I’ve been talking about my weight loss journey, and several of my readers have emailed to ask me to share my tips and tricks. I can say with great confidence that all of my greatest tips and tricks for living a healthy lifestyle come from my failures or identifying areas I struggle in. My struggles have definitely evolved as I’ve gone from having a full time job, to one child, to two kids.
For this current season of life, my biggest food struggles are being busy during the day and wanting to load up on quick, fast food, or processed foods. I’ve also got a horrible habit of rewarding myself with sweets during toddler meltdowns. I find that having a concrete plan is helpful! I like to make a schedule, and consider if I’ll eat out that week, will I need to back a lunch, or will we eat at home everyday?
I love to prep my meals! I thought I would share some tips for simplifying the meal prep process.
Boil some eggs.
Use the crockpot to make bulk chicken or ground beef.
Spiralize your veggies!
I recently discovered these Reynolds™ Disposable Heat & Eat containers. They make planning your meals for the week so much easier. They are made with plant based products! Perfect for the microwave.
