The time-conscious diet
The older we get, the busier our schedule becomes! If it’s not a family commitment, job deadline or our hectic social lives it’s a new obstacle to juggle into our on-going list of ‘must-dos’. However, that does not mean you have to ditch the diet! The biggest misconception associated with dieting is that more time and effort goes into a healthier lifestyle. This could be why some of us fall of the wagon so easily.
People often disregard the real origin of ‘fast food’ such as fruit, seeds, nuts and vegetables. Remember, a handful of fresh fruit is just as accessible and easy to eat as a bag of crisps. Instead of completely skipping breakfast why not grab some fruit for on-the-go. Not only will these little changes leave you feeling great, but also looking great too! Below are selections of healthy meal plans that are just as quick to prepare as their unhealthier alternatives.
Breakfast -A bowl of porridge topped with Banana (or a topping of your choice) 10 -15 minutes.
Waking up an extra 10-15 minutes early to eat a healthy, hearty breakfast really will benefit your health and weight loss results. Porridge only takes a few minutes to make, and can be paired with dozens of delicious toppings. If you are still struck for time, or if mornings really aren’t your thing, then pick up a banana to eat on the go.
Remember: breakfast is the most important meal of the day and is important towards positive health and weight loss.
Snacks – nuts- seeds or fruit.
The original ‘fast food’…put down your crisp packet, step away from the vending machine and help yourself to a handful of mixed nuts, fruit or vegetables. Trust me, your body will thank you for it.
Lunch – A pre-prepared salad. -10-15 minutes
The time it takes to rustle up a salad is often misconstrued, it can take 10-15 minutes to throw together a healthy salad, and it doesn’t involve a lot (if not any) cooking or fiddling around. Prep you lunch the night before if you’re not a morning person, or ultimately buy a salad from your nearest shop on your lunch break. Note: Don’t be afraid to spruce up your salad leaves! Add some nuts, raisins, fruit and fish to give your body that extra zap of energy until dinner.
Dinner – Omelet and fresh salad.
You should always take your time and tuck in to a hearty healthy dinner. It is a staple meal and stops you from the ultimate weight loss crime – late night snacking. However, if you have evening plans and need a quick recipe fix then I suggest a good old-fashioned omelet. Like salads, omelets are great for sprucing up with extra toppings and ingredients, some of which need no time at all. Add some basil leaves, tomatoes, spinach and grated cheese to your next omelets and pair with fresh crisp salad leave.
