What do you use to store your prepared food? I use predominantly glass containers, and not only is that better for you (and the environment), but they are easier to clean since foods won’t molt or melt on! Win!
Coming from from a vacation is always a mad dash to get things in order, and keep on track without veering too far off course, and prepping and getting back in the game is critical, or else that “vacation mindset” might overstay it’s welcome!
So snacks… that can withstand Florida heat but still nourish me and keep me stable. I opted to make my own trail mix and bring it, so I don’t have to worry about what’s in it, and it’s a good balance of things!
Here’s whats in it (this is portioned out into several bags)
- 1 cup sliced almonds.
- 1 cup raw pumpkin seeds.
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (I buy them in chunks and slice them)
- 1/2 cup raw walnut pieces.
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds.
- 1/2 cup raisins.
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries.
Do you make your own trail mix? What do you put in it?
I kinda love simplicity. I know in my life, I tend to over-complicate things (and/or over-think things, but thats another post for another day!). Sometimes I find myself craving getting back to the simple. And I find this concept very simple (and easy to remember!)
I talk a lot about planning in my Accountability Groups. As you might have noticed, I am of the belief that if you fail to plan, you are planning to fail. And even with a plan, sometimes life gets in the way, but at least with a plan, the consequences are less.
Planning is simple (it might seem complicated but thats all in your head, I promise!) – schedule your workouts. Do your grocery shopping. chop your veggies, portion out what you can, make it easy to grab in a hurry. Cook some stuff so it’s just a matter of reheating it on those busy days. Lay your workout clothes out overnight so they are easy to grab when it comes time to workout. It’s not as hard it as may seem, and taking that time to prepare really helps save you time on every other day.
Give it a try, I promise it will make a difference! Proper prior planning prevents poor performance.
