Food prep only has to be this huge production if you want it to be.
If you are like me and don’t like huge productions, or eating food that was prepared too many days ago, tackling just a few things will still set you up for success!
Since my husband usually handles dinner, which becomes lunches, I really only need to focus on the food I start my day with (because when I start it with the right foods, the rest of the day flows… when I don’t, my sugars are all over the place and as a result, my mood is too 😉)
This morning I focused on my fruits, steel cut oats with pomegranates or blueberries, and hard boiled eggs. When you pair that with bananas and other stuff that’s already good to go, you are golden.
And don’t tell me you don’t have an hour – you do 😉
If you BUY good food…
And you PREPARE good food…
You will EAT good food.
Not ALWAYS. But it will become the RULE, not the EXCEPTION. And that’s what you are going for.
If you bring in junk, that’s what you’ll eat.
Stock your home with good food, because that’s your fuel!
Here I have 5 breakfasts, because starting my day on track helps me keep the rest of the day on track! 2 servings of Farina with green apple, walnuts and cinnamon, and 3 servings of Bob’s Steel Cut Oats with Cinnamon, which I will top with blueberries!
It didn’t take long, and it was worth it!
Mmmm, meal prep is a touch more palatable when it’s dreary out… it’s easier to do when it’s not cutting into pool/beach/summer activities, I’m just saying…
Feels good to set myself up for a successful week as we enter week 2 of this new program!
