An Apple a Week: Quick Food Tips and Recommendations

This week’s article is going to be short, sweet, and to the point. In between my day job, my wife, my rental properties, my housework, my schooling, and my work here with Greener Grass, I don’t have much “free time,” and I realize every minute saved goes a long way to making my life easier. I’m sure you also have a desire to make things easier on yourself. To that end, I want to share with you my tips and recommendations when it comes to eating well in a hurry:

1. CocoChia Bars – these are actually tasty and healthy! A little pricey and only available from one or two places, you can get them direct from the manufacturer, Living Fuel. Don’t let their “Christian Company” spiel stop you, they don’t seem to proselytize or anything.

2. FRS Energy Drink – not loaded with caffeine or sugar like most commercial “energy drinks,” this gives me good focus and pick up without giving me the jitters or a crash. Check out their products online, but buy them in person. I wouldn’t recommend you sign up for the auto-shipment, but that’s just my natural instinct with all automatic purchases. I usually find it cheaper in local grocery stores and I don’t have to pay shipping.

3. Trader Joe’s Raw Almonds – well priced, raw, and a handful is capable of sustaining you for a two hour meeting. Healthy and satisfying, I always travel with a small bag in case I get trapped on the tarmac.

4. Chia Seeds – I add a tablespoon to cereal, yogurt, smoothies and baked goods. They are surprisingly fun to eat and tasty. This is a great way to perk up oatmeal or other bland foods. I get mine at Trader Joes but there are a tremendous amount of varieties easily available.

5. Baby Carrots – Running late to an appointment? Grab a handful of these. Realized you haven’t eaten as many fruits and vegetables as you intended today? Grab a handful of these. They are filling and satisfying to eat. Low calorie and chock-full of nutrition. They are cheap and easy to find.

6. Local Honey – Great for allergies and a quick burst of energy before the gym or a meeting. If you are going to use a sweetener, let this be the one. Great in tea and useful when cooking. Make sure you get honey local to where you spend the most time. The website I linked to sounds like an escort service or dating site, but it can help you find honey that is relevant to your needs and tastes.
