  • Making healthy choices when you have a hectic schedule can be a challenge. Plan ahead to make sure your fridge, pantry and freezer are well-stocked with nutrient-dense, ready-to-go options. Canned beans, canned fish packed in water, whole grain pasta and breads, low fat yogurt and cheese, nuts, baby carrots, sugar snap peas and fresh fruit are perfect examples!
  • Every week, pick a protein source, a legume and a whole grain to feature in several meals. For example, on Sunday evening, roast a chicken and cook big batches of lentils and quinoa to get you through the week.
  • Think about ways you can combine the foods you made in large batches in different ways. How about having the chicken in wraps, with the quinoa in a salad, or with the lentils in a soup? How about having the quinoa for breakfast as a hot cereal and rolling into energy balls for a quick snack? The possibilities are endless!
  • Chop up vegetables and fruit and place into containers or baggies so you can quickly incorporate into meals or grab for a quick snack.
