It seems to me regardless of what you do for a living, we all need to find foods that are convenient and sometimes fast.  None of us have time for preparing and making everything from scratch all the time… right?


I think that despite the convenience of running through the Mc Donalds drive thru, it is possible to eat wonderful nutrient rich foods on-the-go.

It does, however, require planning.  That could be the biggest challenge.

Here are a few things that I have learned about that can be nutritious, convenient and fast

Green Smoothies:

This was a big point at my class last weekend and I have found them to be tasty and fast…

I think the way to make them really fast and convenient would be to pre-cut your veggies and fruits and have them available to mix and match daily.

I have been throwing a combo of kale, chard, cabbage, carrot, beet (raw), raspberries, mango, apple and walnuts.

throw in a couple of the above, some almond milk, green tea powder, protein powder, blend and run…

Frozen Casseroles:

As per my previous post, cooking on the weekends and freezing a bunch of good stuff makes weeknight dinners a breeze…

Overnight Oatmeal:

This was a Pinterest find!  (thank you Jodi!).  (recipe here)

This has been AWESOME!  You throw a couple of things in the crock pot in the evening and wake up to a delicious, nutritious breakfast!

Green Superfood Bars:

Although these are technically processed, if you need to grab something and go, this is a great alternative to a granola bar or candy bar.

I really like the Raw Revolution Bars and Brayden loves the Green Superfood Bars (even though when he first looked at the bar he said it looked like grass… I tell him to just eat it and not look at it!).

Those are a few little tools in my toolbox…

What allows you to eat healthy when time and convenience are a factor?
