Thinking of nutrition, fruits, and vegetables come to mind. You can serve them in large amounts and add small portions of meat. I am sure you have noticed in some stores that there may be a limit to the packages of meat per household you can purchase. Since we can only purchase 2 packages of meat per household, meat portions are smaller, and this will save money and help keep our dietary saturated fat in check.
If at all possible, fill up on fiber. Not only will fiber keep you regular, but it aids in having a healthy weight. Also, consider a snack that is rich with fiber and protein, like yogurt. This healthy snack aids in protecting your immune system and has healthy gut bacteria.
Items to stock up on for nutrition that will stay fresh for weeks:
· Bread: wraps, bagels
· Fruits: Apples, oranges, canned fruits
· Eggs: egg whites, fresh eggs
· Cheese: sliced, cubed
· Nuts and seeds: bagged, canned
· Milk: fresh, canned
· Soups: canned, frozen
· Grains: brown rice, instant oatmeal
Most importantly, please stay hydrated! Good hydration helps your cells function and your body eliminates waste, which enables your immune system to work better. Also, good hydration prevents muscle fatigue, aids in digestion, and boosts your mood.
