Many people find it challenging to eat healthy with such busy lifestyles. However, being busy does not necessarily mean we have to forgo healthy eating habits; it just requires someorganization.

  1. Be prepared.  Make a date with yourself to shop for fresh produce. Wash and/or pre -cut your veggies as soon as you get home. Having a container full of diced carrots, celery, cucumbers and peppers front and center in the fridge will make it much easier to fix a wrap, salad or healthy snack in a snap!
  2. Make it visible. Place fruit (apples, bananas, oranges, pineapples, pears, kiwis) in a large bowl on the counter in full view. Often we are tempted to reach for the very first thing that we see!
  3. Discover new dips and salad dressing to enjoy. Even raw broccoli tastes amazing when slathered in a favorite sauce! Prep a few enticing dips and dressings at the beginning of the week to ensure that you won’t be tempted to dive into the cookie jar once 4 pm rolls around. Dips such as hummus are high in protein and healthy fats that can form the basis of a nutritious meal. Have dips on hand for easy access.  For quick, healthy and delicious ideas, read my books, The Simply Raw Kitchen and The SimplyRaw Living Foods Detox Manual.
  4. Fool Proof Snacks. Apples dipped in almond butter, an avocado, fruit, homemade energy bars, trail mix and raw nuts are always a good bet. Keep healthy snacks in your desk, gym bag and car (or bike pannier). You can also carry green powders, chia and hemp seeds in your shaker cup.
  5. Blend it.  There’s nothing easier than throwing a few pieces of fruit, leafy greens, and other ingredients into a blender to make your own instant and uber nutritious superfood smoothies or bowls.
