What do Snap Peas and Eggs Have in Common?


Eating healthy is not a diet, it’s a lifestyle.

People who choose healthy foods find it easier to lose weight, cope with stress, and sleep better. -TODAY

We know we should eat more nutritious foods, but darn if that delicious bagel isn’t amazing looking. Or an extra slice of pizza. Or a second slice of cake. Well, now I’m hungry.

Back on track: we know we should eat better, but it’s hard when vending machine snacks or fast food is so close at hand. The solution: meal prep. And it doesn’t have to be five hours on Sunday so your weekend somehow becomes more work. It can be snack prep, just a few meals, or only every other week to start getting on the right track.

Here are some tips for starting with a good plan and good options:

  1. Chop up carrot sticks, celery, or snap peas, and add some hummus in a little jar. Put together a half-dozen and you’re set for the week.
  2. Keep black beans on hand for protein options. You can add them to salads, with a wrap, or in bowls with rice and veggies.
  3. Roast a chicken, or tray of chicken breasts. Saves tons of time during the week to just reheat.
  4. Hard boil some eggs – a portable snack. You can also slice them in salads or on sandwiches.
  5. More eggs, but this time for egg muffins. Make tiny quiche-style muffins at the beginning of the week and you’ve got breakfast all week long!
  6. Roast some veggies on a big tray – you can make a huge batch and eat a bit every day.

Grab some fresh fruit to eat throughout the week for snacks and you’ll be set!

Nutrition has a big impact on how we feel on a daily basis. It’s surprising how well we feel when we eat right, so give it a try!
