Meal Planning

For the places where you might grab a snack or have a meal on the go (such as the car or at your desk), make sure you have nutritious snacks available or at home that you can take with you. For example:

“Grab-and-go” fruits: apples, oranges, bananas, canned fruit without added sugars, and raisins
Washed and chopped fresh vegetables: celery, carrots, and cucumbers
Low-fat and fat-free milk products: yogurt without added sugars, milk, and low-fat cheeses
Whole-grain crackers and breads
Protein choices such as low-fat deli turkey slices or almonds and other nuts and seeds

Take the time to make a shopping list and re-stock your cabinets and fridge with healthy options. It’s also a good idea to think about stocking your office cabinet or car glove box with healthy shelf-stable treats if these are places where you snack. You’ll find it’s easier to make better choices when you have a good variety of nutritious foods available in the places where you eat.
