moderationI’ve been there too…. A little of this, a little of that..  moderation, RIGHT?  I know I’m not alone in hearing “everything in moderation”.  Many of us use the term moderation to justify our consumption of junk food, or unhealthy choices.

How to EAT Your Way to Better Health

how to eat healthy

If your schedule looks like mine (and chances are it does!) you are SUPER busy.  It seems like no matter who I talk to and ask “how are you” I hear “busy!” or “On the go” or “Oh, YOU KNOW… crazy!”    If we’re honest with each other – at one point or another you’ve shoved your kids out the door with a granola bar in hand and a juice box to wash it down.  And let’s not even talk about dinner – Sheetz or the drive thru become your go-to.

I WAS that mom- especially during baseball season and travel ball.  But what I quickly learned is that the time (and $$ MONEY $$) that I was investing into sitting in drive through lines or waiting for my order to be ready and the cash I spend on salads and sandwiches was outrageous.  It all started when a friend actually challenged me to spend 1-hour planning my meals out for a week, grocery shopping for that food and then preparing it in advance.  Her challenge – the week of planning and preparing would NOT just save money, but would also save me time.

In full disclosure, there was a gift card involved and I was “competing” with a few of my best girlfriends to see if it COULD be done.

Not only did I TOTALLY win the competition,  but I won a perspective that completely changed how I thought about being busy and finding time to eat healthy.  You see, before, I viewed eating as just something we needed to do so our stomachs didn’t growl and I didn’t snap someone in two from a case of “Hangry”. Eating healthy was not a priority.  Even though I said it was – I wasn’t showing it.

So how do you do this?

I created a template of one week and wrote out our breakfasts, lunches, dinner and snacks.  Seriously, its THAT simple.  You can even grab my template here:

Sometimes I get fancy and type it out, but honestly, 99.99999% of the time, its handwritten, scribbled on my fridge door for everyone to see.    This does a few things:

  1. I create a grocery list around my meal plan which saves me TIME and MONEY when shopping
  2. I can ALWAYS answer the question of “whats for dinner” no matter the day of the week or activity
  3. Take out is a treat, not a necessity
  4. It holds me accountable – like a made a promise to myself that I feel the need to keep
  5. We eat healthier now because we take the time to prioritize and plan for it

Sure, a meal plan may not be a magical way to get everyone together for one meal, but it certainly helps with those of us who are on the go.  Check out these 3 Meal Planning Secrets and be sure to grab YOUR free template:Download your Free Meal Planning Template
