Want to make eating healthy easier? Plan your meals ahead of time. It’ll save you time and money. Each Friday, I decide what I’ll want for the next week. That same day, I go out and buy the things I need. On Saturday I start prepping by chopping up veggies and whatever else can be done ahead. On Sunday, I cook a lot of chicken with a simple seasoning that can go with anything. I dice the chicken up to add in salads or wraps throughout the week. I’ll also make soups if they’re on my menu for the upcoming week(s). The soup gets pre-portioned out and thrown into my freezer. The day before I have the soup, I lower it to the refrigerator to thaw. Then an hour or half hour before I’m due to eat, I reheat it. So easy. There’s not much better than being able to eat a healthy, home cooked meal with little effort. I know, Sundays will be hectic, but it’s only one day. It pays off because you have no excuse to go out and eat junk throughout the week. Plus, if you have children or a significant other, you can make it a family affair.
Remember, do whatever it takes to make this lifestyle as simple as possible. You will be challenged every day with life in general, there is no need to add to that. Also, the freezer is your friend. You can store precooked meals or pre-chopped veggies with little to no effect on the quality and/or taste. Be your own key to success by planning and being organized.
