A More Amazing You
Strategy #2 – Cook More Meals at Home
When you cook more meals at home, not only do you tend to eat healthier, but you can also save time, money and calories.
If you cook a meal and make a double or triple batch, you’ll have left overs for lunches or another dinner. By cooking once and eating two or three times, you are being extremely efficient with your time, money and calories.
It’s much easier to eat healthy when you’re the one selecting the ingredients and preparing the meals. I know it takes more time to plan and prepare yourself, but if you are looking to lose or maintain weight, feel better and save money, it’s definitely worth the effort.
On the nights that I know we have other activities going on, the crockpot is a HUGE help!
What nights can you plan to cook at home this week?
Need dinner ideas? There are so many great websites for recipe ideas including:
- eMeals.com (this is a paid service that sends you 5 recipes each week based on the dietary style you choose)
- Or for my personal meal planning you can contact me here!
If life is just way too hectic, you can use services like Dream Dinners or Super Suppers where you go to their location and assemble your meals. You bring the assembled meals home and freeze them and use as needed. You’ll spend 30-60 minutes at their studio and can make enough meals for a week or a month AND no clean up. This option is super convenient!
Home cooked meals also provide a time for you and your family to sit down and download. We live in a non-stop world these days and to stay healthy we need to slow down and enjoy the things that matter most!
