We all know how important a healthy eating is, but it’s not easy to make good food choices when you’re always on the go. In the past few years, however, there’s been much more awareness and information about ingredients and where packaged food comes from, so it’s easier than ever to eat clean. But it still takes some planning. Here are a few clean eating tips for working girls on the go.
What Exactly Is Clean Eating?
Clean eating is more than just choosing the right foods, it’s also about changing your relationship to food.
A clean diet is organic and healthy but most important, it’s about eating real food rather than processed or packaged. If it is packaged, the ingredient list should be short and you should be able to recognize (and pronounce) every ingredient on the label.
A clean lifestyle also involves paying attention to when and why you eat—regularly and for nourishment. The Mayo Clinic advises, “Eat regular, balanced meals and healthy snacks that are nourishing and not too rushed. Eat at home more often and prepare food in healthy ways. Pack food to eat away from home when on the road, at work or activities.”
It does take some extra time and effort—that’s why clean eating for working women can be a real challenge.
