Fooditude1Nutrition on the run isn’t always easy. Here are a few tips to help you on your way... Eat breakfast! Breakfast means “break the fast” and though it’s the most important meal of the day, that doesn’t mean it has to be time-consuming. Good, quick options include yogurt, whole grain toast with nut butter, and fruit with a high fiber cereal.

 

Think ahead! Pack travel-friendly foods in a small cooler or bag before you head out the door. Bottled water, fresh fruit and veggies, cheese sticks, whole-grain crackers and low-sugar cereal portioned into baggies are some healthy options. Having these foods on hand will not only prevent you from getting too hungry, but they’ll also prevent you from making poor food choices later in the day. Eat regularly! Skipping meals often times leads to unhealthy food choices. Don’t go more than 4-5 hours between meals. Eating out!

 

Even though it may feel like a special occasion, dining out is no time to abandon healthy eating habits. To control your calorie intake, avoid appetizers, fried foods, sugary beverages and the free bread. If possible, check out the menu ahead of time for nutritional information. Eat slowly! Wherever you are, taking your time to eat will prevent you from overeating. Fast eaters are often over-eaters.
