SUSHI! Good, fast, but expensive :(
A lot of people feel trapped by their busy lifestyles when they 're trying to eat healthy. After all, who has time to cook when they need to commute two hours each way, pick the kids up from school, and do the laundry? Eating healthy with a busy lifestyle does not have to be complicated. Here are a few steps that can help you eat well even when you 're constantly crunched for time.
1) Simplify Your Diet
One of the easiest ways to eat healthier when you 're strapped for time is to simplify your diet. You might want to have that fancy curry reciple you 've just learned, but do you really have the time for it? Stick to the basics of what you like, buy them in bulk, and mix those up over the week in a few basic meals. You 'll be surprised at how much you actually like simple foods. For instance, one of my favorite meals for lunch is a simple microwaved baked potato with some sunny side up eggs. It might sound weird, but it definitely gets the job done and is healthy and quick to boot! If you 're not into cooking at all and eat out for every meal (tsk tsk) the following tip will probably help you much more.
2) Eating Out Like a Pro!
Not everyone has time to make a baked potato and eggs. Some people don 't even enjoy cooking at all! In order to eat healthy while eating out, you really only need to ask yourself the following question: Is what I 'm eating something that someone from the 1940s would eat? Think about it in terms of how processed the food is and how big the portion size is. There weren 't too many obese people back then, so they must have been doing something right! Portion size should be about what you can fit in both of your hands (unless you have freakishly small/large hands). Also, when you eat out DRINK WATER! In the San Francisco Bay Area eating out like a pro has been drastically simplified as everything has calorie listings. I tend to go for whatever has
