If you don’t know this already, I am an incredibly busy person. I organize and work at 5 different part-time jobs and go to graduate classes at a university over an hour away from where I live. When people tell me that they cannot be healthy because they work 40 hours a week at one location, I have to admit, I struggle feeling sorry for them.
While it’s really difficult to stay healthy in the face of our hectic pace of life, I strongly believe that it is possible! All it takes is a LOT of planning.
I was in between 3 different part-time jobs on this particular day and I knew that this day was going to be jam-packed and nomad-like (due to my constant re-locating). So I grabbed food that could be eaten cold on-the-go that would pack a protein punch and keep me going.
Here is what I ate:
-Cold chickpea “salad” with no salt added, canned chickpeas, drained and dried; fresh cucumber cut up into small pieces; all drizzled with seasoning salt.
-fresh berries cut up, drizzled with honey (my favorite!)
-Hot coffee from my co-worker
-a 32-oz Nalgene bottle of water
Boom! I ate in 15 minutes’ time and kept going with my day.
What do you make to eat on-the-go that’s gluten-free and healthy?
