Do You Feel too Busy to Eat Healthy? Add Green, it is Simple!

Too busy to eat healthy!  That is what many women think.  I’ll admit; it can be overwhelming to think of all of the things I should and should not eat.  To make things easier, have you thought about focusing on one healthy habit at a time?  It can make things much easier. For example, take a little challenge this month and see how much green you can add to your diet each day.  Don’t worry about what you should not eat, just think of ways to add green. It can be simply done even for busy woman.  Here are my top picks.

For a few snacks to go, green apples and pears are a great quick afternoon pick-me-up.


One of my favorite snacks is to chop raw zucchini with carrots.  Throw them in a Ziploc when you are on the run and you are able to grab some green at any time.

For lunch, I love to add green grapes to my spinach salad with raspberry salad dressing.

 A favorite summer time dinner is asparagus on the grill and it’s easy to sneak in broccoli, zucchini, green peppers into spaghetti or lasagna for my kids.  If chopped real small, they never notice.

I love to cook cabbage on a Sunday afternoon to have ready for my lunch or dinner during the week. Even though I am the only one in my house who likes it, at 88 cents a head (on sale) I can afford it if I have to throw some out.

Of course, those are all of my favorites.  However, there are so many things to chose from, such as: arugula, artichokes, rabe, kale, collard greens, green beans, lettuce, and cucumbers.  It is not hard.  Just think about your schedule and think outside of the box and you can “Go Green” in your diet, one step at a time, no matter how busy life gets.

When you focus on simple things to add to your diet, it moves your attention away from what should not be a part of your diet.  “Going Green” really is simple,.  Why not try it!.
