  • HEALTHY EATING MADE EASY FOR WORKING WOMEN
  • You get up late, grab some cereal, dash to work and by 11 o’clock realize you’re starving! Sound familiar? If so, you need to rediscover the importance of the pack up, and how to pack a lunch which will save you from the downfall of quick fix chocolate, crisps, high calorie prepacked sandwiches and fast food outlets…
  • Don’t Let Time Be Your Enemy • If you don’t think there’s time in your morning routine make it the night before. When time isn’t a concern you will find it can be enjoyable planning lots of healthy treats to enjoy the following day.
  • Plan Your Snacks • Snacks are the perfect way to control your blood sugar levels and hence your hunger. Plan a few healthy snacks for the times when you know you get hungry. Low fat yogurts, carrot batons with cottage cheese or a slice of whole meal bread with honey (or reduced sugar jam) are better alternatives.
  • Don’t Fear Fruit • If you’re not used to eating fruit, don’t punish yourself by chucking in the "dieter’s apple". Unless you’re an apple lover, you won’t eat it! Try to make it fun - slice it up, coat it in lemon juice (to stop it going brown) and toss in a few red grapes. Now you’ve got some interesting finger food for that 11 o’clock low! Make it bite size and mess free and you’re more likely to indulge - pineapple or melon cubes, orange and kiwi slices, or a handful of berries are all ideal.
  • • Satisfying Sandwiches Make your sandwiches interesting - like the ones which tempt you from the supermarket shelf! Wraps, pittas all make a welcome change from the sliced white bread with ham routine. Go easy on the meat or cheese and fill it up with salad. Try leaving out the butter or mayo and using a healthy option salad dressing (mustard, lime juice) add taste, not fat.
  • • Wraps: Stuffing's can be prepared and stuffed in tortillas or plain crepes etc. for a delicious lunch. • Ready made solutions: When shopping, go for shredded cabbage, sliced vegetables, canned, diced tomatoes and some frozen vegetables to save you a lot of time when making salads and vegetable dishes.
  • • Pasta Lover's Lunch Salad. Pack a cold pasta salad .Make your salad with lean meat or low-fat cheese (so it has some protein), lots of vegetables to boost fiber and use a whole-grain blend pasta. Then just drizzle some light vinaigrette over the top and toss.
  • • For protein, wrap some seasoned chicken or turkey in a leaf or two • • • • • • of red lettuce. Add a piece of fruit. Fill celery sticks with cream or curd cheese or nut butter, and wrap in cling film to transport. Bring some cut up raw vegetables such as carrots, cauliflower, peppers and celery, with a container of cottage cheese as a dip. Season a pot of plain yoghurt with chopped nuts, and enjoy with a piece of crunchy fruit. Bake a sweet potato and sprinkle with cinnamon or nutmeg for a sweet but healthy snack. Chop an apple into a mashed can of tuna, and eat it with celery sticks, carrots, pepper and cauliflower florets. Other nutritious foods include sardines, cottage cheese, nuts, seeds and virtually all fruits and vegetables.
  • While Eating Out • • • • Choose smaller sized portions. While eating Pizzas choose pizzas with thin crusts and go easy on the cheese and extra meat toppings. Opting for low fat alternatives to traditional fast food such as a salad, baked potato and grilled chicken salad is another good step towards building good healthy food habits. Macoroni and cheese, 1 cup has 380 calories. Opt for a whole wheat pasta (1 cup) tossed with olive oil (1 tsp) and garlic (1 clove), 214 calories. This option gives you more fiber and makes a heart healthy pick.
