Last year was a tough one for me. Being a first time mum, trying to keep the house moderately clean, cooking healthy foods, getting myself out there and keeping in touch with the world it was a juggling act.
There’s one thing I want to do well this year is eat better. Oh I don’t mean going cold turkey and eat healthy raw whole foods everyday (some people are great at it), but it’s not quite the way I’m built! I love foods with flavour and a little spice. I love all the different cuisines and food from all cultures.
I’ve thought about it for sometime and what I need to do well is meal prep and be conscious of the foods I’m choosing.
For example, I love soft drinks. I know it’s bad for me, I’ve heard the facts and I know a can of Coca Cola has 10 teaspoons of sugar. Yikes! But I reach out, knowing fair well it’s bad and do it anyway.
When the week gets crazy and I haven’t had a chance to think about what I’ll make for dinner, it’s off to the roast shop or getting some sort of take out. Because it’s easier. Because I’m lazy. So….. by posting this now, I’m going to commit to eating healthier.
I’ll indulge in my sweets, soft drinks and other naughty foods on occasion. However, What I will do differently is do more meal prepping. If I did this every week and PLANNED ahead, it’s going to reduce the number of times I make an excuse to reach out for bad foods.
So with your help, I’d love to know what your favourite freezer meals are that I can cook in batches and freeze. Or main dinner means that take less than 15-20 minutes to smash out.
Pop it in the comments below, even it’s a link to a recipe or something you’ve made before.
It’ll motivate me to get started and I’ll snap pictures of me doing it!
