One thing I’m super passionate about (which if you’ve been around here for any length of time, you have probably picked up on) is leading a healthy lifestyle! When you treat your body right, when you nourish it and take care of it, you feel better, from the inside out. I truly believe this, and live by this! Another thing I’m super passionate about is eating, especially snacking! I am SUCH a snacker! But don’t let that word fool you- snacks can be healthy! I am all about the healthy snacks, actually! Especially with my busy on-the-go lifestyle, what with working from home and running errands and being a mom to two busy little ones (with another on the way, ahh!), I need snacks that are quick, easy to grab and healthy, so I have energy to get through the day! Enter: FAGE Total Split Cup Greek yogurt! The perfect on the go healthy snack! And today I’m sharing my top tips for eating healthy on the go!
TIPS FOR EATING HEALTHY ON THE GO
This is EVERYTHING. I love the saying, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” This rings so true in life in general, but especially in healthy eating! I love my meal prep Sundays, when I prepare a few solid snacks and foods for the week ahead. FAGE makes this part easy, with their yummy FAGE Split Cups! I just stock up for the week, and I can easily grab one and take it with me or eat and run! I love that it’s packed with goodness (protein to keep me feeling full and energized!) and it’s already prepared so I don’t have to spend any time thinking about it! Makes a healthy lifestyle that much easier to obtain!
2. KEEP SNACKS IN THE CAR.
Oftentimes, I’m out and about and find myself needing a pick-me-up, and when this happens, there is NOTHING worse than having NO snacks on hand! Nobody likes to be hangry, but a hangry pregnant person is a whole other level! ;) One of my favorite things that I’ve started doing more recently, is to keep my favorite healthy (non-perishable) snacks in the middle console of my car, so I am never without something to snack on! Trail mix, nuts, healthy bars and dried fruit are all great options for this! Bonus: if the kids get hungry, you’ve got snacks for them too! As for the yogurt, just bring it along in a cooler or something insulated with an ice pack to keep it cool!
3. MAKE HEALTHY CHOICES.
If you do find yourself in a crunch and needing to buy something while on the go, make healthy choices! You can even find a healthy option on the run if you need to- pass on the chips and go for the almonds or a piece of fruit and some FAGE yogurt instead! It IS possible, it just may take a little bit of extra thought sometimes. ;) But, I promise, it is totally doable and you will feel SO much better when you make the right choices!
I hope you found these tips helpful! What are some ways you eat healthy during the day, with the busy-ness of life?
