Eating well is more difficult than you might think. Like with everything small changes would make for long-lasting results and smart eating is not an exception to the rule.
1. Quality Breakfast
Breakfast is the first meal of the day, but how can you find time for a worthy breakfast that is easy to make? Sometimes I only realize that I skipped my breakfast as I am pulling off the driveway. I suggest to have a short list of versatile breakfasts that are easy to make and nutritionally valuable – parfait, homemade granola cereal, egg sandwich, and my newly discovered Baked Chicken o-la-la.
- 18 oz – Tyson Grilled and Ready chicken strips (any variety you like)
- 1 – Tomato
- 2 – Egg
- 5 tbsp – Milk
- 1 tbsp – Flour
- Salt to taste
- Preheat the over to 375F
- Remove the skin from the tomato: Slice a shallow X into the bottom of the tomato (opposite the stem side). Put it in the boiling water for 25 seconds. Place the tomatoes directly into the bowl of ice water and let them cool off. Begin peeling the skin at the X, pulling the skin back gently.
- Slice the tomato and put it aside.
- Blend eggs, milk, flour and salt.
- Put Tyson chicken strips on the bottom of the baking pan, cover them with tomato slices and pour the egg mixture over.
- Bake for about 15-20 minutes
2. Emergency Snack
Nothing gets faster off the eating well track than sudden hunger and a candy bar from the vending machine. Be ready and have an emergency smart food snack in your purse. For example, small packets of food can satisfy your immediate hunger, offer quick nutrition and have a relatively long shelf (or purse) life.
You have to agree these 80 or so calories and will save you from a lot of troubles.
3 Use shortcuts
Slow cooker, rice cooker, and indoor grill will be your best friends if you are always running late, but trying to living healthy. Any time you think you have no time to make a meal, one of these appliances can deliver a quick meal or overnight dish with minimal efforts.
I honestly believe that a slow cooker can make any dish taste better, indoor grill can deliver restaurant quality panini sandwiches, and the rice cooker can also cook buckwheat or quinoa (valuable eating well grains). Just this morning I realized I had no lunch. While I was getting the kids ready to go, the rice cooker produced a great blend of buckwheat and quinoa while an Asian chicken tight by Tyson added the right amount of protein.
Adding flavor to a meal will do more than just make your food smell and taste good. It is also great for the portion control and just might be the key to living well. Flavorful food doesn’t just fill your stomach – it also satisfies your taste buds. And you will quickly discover that it promotes portion control as you will feel full sooner.

What is your last-minute plan for the day when you run late and don’t have the time to make dinner? My usual first choice is pizza, but wait – there are other living right options.
