Eating more plants doesn’t just mean eating more salads. Quinoa, seeds, almonds, fruit, whole grains, greens, beans, etc., are all plants. Adding chickpeas to your salad in the middle of the day can pack in that perfect blend of protein and carbohydrates to sustain you.
Instead of heading into the kitchen at the end of the day to munch on unhealthy snacks for the rest of the evening, why not focus your energy on creating a nourishing meal that will make you feel great?
Healthier Food Environment
So how do people who are constantly on the move or can’t seem to fit cooking into their schedules create a healthy food environment? The trick is to make it accessible. Processed foods high in sugar, salt, and oil, are convenient, but they’ll leave you feeling groggy or hungry an hour later.
Instead, try to make the same simple breakfast every day. Perhaps you want to include nice whole grains, such as oats or quinoa, and some berries. You can make this the night before or even on Sunday for the entire week. You can opt for a salad for lunch or pre-cook some potatoes to take with you. Tweaks like this help create good healthy habits that fuel you on the path to fulfilling your mission.
Shifting Your Mindset
Let’s not forget that Mother Nature makes fruit in perfect little packages to travel with us. Sure, thinking about eating an apple is not nearly as exciting as thinking about eating a bag of potato chips, but it’s all about shifting your mindset.
Think of the food you eat as the fuel for your body. This shift in thinking will enable you to eat the foods that will give you the energy to run your business and create the kind of impact in the world that you want. Also, bring your refillable water bottle with you everywhere and stay hydrated at all times.
