In today’s fast-paced society, healthy food choices are harder to come by due to time constraints. Many hardworking individuals end up resorting to unhealthy food choices such as candy bars or fast food restaurants. Nutrient-dense, quality foods can be made in minutes before leaving the house with a little bit of planning; and can be packaged in small bags or containers without the need for refrigeration. These snacks can serve to manage hunger responses throughout the day, and at the same time diminish unnecessary caloric consumption brought upon by psychologically-driven appetite.
Healthy snacks should be easily-accessible and can be stored in the car, desk drawers, bags etc. It is important that food choices have a healthy combination of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Be sure to keep packaged snacks in the caloric range of 150-200 calories; this will help satisfy hunger and maintain blood glucose levels to limit overconsumption.
The following food items will help you manage your hunger in today’s fast-paced world:
Juice Plus+ Complete Nutrition Bars: provide balanced nutrition on- the-go. Our variety of delicious Wholesome Grains + Cranberries and Spiced Apple + Raisin bars are not only tasty but packed with protein and fiber to help you replace empty calories with healthy ones. Low-glycemic, gluten free, non- dairy and 100% vegan – Complete Nutrition Bars deliver a perfect snack for any diet.
Juice Plus+ Complete: is a whole-food-based beverage mix that provides balanced nutrition in every scoop. Juice Plus+ Complete can be used in any number of ways: as a healthful “on-the-go” breakfast, pre-exercise energy drink, post-workout recovery drink, or a late night snack. This combo comes with two pouches each of delicious French Vanilla and Dutch Chocolate Complete flavors.
Green Ice Tea: A calorie-free beverage doesn’t qualify as a real snack, but if you find yourself scouting the kitchen just because you’re bored, rather than hungry, this tasty drink may just hit the spot. Plus, green tea has been shown to help dieters lose more weight, according to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, thanks to its metabolism-boosting antioxidant compound called EGCG.
Sunflower lentil spread with pita bread: Lentils are a good source of iron, a metabolism-boosting nutrient that 20% of us don’t get enough of. This savory recipe makes four 180-calorie servings, with 10 grams each of protein and fiber.
A Can Of Tuna: Tuna (packaged in water) is another great source of lean protein plus healthy Omega-3s. For about 200 calories, you can enjoy 3 ounces of light tuna and 6 whole-wheat crackers—complete with 3 grams of fiber and 20 grams of protein.
Eat more Avocado! Avocado-eaters are 50% less likely to suffer from metabolic syndrome, a collection of health measures that predict your risk of heart disease, stroke, and type-2 diabetes. It makes sense that avocado eaters would get more of the good stuff found in the fruit, like monounsaturated fat, vitamin K, folate, potassium, vitamin E, lutein, magnesium, vitamin C, and vitamin B6.
Corn vs. Flour tortillas: Corn has nearly half the calories of flour, Corn has twice as much fiber than flour, Corn has three times the amount of magnesium than flour which helps sustain healthy muscle tissue, Flour has three times the amount of fat than corn, and last but not least corn has very low sodium in comparison to flour tortillas. Verdict: Eat more corn!
Trail Mix: Create your own combination by mixing dried fruits with no added sugars, and any assortment of nuts. You can also try some pre-packaged snack options, keeping in mind to watch for sugars and fats per serving.
Whole-Grain Cereal: Cereal is a great snack option for busy schedules as most whole-grain cereals are high in fiber, protein and micronutrients. However, individuals should be mindful of adhering to appropriate serving sizes and steer away from high-sugar products.
5 tips to save you time and energy in order to maintain those fitness and nutrition goals throughout the new year!It’s easy to tell yourself you can train hard on the ‘good’ days when you have lots of time on the weekends but what about the busy days or the ‘bad’ days when you are sore and tired. Anyone can workout on a good day but it’s the individuals who train through the bad days that will achieve their fitness goals sooner. The following 5 tips are written here in order to make your life a bit easier and more efficient:
1) Stick to the plan and achieve your goals no matter what!It usually takes more mental and physical effort when you stall with your workouts then it does to actually get up and go get it done. If working out is something that is very hard for you to get motivated for than make sure to plan your workouts in the morning so you get it done before a long work day when you are least expected to train or go to the gym. Juice Plus capsules are ideal for individuals who are always on the go and can’t get enough fruits, vegetables, and berries in their diet every single day. The Juice Plus complete bars are a perfect snack with the right amount of daily nutrition and calories in every bar. Juice Plus+ Complete Nutrition Bars provide balanced nutrition on- the-go. The variety of delicious Wholesome Grains + Cranberries and Spiced Apple + Raisin bars are not only tasty but packed with protein and fiber to help you replace empty calories with healthy ones. Low-glycemic, gluten free, non- dairy and 100% vegan – Complete Nutrition Bars deliver a perfect snack for any diet. Shopping at the local grocery store during the week can rob you of valuable minutes. Take time during the weekend to plan the week’s meals, and hit the store once per week or so instead of multiple trips.
3) Stay focused and don’t get easily distracted… stay the course to a healthy lifestyleIt’s so easy these days to get distracted by all the events going on in our lives so make sure to find a balance. If you have multiple friends and family asking to meet up for dinner and lunch try and space it out a bit and gauge what you are consuming while eating out. It is healthy to say no and not try and do too much in order to get your workouts in during the week. When you get your workouts done you will have more energy and feel healthier while feeling accomplished. Write down your goals and believe that you will see results sooner and prevent injury by maintaining a time efficient workout. Have fun while engaging your mind as well as your body so that you will be more consistent with your exercise plan and reach your fitness goals faster.
4) Prioritize your life and organize errands accordinglyYou are only as strongest as your weakest link so make sure to focus and prioritize your life in order to cause as less stress as possible. Stress from a disorganized lifestyle can drain your daily mental and physical energy. Organize your errands and map out your week in order to make more time for training, sleep, and overall good health.
5) Ask for help from friends and familyDon’t be afraid to ask for a little assistance every once in awhile. After all that’s what friends and family are for! This support system will help in many ways throughout the week as you live your busy lifestyle. Let the chores accumulate and do them in bunches once or twice a week. Sometimes taking back your time is about delegation. So whether that’s asking a spouse or partner to pick up groceries or getting the kids to put away the dishes, that’s time back in your day. Last but not least, include your friends and family in activities that you participate in throughout the year and ask them for your understanding in your new quest to find happiness through good fitness and nutrition goals.
