5 TIPS FOR EATING HEALTHY ON THE GO: A GUIDE FOR WORKING AWAY FROM HOME

Eating healthy on the go can be challenging, especially when working away from home. With busy schedules that I know all too well, it's not always possible to 'prep like a boss' as all these fitness freaks might tell you to do. It can be tempting to grab fast food or convenience items, but these choices can quickly add up and negatively impact your health.

The key to eating healthy on the go is planning, seeking more nutritious options, and being mindful of portion sizes. Here are five tips to help you do just that...

  1. Plan ahead: Before you hit the road, pack healthy meals and snacks that are easy to grab and go. This can include fruits, veggies, nuts, yoghurt, or whole-grain crackers.

  2. Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water throughout the day and avoid sugary drinks like soda or energy drinks [but let's face it, a sugar-free Monster never hurt anyone 🤔, don't look at me like that]

  3. Seek healthy options: Look for restaurants or cafes offering more nutritious options like salads, grilled chicken, or fish. Avoid fast food restaurants and instead opt for food with plenty of nutrients.

  4. Don't skip meals: Skipping meals can lead to overeating later on, so be sure to eat regularly to keep your energy levels up and maintain a healthy diet.

  5. Be mindful of portion sizes: Be aware of how much you're eating, and make an effort to eat reasonable portions. Use smaller plates and bowls to help control portion sizes.

In conclusion, eating healthy while working away from home can be a challenge, but with a bit of planning and effort, it's possible to maintain a healthy diet. So, pack your food, seek out healthier options, stay hydrated, don't skip meals, and be mindful of portion sizes to help ensure that you are fueling your body with the proper nutrients.
