I am sure at one time or another we have all found ourselves on the drive thru line, starving, and craving some food that will provide a solution to that crazy grumbling sound in our bellies.
So, we go for something quick and fast.
It also doesn’t help that each town has at least one to two or even more fast food joints to offer some quick yet unhealthy options for us.
How do we avoid this? How can we avoid being that hungry, craving, cranky, and in a need of a fast fix person who has lost all control for healthy determination?

Well, it is much simpler than you’d think.
The real fast food, before corporations built these multi-million dollar unhealthy options for us, was good old-fashioned fruits and veggies.
Fruits and veggies should always be the number one option, and they are sold everywhere we turn as well, although they don’t usually have a drive thru.
I am going to share with you my secrets for avoiding the drive thu in this post – one is a method of packing snacks that you will have heard before.
But what you won’t have heard is how I pack healthy filling meals that only take me a couple of minutes to prepare each evening. So make sure you keep reading to the end of this post to discover my secret.
Healthy Portable Snacks
So, if it is about convenience then we need to prepare ahead of time. If we pack snacks and quick foods to go in our purse or briefcase then we will always have a fast food option that aligns with having a healthy determination.
Trail mix is my favorite go-to snack when I’m on the go.
It is always there and it doesn’t fail me.
It also quick to prepare and if I make a bunch of it I can take little servings for a couple days so it lasts.
The best way to avoid fast food joints while on the go is to always make sure you have a fast food option in your purse.
Healthy Portable Meals (2 minutes to make)
And if you want to go one step further and actually pack yourself a healthy meal you can take out of the house with you, I have the perfect solution for you…
And I promise it won’t take more than 2 minutes of your time to prepare this – so you have no excuse after reading this!
The healthy, on the go portable fast food that I suggest you take with you is called a Green Thickie.
A Green Thickie? What on earth is that?
It is a healthy complete meal smoothie containing all the nutrients you need in one meal including protein to fill you up, a healthy filler to keep your cravings away, greens to give you energy and fruit to make your skin glow.
And I promise you, you can make one of these in as little as a couple of minutes especially if you use frozen fruit. Just throw the ingredients into your blender in the evening, pour into travel cups like these, and grab it in the morning and drink it on the go.
I advise my busy clients to drink one Green Thickie for breakfast and another for lunch and when you have both of your meals packed for the day, plus some healthy snacks – you have no excuse to eat junk food.
Do you want to know the best thing of all about Green Thickies?
They are a great way to lose weight. Just drink one Green Thickie for breakfast, another for lunch and have a healthy calorie counted meal for dinner and watch the weight drop off and your energy soar.
If you are new to green smoothies, I suggest you start with my FREE 12 day e-course that not only teaches you how to make a Green Thickie, but also how to lose weight by drinking them.
Have a great day

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
