Make Healthy Choices Automatic

This Sparked Me!

Choose a few healthy Breakfast and Lunch combos that you enjoy and know will meet your daily nutrition and calorie goals.

I use this You On A Diet strategy to make my busy work week easier and to stay on track. For example, I make a big batch of healthy, hearty soup on the weekend, and then pack individual bowls. Each day for lunch, I just grab one of these, some whole grain crackers and a piece of fruit. Easy!

    I start by making sure I have healthy choices readily available in the house. Having cut proportioned bowls of lettuce, ready in the fridge. Then bowls of tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, and other healthy options to make fast salads and veggie snacks. This is very helpful for a busy life style. Eliminating unhealthy snacks from the house and adding healthy and tasty options keeps you focused.

    This one stood out to me today because I am planning ahead. I live in a rural area. Tomorrow I will be "in town" for most of the day. While I am preparing my healthy choices today I will also pack for tomorrow.

I won't get caught short! I won't let the aromas of the restaurants tempt me.

I am also going to make some baked yam chips for hubby so if he gets home before I do he'll be less tempted to grab something from his personal stash.
