How to Eat Healthy When I Don’t Have Time to Cook

My life has been crazy busy lately with my work schedule and wedding planning and I have not been able to work on the blog as much as I would like. I thought this would be a great opportunity to share how I eat healthy when I don’t have time to cook whenever I would like. I’m going to share what my routine has been like the past couple of months and how I have stayed on track without the extra time to whip up creative, healthy dishes.

One thing to note is that I do NOT miss out on unhealthy food splurging. There have been multiple birthdays or other celebrations and other weekly unhealthy lunches and/or dinners. I try to eat healthy 75 – 80% of the time and it has been working for me. (Side note, I have also been exercising about 3 – 4 days per week because I have a sedentary job and I need to get up and move at some point.)

Eating healthy doesn’t have to be creative. If time permits, it helps to be creative so eating healthy doesn’t get boring and bland over time, but that’s not always possible. I’m going to share my breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert go-to options. This is what I’ve been doing to make sure I fit into my wedding dress in May! (more…)

Poached Salmon

There are a few ways to cook salmon – baking and poaching being two popular methods. I like baked salmon if I marinate it or use a sauce topping but poached salmon is great for using seasonings such as lemon pepper, one of my favorites.

The first time I had poached salmon was actually at Sam’s Club. They were having samples of lemon pepper poached salmon and I loved it. My parents asked them how the salmon was cooked and we were amazed that it was seasoned on top and cooked in water – that’s it! I don’t think my parents have ever made salmon any other way!

Smoked Salmon and Scrambled Egg Toast

Are you a sweet or savory breakfast kind of person? I eat a sweet breakfast almost every day – why not start each day with a healthy sweet breakfast, like yogurt or oatmeal, and pretend I’m eating dessert first thing in the morning? 🙂 But sometimes I just need something savory!
