meal preparation is the key to healthy eating

help me

i'd like to, but i'm worried you'll give up. it usually takes me half of one day (about six hours) on the weekend to shop, chop, and cook everything i want to prep for the upcoming week

but then i spend almost no time preparing meals during the week and i'm able to eat really well. i save money overall too by avoiding eating at restaurants (save for one cheat meal per week)

your concern is valid

do you want to start eating better? if you do then start small, bub

just try to make one part of one meal healthy for a month (so have some oatmeal with breakfast, or carrots with lunch, or roasted veg with dinner). build on that

my cholesterol is high so i’m supposed to be dieting

but yeah i am trying to start small... I thought about eating oatmeal for dinner a few nights a week

what's your biggest challenge? motivation? consistency?

I did have some breakfast taco's this morning :\ but i did make them myself and there were spinach in them. Also, maybe i need the protein since ive been lifting.

hey strat, rate my breakfast:

3 scrambled eggs (mix 2 tbsp cottage cheese + splash of almond milk while beating the eggs)
4oz ground chicken thighs
20 oz smoothie (almond milk, pomegranate juice (100% fruit, not from concentrate), ground flax, almond butter, spinach, beets, avocado, banana, blueberries)

This looks like a typical strat breakfast when he is doing what he is meant to do. I give that a 10/10. I like the additiona of cottage cheese, though i don't use any milk for cooking my eggs and stick with a few teaspoons of olive oil.

Almond butter and avocado and ground flax are fantastic additions to a smoothie.

I have enjoyed the hello fresh and blue apron offerings. That is a good way to get some new tasty recipes to keep in your back pocket

well the convenience is taken care of with the prep

really, it's just a matter of making the effort until it becomes habit and lifestyle. just resolve to make one small part of a particular meal - either breakfast, lunch, or dinner - healthy, and do it for a month. oatmeal is a good place to start because it's cheap, tasty, and super easy to prep

i buy three or four beets and roast them as part of the prep, then add 1/2 cup of the roasted beets to the smoothie as well. can't really taste them, but they're super healthy and a really good addition

my smoothies are now 60% veg, 40% fruit (depending on how one classifies an avocado, i suppose) and they're so dang good

G dangit. Looks like im feeling a bit more motivated to not be a bum tonight.

Probably just roast some chicken, rice, and steamed veggies. Keep it light.

Also, eat early, friends. Before 7. Need ample time to digest before laying down for bed.

And if you are having digestive issues, lay on your left side.

This all looks great, but are you surpassing your absorbable protein limit? You might be able to dial that back a bit.

Yeah, I've made a real effort to stop eating and drinking after 7pm, it makes a huge difference

this is my biggest downfall. i don't get home from work until about 7 on a typical night. then i want to hang with my kids. by the time i can eat, it's about 8:30. and i can't go without a beer or two (at around 7% abv, you can do the math on the calories).
