UpdatedTrends.com: Long hours at the office, busy schedules and errands are forcing us to always be on the run and eating healthy and on time can definitely be a challenge during those days. The good news is that we can stay in shape and be healthy even when our time to enjoy a meal is limited, so here are 3 ways to stay fit while eating on the go.
1. Healthy nuts – Nuts are rich in protein, minerals, healthy fats and vitamins and regardless of whether they are eaten raw or dried and roasted, they have the ability to fuel muscle growth and promote weight loss. All nuts contain plenty of omega-6 fatty acids, but walnuts and pecans in particular contain high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which can help in burning fat. Make sure to pack some nuts in a simple plastic bag and carry them with you.
2. Tuna salad – Canned tuna is extremely rich in healthy omega-3 fatty acids, proteins and minerals and can be easily made into a delicious and nutritious meal – a tuna salad – in just a couple of minutes. Tuna salad can be made with onions, celery and carrots, or even fruits, so try mixing things up and make a flavor combination that works for you.
3. Fruits – You cannot go wrong with having an apple (or any other fruit) a day. Fresh fruits contain high levels of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and fiber. If you are looking to gain muscle, opt for a banana and if you are on your weight-loss plan, go for an orange.
