Must the Busy Holiday Season Produce Poor Eating?

“When my schedule gets crazy, it seems difficult to choose the right meal,” Victoria states. Once we have too much on our minds, we begin to ignore important details; the solution could be to make a simple eating plan ahead of time. This will help you eat more healthfully during the busy times. Nothing has to be complicated. Keep your meals balanced and consider food groups, rather than food items. For example, if you have limited time to prepare a meal, consider eating fruits and/or vegtables, add a protein item, a carbohydrate, and include some healthy fat. The food item will not matter. You can saute some chicken in olive oil (protein and fat), open a can of pineapple in it’s own juice (fruit), and saute them in the pan alongside the chicken. Serve over quinoa or brown rice (carbohydrate). There may be days when a bowl of oatmeal (carbohydrate) will suffice for dinner. Make it with milk (protein) and add fruit. When time allows, and schedules are not so busy, you’ll have more time to think and/or prepare a more elaborate healthy meal. Keep it simple, and use my Five-Finger Food Guide.
