Imagine a healthy eating program as effortless as pop tarts and mountain dew for breakfast. We all know we should eat better, but the hard part is actually doing it! I am going to give you 5 shortcuts for eating better.
If you make a plan for success, you can actually make it through this holiday season without gaining 10 pounds!
Planning is the most critical step of your diet:
1. Meals for a Month:
Try a service like Meals For a Month. They give you explicit instruction on exactly what to buy at the grocery store and exactly how to prepare it so that it’s ready when you’re ready to eat. You get all the specifics on how to spend one day cooking all day so you can store the food and be done for a month. You can find paleo, low sugar, gluten free, or vegetarian plans. It changes each month and it is good food!
2. Hire help:
Consider paying someone to do the shopping and help you cut up the food. A neighborhood high school student can probably help for $10. Trust me, the money you save on impulse buys and eating out alone will definitely pay for the help. Don’t believe me? Try it for a week!
3. Salad bar:
Many stores have salad bars and prepared food sections. Package up 10 separate meals at the store while you are not hungry. It is cheaper than eating out and you don’t have to do a thing!
Use a service like “Evolve”, a paleo personal chef in the Midwest. The food tastes great and the prices are really good. You just order a week of meals or ala cart and you’re done.
5. Meals for a week:
Spend an hour with every part of your kitchen in action! Boil eggs, roast veggies, bake meat, cook sweet potatoes, and chop veggies all at the same time. An hour of prep can make your week super easy!!
If you know that you will not prepare food, use one of the other resources. I can’t stress this enough: the cost of not eating right on your health is higher than the food. Multiple meds are expensive. Fatigue is expensive. Depression is expensive. Doctor visits are expensive. If you are eating processed foods all the time, you’re not just losing quality of life, your money is trickling out even when you don’t notice it. Take action today. Do a 2 week experiment and just pick on resource.
