Prepare Meals Ahead of Time
Do yourself a favor and prep your meals ahead of time. On Sundays after doing your groceries, pre-cut your veggies and other ingredients, cook in advance, and pre-assemble the meals in lunch boxes. You’ll have meals ready for the week saving yourself from eating unhealthy on busy days and nights.
It’s one of the simplest and smartest ways to make healthy eating habitual.
Don’t be afraid to add some fresh fruit and herbs to your water for a detoxifying drink. It tastes great, flushes out toxins, and will cleanse your body effortlessly.
Make Freezer Meals
Freezer meals are the best. You prepare them in advance, store in your fridge, and dump in your cooker when needed. They save you so much time and money while staying healthy.
Store Grab-n-Go Snacks
As part of your clean eating, you need to skip junk foods and unhealthy snacks. So stockpile your pantry with healthy snacks and make a grab-and-go snack corner.
Cut some fruit up and put it in plastic containers. Also, pre-assemble some nuts, dark chocolate, unsweetened dried fruit and pack them in small baggies. Bring them to work or school and you’ll be able to stay away from unhealthy cravings.
Make Overnight Oats
Transform yourself into a morning person with delicious and hearty overnight oats. You can prepare them the night before or three days in advance, store in your fridge, and have an instant healthy breakfast in the morning.
Make it a habit to do your groceries after you’ve planned out your meals. This will ensure that you have all the ingredients you need for the week.
Also, always try to stick to your grocery list and focus on healthy supplies. Not only will you save time and money doing this, but you’ll also be able to make sure you eat clean.
Freezer Smoothie Packs
Just because you’re eating clean doesn’t mean you need to skip dessert. Try making some smoothies and treat yourself to a healthy and guilt-free dessert.
To easily make one, you just have to combine ingredients like chopped fruits, leafy greens, yogurt, honey, etc. in a ziplock bag, freeze overnight, and put into your blender in the morning. They’ll satisfy your sweet tooth and improve your health.
