How to be Healthy on the Go - Meal Prep on Sundays

1. Prepare

There's nothing new in this one.... Sunday meal prep is one of our favourite things. Every Sunday we spend chopping vegetables, making a big pot of brown rice or pasta for the week... This makes it easier to stay on track when things get busy.

Even if you are on the go.

Is it just us, or does that little citrusy splash in your water make you automatically feel better about your decisions?  When you head out for the day, bring a water bottle and put in a spritz of lemon. It will make you feel indulgent and science has backed that it keeps cravings at bay.

How to Make Healthy Decision on the Go - Opt for Mexican

6. Make Good Decisions

If you didn't have time to make your lunch, make healthy decisions for your fast meals. Fast food restaurants have more healthy options than ever before, and many of them taste great. Plus, with more and more options poppng up, it's easy to skip a fast food burger or deep fried chicken sandwich. Maybe find some local taco joints instead!

7. Don't Deprive Yourself

There's nothing worse than eating and still feeling hungry.  It's all about balance. Doing away with carbs will just make you miss carbs.  Everything in moderation, and when you achieve moderation, eating healthy is a lifestyle, not a diet. Go ahead, eat a burger every now and again. Instead of fries, have a side salad. Or instead of beef, opt for chicken.
