Choosing quality over convenience is important when it comes to nutrition. Foods that take time to prepare are generally healthier and contain more nutrients. Yes fast food is convenient (especially for those with a busy schedule), but it comes at a cost.
Consistently consuming these foods negatively impacts your health. Preparation is the key to limit times where a “grab and go” meal is the only option.
Plan your meals in advance. Pick a few days out of the week where you have time to cook – prepare meals for the next fews days and you’re set. Having a schedule written out removes the need to stop at a convenience store on the way home.
Quality food is important for long term health. Give your body what it needs. It will thank you.
