On-The-Go Diet Plan for a Busy Day

The work culture and constant routine made many of us compromise our health. We spend our busy days with tight schedules without consciously thinking about the repercussions of chewing extremely fatty, salty, unhealthy foods. Also, the constant glorification of overwork, long hours, and always being productive sometimes alienates us from ourselves. Most of the time, we forget the basics of self-care.

In the midst of so many emails, phone calls, conferences or meetings, we find it much easier to order food or just skip meals. We don’t even understand that while we work so hard to earn some money, true wealth is slipping through our fingers. In the midst of all this, we forget that we have to take care of ourselves as we take care of those we love and focus on what is essential, which is our health.

the right approach

Changing the focus on our health requires a holistic approach. Of course, we all know that diet and exercise play an essential role in staying healthy. But sometimes we fail because we can’t stick to a diet plan. Also, sometimes it is not very easy to prepare healthy meals due to lack of time. Here is an easy-to-prepare, extremely healthy diet plan packed with all the necessary micro and macronutrients.

Takeout Meal Plan: Healthy meals made in an instant!

Here is a list of recommended healthy choices for contemporary women and men who are always on the go:

Breakfast

‘Eat breakfast like a king’ is something we’ve heard since we were little, but how many of us implement it? Having a good, healthy breakfast can set the pace for the rest of the day. There are many good options for a healthy breakfast. One of them includes overnight fruity oatmeal which contains almost 295 Cal, and would help you start your day right! It’s super easy to prepare and packed with immeasurable nutrients.

One can get creative with overnight oatmeal. Add yogurt or coconut milk or any nut milk to good quality oatmeal. Add seasonal fruits, whole nuts, and a few drops of organic dark chocolate if you’re a chocolate lover. Keep it overnight in the fridge and you’ll have your delicious breakfast ready.

Lunch

lunch - vegetable khichdi

Many people skip lunch just because they are busy. However, long breaks between meals often result in reduced energy levels, less productivity, or even shutting down from activities that aren’t necessary as a way to save energy. As a result, your metabolism and digestion slow down, and the next time you eat, your body processes food more slowly.

All this means that skipping meals can easily lead to weight gain. A perfect option for an energetic lunch is the vegetable brown rice khichadi with curd which contains about 364 Cal. It is a complete food with the right amount of carbohydrates, proteins and vitamins. It helps stave off the afternoon energy slump, giving you that mid-day energy boost. We recommend this as the highly flavorful and healthy alternative to that oily burger you’ve been munching on!

Snack
