In our rushing world, it is not easy to find time for having a complete, healthy meal. In most of the cases, we gulp down a cup of coffee, or soda, chew on a piece of hamburger or bakery and that is all.
It is no surprise that we usually feel ourselves tired, and burned out and get various illnesses regularly.
You are what you eat! If you do not provide the right type and amount of nutrients for your body, do not be surprised that it does not function well.
Even making some small changes in your lifestyle can get great results. Here I would like to share some of my nutrition tips that do not require huge changes even if you are busy all day long.
Bring a Water Bootle Everywhere
Most of us do not take in enough water daily which can cause dehydration and several diseases in the long run. You should drink at least 2-3 liters of water daily to keep your body hydrated.
Buy a small bottle and fill it up with mineral water! Put that bottle next to you and get used to drinking some all day long. You can even buy a collapsible water bottle which is even more comfortable.
Reasons to drink more water
Have a Piece of Healthy Snack in Your Bag
It can be anything that your can consume fast and nutritious. For example, I usually take a piece of fruit with me such as bananas, oranges, apples, dried figs or my home made snacks. You can also take some nuts.
Have Healthy Snacks While You Watch TV
The worst types of foods are mainly the ones we pick in front of the TV. If you get rid of those bad foods, you make a huge step towards a healthier life.
If you cannot live without eating something, get healthy snacks. For example, fruits, veggies, nuts and other healthy snacks. By the way, forget soda even the diabetic one! Drink water or flavor it with some lemon or orange.
Healthy snacks under 100 calories
Have a smoothie for breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Hence, you should not neglect it. I know, most of us do not have time to sit down and have a complete, freshly-made breakfast. For those, smoothie is a good alternative. You can make a smoothie in no time, or you can make it the day before. Gulping down a portion does not take so much time, but it will provide the right type and amount of nutrients you need to start the day.
Benefits of smoothies
Go to Healthy Restaurants
Fortunately, there are more and more restaurants that offer healthy meals made from quality ingredients. If you have no time to make your dishes prefer these health food restaurants. They are maybe a bit more expensive, but your health is the first.
Drink Tea Instead of Coffee
To tell the truth, I’m a coffee lover, but I always drink my homemade one without sugar. The problem with the coffees you buy in the streets is that they are usually full of sugar and other artificial ingredients.
On the other hand, tea is as good freshener and there hundreds of types of teas out there. You can make your tea at home and bring it in your mentioned bottle. But do not use sugar.
The best is the green tea which has many health benefits, and it even helps with losing weight.
These are my nutrition tips for busy people. If it is possible, you should also include some exercising even it is 10 minutes daily. Give your body what it needs, and it will function well.
Always take time to eat something healthy even if you work like mad! 🙂
