How can planning ahead help

How can planning ahead help?

“I’m trying hard to eat healthy, but my work schedule is so hectic that I often don’t have time for lunch. I’ll plan to run out for lunch, but then get tied up in a meeting and can’t get away. Then I’m so hungry that I’ll eat anything in sight. This is when I usually head to the vending machine and grab a candy bar and bag of chips. I know this is not a good choice, but what can I do?”

  • Assemble or pre-cook portions of the meal if possible

  • Place frozen meals in the refrigerator to thaw the morning or day before

  • Portion out individual snack size servings of crackers or other snacks
