Maximize your nutrition and plan for success!
This concept won’t sound new but I can’t even begin to stress the importance of it!
***MEAL PREPPING IS A MUST!!!***
You can’t expect yourself to eat and be healthy without putting in a little work. There is no such thing as the healthy food fairy 🧚🏻 so you have to plan your meals to make sure you are getting all the nutrients you need AND to avoid eating foods that rob your body of energy or make you feel like crap.
What happens when you don’t plan…
🤦🏻♀️You eat out WAY more and can be easily tempted with not so good foods
🤦🏻♀️ You find yourself starving and would eat anything that crosses your path
🤦🏻♀️ You under eat or have incomplete meals leaving your body under nourished
Meal prepping doesn’t mean spending hours in the kitchen on a Sunday (unless that’s what you like). It can be as simple as…
🙇🏻♀️ Being mindful about where your next meal will come from and researching the options beforehand
🙇🏻♀️ Grocery shopping 1-2 times per week to have healthy foods on hand
🙇🏻♀️ Using a tool like @realplans to do the planning for you
🙇🏻♀️ Signing up for a healthy food or meal delivery service
While we sometimes like to make some more elaborate recipes, we limit sauces and pastas and mostly eat whole, fresh foods, incorporating some spices and good fats such as a little olive oil or avocado oil or ghee. I love roasting fresh veggies, too with a little olive oil and spices in the oven! I also have been working on creative ways to use leftovers and incorporate into egg dishes or salads.
What is one reasonable meal prep action you can challenge yourself to take today to be more mindful and set yourself up for nutritional success?
Whatever your action is, practice this habit for the next 14 days to improve health and feel your best!
