When you are on the go, it can be hard to fit in a meal that compliments your healthy fitness choices. Planning and preparing your meals is a sure way to save you money, time, and unwanted calories. Here are a few way to start meal planning and make it an easy addition to supporting your healthy lifestyle.
Season meats three different ways using one pan
If you’re sticking to lean meats like chicken, chowing down on the same flavors can get tiring after a while. Save time without boring your taste buds by preparing two or three variations of meats at once, using aluminum foil dividers in your pan. Sriracha, BBQ, honey mustard — you can have it all.
go a long way
They are the perfect protein filled food for the person on the go. Pop them into your salad or sprinkle them with some pepper and chow it down on your way out the door. Hard boiled eggs are perfect for a quick breakfast, lunch, snack, or dinner.
Pre-dice, slice, or chop your vegetables so all you have to do is throw them into a salad or side dish. When cooking vegetables don’t waist 40 minutes on one batch of broccoli, try baking all of your vegetables in the same pan. Fast-roasting vegetables include asparagus, mushrooms and cherry tomatoes; slow-roasting vegetables include carrots, cauliflower, onions, potatoes and parsnips.
Portion out your favorite snacks and identify what the serving size should be. Remember snacking is good for your metabolism, but overeating is not.
