In today’s highly busy schedules, it is essential that we take care of ourselves. What better way to ensure that than to eat more healthy?

With increasing work hours and load, and a generally ‘occupied’ lifestyle of work, social obligations and family it is often seen that individuals fail to keep up with a healthy, nutritious diet on a daily basis. The ease with which fast-food is available makes one more inclined to take the easy way out for ‘just one time’ instead of cooking something or investing time in our meals.

Here are 5 ways of eating healthier during a busy schedule.

Stay hydrated

The first rule towards eating right is, and always will be, drinking lots of water and keeping yourself hydrated.  Always carry a water bottle with yourself, or make sure that you get up and go to that water cooler at regular intervals. This small action can do wonders for your body.

Eat raw foods

Include some raw foods in your diet. Raw foods are extremely nutritious and filling. However, make sure that they are washed properly because of the increasing use of chemicals in most farming. You can use vegetable purifiers which make raw vegetables and fruits free of contaminants like pesticides using ozone technology.

Always take out time for breakfast

It is undoubtedly the most important meal of the day. Don’t just have a cup of coffee and feel like you’re done. Hence, a filling and nutritious breakfast can make your day.

Reduce the consumption of packaged foods

Always try to have a simply cooked meal rather than something from a tin can into the microwave.

Plan and store

If you have problems cooking every day, cook in bulk and try storing pre-cooked meals for the coming week on weekends which you can relish without hassle in the following days. It will ensure that you eat healthy without having to shy away from cooking your foods too!

These are just some of the umpteen ways one can keep up with their health in a hectic schedule, do comment if you have any more suggestions!
