Healthy Options to the Late Night
No matter how carefully you plan, there will always be times when you are too busy to cook a full meal. Or, you may be out running errands for hours when hunger strikes. At these times, it may be tempting to hit the drive thru.
The problem is that even supposedly healthy fast food choices rarely are. Fast food is inexpensive and quick because they use processed, low-quality ingredients that contain little nutritional value.
It can be tough to deal with hunger when there isn't time to cook, or when you aren't at home to prepare a meal.
Plan Ahead To Avoid Last Minute Fast Food Runs
The best strategy is to plan for the unexpected. Keeping healthy snacks in your car can help stave off hunger when you are on the run, so you don't feel as tempted to run to the drive thru. You may want to keep health bars (like Metabolic Research Center Protein Bars), nuts and seeds, or other non-perishable snacks handy so you don't become overly hungry.
Keeping some easy to prepare or pre-bagged snacks at home can also help. You don't need to make a full meal. Scrambled eggs or an omelet with veggies only takes a few minutes.
If you are craving fries, make your own seasoned sweet potato fries in the oven. Another strategy is to prepare some healthy foods and meals ahead of time and freeze them for easy and quick thawing and heating later on.
If you absolutely must eat fast food, try to order the healthier options, forgoing fried foods. You may want to have them hold the sauce, and opt for water instead of soda.
Once you have become accustomed to eating real food, you will find that you no longer crave fast food, and you will find it unpleasant to eat.
