The best way to avoid this is to prepare your lunch (or dinner) the night before. You don’t have to be a world famous chef and make fancy meals, but having something prepared from home is healthier and will be convenient during those rushed mornings.
Try different types of meats, vegetables and fruits. Instead of eating the same ham and cheese sandwich all the time, try sautéing some onions and peppers, add some mozzarella cheese and you have a tastier sandwich in ten minutes – and a great way to add vegetables in the mix if you’re not a huge fan.
A salad may not be filling but there are other options besides that. Instead of a burger and fries you can try a pita with grilled chicken instead of fried chicken, or a veggie wrap with a side of quinoa for protein. You may need to look around and see what your options are but a slice of pizza every now and then won’t hurt either.
It’s Okay to Indulge… Sometimes.
Eating healthy doesn’t necessarily mean you have to give up the stuff that tastes good but more than likely is bad for you. It’s okay to gorge on something you love every now and then to satisfy a craving. It only becomes a problem if you do it all the time and the unhealthy stuff is all you eat. Taking care of your self is not easy and involves commitment and discipline.
You work hard all day at work and try to eat healthy to try and prevent health problems. That being said, it’s okay to go wild and stuff your face with wings, fries, chips, chocolate or anything else you really like but shouldn’t be eating all the time. A healthy lifestyle involves balance and it’s perfectly alright to enjoy the things you love…in moderation.
