It can be so hard to make healthy choices during a busy schedule, but I hope my tips and tricks will help you find a rhythm that works for you! Remember to ALWAYS give yourself grace.

What I Eat In A Day: MORNING
I start my day with a preworkout. Most days I either take watermelon Amino or Celsius if I am running out the door. I also really like Rush preworkout – use my code HEATHER to save $10 off your first order!
What I Eat In A Day: AFTERNOON
I typically am either eating leftovers, or a salad kit with chicken. My go-to salad kit is these super easy kits from Gardencup. Just grab one out of the refrigerator, shake it up and enjoy! Better still is that they get delivered right to your door and there’s TONS of options! My favorites are the caprese or the mandarin orange + the cobb!

Here’s a meal planning tip for you: have a PLAN. I plan all my meals out usually on Sundays to set myself up for success! Each week, I make a plan for every meal in the upcoming week- not only dinners, but also lunch! If you’re looking for new ideas, you can get a TON of free ideas and recipes HERE!
You don’t have to overcomplicate it! When you’re at the grocery store, pick up a salad kit and a rotisserie chicken to eat for lunch throughout the week. I also like chicken sausage because while I’m on a phone call I can throw it on the skillet. I like lunch options that are not hands-on at all because I keep such a busy schedule!
If I’m out running errands and start feeling like I need a quick and clean pick me up, I always reach for my Go Energy drink. I love it because it’s clean, and it’s a cold drink that helps me focus + blast through the rest of my to do list. If I want something to eat, I go for a One bar , banana, Verb Energy (click HERE to get 16 bars for $12 + FREE shipping!) bar, an Aldi bar (super affordable!) or a Go Macro bar. If I’m at home, I usually snack on mixed nuts or fruit.
What I Eat In A Day: EVENING
I usually aim for VERY simple dinners. One of my favorites is my sheet pan recipe that is so unbelievable easy. I will also do chicken like I mentioned above and throw it on a salad. The kids are typically eating some of whatever we’re having. Finn enjoys eating salad! Leyton doesn’t LOVE grilled chicken so we might toss him a couple of chicken nuggets in the microwave. I’ll usually add carrots or fries to round things out for him! He is my picky eater which is why I wrote my Healthy Eating: Kid’s Edition eBook! I know how HARD it can be to find healthy things your littles will eat.
If I ever reach the end of the day and think, “shoot I did not reach my protein goal!” I will sometimes fix myself an Iconic Protein shake. And I’m trying to keep up with logging my Faster Way to Fat Loss macro goals throughout the day with the free version of My Fitness Pal.
