As a nutrition coach, the number one excuse I hear for not eating well is "I don't have time!". It's true- eating well is a commitment, and it takes time and energy to do it right. Thankfully, when you start eating right, you have more energy to do it!
The best tip I can give you, is to prepare and plan. So this week, we are going to get you started. First, spend a few minutes thinking about healthy snacks that you enjoy. Perhaps a few of them are on the Heart Healthy list from last week. Make a list of these choices, and hit the grocery store!
Most veggies hold up well if you take the time to wash them and cut them up when you get home. Fruits are usually best to prepare when ready to eat. bit make a great take along snack.
This week, your challenge is to pack 2 healthy snacks each day- assuming you leave the house for work or school- if not- just plan two healthy snacks--- and eat them! This may mean that you have to turn down the afternoon cookie- so that you can get in your cup of yogurt (but, isn't that kind of the point??). So after you've had your snacks-- add them to your calendar of heart healthy foods from last week.
Good luck with this weeks challenge.
