Use a basket of fruit to help keep your diet on track no matter how busy your schedule is. Eating right is a huge challenge for millions of people today, but not because they don't know how to eat healthy. Most of the time people end up eating junk food because they are too busy to cook healthy meals or grab healthy snacks. Or, they think they are. It's true that for many professionals and for parents who spend hours every day commuting to and from work, driving kids to and from school and lessons and sports and shopping for the household and running errands it can be very difficult to eat healthy. When you're in the car most of your time it's easier to grab a fast food meal or a fat laden high calorie cup of specialty coffee to keep you going than it is to stop at a market, shop for healthy food and drinks, and then get back on the road. Add in the lack of exercise that comes from sitting in a vehicle all that time and you have a recipe for a very unhealthy lifestyle.
But keeping a basket of fruit in the car with you can help you get healthy snacks and fruit juice even when you're busy, and it can provide healthy snacks for your kids too. A basket of oranges, grapefruits and tangerines doesn't take up a lot of room and can be easily secured in a grocery net or in one of the seats in the car. You can even tuck fruit into the center console or drink holders. When you're hungry or thirsty reach for a juicy orange instead of an overpriced cup of coffee and you'll get a natural energy boost that won't leave you shaking and jittery after it wears off. You won't have to stop because it's easy to fruit on the go, and the peels are easy to clean up. In fact oranges and grapefruits are very easy foods to eat while you're traveling, and their natural protective peel means that the fruit won't be damaged if it accidentally rolls under a seat or gets dropped. You will be able to eat healthy on the go, and you will be showing your children how to make healthier food choices. Keep a basket of fruit in your car for healthy snacking and you'll have a lot more energy to keep up with your busy life.
