While you’re improving your health and losing weight through your Xyngular system, at some point you’ll be faced with the question of what to eat while on-the-go.
It may seem easier to pick up a quick, packaged snack while you’re out and about, but here are a few tips that will save you time, money, and a few extra calories during your next outing.
If you know you’ve got a trip or a long day out of the house, plan for it. Your guidebook comes with many great snack options that you can take along with you.
A couple of hard-boiled eggs or a Lean Shake make a quick, go-to option when you can’t make it home for a snack.
Meal-plan approved veggies can also make a great on-the-go snack to take along with you.
If you’re not going to be home during a meal, make that meal ahead of time and stick it in an easy-to-grab container to take along with you.
Plan on meals that you won’t have to reheat. Chicken and fish are generally safe to eat as long as they are kept cold until they are ready to eat.
Leftovers can be a great option to take along with you while you’re out.
You can plan ahead for outings with leftovers as well, by making extra of previous meals to use for later.
Combining leftovers with different side dishes can keep you from getting bored with eating the same thing two days in a row.
Stay Away From Packaged Foods
There may come a time where you forget to pack something healthy and meal-plan friendly.
If this happens to you, do your best to stay away from packaged snacks and food.
Packaged foods may seem simple, but they’re usually not your best option.
Artificial ingredients, loads of sugar, and unnecessary calories are usually found in these types of foods.
Instead, stop by your local grocery store and pick up some fresh veggies and nut butter or cottage cheese for dipping.
If you focus on your nutrient-dense foods instead of quick fixes, you’ll save yourself from hidden carbs, sugars, and calories.
Take a Water Bottle
Hydration is always important when it comes to eating and living healthily.
Drinking enough water can keep you from feeling hungry, which will save you from eating unhealthy snacks and foods.
Having a water bottle with you will also help you stay away from those sodas and juices you might be tempted to drink.
Tips for Restaurants
Do your research before you head out to any restaurants. Look for restaurants that fit into your meal plan.
Dive into the menus, and have your choice made before you even make it to the restaurant.
Many restaurants offer free bread that you should steer clear from. Bread isn’t usually your best choice, so it’s best to ask your server to keep it off the table.
Feel free to ask your waiter any questions as well. Questions like, whether you can get your food grilled instead of fried, or what different substitutions they have can help you make better, healthier food choice.
Practice Makes Perfect
It will take some getting used to, but the more you practice these tips, the easier it will be for you to eat while on the go.
It is possible to eat healthy while you’re out and about. It may require a little more mindfulness about your food choices, but it can make all the difference in with your weight-loss goals.
