If you are a person that doesn’t like to cook, or doesn’t have enough time, you should orient for healthy meals that can be prepared fast. Breakfast can be a coup of black coffee and a bowl of Kashi Go Lean cereal with soy milk. For lunch you can eat a piece of wheat toast with avocado, hemp seed hearts and tomato slices, topped with a fried egg. Of course, you can eat something else depending on your taste and other reasons.
Eating the same things during the day also means that you can control your budget and your nutrition. When you’re going to shopping don’t forget to buy eggs, soy milk, cereal, avocados, tomatoes, bread, hemp seeds, fruits. If you have the same eating schedule you can cut down on the temptation to eat out and keep yourself on budget. Now you can whip up a healthy and delicious meal quickly. So, you can get protein from the cereal and eggs, vitamin C and K from the tomato, omega-3’s from the hemp seeds, and fiber from the whole wheat bread.
According to nutritionists, variety is always recommended. Different foods offer different nutrition profiles. Leafy greens offer vitamin K while red or orange foods are high in beta-carotene. Is it wrong or hurtful to eat the same thing? Actually, it’s not detrimental, particularly because you’re eating a different dinner and have some variety on the weekends. If you have a different source of protein for dinner—like beans or tofu—keeping the base of your breakfast and lunch the same is not a problem. You can certainly increase your nutritional quality with variety, but there’s no problem with keeping the base the same. Adding a few different types of fruit to your breakfast for variety, or switching the vegetables you put in your toast at lunch for an extra nutritional punch.
