By Michaela Feltman/Bloomberg via Getty ImagesIn a perfect world, your meals should include protein, carbs and fiber, but it can be hard to keep track of which ones you have and which ones aren’t.
The best way to stay on track is to take a look at which foods you need for a healthy and active lifestyle and which you can skip without compromising your nutrition.
Here are three ways to get started.
Eat a few small, easy-to-prepare meals that you can cook on the go.
If you’re looking for a protein-rich meal with a low carb content, try an egg white scramble with oatmeal and spinach.
It’s a perfect way to get the most bang for your buck.
Or if you’re trying to add in a few more carbs, try a protein shake with nuts and seeds, such as a peanut butter and chocolate almond shake.
Or try an easy-bake oatmeal with some brown rice and coconut milk.
These are good options for those who want a protein and carb-rich dinner.
For those looking to cut down on their calorie intake, try one of the many recipes below.
For a high-protein, low-carb meal, try adding in veggies or fruits.
If all you want is a healthy, high-fiber meal, skip the whole grains and stick with a plant-based protein like lentils, chickpeas, tofu or tempeh.
If your goal is to add more protein to your diet, try incorporating some protein into the meal.
If you don’t have a problem with a lot of carbs, add in some protein from your favorite protein bars.
To add in fiber, make a smoothie with water, fruit and berries, or a smoothy with almond milk, berries, pumpkin seeds or chia seeds.

How to eat breakfast at home to stay healthy:Read moreI used to have a hard time counting how many calories I was eating on a daily basis.
I’d have breakfast, eat a quick breakfast and then eat the rest of the day.
But I think the key is to have breakfast as a fun and relaxed time.
I like to cook a quick lunch and eat a bowl of cereal while listening to music on the bus.
I’m also always mindful of my water consumption, because I don’t want to miss a single sip.
I’m also not afraid to take breaks to make sure I’m eating well.
I do this on the weekends when I have the time.
On my weekly routine, I have breakfast at 6 a.m., lunch at 7:30 a.p. and dinner at 8 p.m.
I try to make breakfast the most nutritious meal possible, so I don, too.
If I can eat a healthy breakfast, I can get a good night’s sleep.
A good night sleep means you’ll feel rested and feel good for the rest at the end of the night.
