This week has already turned out to be super busy.
I was working on a blog assignment yesterday when I got called to some free studio space an hour away for some photography work. I jumped on the chance and organized all the things I needed to take and was spontaneously gone for about 5 hours. When I got back home I was starving, exhausted, and still had so much work to do before falling asleep. Today is about the same (minus spontaneous photoshoots unless they come my way!!) with a to-do list a mile long for house stuff, a TON of blog work to catch up on, photography emails, workout classes, meal prepping…OOPHHF.
Y’all while I love having a crazy busy schedule I don’t love feeling like I’m not putting forth good judgement with those last minute food options (especially when paying for a gym membership). I’m a lover of cooking and most mornings/nights I am able to actually cook a full meal and enjoy it – but then days like yesterday pop up and I’m left too exhausted or too rushed to cook something when I get home OR before I run out the door. For that reason I always keep a few frozen meals on hand that I know will help fuel/re-fuel me. The more I educate myself the more I appreciate when companies actually put forth real effort into making those frozen meal choices healthier and more satisfying! The Healthy Choice® Power Bowls are made with an intentional combination of bold flavors and simple ingredients; they are balanced full of vegetables, proteins, and whole grains so all bases are covered. I also just found out that they now intentionally create their meals with antibiotic free chicken and all natural USDA choice beef – hallelujah hands all around.
Speaking of crazy busy schedules; do you know what I have been intentionally trying to focus on the last few weeks?
HYDRATION. I posted about it a while back with how I’m drinking a big glass of water in the morning – but what about when I’m on the run?! I always have a water bottle with me – but I feel like I plow through those and don’t always focus on how much I’m actually drinking. Enter smartwater; vapor-distilled for purity, inspired by the clouds (hello beautiful clouds!) and my favorite part, full of electrolytes for a uniquely clean taste. No only will the water help hydrate but with those electrolytes it helps me to keep wanting to drink the water because they can make you a little more thirsty = MORE HYDRATION!
What are some of your go-to quick meals when you’re feeling the time crunch?
Also, how are you doing on your hydration game, seriously??
I grab my Healthy Choice Power Bowls & smartwater when I hit up Walmart on the weekend for other essentials.
What are some of your favorite grabs from Walmart??
