You shop in spurts. You shop when you get around to it. It shows in your productivity and your attitude. Now you’ve a half-empty fridge and a pantry full of stuff that won’t actually make a meal.
While your head knows that food is fuel and that you are what you eat, you need to take that knowledge and make it work for you. Without a regular shopping plan, you may skip breakfast, grab fast food lunch, call for dinner delivery or waste more time running out. None of that adds up to nutrition.
Make meal planning and grocery shopping a priority. Plan on high quality breakfasts like Greek yogurt and fruit that you can eat at home or grab and go. Get lunch food you can pack. Find snacks for home that really work to give you energy such as nuts and protein bars. Then plan easy 30-minute or less dinners. Make extra and take it for lunch.
Today’s changing supermarket shopping is all to your advantage. Order from your sofa and swing by and pick it up every Monday on the way home or have it delivered. Make it a routine.
Keeping yourself and your family fed – and fed well- is time consuming. The more organized your approach, the more time you save to focus on the home and work things that are piling up.
Until next time …
