Wellness Wednesday Tip: Plan Healthy Snacks

Food Nutrition


Plan ahead with healthy snacks - at your desk, in your car, or in your travel bag. Having whole food options within reach when hunger strikes will help ensure you don't make poor choices. Try packing a few handfuls of raw almonds. Almonds pack a decent dose of protein and do a great job of curbing hunger. Or try cutting up some veggies such as carrots, cauliflower, or broccoli. These kinds of vegetables have significant nutritional value and will stay fresh throughout the day. Another good option for food on the go is a protein shake. Carrying protein powder is easy, and you can always find water or milk to make your shake. It only takes a second and with the right protein powder, this can be an excellent meal replacement.

Wellness Wednesday Tip: Grab the Good Stuff

Plan ahead for your lunches. This is a critical step in maintaining a healthy diet. Don't leave it to chance. If you do, you'll be much more susceptible to fall into old habits and reach for something unhealthy. The next time you go to the supermarket, make a list and buy specific ingredients for your lunchtime meals. Make sure you prepare them ahead of time. It is important that they are convenient, nutritious, and delicious!

Wellness Wednesday Tip: Forgive Yourself

Give yourself a break! An occasional indulgence in a high-calorie treat won't negate all of your hard work. It's ok to diverge and "cheat" every now and then. Just make it the exception and not the rule! Do not give that treat so much power. Instead of focusing on guilt or feeling bad about yourself, just get back on track by trying to fit a little extra exercise in over the next few days.
