So this is a photo of some pineapple chunks and some raw nuts. In my car. On the passenger seat. (I know.)
I always say that being organized is key to eating well. Some days......not so organized!
However, a grab and go meal like this one will ALWAYS beat the drive thru options. Agreed? Of course :)
Continue to look at your food beyond the "fill me up" factor. Look at it for what it gives your body. How it nourishes you. This little grouping in my car gave me: calcium, B vitamins, fibre, healthy fats, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Bromelain (an excellent anti-inflammatory - thank you pineapple), a host of nutrients and great flavour! AND.....PEACE OF MIND. I felt proud of what I was eating. I felt happy and good about myself for nourishing ME. Not scarfing down a burger and fries or a gigantic muffin! That shit makes you feel like shit - physically and mentally. Like you let yourself down. Why would you want to feel that way?
Next time you are heading out the door in a rush - have a quick look in the fridge and grab some fruit and nuts (keep your nuts and seeds in the fridge, they have oils that go rancid) before you go! That's kind of being organized, right?!!
