7When I have a few plates in the air, I end up, like many of you I'm sure, not eating properly. We all do this from time to time. The end of the day will come and I realize I've had nothing but a few corn chips & salsa since breakfast. Occasionally, Andrew Henry gets home from work and I haven't eaten breakfast yet. Whoopsie. Not good. Not good for the body at all.
I've implemented a new policy. I'm getting a few healthy nibbles out in the morning and setting them on the counter. If I don't have time to make lunch - no problem, there are some healthy options already right there on the counter.
This snack plate was from a day I had a good breakfast - I knew I wouldn't be needing much. Most days I do have a good breakfast. It is my favorite meal after all. On those other days, the rare ones when I don't eat breakfast or I think I might not be getting to dinner, my plate looks a little more like this...
Oh was that cheese divine. We'll cover my love of cheese some other time. This is about setting out some snacks for yourself (or packing some to go), first thing in the morning. It's working out fairly well for me. I'm passing the idea on - just in case you've got a few plates up in the air as well.
You know what else is a little timesaver for me? When I get home from the grocery store, I chop up the green onions before I put them in the fridge. It takes about the same time to chop up the whole bunch as it does one, so why not do them all at once? Then, whenever you need a little flavor for your scrambled eggs, or some crunchy goodness in your salad, just open up your fridge and they are ready to go!
What's your favorite "go to" snack or timesaver tip?
