Tip for Tuesday: Healthy Choices

Yesterday was a great start to the week! I tracked my food/water intake and even got in a nice long walk with my girl, Piper. It was such a beautiful day! I pushed her in the stroller around our local park and she really enjoyed the ride. Just another day at the office!

My eating was pretty good yesterday. I have a lot of healthy food choices on hand at the house because I spent a little time planning ahead for this week. Planning ahead meals and snacks really makes a difference as to how my week will go. When I have healthy choices on hand, I eat healthier. Simple as that!

Healthy Choices of the Week:

Breakfast choices:
Oatmeal with fruit
Breakfast burrito

Lunch choices:
Salad with egg, tomato, cucumber
Turkey avocado wrap
Tuna sandwich

Dinner menu:
Monday - Grilled Chicken Salad
Tuesday - Fish with Asparagus
Wednesday - Teriyaki Pork with Veggies
Thursday - Steak Salad
Friday - BBQ Chicken Grilled Pizza

Snack choices:
Celery with peanut butter
Balance Bar
Bell peppers

If you notice, I like to give myself some different choices for breakfast, lunch and my snacks. If I were to eat the same thing every day, that would get boring, so I make sure to have at least three choices to choose from for my meals. The dinner menu is flexible, as well. Sometimes I'll switch up my days depending on what I am craving more. 

The great thing about planning ahead and having healthy choices on hand is that I have everything I need to make these meals and snacks at home, so there's no wasted time running out for ingredients throughout the week. I get my grocery shopping done for the week before the week even begins!

Readers, what healthy choices do you have on hand for this week?
*Stay tuned for a Balance Bar GIVEAWAY starting tomorrow!
