It is much easier to make healthy choices when you are surrounded by them. Create a “staples” list of healthy foods that you always want to keep on hand to “fill in the gaps” when you don’t have time to prepare anything. Though your weekly foods will change, always make sure to have at least 5 items from your staples list on hand at all times. When you run out of one, make sure to put it on the list for your next trip to the store. If you always try to keep 5 items at home, you will always have something to grab and run out the door or to curb a craving. Some ideas include cheese sticks, individual cottage cheese or Greek yogurt, 100 calorie packs of almonds, 90 calorie packs of almond butter (Barney Butter is great), apples, clementines, and tuna pouches.
