5 Steps To Vibrant Health Without Slaving Away In The KitchenIs this something you have ever said?

“I really should eat more vegetables but I’m just so busy, so I’m living on ready meals, fast food and a lot of snacking to get through this busy period’.

We all aim to eat more real, whole foods but most people just never get around to it.

Is this something you struggle with too?

I totally understand how hard it is – especially at Christmas time when we’re running around after our kids – taking them to Christmas pantos, nativity plays, parties, dinners – you name it – they are being spoiled rotten.

But what about us? We end up frazzled, fatigued, gaining more weight and looking ever more frumpy.

But it doesn’t have to be like this. You can give your body a wonderful treat this year and give it some much needed nourishment.

You’re probably wondering how on earth you can manage the time to eat real, clean whole food when you’re rushed off your feet.

So here’s 5 Steps To Vibrant Health Without Slaving Away In The Kitchen.

I have found that the best possible way to live a healthy lifestyle and have healthy and delicious meals all week long is by meal prepping once for the whole week.

It saves me time, money, and stress, all the while allowing me to stay on track with eating healthy.

STEP 1: PLAN & SHOP

I begin meal planning by making a list of recipes and meals for the upcoming week. I create a list based on what I will have for breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and dinners. I use a weekly shopping list as my guide and then I’m off to the store!

If this step alone overwhelms you, this is where my meal plans come in! I have done all the work for you! They are broken down into the recipes, shopping lists, and even meal prep ideas for each week, based on the servings you need!

STEP 2: PREPARE THE FOOD

When I get home from the store I keep out the items I plan to use for my meal prep. I pull up my meal plans and get to washing and cooking! Throughout the week, I typically have a protein shake for breakfast, but I find that many of my breakfast recipes are great for mid-morning snacks, and/or if I am in need of a breakfast on-the-go.

I generally prepare big batches of veggies. I start with washing the greens, then set aside to dry and move onto slicing, dicing, and dividing veggies into containers for use in cooking and salads.

When a recipe calls for sautéed chicken or lean protein, I cook it in big batches in my biggest pan or crock pot! That way, I am only prepping chicken and/or lean meat once for all the recipes!  I store the extra chicken in the freezer for use later.

STEP 3: PUT EVERYTHING TOGETHER TO MAKE THE RECIPES

To keep it simple, I make a large salad in advance and then add the extras when I’m ready to eat it. If I’m taking it to go, I divide it into containers or use as leftovers.

For dinners, I typically make two favorite main dishes, which allows me to prepare and freeze in advance making it easy for during the week.

STEP 4: PUT IT ALL AWAY!

After all the food is prepped and the recipes are made, I put everything in containers and place it in the fridge! That way, I have delicious, fresh, whole foods for all meals during the week in minutes.

If you are still scratching your head, don’t let it discourage you!!! It can take time to learn and get in the swing of things.
