Easy Tips for Healthy Eating On The Go

If you’re even considering making any kind of change to your food and daily dietary intake, your lifestyle or anything, please read the following:

About 66.3 % of American adults are overweight or obese according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

If that trend continues, out of 100 of your friends, family & co-workers, 66 will weigh more than doctors recommend.

For many of them, this extra weight will cause serious health problems.

You don’t have to be one of those 66.

THIS is why I’m here…


Healthy Eating on the Go

I’m like so many of you.

I strive to eat healthy but sometimes, even though I try really hard, I am rushing around with NOTHING to eat!

What’s a girl to do?

There’s no use in trying to say that I don’t eat fast food or junk food or even things I know are really wrong for me.

But what about those times when you want to eat the best you can but you’re just not at home?

Have no fear!  You really CAN do it!

When you need to eat healthy but you’re at the mercy of fast food chains or franchised restaurants, follow my simple tips to avoid feeling guilty in the morning!

Annette’s Top Tips for Healthy Eating on the Go

1. Be realistic. If you are out and about & you need to eat, just eat.  No use in starving yourself because you’ll end up eating twice as much later on.

2. Skip the “Biggie” Size. Just because you can get more for your money doesn’t mean that you should.  Split the meal with a friend or bring half of it home.

3. Hit up a Local Supermarket. Most supermarkets now offer pre-made meals and sandwiches.  If you feel comfortable with that, go for it.  Otherwise, start looking around the aisles and see what your best, healthy options are.  Do the best you can.

4. Check out the Menu for a healthier option. Many restaurants now offer a “guiltless” menu aimed at the health conscious customer.  They even go as far as to include the nutritional information.  Many larger cities are now making this mandatory- better for you!

5. If in doubt, bring healthy snacks. I keep non-perishable snacks in my car, just in case.  If I’d rather have fruits and vegetables, I’ll plan ahead and carry them with me.

6. Drink water and have water available to you when you need it. If you’ll be traveling around in a car or have any other means of storage, leave some extra bottles of water there, just in case.

7. Skip the higher calorie Sodas & Juices. Water is your zero calorie friend.  Leave the sugar and caffeine to someone else.  You’ll feel better if you stick to water.

8. Leave the potato chips at home. If you need to munch, start reading labels to find healthier options than potato chips.  Check out the pretzels and tortilla chips.  Are they better or worse?  Many brands are now offering, baked instead of fried, lower sodium options.

9. Ask that sauces & condiments be left on the side. As yummy as these condiments may be, they’re not always worth the extra fat, calories and sodium.  Use what you need, leave what you don’t.

10. Prepare ahead of time, if possible. Know yourself.  Know your travel partners.  Know where you’re going and do a quick search before you go so that you know what’s in the area and what your options are.

When in doubt, don’t worry about it!  Chances are that ONE meal won’t be the end of your healthy habits!

Do the best you can and most of all, enjoy your meals!
