Healthy Eating fit for an Athlete


When it comes to eating healthy, who has the time? We all want to have a healthy diet, but it just takes too much time to shop, prepare and then cook it. It is so much easier to go to the drive-thru fast food restaurant on the way home from work to grab something fast before heading off to bed after a hard day at the office. But fast food isn’t healthy at all, especially if you are an athlete. An athlete requires vitamins and minerals from the food they eat. So how do you balance lack of time with the need for a healthy diet?


One way to ensure you are eating healthy meals that are pre-made it the Nutrisystem for men way. Nutrisystem has been around for over 40 years, planning and preparing meal plans for men and women, vegetarian’s as well as special diabetic diets. The meals provided by Nutrisystem for men are pre-made, no need to count calories, they are already organized in a meal portion with the correct number of calories. They provide you breakfast, lunch and dinner meals, delivered right to your doorstep.


Ice Age Meals is a meal delivery service that is athletic approved. They cater to the “Zone-friendly” diets, by featuring minimal ingredient diets such as dairy-free, gluten-free, and non-GMO. Ice Age meals are delivered “frozen solid” to ensure a longer shelf life.


Next athlete approved meal service is “Trifecta Nutrition.” Trifecta’s meal plans always go the distance with several categories of meals: paleo, clean eating (minimal processed foods, whole grains, vegetables, and lean protein), also a vegetarian and vegan diet plan.


For those athletes who opt for variety of Paleo meals, there is the Paleo Power Meals. Paleo Power takes it’s meat seriously by providing cage-free eggs, wild-caught fish, antibiotic-free chicken, and grass-fed beef is all that makes up the main course of their meals. As an added bonus, these on-the-go meals come in their own tupperware containers.


One more Paleo meal is the “Pete’s Paleo” which offers paleo meals with extra special ingredients (whatever is being harvested that week from their farmers).


So when it comes to eating on the go, there are many choices you have that can still ensure you are eating as healthy as an athlete does. Next time you head for the fast food drive-thru, think about your computer and order some of the ready made, healthy meals that are available there. Your heart, and waist line will thank you for it.
