We all want to live a long, healthy life. However, stopping at the local fast-food restaurant is not the way to go.

Our team at AFC Urgent Care Chapman Highway knows things can get crazy and your schedule can be thrown off track at a moment’s notice. However, it is still important that you try to eat as healthy as possible no matter how busy your day might be.

Why Do I Need to Eat Healthy?

Eating healthy isn’t just about your weight. You can lower your risk of developing many medical conditions simply by fueling your body with the right nutrients throughout the day.

Conditions Healthy Eating Can Help Prevent

  • Diabetes
  • Fatigue
  • Heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • Immunodeficiencies
  • Obesity

What If I Forget to Eat Breakfast?

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

If you are guilty of skipping breakfast most mornings, try to set yourself up for success by making breakfast the night before so you can just grab and go. Or if you are not a huge breakfast eater, consider making a healthy smoothie or protein shake instead—just so you can be sure to start your day off right!
