Rapid Balanced Meals - Top Tips

There is much confusion about what “healthy food” means. In simple terms it is choosing food that is as minimally processed and close to what is found in nature

Just knowing what is healthy doesn’t guarantee you’ll eat in this manner. Set up your environment so these are the most likely foods that you will choose (because as humans, we typically follow the path of least resistance)

When trying to change habits, focus on one thing at a time and remember the 3 R’s – Reminder, Routine, Reward

Prioritise prepping food and making quick and simple meals that can be created in less than 20 minutes

Keep healthy non-perishable food in your bag and desk at work so you are never caught out

Eat before you get too hungry. The hungrier you become, the more palatability will win out over healthful choices
