With Hurricane Sandy hitting the East Coast I hope you all are safe and the worse you and your family experienced were power outages.
If you did experience power outages a lot of your healthy food is likely to go bad in your fridge. I do not want you all to think of this as an excuse to fall off your healthy eating plan.
I am here to encourage you to always stick to the plan and am providing you with healthy meal ideas that do not require perishable food.
1. Protein Shakes. Whether its whey, casein or rice protein powder, most people following a healthy diet will have this in their home. Power or no power if you have water, you have no excuse to not get in a good source of Protein. Pair your protein shake with an apple and you have a complete meal.
2. Tuna and Crackers. As long as you have a manual can opener or a knife this should be an easy meal that you do not have to worry about going bad. Use mustard in place of mayonnaise and eat your tuna with crackers such as Wheat Thins.
3. Soups/Chili. If you took the newscasters advice you probably ran out and purchased a slew of canned goods. Prepare one of the low sodium or organic soups or chili you bought. Chili normally has a good amount of protein in it and the beans serve as a good carb source.
Let me know what healthy meals you all came up with while braving Hurricane Sandy. Stay safe!
