i am always eating on the go but wanted to know if it is healthy or balanced...
today i ate:
1 ounce walnuts
some carrots and mushrooms
4 ounces mixed raw nuts
i tried to get in my protein and carbs, fruits and vegetables- it seems high in saturated fat with the cheese and nuts but i figured it all evens out and it is good fat
what do you think?
i sometimes also bring hard boiled eggs, other fruits, and when i have a fridge i try to make meals such as cold salmon and peas...
are these all healthy choices?- and is it enough? i am a 21 year old female.
Looks good to me although i'd add some more protein to each meal.I noticed you eat alot of Oatmeal as i do sometimes my self.Sometimes i'll eat it 3 times a day but i add 2 scoops of ''Dutch chocolate'' Whey protein powder and Olive oil to it so its a complete meal.(protein,carb,fat) later !!
To surpass the 120 yr Life Span !!!!
I agree about more protein. More variety would be good, too. (Everyone I know, no matter what their nutritional philosophy, agrees that getting nutrients from various sources is best.) So maybe whole grain crackers (rye or rice are widely available and not terribly expensive) with peanut butter for some meals.
There are not many vegetables in your plan. Vegetables provide so many nutrients you don't get elsewhere in significant quantities (fruits, in general, don't even come close).
Hey there, I think you've done a very good job with the fibre/healthy fats/good carbs... BUT you have no protein. You need to include protein with every meal (ie: chicken, turkey, tuna, lean beef, egg whites, beans, cottage cheese, seafood) in order to make it a "balanced" diet. Nuts & cheese dont contain enough protein to make it worthwhile, but the nuts are good for omega fats, just watch the consumption as these are high in calories.
Lower glycemic fruits such as apples, pears, oranges and grapefruit will keep you fuller longer and not raise your insulin levels too much like Bananas do. More veggies and protein... you're set!
