This month I am focusing on keeping things SIMPLE to help you stay on track with your goals in 2022. Today I want to talk about your MEALS … because a lot of times we’re led to believe that the more complicated and “fancy” our nutrition is, the better.
Here’s one GREAT way to keep it simple: Come up with a “food formula” that works for you, that includes meals that you love, are simple and easy to throw together, and align with your health & wellness goals.
And simply rotate meals that follow that formula throughout the week!
You do NOT have to reinvent gourmet meals every time you sit down to eat … or constantly come up with new ideas every day.
Having a go-to formula works in several different ways:
- It simplifies your shopping and food prep.
- It removes “decision fatigue,” which can happen when you’re forced to make choices all day long. The more decisions you make, the harder it becomes to make good ones!
- It helps stop that overwhelmed feeling you can get when you’re wondering whether your choices are “right” or “wrong” or “good” or “bad.”
- It saves you time and energy and can actually help you stay on track.
This works whether you’re prepping meals for yourself or a houseful of picky eaters.
Personally, it’s SUCH a relief NOT to have the “what’s for dinner” question hanging over my head every day.
Do you have a list of go-to recipes that you eat on a regular basis?
What are some of your favorites?
Hope this helps make your meal planning a little easier!
A few years ago I remember seeing a chart of “burpee equivalents” for food. Do you remember it? A cookie = 141 burpees, a small meatball sub = 402 burpees, a Big Mac = 506 burpees…
Do you love “hacks” when it comes to fitness and health? I know I do! Well, these fruits and veggies below can help power up your workouts and recovery in a big way …And I bet the next time you see them in the grocery store, you’ll look at them in a whole new light!
Shocking stat! Only 1 out of every 10 people eat enough of this food group … Even though these foods help keep your heart healthy … your skin glowing … your energy high … your hormones balanced … and your tummy happy.
Raise your hand if you love a “how am I doing?” quiz. (I know I love them!) I’ve got a little fitness & health self-audit for you today to help keep you on track with your healthy habits. This can be a good self-check to see if you need to double down on your healthy habits after the past few months.
