Stacy shared her top healthy hacks to stay on top of your game this fall!
Do You Have A Fit and Fabulous Game Plan? You Know You Need One!
Create A Meal-Packing Station At Home and In The Office: Keep grab-and-go meal options within reach and in easy to find places in your home or office. Stock an area of your fridge with pre-cut and washed fruits and veggies. You can pack individually portioned servings of hummus, guacamole, greek yogurt and other spreads to pair with interesting veggies such as jicama, broccoli and cooked sweet potato rounds in place of crackers or bread.
Ditch the Fruit Juice Eat Whole, Real Fruit: Try to kick the juice habit this fall season. Opt for fresh fruit, preferably with the skin or peel on (when applicable) to get your sugar fix, rather than fruit juices or dried fruit with added sugars. Eating a whole piece of fruit instead of drinking juice will provide beneficial nutrition, dietary fiber, satiety and prevent spikes in your blood sugar.
Take a close look at your favorite juice from your local juice bar. Just because your green juice contains kale and spinach does not mean it’s a healthful choice. Let’s look at the Naked Boosted Green Machine, for example: One bottle contains 270 calories and 53 grams of sugar. When heading to the juice bar, use a 3:1 vegetable to fruit ratio to create your own juice combo, rather than choosing a preselected juice from the menu. Select lower-sugar fruits, such as apples, for sweetness and add citrus, such as lemon, grapefruit and limes.
Track Your Diet: Keep A Food Journal: Tracking your diet, even for just 24 hours, helps to determine your caloric intake, variety and balance of foods and nutrients, as well as create healthy habits and eating patterns. This also assists in your nutrient timing, as you may be more likely to remember to eat more often when tracking. There are many technology based apps available on your phone to keep a food journal such as My Fitness Pal, or even simply in your Notes.
