4 Healthy Foods To Stock Up On!

Catherine here,

If you’re in a rush, resist the urge to hit the drive through line!

Don’t ruin that diet and all your good efforts with making bad choices because you’re busy or because you haven’t gone grocery shopping recently.

There are a few foods you should try to have on hand…and whether it’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you can be creative with these items, be full, and still be healthy!

4 Items To Have On Hand

  • -Frozen chicken!  Purchasing frozen, skinless chicken breasts in bulk is cost effective and will last a while in the freezer.  Perfect portion control comes easily when you freeze them individually!
  • -Frozen Veggies! We all know that eating fresh vegetables in season is the best option, but frozen veggies are worth stocking up on.  Look for veggies flash frozen – they keep the highest amount of nutrients.
  • -Eggs! Protein filled, portion safe eggs are great to keep on hand. For a quick snack, hard boil an egg, but make sure to skip that salt.
  • -Grains! Brown rice, cous cous, or other lentils, if you prefer, keep well in the cupboard and can be purchased in bulk.  Skip white rice or anything else bleached or with additives.

You can use a combination of these items together, such as eggs with vegetables in the morning in an omelet.  You could pair the chicken with a heaping side of veggies.

Can you think of any good recipes using just the items above and maybe some spices?  Tell me in the comments below or on my Facebook page.

To your health,

Catherine

      We prefer you not to because we want this diet to be as healthy and free of unhealthy substitutes. If it doesn’t cause you to crave sugar it might be okay if you absolutely need it!!

      If you use stevia or skim milk or soy milk just not the whole milk that helps some. Try to cure your cravings for sweets with fruits. Try a banana frozen or blend it with fruit and lowfat milk for a low calorie smoothie.

    • Catherine

      • pam

        What about an egg? I just cannot eat a salad for breakfast.

        • Cat…

          You could eat 2 egg whites with some veggies on the veggie days.

            Just a note to let you know I added red pepper flakes and cayenne pepper to my soup. 1/2 tsp each. If one likes spicy it is really good. We had very little left after my family finished it.
