Great Snacks & Eating On the Go & at Restaurants

January 5, 2012

We all have busy lives and sometimes don’t have the time to make ourselves the best meals, or are eating on the fly; here’s a few tips and ideas to help keep your body balanced, clean and vibrant!

Foods to take with you On the Go:

* in zip lock baggies, put single serving sizes of …raw nuts, almonds, sunflower seeds, prunes, rasins, walnuts, shaved coconut, figs, dates – etc.

* zip lock bags are also great for… fresh fruits and veg – grapes, orange segments, pineapple chunks, mango slices etc.  Or cherry tomatoes, cucumber slices, orange pepper slices, fresh peas, even sprouts are great!

What to Order at a Restaurant:

* Go for grilled, poached, broiled or stir fried (with minimal oil) and side-step deep fried.

* Ask for whole grain, and an olive oil/balsamic dip rather than butter or cheeses on breads.

* Have a salad as an appetizer

* If choosing a pasta, have a tomato, veggie or olive oil sauce sauce rather than a cheese sauce.

*Have extra vegetables, rather than potatoes, pasta or rice when having a meat or fish meal

* When possible go for a whole grain wrap/pita, with plenty of fresh and roasted vegetables, and possibly seeds, chick peas, lentils etc.. (not fried)  See sauce notes above 🙂  Djion is also a great option!

* Vegetable soups, nori rice & veg wraps are also a nice option when available, as well as fresh fruit cups – and real (blended in front of you) smoothies.

Cheers to your health and making wise decisions for your body, mind and spirit!
