The other day in one of our live calls, Rock Your Life member Shakara D. mentioned how tough it was to stay on track with her nutrition while she and her family were in the middle of moving into a new home.
As someone who has moved quite a few times myself, I could totally relate to what she was saying, and so could lots of other Rockstars.
So I set out to write down all of my top resources in one place because….
…it’s not just moving that knocks us off our game.
Think business travel…busy seasons…re-adjusting to school schedules…
….there are so many things that can throw a wrench in even our best-laid eating plans.
That’s why I created this Healthy Eating Shortcuts Guide, full of super-handy, super-helpful time-saving tips, tools and shortcuts for keeping your nutrition game strong when life starts throwing you curve balls.
Please add to it in the comments below, and share this post – I’d love to learn your resources and ideas too!
Healthy Shortcuts for Food Delivery
When life gets extra hectic, it can be incredibly helpful to take advantage of home delivery services that will bring food right to your door. Here are some of my favorite shortcuts for food delivery.
Nationwide Meal Delivery: Trifecta
Too busy to cook? Get organic healthy meals delivered from Trifecta! I know you see me doing my food prep on the weekend in my instagram stories, and you know that healthy eating is one of my top priorities – but sometimes things get so busy, even I need help with eating whole food meals.
Trifecta has so many different options to choose from, and I think it’s worth checking out to see for yourself if you’ve ever thought about trying a meal service.
Local Food Delivery: InstaCart
Save your time for what you *want* to do by getting your groceries delivered to you the very same day you order them by a friendly InstaCart shopper! I use this service about once a month, and I’m always glad to have it as a backup.
Grass-Fed Meats: Butcher Box
I’m always on the hunt for the best QUALITY for the best VALUE. This is my #1 go-to for getting both. This is a great company that treats their customers right.

Healthy Seafood: Vital Choice
I’m such a fan of high quality seafood. Sometimes it’s hard to get a good deal on the best quality depending on where you live. I invite you to check these guys out, this is where I’ve been getting mine. They made a special deal for my readers actually.

Healthy Shortcuts for Protein Bars
When time allows, I love making my own healthy protein snacks like Gluten-free Pumpkin Muffins or Superfood Chocolate Protein Energy Bars. But when that’s not an easy option, these pre-packaged protein bars offer smart, delicious alternatives.
Core Meal Whey Bars
Best Protein Powders
Protein powder is an easy, convenient way to get an extra serving of protein – especially if you’re on the go or out of time to cook.
Four Sigmatic Superfood Protein
A 100% organic blend of pea, hemp, chia, pumpkin and coconut this 100% plant-based, highly-digestible, and complete protein powder is unflavored – contains no sweeteners and has 18 grams of protein per serving. Plus they offer it in individual packets for easy, on-the-go goodness. I also love the addition of mushrooms and adaptogenic herbs, something Four Sigmatic is known for.
Whole Betty Berry Green Protein
100% certified organic, Berry Green Protein is a delicious plant-based vanilla strawberry blend that has 18g of highly absorbable protein per serving. It also has an impressive array of organic ingredients including barley grass, wheat grass, spirulina, chlorella, spinach, kale, tomatoes, carrots, beets, parsley, apple, blueberry, cranberry and raspberry.
If you are following a healthy lifestyle, seeking support for sustained energy, mental clarity and overall well-being, it is a convenient, delicious and powerful nutrient-dense option for you!
Nutiva Hemp Protein
Naked Nutrition Egg White Protein
I personally think it’s important to get a variety of protein sources, so this is one I keep in the mix on occasion and use in baking. I don’t use it as a staple since I prefer to just eat whole eggs in their natural form, and usually opt for a collagen and a plant-based protein as my main 2 staples.
But when it comes to absorbable, quality protein, egg white is right at the top. I often use it for baking when I’m making protein pancakes or muffins. It’s non-GMO, the egg whites are from US farms, has no additives, is Paleo, dairy free, gluten free and soy free
Protein Travel Packs
Pro Tip: Measure servings of your protein of choice into Ziploc bags, then store the bags in your shaker cup. Makes for a super-portable, super-convenient protein snack no matter where you go – just add water!
Portable Juice Powder
Here are my favorite powders to boost my nutrient intake when I can’t get fresh produce.

Jilz Gluten Free Crackers
Sprout Organic Baby Food Packets
