Yes, we are all pretty busy, all the time.

We all have difficult jobs, we are always behind with our work and our bosses are always on our back, no matter how much effort we put into the projects we are working on.

But that shouldn’t be an excuse for eating junk food on a daily basis.

Here we have 5 simple tips on how to eat healthy even though you think you don’t have enough time to do so.

1. Quick Vegetable Meals Are Key

Grab you favorite veggies, add some sea salt and nuts or legumes, put them in a pan and cook them for about 10 minutes.

Our suggestions when it comes to vegetables are:

  • chard
  • kale
  • spinach
  • garlic
  • fennel
  • broccoli
  • or any other green vegetable.

You can always throw in some beans or lentils for protein and carbohydrate intake.

2. Nuts & Legumes To The Rescue

Veggies are maybe key when it comes to healthy eating, but it is crucial for your body to have something other than vegetables in your meals. Nuts and legumes are always welcome. If you have a pressure cooker, preparing these will be a walk in the park.

3. Salads, Salads, Salads

Cooked veggies are delicious, but fresh are also quite important. Preparing any kind of salad won’t take you more than 10 minutes, and you will have a nice and healthy meal to get you through your day.

For a quick vitamin boost, add some fruits to your salad. Pears or apples are always a good choice, and they go well with cabbage, cucumber, and other similar veggies. Add some walnuts with olive oil and balsamic vinegar to round up the whole shebang.

4. Scrambled Eggs

Protein is never to be overlooked, and what better and faster way to get some protein than eggs? It will take you only 10 minutes to prepare a nice meal with 2-3 eggs, so there’s no excuse! Add some spinach and garlic to make it extra tasty.

5. Cook In Large Batches

In order to save time in the long run, you can always prepare meals and cook in big batches, freeze the leftovers, and microwave it later. This works best with legumes which you can then later add to any meal.
