It may be a Pain

So how to eat smarter?
Meal prep!
Is it a pain?
It can be, but so worth it for your future self.

So think of Future You

Write out foods you like on a list and consider creating healthy meals on a weekend night, so you will not be Hangry and eat whatever. 

Even if you do not prep a meal, but have a list of a fairly simple meals ready to go, then that works as well. 

Eating better is the key to weight loss. Everything else like exercise, medications, and mindfulness all lead back to eating better. There is no diet that has been proven to be king, only what works for you. A diet that is not cheap and lacks in nutrition. 

I am a fan of creating a meal plan for the week and having a list of my meals in the kitchen, so when I am stumped and hungry, I eat what I have listed. 

Lately, I have been busy so I have been on the “bar” type of meal plan. 

-Salad bar: lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, hard-boiled egg, a bit of exciting protein like a couple of bacon slices, fried turkey, smoked salmon, and a dressing which is a vinegar and oil combo. 

-Rice bar: I pan fry up some greens, carrots in salt and oil, hard-boiled egg with rice and a dressing

-Noodle bar: The laziest night. I use rice noodles, thaw some pesto I had meal prepped, add some walnuts and some parmesan and its done. 

-Taco Bar: either beans and ground meat, with salad bar items

And this goes on
