Carbohydrates are our body’s main source of energy and should make up around 50 percent of our total daily calories. Mikey’s is a better for you baked food brand that makes English muffins, bread, tortillas and more all with real pronounceable ingredients and happen to be non-gmo, paleo and free of gluten, dairy and soy. I shared their new FROZEN pizza pockets, which come in 5 delicious flavors and are really re-defining convenience products because they have no artificial flavors or preservatives.
Protein is important for building and repairing muscles and portable nut butter packets are a convenient source.I love Naturally More because they also have added flaxseeds, which have omega-3 fats and probiotics, which are beneficial bacteria that may support digestion and immunity. You can find them on Amazon. Pair these with a carbohydrate source and you have a great pre workout snack.
Veggies are also important for keeping our body healthy – they are low in calories and high in fiber, vitamins and minerals. Mann’s makes incorporating them into every meal of the day a breeze. I shared their veggie slaw blends which have been shredded, washed and packed into one convenient bag – so you seriously save time in the kitchen. I’ve incorporated them into my slaws-in-a-jar which each contain a protein, carb and veggie slaw so you are building a complete meal with staying power.
Preparation is the key to healthy eating success:
The key to sticking to a healthy eating plan is having prepared veggie, protein and carbohydrate options readily available. I recommend Wellslock, which are commercial, restaurant grade food storage containers with a patented, one-lock design. The airtight seal prevents moisture retention and slows down food spoilage. It’s also BPA-free comes in sizes 10-100 liters and you can use the promo code abcnews15 for 15% off at wellslock.com.
