Whether you’re traveling out of town for business or conducting a Zoom meeting at home, you don’t have to give up healthy eating because you’re busy. The fact is, choosing to eat healthy is even more important when you’re trying to keep up with the demands of running a business.
Therefore, it’s important to become more conscious about what you eat while you’re busy. Choosing to eat healthier will help your body handle stress better, maintain a healthy body weight and allow you to experience better overall health that can increase your ability to successfully run your business.
As you hustle about your busy business day, use the following tips to help you eat healthy despite where you my find yourself!
Tip # 1: Eating Healthy While Dining Out
With tempting menus, large portions and a festive atmosphere, it’s easy to consume large amounts of empty calories when you eat out. Therefore, when you eat out, be aware of your portions and ask for a to-go box when you feel satiated (satisfied). Ask for a “Lean” menu if it’s available and be mindful of how much you eat.
Tip # 2: Healthy Eating at the Airport
If you frequently travel to conduct business, the airport can be a very stressful place. Long wait times, layovers and the stress of a long flight. Therefore, before you arrive at the airport, have a healthy meal, drink plenty of water and ensure you have healthy snacks on hand. If you need food while waiting for your flight, find healthy options to grab. Aim for clean eats and limit heavy foods that make you feel tired and lethargic.
Tip # 3: Healthy Eating In Your Car
Whether it’s a long commute to a business meeting or shuffling your kids to and from softball practice or school, it is a necessity to always have healthy snacks available so that when you get hungry – you have them. There’s a Burger King, Mc Donalds and Taco Bell on every corner! Avoid consuming unhealthy calories and gaining unwanted pounds by being nutritionally prepared! Purchase a lunch box or store non-perishable snacks in your glove box or trunk.
Tip # 4: Healthy Eating at Home
Mornings in most homes are a hustle and bustle. To avoid this stress, make sure you plan breakfast ahead of time. To make breakfast time easy, prepare easy to grab breakfast items like fresh fruit, Greek Yogurt, a protein drink (click here to view some of our favorite proteins) or night oats that can be prepared the night before. Breakfast will fuel your day and your mood, therefore, limit skipping breakfast!
