Eating healthy is hard enough when you’re at home—with a stocked pantry, full refrigerator, and set of appliances at your disposable.

But sticking to your diet is even harder when you’re out of the house!

Whether you’re at work, out running errands, or on a day trip with your family, you’re sure to encounter serious cravings (and lots of opportunities to cheat!). Maybe fast food restaurants are your downfall...or the tray of birthday cupcakes in the break room...or your kiddo’s half-eaten bag of chips.

Regardless, maintaining healthy eating habits when you’re on-the-go is really challenging.

So, how can you eat clean...without becoming a hermit?

Here’s the secret: preparation. Trust us...it’s a lot easier to say no to a Chinese takeout lunch when you already have a delicious lunch waiting for you in the fridge.
