Making a Healthy Dinner Doesn’t Need to be a Struggle

August 28, 2014

healthy dinner

The day starts at 7am: breakfast time.

Maybe you eat oatmeal, or toast, or eggs, or yogurt. Maybe you have french press coffee, green tea, or water.

Then there is lunch. Soup, sandwich, or salad?

You’ve already had to make two decisions about what to eat today, or what to feed your kids.

Now comes dinner.

Another decision about what to eat.

You open the fridge 3 times, each time revealing nothing handy to eat.

You’re hungry.

You wonder what you’re going to eat.

20 minutes later, you open the fridge again.

Nothing has changed.

Take-out? But you don’t want greasy Chinese or pizza, so you decide this is a bad idea.

Restaurant? Maybe, but is it worth the $40 you’re going to spend on a meal with mediocre ingredients and unhealthy fats?

Run to the grocery store? UGH. By the time you decide to do this, you’re starved, frustrated, run down, tired, and you don’t feel like cooking.

The process of trying to figure out what to cook, again, has got you defeated.

We’ve all been there, and there’s a way out of this cycle, but making a healthy dinner at home is easy.

Even if you don’t feel like cooking. Even if you don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen.

There is a solution that fits your budget, skills, and specific dietary needs. So that you can feel good about what’s for dinner. So that you can feel good about the food you put in your body. So that you can get your time and energy back.

In the next blog post, I’ll be expanding on why you don’t have to struggle to put healthy food on the table. Stay tuned. And please let me know in the comments what your biggest struggles are (or aren’t) when it comes to getting dinner ready every night.
