Need a quick breakfast option? Here are some quick, easy combos and options:
- Hard-boiled eggs + fruit
- Yogurt + nuts
- Oatmeal + peanut butter
- Freezer Breakfast Burritos– I recommend Tortilla Land or Siete tortillas. Make this lower carb by removing the tater tots!
- Rx bars or Lara Bars
- Freezer Eggs Cup
- Overnight oats
- Whole wheat toast + egg + avocado
Try to have some sort of protein with your breakfast. This will keep you full and fueled because proteins digest slower than carbohydrates!
Meal prepping lunch
1). Have meals pre-cooked in Tupperware containers so they are easy to pop in the microwave and already pre-portioned out. This can help you avoid overeating and temptations to stop at a fast food restaurant if they are already prepared.
2). Keep it simple! Don’t complicate things. Aim for a balanced, nutritious meal that won’t make you sluggish and tired midday. Focus on protein, healthy fats, fruits and veggies.
3). Avoid buying/having junk food available in your car or truck. When you are making trips to the grocery store, limit or eliminate highly processed food items from your list like potato chips, crackers, cookies. “Foods” like Cheez-its are easy to grab as a snack, but hard to put down. Do yourself a favor – don’t put them in your shopping cart.
4). Don’t limit yourself. Nowadays you can bring hot and cold options. Pack a cooler or a bring a portable food heater like this one found on Amazon!
