Some days are so rushed it’s impossible even to find time to shower. Why would you wake up an extra 30 minutes early to sit down and eat breakfast? And with all the responsibilities you’re juggling, how do you find time for lunch and dinner?
When you’re busy, it’s easy to eat your meals on the go, grabbing a slice of pizza, some granola bars or whatever’s handy. It’s true that skipping meals can leave you feeling lethargic, confused and grumpy, but eating heavily processed and fast foods can drain your strength, energy and mental functioning.
To avoid skipping meals or filling up on prepackaged foods, take an extra five or ten minutes to pack a nutritious meal or snacks to take with you. That way you’ll have the energy to get through your day without binge-eating chips and ice cream at midnight.
