6 a.m., the alarm goes off.
You’re up and at ‘em (or maybe you hit the sleep button a few times haha). Brush your teeth, wash your face, get dressed, and out the door. Off to the gym for a morning Map 10 session, on the rower or Air Dyne before hitting the office.
8:30 a.m.- Swig a protein shake
9 a.m.– Office time
10:30 a.m.-Hunger strikes! Grab whatever you can from the breakroom (cooooookies)
1 p.m. Hunger strikes AGAIN…lunchtime. Walk across the street to Panera or Chipotle for some grub to grab and go back to your desk
1:30-5 p.m. More work, with a little snack attack in there—a protein bar or some protein powder with your evening workout in mind.
5:30-7:30 p.m. Gym session #2-strength and conditioning
8 p.m.- Starving for dinner! With no food at home though, you do what you most often do: Swing by Whole Foods to pick up some prepared foods from the Chef’s Case—one of your ‘usuals’, salmon or chicken breast, and a veggie or two of some sort. You inhale it at home, and then begin to wind down for the night
9 p.m.–11 p.m. TV, reading, e-mails, bed
Sound familiar? An on the go, busy lifestyle?
Between your love for training, making a living, and eating in between, there’s often so much to do and so little time.
When it comes to being busy in fact, one of the most common things to “go” is your nutrition, or rather, your meal prep.
Try as you might to eat clean and healthy ‘on the go’, eating out or being on the road is straight-up just not the same as home-cooked meals, prepared with your own two hands and ingredients you know (and trust).
Day by day, you make it by with snacks here and there that you happen to ‘find’ in your desk, or in your bag, while going from meal to meal by the seat of your pants—finding whatever is in sight when hunger strikes, and attempting to make the best choices possible in the process.
However…there is a better way!
Here are 7 Easy Steps for Clean Eating On the Go to support your busy lifestyle.
By taking these simple steps to fuel the machine, you will have plenty of good sustenance to allow you to do the really important things you want to do in your life.
Easy said…easy done.
