Grab and Go Foods Make Eating Five Meals Daily Convenient
Eating five meals a day can be very tricky, especially when it comes to preparing those meals and finding the time to eat them. That is where including a few healthy ready-made meals or snacks comes in handy.
While it is a good rule of thumb to avoid processed foods, there are some processed foods that are healthy for you. Foods like yogurt and protein bars are not only handy but affordable too. What's more, it only takes a few minutes to gobble one of those items. You can grab one and eat it while commuting or take them to work and have one while on a break. I like to go to see movies, and I almost always go to the theater with a protein bar in my pocket. That way I can get in one of my five meals while watching the latest action film. Protein bars go equally as well with indie films too!
I generally look for foods that are low in calories but high in protein. You want to consider other information on the nutrition label. For instance, you probably want to avoid foods that are high in sodium, especially if your blood pressure tends be on the high side. Having a little bit of fat or carbs should be fine as long as it's just that: a little bit.
You can find many of these foods in your local supermarket or in health food stores like GNC or The Vitamin Shoppe. You can also find many of these items online at a very affordable price. For your convenience, I am pleased to announce a new section to FiveMealsDaily.com called Grab & Go Meals. Here, you can browse many healthy ready-made foods, view their nutritional information, and purchase them from Amazon.com. Your purchases from Amazon via FiveMealsDaily.com helps to support this website and won't cost you another dime that it would had your purchased them directly on Amazon.com. You can view the new Grab & Go Meals section by selection that option under "Meals" in the main menu, or by clicking here.
