Eating healthy isn’t always easy to do when you’re a teacher. You don’t feel like cooking after a long day of teaching, so you grab fast food on the way home. You have only 20 minutes to eat lunch, so you grab a candy bar. At night before bed, you’re stressed thinking about all the things you have to do the next day, so you grab a bag of chips as a snack, and, before you know it, the whole bag is gone. Use these tips for creating healthy eating habits as a teacher.
