5 Healthy Meals That Can Sustain You During Busy Days at Work

Published

Looking for that delicious meal that can keep you all filled up during a busy day? Check out our list for your favourite.

Here are delicious simple, filling, delicious meals that can keep you focused and fabulous on a busy day. The good part is that they take minutes to prepare, yet keep you filled up for hours. Here are five of my faves according to RodaleWellness.
1. Protein shake
This is my go-to for breakfast, or any meal when I just need something fast. Throw my All-in-One powder with avocado, kale or other leafy greens, frozen raspberries, and unsweetened coconut or almond milk for the fastest filling meal replacement on the planet.
You’ve got tons of options here. I make mine with chocolate protein shake mix, avocado, coconut milk, chia seeds, and then I throw some raw cacao nibs on top. I can’t imagine a day without a protein shake.
2. Big-ass salad (BAS)
With a big nod to Elaine on Seinfeld, a BAS might be your fastest, healthiest way to load up on non-starchy veggies, lean protein, healthy fats, and slow low carbs, as long as you avoid the worst salad ingredients. Sometimes I’ll stop by my local health food store and throw a few together, but building a salad becomes super easy at home. I keep my fridge stocked with leafy greens and pre-cooked chicken, toss in some veggies and maybe some black beans or quinoa, and drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil and red wine vinegar. Fast, healthy, and I can get on with my busy day.
3. Sliced turkey with avocado
I discovered this easy hack one particularly grueling taping day when I literally had five minutes between takes. Roll nitrate-free pre-cooked turkey with some sliced avocado and pair with a handful of slow-roasted or dehydrated heart-healthy almonds or a Virgin Diet Bar.
4. Aseptic-packed wild salmon
A tender, flakey piece of wild salmon makes a fab protein-and-healthy-fat source, but cooking fish can sometimes feel like a chore. That’s why I keep pre-cooked aseptic-packed wild salmon in my fridge. (Check labels to make sure your salmon is wild and not farmed.) Simply peel off the skin and toss it onto a salad or with some steamed veggies and quinoa.
5. Paleo wrap
While I occasionally use gluten-free rice wraps, Paleo wraps have become my new favorite because they’re low in carbs but high in flavor. Throw some lean protein and leafy greens, roll, and enjoy. Pre-cooked grilled chicken and guac is my current favorite, but I also like tossing stuff like hummus or cashew cheese into these wraps, which you can order on Amazon.
