Easy Healthy Recipes for Women on the Go
It’s hard to fit in a healthy diet when work, school, kids, and everyday fiascoes consume our lives. Sometimes us ladies aren’t lucky enough to even fix our hair, let alone cook a healthy meal and work out every day. It seems like some people are capable of making it look so easy! Take Beyonce’ for example, one day she is pregnant and the next day she’s dancing on stage with a perfect body. Most of us probably don’t have chefs or personal trainers. However, not to fear, there are ways to make leading a healthier lifestyle easier.
Step 1: FILL YOUR FRIDGE WITH HEALTHY FOODS– The next time you go grocery shopping fill your cart with vegetables, fruits, yogurt, nuts, oatmeal, chicken, etc. If your refrigerator is full of healthy foods there is no way to eat badly in your home.
Step 2: PRE PACK YOUR LUNCH– By pre-packing your lunch there is no need to go to a fast food restaurant on your lunch break. This way you can eat healthy while saving your money. Hey! You might even have time to take a walk around the building, for a little exercise.
Step 3: ELIMINATE SODAS AND JUICES FROM YOUR DIET– Although some juices might look as if they are healthy, a lot of times they are not. Apple juice can have up to 48 grams of sugar. Water is always the best way to go!
