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.
