When you are always on the go, it is quite hard to make healthy food choices. Yes, there are tons of fast-food restaurants out there but they are not really the best since the meals and snacks that they offer may be loaded with salt and other preservatives. It is still highly recommended that you prepare your own food.
The truth is, there are many easy-to-make on-the-go food options that you can make without compromising the nutritional values. Here they are:
BLAT Breakfast Sandwich
Why settle for a plain egg sandwich if you can actually have one with bacon, lettuce, avocado, and tomatoes? You can prepare 4 to 5 servings of the BLAT breakfast sandwich in only 20 minutes or less.
So how do you make this sandwich on the go? Simply put the bacon in the microwave, following the instructions on the packaging. You can also cook the eggs in the microwave using a greased mug.
Remove the flesh of the avocado, slice, and set aside. Slice the tomatoes too while toasting the English muffins. Once done, spread with mayonnaise and add the bacon, avocado, tomato, arugula, and eggs.
Turkey Lettuce Wraps
If you are trying to avoid carbs, then a turkey lettuce wrap would be an excellent option for a fast pacer like you. All you need to do is to saute some onions and then add the turkey and carrots. Add the lime juice, soy sauce, and hoisin. Fill each lettuce leaf with the turkey filling and top it with peanuts. You’ll surely love this wrap!
Sausage Tortellini Salad
This one right here is a 15-minute dish that will certainly fill you up as you go through your hectic schedule. After cooking the pasta according to the package instructions, toss it with a mixture of olives, sun-dried tomatoes, pepperoni slices, and the dressing. As simple as that!
Fruits and Nuts Energy Bars
Do you want something light but will keep you energized throughout the day? Fruits and nuts energy bars will do just that. Using a food processor, grind the figs, walnuts, and cranberries. Add some sunflower seeds, poppy seeds, and almond butter. Knead the mixture and cut them into bars. Refrigerate until set.
Oatmeal Muffins With Blueberries
Oatmeal muffins with blueberries are another perfect snack for people on the go, as you can make it in about 40 minutes.
After combining the flour mixture and honey mixture, add some carrots, berries, and oatmeal. Divide the combination and put the portions into muffin cups. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
Lunchbox roll-ups are so easy to prepare that even your kids can make them. Simply warm the wraps in the microwave and then add hummus, a slice of cheese, carrots, sprouts, and turkey slices. Roll tightly and slice.
Mason Jar Miso Noodle Soup
On a cold day, you can have a mason jar miso noodle soup…
As you cook the linguine pasta, grate the carrots. In a mason jar, add the miso and broth base followed by the pasta, carrots, chicken, and spinach. Simply add boiling water when you are ready to eat.
