5 Steps to Healthy Home Eating

5 Steps to Healthy Home Eating

Eating well at home should be a breeze with a bit of planning (this is what we struggle with the most!) and the right mindset. Here are some easy steps to nourish the body and feel fantastic.

  1. Smart Prep for Fruits and Veggies:
  • Cut up your favorite fruits and veggies in advance and store them in airtight containers in the fridge.
  • Mix fruits like strawberries, berries, and watermelon for quick smoothies or yogurt toppings.
  • Have containers of cut-up veggies like green beans, broccoli, and carrots ready for stir-fries, salads, or quick sides.
  • Don't forget canned veggies like beans and chickpeas for salads or cooking sauces.
  1. Snack Planning for the Win:
  • Meal prepping isn't just for main meals—snacks matter too! Prepare 3-5 days' worth of healthy snacks for easy access.
  • Options include cut-up carrots and cucumbers with dip, wholemeal wraps with hummus, homemade banana-zucchini muffins, or a trail mix of seeds, nuts, and berries.
  1. Create Well-Balanced Meals:
  • Opt for balanced and nutritious meals to stay focused and energized throughout the day.
  • Add protein, healthy fats, fiber, and a variety of fruits and veggies to your lunches.
  • Get creative with meals like pasta sauce with peas, corn, chicken, and mushrooms or beef and vegetable meatballs with carrot and zucchini.
  1. Stick to Mealtime Routine:
  • Plan meals no more than 3-4 hours apart to maintain a consistent eating schedule.
  • Set reminders for breaks and lunch to avoid snacking out of boredom.
  • Check out the Online Menu Planner from Healthy Eating Active Living NSW for recipe ideas and meal planning assistance.
  1. Mindful Eating Away from the Desk:
  • Take breaks away from your work desk to eat mindfully.
  • Sit in a different room or outdoors, and avoid eating in front of screens.
  • Ask yourself if you're physically hungry before snacking, and keep snacks away from your work area to reduce mindless munching.

Whether you're working from home temporarily or long-term, take it one day at a time and make choices that work best for you. Your health journey starts with simple, thoughtful steps. 🌱💚
