1. Make it the Night Before
If you’re like many who have limited time in the morning and you know you’ll be rushing out the door-make it the night before. Throw a salad together with a form of protein, pack some nuts and or fruit and you’ve got a quick, healthy meal.
2. Take Leftovers
Don’t want to make anything at all? Just cook enough dinner so you have leftovers for lunch the next day. Put them in a Tupperware container after you’ve eaten at night and you’re ready to go.
3. Use a Blender
If your stuck in the office having a blender around comes in handy. In a pinch you can whip up a great smoothie simply by using whey protein, fruit and water or juice. It’s easy, quick and nutritious for when you’re short on time.
4. Keep Canned Tuna and Salmon at Work
If you’ve got limited choices and you know there is nothing else good around, go to protein from tuna or salmon. Make sure the salmon is wild, keep some mayo or mustard at work and have with crackers and or fruit. Tuna and salmon are 100% protein, will support balanced blood sugar levels and are easy to make.
5. Keep Temptations Away
So many office spaces these days are filled with bagels, chocolates, pretzels or other sugar-laden temptations that someone brought to work to share. The simple solution is to move these treats away from you so you can’t smell them or see them. The saying “out of sight, out of mind” is a cliché for a very good reason: It’s true! Your number one goal is to minimize the number of temptations that surround you, as that’s the easiest way to guarantee that you won’t get off track.
