The one question we all dread...
I know you can relate to this dreaded question.
Because it’s about … drumroll …
“What’s for dinner?”
The answer is a never-ending nightly struggle, am I right?!
We make so many decisions every day - and by the time dinner rolls around - it’s like an endless loop trying to figure out what to eat.
Lately I found myself standing in front of the fridge trying to figure out what to make.
It wasn’t like I didn’t have any food on hand. I’d even gone grocery shopping over the weekend and stocked up on healthy food.
But everything required work – and time. It involved COOKING.
And honestly, I felt so tired and stressed out by the whole thing.
I just didn’t feel like making anything.
Sometimes that led to eating out, takeout, or throwing together meat and vegetables. And these things are not bad, they just aren't ideal.
Can you relate?
Being stuck in that cycle is the WORST … because it’s way too easy to click that Uber Eats button on your phone.
Sometimes you’re not even sure you WANT to break out of it because it does make your life a little easier.
But when you look at the big picture…
● You end up consuming WAY more calories than you wanted to,
● There’s likely a lot more sodium (and other unwanted ingredients) in your food,
● And it’s not nearly as nutritious as if you were to make it yourself.
Here are three things I did to break out of the loop:
1. I got over the blame game with myself and analyzed why my “meal prep” wasn't working.
I always had good intentions of spending time prepping on the weekends - but the fact was, it wasn’t always happening.
2. Spending time “batch cooking." Easy meals only.
Last Sunday I ordered groceries (which cost me $1) and had them delivered (which was free).
This past Monday (which you may have seen my LIVE broadcasts), I made 3 easy meals.
1. Crockpot Pot Roast
2. Crockpot White Chicken Chili
3. Healthy Sloppy Joes
This meant we could easily mix-and-match meals for the week (for lunch and dinner).
Because I had a plan, it was SO fast, SO easy, and NOT dreadful. I swear!
3. Here’s where the magic happened! I noticed the link between how I felt (and my results) when I ate home-cooked meals vs. winging it or eating out.
I have more energy, my stomach felt SO MUCH BETTER, and I even had more body confidence.
Being on track AND saving $$$ is priceless -- and EASY!
