How to Eat Healthy When You’re Stuck at Home
Filed under: Nutritional Supports
Eating a healthy diet can be one of the most important steps you can take toward overall better health. A nutritious eating plan can ward off, or even reverse some chronic diseases. Unfortunately, getting to the grocery store isn’t as easy as it used to be and if you are limiting your trips out of the house right now, it’s difficult to keep a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables on hand.
Consider the following strategies and incorporate them into your regular routine, and you can eat a diet that is healthy but also convenient.
Plan ahead. It’s easier to stick to a pre-planned diet, than to come up with one spontaneously. Take the time to plan your meals for each week, make a grocery list, and then shop for everything you need in just one trip.
Use quality nutritional supplements. Supplements such as GIA’s i-thrive offer an all-in-one nutritional beverage. With antioxidant-rich ingredients curated into a great tasting drink, i-thrive is formulated to support a healthy immune system, boost your energy, and replenish vital nutrients. It allows you to get a nutritional boost, even on days when you may not have fresh fruits and vegetables available.
Include healthy proteins. Meat can be frozen if you don’t consume it right away. Other sources of protein (like eggs, cheese, yogurt, beans, lentils, and tofu) can provide adequate protein and last in your refrigerator for a couple weeks. (Pay attention to expiration dates.)
Consider meal kits. For retirees without large families, buying groceries can often feel wasteful. You might not use everything before it expires, and there’s no need to purchase large amounts of ingredients needed for each recipe. Mail-order meal kits make the perfect solution for those who want to keep their waste – and their trips to the store – down.
Hydrate with water. If you’re relying upon diet soda or other flavored drinks, you’re probably dehydrating yourself without even knowing it. Drink GIA’s i-H2O to get the most absorption out of your water, and you may be able to save a bit on your grocery expenditures. That adds up over time!
Identify delivery-friendly restaurant options. Sometimes you don’t feel like cooking, and that’s okay. Know where your healthy, affordable options are located ahead of time, so you’ll know where you can get nutritional restaurant meals delivered to you.
