Here are 6 healthy tips and tricks to more easily 
"Grab N' Go" for your busy life!

1. Keep fruit on hand

Keep apples, bananas, and plums on hand for a quick grab n’ go snack.

Fresh or dried fruit with no sugar added are quick, low-calorie foods.

2. Prewash and cut fresh fruits and vegetables

Do this when you get home from the grocery store so your fresh produce is ready to be quickly thrown into a bag for a quick snack or to be added to a meal.

3. Buy canned and frozen fruits and vegetables for added convenience and variety

Canned vegetables or fruit may be quickly prepared and served.

Choose canned fruit in water rather than syrup and canned vegetables with no salt added.

Frozen vegetables are also a fast side dish for any meal and can be added to the main course (e.g. add frozen vegetables to spaghetti sauce or to stir fry).

Frozen vegetables come pre-seasoned and unseasoned. For unseasoned vegetables, try adding some lemon pepper (no salt added) or roasted garlic pepper for extra flavor. Just be sure to check the salt content of whatever seasoning you choose. Remember, the lower the amount of sodium the better!

4. Pack your lunch the night before

This will help ensure there is time to grab a wholesome meal made of multiple food groups.

Consider packing veggies with ranch or hummus, a wrap or salad, and a piece of fruit!

A handful of nuts may also be a good idea and help you push past mid-afternoon hunger pangs.

5. Plan out your meals and snacks for the week

Planning once each week rather than everyday will help you avoid meal indecision, or having to decide what to eat at the end of a long day, and save you time in the long run!

6. Prepare extra meals to freeze

When preparing a meal, make extras to store in your freezer.

When in a rush these can be quick go-to meals that only require reheating.
