Hey MFP’s! I’m not sure if it’s this whole Corona pandemic. But working in a hospital, it’s making it really difficult to eat better. It’s basically grab what you can and go. Any advice would be fantastic! Thank you 😊

    @gmedina1285 I try to food prep as much as possible in advance. That way all of my food is MFP counted ahead of time. If you can, buy a couple of frozen ice packs and take your meals to go in a small portable cooler (lunch box size). This has helped me so much not eating take out or junk food/snacks

    Ditto on all of the above. And maybe add really good protein bars to keep handy as snacks/meals if needed as grab and go food. And stay safe! Kudos for being one on the front line!

    I pack my meal and snacks and take limited cash/bank cards so I can't turn to takeout and vending machine food. Taking limited cash/cards forces me to eat the food I bring.

    Examples of food I pack:
    Greek yogurt
    fruit (apples, blueberries, banana)
    low sodium soup
    Instant oatmeal -- This is often my dinner. I like plain oatmeal and add an apple or blueberries. It's filling and ready to eat after microwaving 90 seconds. It takes only a few minutes to eat.

    First of all, THANK YOU for your commitment to your job and helping to keep us healthy and safe! Things must be crazy for you now so I’d recommend just packing things that are easy to eat on the go. Protein bars, protein shakes, cut up fruit/veggies, nuts, etc.
