Welcome to week 2 of “Tuesday Tips: To A New You!” series!
This week, save time, money and calories!
Strategy #2 – Cook More Meals at Home
When you cook more meals at home, not only do you tend to eat healthier, but you can also save time, money and calories.
If you cook a meal and make a double or triple batch, you’ll have left overs for lunches or another dinner. By cooking once and eating two or three times, you are being extremely efficient with your time, money and calories.
It’s much easier to eat healthy when you’re the one selecting the ingredients and preparing the meals. I know it takes more time to plan and prepare yourself, but if you are looking to lose or maintain weight, feel better and save money, it’s definitely worth the effort.
On the nights that I know we have other activities going on with the kids, the crockpot is a HUGE help!
What nights can you plan to cook at home this week?
Need dinner ideas? There are so many great websites for recipe ideas including:
- eMeals.com (this is a paid service that sends you 7 diner recipes each week based on the dietary style you choose. It is also the service my 90-Day full pay clients get for a full year for FREE!)
If life is just way too hectic, you can use services like Dream Dinners where you go to their location and assemble your meals. You bring the assembled meals home and freeze them and use as needed. You’ll spend 30-60 minutes at their studio and can make enough meals for a week or a month AND no clean up. This option is super convenient! Or there are services who do the planning and prep for you and even deliver it to you like Blue Apron.
What one action step can you take this week to prepare more meals at home?
Wishing you all the best,
