Need help quickly putting together meals with healthy eating in mind? Who doesn’t, right? Each week in January, we’re featuring seven tips mined from our Health Starts Here™ program to get you from Monday to Sunday with an eye toward a healthier lifestyle.
Tip 1: Map Out Your Shopping List
Organize your grocery-shopping list by aisle or on a grid that corresponds to the layout of your store. This will help save time and keep you focused on what’s on your list.
Tip 2: Be Your Own Prep Cook
Tip 3: Set Up a DIY Salad Bar
Create a mini “salad bar” in a fridge drawer for customizable, quick and healthy lunch making.
Tip 4: Keep Frozen On Hand
Frozen fruits and vegetables help avoid prep time and waste, while preserving nutrients that decrease daily in fresh fruit and vegetables.
Tip 5: Maximize Your Time in the Kitchen
Maximize your time in the kitchen. When you make a salad for dinner, make double and take the second one for lunch the next day.
Tip 6: Try for Five
Build a collection of five-ingredient recipes. Make sure they're quick to assemble, nutritious and delicious.
Tip 7: Swap Menus
