Denver Movers Share How to Eat Right When Moving

When you’re in the middle of coordinating schedules with your Denver moving company and packing up your home, the last thing on your mind is eating right. After all, it’s far easier to stop by a fast food joint on the way home from work or heat a pack of instant ramen in the microwave while you continue packing boxes. However, eating poorly during such a stressful time is not only unhealthy. It can also take a major toll on your body. Instead of reaching for junk food, it’s best to try and eat as healthily as possible. Here are a few simple tips to make eating right while moving as easy as possible.

Prepare Meals Ahead of Time

As soon as you know you’re moving, start coming up with a menu of your favorite healthy meals. Make them the week before you start packing up in earnest and stick them in the freezer. This way, all the prep work is already done, and all you need to do is pop the food in the microwave. During packing week, you’ll be able to enjoy the convenience of pre-made dinners without suffering the effects of eating those high-calorie TV dinners you’d otherwise rely on.

Buy the Right Snacks

When you’re busy, it’s easy to grab the first snack you find to help you get through the day. To keep temptation for junk food away, stock up on healthy snacks. Keep protein-packed items like nuts, cheese, and seeds on hand. If you’re craving something sweet, opt for fruit instead of candy. By keeping junk food out of the house and only having healthy fruits, vegetables, and protein-rich snacks on hand, you’ll set yourself up for success easily.

Skip the Soda

Staying hydrated is one of the most important things you can do when you’re stressed and worrying about packing up the house. While soda may give you an initial burst of energy, it can actually leave you dehydrated and drained in a matter of hours. Instead of reaching for a cola, keep plenty of water on hand. Stock up on water bottles and keep them in the fridge or refill reusable bottles throughout the day. If you crave carbonation more than sugar, consider drinking seltzer water instead of soda. This way, you’ll stay hydrated while also satisfying the craving for a bit of fizz.

Be Smart Eating Out

There will be a day or two when you’re too tired to wash the dishes, and that’s okay. If you’re planning on eating out, try to make smart decisions that won’t leave you weighed down by the food. If you get a burger, swap the fries for a side of broccoli or a salad. Skip dessert and satisfy your craving for sweets at home with fresh fruit.

Moving and staying healthy doesn’t have to be a challenge. Follow these tips, and you’ll be set for moving week without relying on convenience foods.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
