Healthy Food Tips for when you’re on the go

April 30, 2015 | By Shannan Ponton

I know better than anyone that it is important to maintain a healthy diet. Diet and exercise are what I do for a living. I live my life being healthy and promoting the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. When you eat well, you feel well! What I do understand and see all the time, is that when people are pushed for time they resort to the quickest and easiest thing they can find. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the best option for them and their healthy lifestyle flies out the window. I want to change this and have put together some quick and easy food tips for when you’re a busy person on the go!


  • Egg whites (now available in a carton), spinach, mushroom omelette
  • 1 piece Multi-grain toast

Morning Tea

  • Orange
  • Low Carb Protein Bar


Fast food doesn’t have to be junk food. Try:

  • Chicken kebab on a plate (no bread)
  • No bowl burrito
  • BBQ chicken and salad
  • Grilled fish or sashimi

Afternoon Tea

My fav go anywhere, eat anytime high protein snack. A tin of tuna


It’s very important to heavily limit carbs at night. I’m a mad fan of a nightly BBQ. Stick to lean cuts of your favourite meats pork, chicken, heart smart lamb / veal. With a crisp fresh salad.


A scoop of Peters ‘no added sugar’ ice cream with diet choc sauce. A very tasty little treat that doesn’t do too much damage to you calorie intake.
