Would You Rather? Fast, Faster, Fastest Edition


Would You Rather? 💥Fast - Faster - Fastest Edition💥⠀ ⠀ I love sharing this type information to help spread the message that in flexible eating, no one choice is right or wrong. Only better or best for YOU in the moment, depending on your circumstances. ⠀ ⠀ So let’s step away from assigning foods as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ mmkay? Food is neutral and while its job is to fuel us through nutrition, we’d be kidding ourselves if we didn’t acknowledge the fact that both time and pleasure factor into our choices!⠀ ⠀ Now with that out of the way, let’s take a look at the breakdown of macros in three snacks that equate to nearly identical calories.⠀ ⠀ 🧡 Iced Cinnamon Pumpkin Cake: 178 cals/26C/2F/18P⠀ ⠀ 💛 Banana with Almond Butter + Cinnamon: 180 cals/30C/7F/4P⠀ ⠀ ❤️ Fit Crunch Bar: 190 cals/14C/8F/16P⠀ ⠀ The final piece to consider here is of course TIME - one of the biggest factors in all our decision making. ⠀ ⠀ Option 1️⃣: If you’re like me and love to meal prep, maybe the iced pumpkin cake is the fastest because you batch-made 7 for the week, and they are ready to go in your fridge 😜 If not, this is a 10 minute process, which personally I enjoy very much when I have the time. ⠀ ⠀ Plus, when given the choice, I always favor #wholefoods⠀ ⠀ Option 2️⃣: If you want fast-prepped whole foods, and can sit at the table to eat, the banana with almond butter will take 90 seconds and may be perfect!⠀ ⠀ Option 3️⃣: While not the ideal way to consume a snack, this is real life...if you’re running out the door, having something portion controlled with evenly balanced macros, is a smart option you’ll be glad to have on hand!⠀ ⠀ What type of fast snacks under 200 calories do you have on your list?? And I’m curious; is a pre-made item ‘fastest’ for anyone besides me?? 🤔
