Finding the time to eat healthily when you’re super busy can be challenging. We totally get that and here at Jar healthy vending machines in London, it’s not something that we take lightly. Your well being is our number one priority. Unfortunately, we can’t be with your 24/7 or install one of our vending machines in your home! What we can do though is help set you on the right track with our top tricks and tips on how to eat the healthy way.
So we’ve come up with some simple ideas on how to keep your diet clean when you’re short on time.
1. Don’t keep junk food in the house.
This is a no-brainer. If you don’t buy it, you won’t eat it! There’s no telling what you might grab from the fridge when the mood takes you if it’s loaded with sugary treats. It’s so much easier to make healthy food decisions if your cupboards are packed with delicious and nutritious options rather than full of crisps, biscuits and cakes. Even if you have will power and are able to practise portion control, the easiest way to eat healthily is to buy healthy. Remove the temptation and review your weekly grocery list.
2. Plan ahead and prepare some healthy snacks you can grab during the week..
Don’t fall into the misconception of thinking that meal planning is a chore and will just end up taking up even more of your valuable time. Prepping healthy snacks need only take about five minutes and then you’re good to go with healthy options to graze on throughout the day for you and your family.
3. Save yourself time by buying pre-chopped produce
This might sound like a lazy tip and we’re sure all of us would love to grab home-grown produce from our garden, chop and cook it fresh and serve it at our dining table. Let’s get real, though. This isn’t an episode of the good life! This is what we call real life! With a simple packet of butternut squash, you can quickly blitz up a healthy and nutritious soup in next to no time. Just season and serve.
4. Never skip your breakfast
It’s called break fast for a reason! It’s your chance to fire up the metabolism and rev up your body’s engine after a night of fasting. Whip up a green smoothie, a breakfast burrito or some overnight oats with blueberries. These are all fast and fresh options that will set you up for the day ahead. The Jar - Healthy Vending machines in London are packed with grab and go breakfast options ideal for the busy time-strapped commuter. From Press super smoothies to Plenish shakes you can check out the full range.
5. Embrace the freezer; it’s your friend
We’re not talking frozen TV dinners here. Plan ahead and batch cook your family favourite meals and freeze them in convenient portion sizes for the week ahead. Also grab frozen bags of quinoa, brown rice, broccoli, peppers, blueberries and raspberries so that you always have access to nutritious ingredients.
