With my busy schedule, how
do I find healthy foods?

When my mom didn't like what the school offered at lunch, she packed me a lunch in my Batman lunchbox. Mom can't fix me lunch anymore (darn it), but I can still take it with me. With a little planning, I can prepare and store several days of low fat meals to take to work. Single serving cans of tuna are a favorite, and sandwiches without cheese or mayo can be exellent fast meals.

Sometimes you just can't take it with you. What do you do when you are hungry and all around you are fast food joints? I've heard a local "expert" tout the benefit of this concoction; a cup of yogurt, with oats and raisins added. With complex carbs and fiber from the oats, simple sugars from the raisins, and milk protein, this is not a bad idea, if you can conveniently find the ingredients and mix them together. Negatives; messy, time consuming, and it'll cost you around $2.00. There is a great alternative- an energy bar. Most bars are high in complex carbohydrates from oats and other grains, simple sugars from fruits, and milk protein. Most energy bars also have added vitamins and minerals. You just peel the wrapper and eat it. And best yet, you can get them almost anywhere for around a dollar.

If you would rather drink your lunch, there are meal replacement mixes that you can take with, mix with water or juice or milk, and have a quick nutritious meal that satisfies your appetite. The most common formula in meal replacement mixes is high in protein, with moderate carbs

Some meal replacements add extra ingredients, such as creatine, glutamine, or glucosamine. If you are buying these supplements separately now, you may be able to save time and money by buying a meal replacement with all of your favorites in one mix. SNS Lean Machine is a great example of this category.

If you're looking for a low carb protein source, SNS Whey Protein or Dynamic Fitness Superfood Protein Powder.s are a great tasting way to add protein to your favorite foods, or to make a shake or smoothie. A protein shake is a great way to avoid snacking on high fat and high sugar foods, late in the evening.

 

Meals that you make at home are almost always the best, but if you don't have the time to make them, meal replacement mixes.
