Convenience drives the meal choices of the majority of American consumers who are working harder than ever and having less time for themselves, according to NPD Research. Statistics show that time is becoming an ever bigger problem at the lunch hour, compared to a decade ago. Even those consumers who can get away form their desks for a lunch break, don’t go far â€" either eating at their workplace dining facility, picking up fast food nearby or having food delivered to the office.

Time Consumers: Too busy to ponder where the time goes, consumers eat what, when and where is most convenient

Dr. Diet weighs in:

The findings in this article are what I see every day in my practice: time starved individuals who want to eat healthier but have time limitations that must also be taken into consideration.

The truth is that much of my diet counseling has to do with helping my patients learn convenient ways to quickly assemble healthy meals and snacks.

And because foods made at home are often healthier (more fiber, less calories) than foods eaten out, I encourage my patients to fill up their grocery carts with healthy, convenient food items that can be quickly assembled into healthy meals or snacks.

It’s also important to prioritize healthy eating into your life. What this means is that you’ll make the time needed to grocery shop, cut up and prepare fresh fruits and veggies so they’re easy to grab and eat, bring some lunches to work rather than always ordering out and find 5 or 6 simple healthy meals that you can prepare and rotate without spending hours in the kitchen. Here are some ideas:

--Light tuna melts and canned vegetable soup

--Pasta dinner with ready made spaghetti sauce and ground Boca meat and salad

--Rotisserie chicken with roasted broccoli and salad

--Entrée salad with grilled salmon on top

--Vegetarian pizza using ready made pizza crust topped with veggies, grilled chicken and low fat mozzarella cheese and salad

--Veggie burger (frozen) with homemade cole slaw (using shredded cabbage in bags and light vinaigrette dressing) and roasted potatoes
