There are ways you can make something as simple as shopping at the grocery store and cooking your meals easier and faster so it doesn’t seem something is made unattainable by your hectic schedule.

Tips for Saving Time at the Grocery
Going to the grocery store can be time-consuming, but making a list can help with getting out quickly.

Yes, a list may seem tedious but it’s been proven to be the best way to manage your time effectively in the store, getting what you need, and cutting down on trying to figure out things at the moment or on the fly. You should try to:

  • Keep a running grocery list - Keep an ongoing list on your refrigerator at home. That way, you can add things to the list as you realize you’re out of them and don’t have to worry about remembering them later. Simply take the list with you when you’re ready to go.
  • Get organized - Once you have your list, you should try to organize it. If you can put the items in the order that you usually tackle the grocery store, then you’ll effectively cut down on time going back and forth in the store and get out faster.
  • Not go hungry - Go after you’ve at least had a snack, if not a whole meal. This will prevent buying unnecessary things.  

Fast, Healthy Meals at Home
There are many different meals that can be made that won’t be time-consuming. Some that you can consider are: 
  • A sauté of vegetables over brown rice
  • Cooked couscous or rice topped with pine nuts, shredded carrots, and diced tomatoes with a dash of balsamic vinegar
  • Reduced sodium black bean soup mixed with diced peppers, cilantro, and corn
  • Baked potatoes with Greek yogurt, chives, vegetables, chili, or sauteed onions

Remember, being healthy doesn’t have to be time-consuming. If you have the ingredients on hand, then you can easily throw something together that’s both nutritious and delicious.
