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!
