We all get busy sometimes.
But, the problem is that most of us get busy most of the time so healthy eating flies out the window.
If you're a busy girl, here are 5 simple rules to follow to keep your diet balanced.
1. Break that fast (Eat your Breakfast)
It's very important to eat your breakfast as it is essential to restore your blood sugar levels after the overnight fast that happens as we sleep.
Base your breakfast on slow-digesting carbs and protein for sustained energy throughout the morning.
2. Eat your proteins
When you eat a high-carb lunch, it can leave you feeling tired in the afternoon, protein-rich foods promote mental alertness.
Our pick: go for a salad with lean meats or eggs.
3. Bulk it up!
Cook large batches of meals such as soups, stews, tomato sauces and low-fat curries or chili con carne, and then freeze them (hint)
This is a great way to ensure that you always have healthy meals ready to use. Just defrost a portion in the fridge the previous night.
4. Coffe is good. Too much coffee is bad
Having a morning coffee can give you a much-needed temporary boost, but too much can lead to feelings of irritability and sleepless nights.
5. Eat your greens
Try to consume a rainbow spectrum of fruit and vegetables across the day to ensure that you get lots of essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
