You just need to use some guidelines to make sure you’re making good food choices.
Our top 5 healthy eating tips for busy babes on the go!
#1: Stock your kitchen
Eating right is about a MILLION times easier when your house is stocked with healthy, easy food options. And even if you’re rocking a mini-fridge or have a bunch of roommates that share your fridge space, we’ve got you covered with good options. My go-tos are:
- Hard-boiled eggs
- Chia seeds, almond milk, and cocoa powder for chocolate chia seed pudding
- Apples and nut butter
- Cottage cheese
- Frozen fruits and veggies (they’re just as nutritious but usually way cheaper!)
- Raw nuts
#2: Prep your meals
OMG, when I’m busy, meal prepping saves me. Seriously, it’s crazy how much just taking like an hour out of your Sunday to get ahead of your food game for the week changes things! I put on my fave playlist, put up my hair, and nail it! The Busy Babe Guide has some tips to help you prep plus recipes you can use.
My fave tip? Start by prepping the meal that’s hardest for you, whether that’s breakfast ‘cause you always snooze your alarm or dinner since you know you’re not gonna feel like cooking after a long day.
#3: Rock it at restaurants
Don’t blow your #goals just because you’re eating out! The guide’s got tips you can use at every happy hour, including guilt-free cocktails you can order and guidelines to help you order smartly. Here are a few you should know:
- Get your dressings and sauces on the side
- Don’t be afraid to ask your server if swaps are possible (bye-bye, bun!)
- Eat half and take home leftovers (you just saved yourself from making lunch tomorrow!)
- Order veggies with your meal, even if it’s a side of them along with your entree
#4: Pick foods that multi-task
You’re a multi-tasking queen — so your food should pull double-duty, too! In the Busy Babe Guide, we give you a bunch of options for foods that help you reach your #goals, whether that’s acing an exam or looking killer on spring break. Wanna banish that belly bloat? Here are a few of our top ingredient picks from the guide that you can work into your next meal:
- Apple cider vinegar
#5: Know your portions
This one is such a breeze, babe.
