepare with lots of easy, quick and healthy foods is essential! Typically, I make a batch of some sort of healthy soup every weekend that I can use as the main part of my lunches for the week. In the picture, you can see it already packed in portioned containers.

Along with my soup, I buy a big container of plain Greek yogurt that I also portion out. In the morning, all I do is add some frozen organic fruit and toss it in my lunch bag. A bag of mini carrots or rounds out my lunch!

Having the things ready to grab and go, pre-packed and sorted saves me time and calories. It's not as easy to think about grabbing chicken fingers from the cafeteria when I know I have lunch ready to go in the fridge!

(p.s. this is the first time I've blogged from my phone, so please excuse any typos!)

  1. I LOVE Greek yogurt! That and carrots are daily eats in our house. And you are so right about getting everything prepared. That is key!
