Healthy Snacks for Busy Moms

By | Weight Loss | One Comment

Being a mom is a busy enough job as it is, but when you add a working life and career to the mix, things can start to get hectic indeed.  With so much to do, it can be tough going to keep everyone in the family fueled up with nutritious foods.

Cutting corners to save time on food preparation can often involve making convenient but unhealthy snack choices, but it doesn’t have to be that way. We’re here to tell you that convenient doesn’t have to mean unhealthy or even time-consuming. Use these five super healthy snacks on the go ideas to keep you and your family charged up for the whole day.

Trail Mix

A well-proportioned trail mix is one of those easy, healthy snacks which provides lasting energy and even gives you an excellent excuse to indulge in a little bit of dark chocolate as well. Dark chocolate and its antioxidants make great combinations when thrown into a trail mix with healthy portions of fiber and protein. You will have a well-balanced snack for a slow-burn of energy that will keep everyone perked up for a most of the day.

You can use your imagination but here’s a mix you can use as a starting point. Combine almonds, dried cherries, and dark chocolate chips (or M & Ms). Add a pinch of cinnamon and dash of sea salt. Other nuts are good too depending on what you like, so experiment with cashews, brazil nuts (good for selenium), dried fruits – dried mango is sweet and delicious – coconut flakes and banana chips.

Remember, a trail mix is packed full of energy, so a small handful is all you need to top up the fuel tank.

Snack Sized Bags of Healthy Cereals

There are plenty of cereals available which are healthy options for breakfast but throw some into a snack sized bag, and you have any number of easy, healthy snacks ready to go at a moment’s notice. Choose cereals which are high in vitamins, minerals, folic acid, and low in sugar. Whole grain foods will provide the most health benefits, while also giving you that much needed slow release of energy.

Savory Muffins

Sometimes you want something that’s savory instead of sweet. In these situations, a savory muffin is an easy snack everybody can enjoy at any time of the day without adding any unnecessary calories. Plus, the kids will love them as well.  Zucchini muffins are a favorite recipe you can easily find online, but there are plenty of variations you can try to find a taste that’s right for you.

Rice Cakes and Topping

Rice cakes are an easy option that is completely fat-free, and low in calories. They are little weak in the vitamins and minerals department but that’s where the toppings come in, and your imagination is the only limit. Try combinations of avocado, chicken, cream cheese, pesto, or tomato with a sprinkle of basil. Peanut or almond butter also goes well with bananas or strawberries, or both.

Air Popped Popcorn

The popcorn you get at the cinemas is junk food covered in unhealthy fats, and the microwave popcorn isn’t much better, but if you make your own popcorn in a hot air popper then you have yourself a healthy snack.

Plain air-popped popcorn can be a little bland, but you do have some flavoring options. Sprinkle a little olive oil with Parmesan cheese for a savory delight or add a dash of chili and some sea salt for a bit of spice.

With just a few simple ingredients and a couple of spare minutes, every busy mom will have plenty of healthy snacks on the go options ready to pop into lunch boxes quick as a flash.

Simple Habits of Healthy People

By | Weight Loss | No Comments

The health and wellness industry would have you believe that losing weight and getting fit is a complicated process requiring the latest and greatest magic lotion or complicated smoothie. In truth, good health comes down to a few simple tweaks you can incorporate into your lifestyle which becomes natural daily habits over time. 

Here are five healthy habits you can do which will help you lead a healthier and happier life:

Eat a Healthy Breakfast

Our busy lifestyle sees many of us rushing out the door without a healthy breakfast to start the day, and we end up making do with a coffee and a donut as we rush to the office. It’s hardly the breakfast of champions and is not the best strategy for getting through a busy day with a clear mind. 

Lack of time is not an excuse as a bowl of nutritious oatmeal with some fresh fruit takes minutes to prepare, and the same goes for a poached egg and a slice of wholemeal toast. Plus, you’ll undoubtedly notice the difference in energy levels and your clarity of mind.

Get an Active Hobby

Slogging it out with the weights at the gym or grinding out a few miles on the treadmill isn’t everybody’s cup of tea. Fortunately, there are plenty of other options for maintaining optimum levels of fitness. 

Indoor rock climbing puts your entire body through its paces, and a spot of tennis will get the heart pumping while you burn off a few extra calories. You could also try getting back to nature and take a hike with a friend through some of the local national parks.   

Many sporting clubs offer indoor sports such as soccer. They are a favorite way of getting some much-needed exercise while also providing the opportunity to meet new people and make some friends. 

Use your imagination for finding an active hobby which you can enjoy as there are more options than can be listed here. Don’t forget you can also take your pick from yoga, jogging, boxing, and martial arts. Even a spot of vigorous gardening a few times a week will have a dramatic impact on your health and fitness levels.  

Drink Water and Avoid Soda

Your body needs 2 to 3 liters of water every day to function correctly so make sure you keep yourself well hydrated throughout the day. 

Avoiding soda is also an excellent idea as these sugary water drinks are full of empty calories. Even getting rid of the soda drink from the dinner table every night can do good things for reducing your weekly calorie intake. 

Positive Friends

Health and fitness aren’t all about body weight and how fast you can run, as your mental health also plays a big part in how you feel every day. Human beings are social animals and being alone for extended lengths of time isn’t good for our health. We all need a circle of friends who are positive, uplifting and are supportive of our goals. 

Regularly engage with your circle of friends by going out to lunch, having a games night, or enjoy an afternoon barbecue at the park. And no, social media doesn’t count because you need face-to-face time if your social life is going to have any impact on your health. 

Take 10K Steps a Day

Even the cheapest fitness trackers have a step-counting feature. Make it your goal to take at least 10,000 steps or more every day. Take the stairs instead of the elevator, and park further away than usual from the office every morning. 

If time permits, instead of emailing or messaging your co-workers get out of your chair and walk over to their cubicle or office. If you still come up short by home-time, do a couple of laps around the block. 

You don’t have to be a fitness fanatic to enjoy a healthy lifestyle, nor do you have to sacrifice hours out of every day at the gym. By incorporating a few simple habits such as the ones discussed above, you can dramatically improve your health, fitness, and outlook on life.

Preparing to Lose Weight

By | Weight Loss | No Comments

Taking on and changing lifelong habits can be tough, especially when it comes to losing weight. A significant part of building your levels of motivation for weight loss involves laying the groundwork and taking note of what successful weight loss means to you. 

At Truvision Weight Loss we want you to succeed and have prepared this quick guide on the best ways to prepare. 

TruVision Weight Loss Before and After Photos

Before your weight loss journey begins, it’s a great idea to take a photo of how you look now. As you shed the pounds, you can regularly refer to the image and congratulate yourself on how far you have come. 

The best way to take a photo of yourself is to get someone else to do it for you, but it doesn’t have to be a professional photographer. If your only option is to use a mirror, then make sure you hold the camera off to the side, so the flash doesn’t flood the image, and you don’t block your face. 

Another good tip for a mirror shot is to not look at your reflection, but instead, focus your gaze on the lens of the camera just like you would if someone else was taking the shot. 

Good lighting is essential for a before photo, and make sure you aren’t in front of a distracting background – a plain wall is ideal. 

The attire you wear for your photo is also essential. A loose-fitting gown will hide how well your efforts are paying off. Instead, go for a swimsuit or form hugging outfit for best results – active wear or gym clothes would be perfect. 

Some people are tempted to photograph themselves in their underwear, but this may make you feel uncomfortable if your photo is going to be publicly viewed by anybody other than close family. 

One photo is not enough. You will want to record your journey with regular snaps of your progress. For a more accurate picture of your progress, always take the photo under the same conditions as your first image. 

TruVision Weight Loss Before and After Body Measurements 

A cheap tape measure from the craft store is all you will need for accurate body measurements. The best time to take your measurements is in the morning, as your body shape changes slightly during the day. 

Taking measurements at the same time each day will ensure consistency in the measurements, and you will gain a deeper understanding of what is and isn’t working for you. 

Join a Success Group

Weight loss can be tough when you’re going it alone. However, while you are in it for yourself, you don’t have to do it by yourself. Success groups are a terrific way to share your trials and tribulations and find motivation in others’ success.

You can find support in a group in many ways including hints and tips, exercise ideas, dieting strategies, encouragement, and all while keeping yourself accountable. 

Clear out the Fridge and the Pantry

If you are just starting your weight loss efforts then making sure your fridge, freezer, and pantry are all free of temptations is an excellent way to begin your journey. 

Prepare Your Meal Plan

Wondering about what you have for dinner or lunch every day only adds to the struggle and leads to the temptation of taking shortcuts. Create your meal plan with delicious, healthy recipes that you know you will look forward to, and you are less likely to make a detour to the drive through on your way home from work.
