What Is Healthy Meal?

Planning by prepping meals or packing snacks and bringing them with you on the go:
Meal prepping, packing snacks, and bringing them with you on the go are great ways to ensure you’re eating healthy, nutritious meals and staying on track with your diet.
Meal prepping is a straightforward process. You can meal prep for one meal or all of your meals for the week. You can cook all of your food ahead of time or cook some of it and then pack it up to eat later.
Packing snacks and bringing them with you on the go is a great way to ensure you have something healthy to eat when you’re hungry but don’t have time to stop for a meal. Some good snacks to pack include fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, whole grain crackers, yogurt, cheese, hard-boiled eggs, trail mix, granola bars, fruit bars, veggie chips, popcorn, rice cakes, peanut butter or almond butter packets, dried fruit, and roasted chickpeas.
