It’s Wednesday morning and it looks like the weather for the Waste Management is going to be perfect all week – big surprise:)
Today, let’s do something outrageous (okay, we preach it from the mountain tops, but only because it works).
Instead of over-complicating our already-complex lives, let’s focus on keeping things SIMPLE to help you stay on track with your goals in 2022.
Let’s 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 put together
- Align with your 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.
Our co-founder Ryan had a “real” job about a decade ago. And he ate the same lunch for 6 months.
That’s a little extreme. But our palettes are just fine rotating through the same 6-10 meals.
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 helps 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.
Hope this helps make your meal planning a little easier.
