Eating Well When You're Squeezed For Time


As you probably know from experience, it can be very difficult to eat well from the comfort of your home when you’ve got a busy schedule. Without relying on any pre-packaged and processed foods, being able to eat well can be a huge challenge. However, there are still many ways you can make it easier, even in all the chaos of modern life…


Focus on What You Love to Eat the Most


It’s great to get creative with your cooking when you have the time. However, when you can’t be flexible, sourcing all the ingredients you need can make it much harder to eat well at home with everything else in your schedule. Instead of going for a wide-reaching palette and trying to eat something new at any given opportunity, focus more on the go-to foods that you love to eat the most, or those that tend to be easiest for you to work with. For example, if making a big bowl of salad one day of the week keeps you fed for several days, keep doing this, and try experimenting with separate ingredients and spices every now and then.

Find Some Quick and Easy Favourites


Ingredients like eggs and avocados are easy peasy to whip up without having to sweat in the kitchen. If you’re really squeezed for time, it only takes a few minutes to boil an egg, mash it up with some dill or another seasoning, and have it on toast or just by itself. Obviously, you’re going to want something more satisfying here and there, but this doesn’t mean you have to cut yourself off from the big, lavish dinners that you love so much. Spend a little time searching for gourmet meals re-heating instructions, and you’ll be amazed at the quick and easy possibilities. While you’re at it, scour blogs and foodie sites for meals that are easy to cook and require little ingredients and time to pull off. Roasting your favourite cut of meat and finishing it with some herbs, spices and vegetables is not only quick and easy, but feels like a real treat when you sit down to eat it.

Prep and Cook Throughout the Week

Rather than cramming everything into the fridge and freezer as soon as you get it home from the grocery store, spend a little while cleaning different food items, preparing them, and cooking the things that you can reheat over the days ahead. If you make a point of doing this every few days, you’ll be able to handle a few meals for the near future while you’re cooking another. Aside from saving you a lot of time, this will fill your fridge with tasty and nutritious snacks that you can go for whenever you get the craving!

If you really want to work on your diet, but you felt that you never had the time to eat well in your home, try taking these habits on board. You’ll be amazed at how much more flexible you can be!
