As moms, we are always on the go. Even in our own home we are running from dishes to wiping bottoms, to emails and back to dishes again. There’s a rare and sweet opportunity when we sneak off to our favorite hiding place, which lasts about 1 minute before we hear a disaster brewing. Eating healthy is difficult being so busy, so here are:

5 ways to eat healthier on the go:

Focus on What You Can Grab: Fill your fridge with healthy items you can grab. These are things like fresh-cut fruit, protein shakes and juices, apples or cheese sticks. I personally love these Odwalla Juices, the Groovin Greens Fruite and Veggie drink because its straight up clean and pure. Drinking vitamins is one of your best choices for grabbing something healthy on the go. Check out what is in these: juice of 2 1/3 apples – juice of 1 3/4 cups of cucumber – juice of 1 cup of kale – juice of 1 cup of spinach – plus 3 other juices.  There’s no added sugar, vegan, Gluten free, pasteurized and Non-GMO.  The overall calorie count is great too because just eating an apple is over 100 calories, so you can drink all these amazing vitamins for about the same.  Inhaling nutrients and vitamins is so important. You want to nourish in no time with something that tastes good, so I chose these as a super easy-to-grab healthy item! You can also save $1 on your next purchase of in-store fresh cut fruit when you buy any TWO (2) Odwalla 15.2 fl. oz. (You’ll receive a print out coupon at the register.). Offer ends 10/31/2017.

 

Create a Snack Basket or Drawer: Designate one basket or drawer in your fridge or kitchen for healthy snacks. You have to be able to grab it and throw it in your purse or diaper bag in a matter of five seconds, or it won’t happen. If snacks have a designated place, you are more likely to fill it with healthy items. The kids like to see what I pack in the snack basket too, and they know they can grab baggies out of there. A basket is easy to take out and fill, then put back in, but the drawer works well too! Sometimes I do more trail mix, crackers or satsumas that I don’t necessarily want cold, so I keep the basket on the counter.

Make Your Own Snack Packs: Taking some time to actually package your snacks together really helps, and for some reason, it makes me more excited about my snacks. Maybe because it brings me back to my lunchbox days. I grab things like cheese sticks, hard-boiled eggs, trail mix and fruit at the grocery store. Then, I bag my food in baggies, so I can just grab the bags with my Odwalla Groovin Greens and throw them in my purse or lunch box.

Get an Adult Lunchbox: This is my favorite part. I looked on Amazon for some adult lunch boxes, and there are some really fun items you can find. Having my own lunch box is kinda fun, it motivates me to fill it with healthy things, and it just helps me stay organized with all the kid snacks and gear I have to haul around.

Know What Healthy Fast Food Looks Like: Lastly, we all know that being able to pack healthy isn’t always an option. Sometimes you literally have to run out the door. For snacks on-the-go, it’s difficult to run in the grocery store with kids in tow. I have some staples at drive through stops that I know are healthy. Always chose salads, smaller meals, water and sides of fruit if you can. Ultimately you want to stop in Grocery stores, rather than a drive through. The Odwalla Groovin Greens are in almost all the grocery stores, I grab mine at either Safeway or Albertsons, so even if I forget to pack it, I can buy it. At grocery stores go for the pre-cut fresh fruit, hummus and crackers, string cheese, turkey lunch meat or other quick and healthy choices like those.

 

I have a very specialized program for postpartum mamas looking to heal, nourish and regain their strength. I really struggled healing after my first child, and even went through pelvic floor physical therapy for weeks to manage scar tissue that developed from tearing. I have experience studying nutrition, physical therapy and I taught Pilates, so I’ve put together a program I wish I would’ve followed from the beginning.

A program that first heals your body through specialized movements and nourishing foods. Foods are so essential to your body finding the nutrients it needs to put itself back together again. Your postpartum body needs special care in the first 4-6 weeks where you focus on regaining strength and properly fueling your body for breastfeeding.

Here is what one mama emailed me on the program:

“I absolutely love the program! Just got finished with workout 4 and I’m dying😂 I can only do these 2x thru and my second round is pretty funny to see I’m sure😉! I will work up to 3x:-) By the way, your little boy angel in the videos is too precious and makes me smile! My boys have been doing these with me as well🙌🏼!

The information and the eating plan are both fantastic. I was so happy to hear that great waynof calorie counting when nursing! I have gotten my 3 day average and now I’m going to reduce by 100 calories today! Thanks so much!!
I haven’t had a chance to recommend to postpartum moms yet but I will soon!! 😘

Here is what another mama posted in the Facebook Group:

Feeling GREAT on this program!!! It’s unbelievable how eating clean makes such a difference. Let me rephrase that…it’s amazing the difference eating nutrient dense foods makes! My skin is glowing and I’m already shedding pounds! I also tried the first workout today and did well although I had to modify a bit and omit the backwards burpee (I had cesarean just over a month ago and don’t quite feel ready for that exercise just yet but I will get there). Loving this plan! Thank you SO MUCH for tour help! Currently eating pictures lunch while writing this ​”

This program then moves you into gaining physical fitness back. I will never forget the first time I tried to go for a run around 12 weeks postpartum after my first baby. I didn’t do any strength work, so I was literally jelly. I had lost all my extra fat and my previous muscle. So depressing. I was barely able to start gaining it back before I got pregnant and sick again with my second. I’ve learned so much on maintaining muscle postpartum through a unique diet and Pilates routines. I walk you through all of this too!

Lastly, I take you into a workout program to combine with a meal plan to help you lose the baby weight, not your milk!! !

Enroll in the course before the price goes up after July 4th!

I created this program to be affordable and realistic for new mams!
