Health and the Writer by Camy Tang

Whether you’re a writer who also works a full-time job or are a busy stay-at-home-mom, it’s hard to stay healthy. I researched and figured out a bunch of tips and tricks to help me stay in shape without carving out of my precious writing time. I also found some tips to help me have just general better health. Pick and choose which of these will work for you.

Eating vegetables

I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time getting excited about fresh fruits and vegetables when I’m in a hurry and don’t have the time to wash and slice. A good alternative is frozen fruits and veggies.

You can often use frozen fruits and vegetables straight from the bag without thawing.

Thawed fruit with yogurt and Splenda or honey is a great snack. Or make a smoothie with ice, milk, yogurt and fruit.

Frozen veggies are great when cooking because I just use what I need and put the rest back in the freezer.

Frozen veggies last about 6 months in the freezer and take up minimal room.

Canned veggies and fruits (the kind stored in water, not oil or syrup) are also good, quick alternatives to fresh. They can be heated up quickly in the microwave or tossed in a salad.
