August is Tradies National Health Month and one of the things we often hear from Tradies in the clinic is that eating on the go is a challenge. Here are my tips to make meal times at work less stressful.
Tip 1 – Plan what you will eat:
✔ Make a list of meals, snacks and drinks you may need, ideally prior to doing your weekly shopping.
✔ If it helps you, make a basic weekly guide so you know what you’ll be eating each day.
Tip 2 – Prepare what you will eat:
✔ Pre-cook healthy meals and store in airtight containers. Examples of suitable options include:
▪ stir frys
▪ pasta salads
▪ bean/lentil salads
✔ Pre-cooked food should be refrigerated and be eaten within 2-3 days.
