“My life is so busy that I have a hard time eating healthy. Any tips for someone who is trying to eat nutritiously on the go?” P.C.

I can appreciate that sometimes life is so busy that it becomes difficult to stick to a healthy eating plan. Here are some ideas for eating on the go:

Breakfast
Break for breakfast no matter how busy you are. Try these balanced, quick breakfast options:

  • Organic plain yogurt and some mixed raisins, granola and dried fruit
  • A couple pieces of fruit and you’re off
  • Oatmeal and fruit
  • Peanut butter and banana sandwich
  • High energy smoothie
