With the invention of fast food, it has become more apparent to most of us that are health conscious that we are fighting an uphill battle. It is starting to become harder to say no to the easier, faster and unhealthier option and almost impossible to say yes to the foods that can help further our health and fitness goals.
For one fast food is so much cheaper than healthier food. If the cost alone hasn’t swayed your mind than just the convenience alone of fast food in comparison to the inconvenience of finding healthy food is starting to push the scales in most people’s minds to eat fast food. Luckily you are here reading this, as below we are going to go over the 5 ways you can fortify your healthy eating habits when you are out and about.
#1 Protein Bars
Protein bars provide a range of nutritious and healthy protein that is mixed in with an appropriate amount of carbohydrates as well as a low amount of fat. They are a considerably healthier snack than your average fast food option, as for one, Protein bars contain a lot more protein then fast food does while also containing less fat and carbohydrates.
#2 Protein Shakes
Protein powder has revolutionized the convenience and ease of protein shakes. All you need are three things to make a protein shake. A protein shaker bottle, protein powder and water or milk. It is one of the most convenient, tasteful and cost effective ways to increase your daily protein intake. Protein shakes only take under 30 seconds to prepare and make. Which make it a great option to eating healthy while out and about, and on the go.
#3 Protein Cookies
While this one might sound unhealthy and bad toward your fitness and health goals, protein cookies are actually really healthy and make a great substitute for carbohydrate and fat filled pastries. They are specifically made for health conscious people and contain a good amount of protein with a medium amount of carbohydrates and a low amount of fat.
#4 Stick To Protein Orientated Food When Out
Instead of protein supplements and snacks, the easiest way to pick the healthier option is to buy food that is high in protein and lower in both carbohydrates and fats. An example would be eating a peaking duck instead of eating a satay chicken at the Chinese store. Or alternatively buying a high protein smoothie at Boost instead of purchasing a thick shake a McDonalds.
#5 Always Plan Ahead
If you know you are going to be out, plan ahead by making a snack to take along with you. It is the simplest way to make sure you are going to be eating healthy while out and about. It will also be the most cost effective solution and instead of buying expensive health food options when you are out, you can save money with a little preparation.
