If I had to choose one area that’s the most important thing you can do for your health and wellbeing, it’d be learning to cook and meal prep.
I know it may not sound like much fun. Maybe you’re thinking “errr, I don’t like to cook.”…
But here’s the thing, this is so much more than something you like to do or not (as if it were optional), an interest or a hobby. Cooking is a survival skill. It’s that important and essential.
Over the years as I’ve coached so many different people who’ve wanted to take charge of their health for one reason or another, no matter their “what” or “why,” with every single one we end up in the kitchen learning these basic skills.
It’s why now I always say - the path to health is through the kitchen. There’s no way around it.
And it’s why I’ve created an entire stand alone digital program to teach people the easiest, most efficient way to cook possible. It’s called Dinner in 10 - you can check it here to learn more and even give it a test run with this FREE 3-Day Meal Plan.
The kind of cooking I’m talking about here may not be what you’re thinking of so hear me out a little more on this….
The way I cook is there’s no complicated Pinterest recipes. Just real food. Lots of veggies. And leftovers. Always leftovers.
Sounding a little better already, right?
You see, I believe that somewhere between The Food Network and #instafood we got tricked into thinking this whole plan-shop-prep-cook thing is a lot more complicated than it needs to be. And it’s made those three little words - “What’s for Dinner?” cringeworthy.
Then you combine that with every diet trend or headline you’ve ever heard about, and “healthy” feels like Mount Everest.
Can you relate?
Today I want to try to break it down for you a bit and give you some practical tips to make the whole meal prep process a little less daunting and more manageable.
And I encourage you to try my FREE 3-Day Sample Meal Plan that will give you everything you need to get you started, including a shopping list, step-by-step instructions and recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner for three whole days.
If you like that, then definitely check out Dinner in 10, which I say is like getting into the habit of meal prepping every week with training wheels. It takes out all the thought and planning and gives you everything, telling you exactly what to buy, do, cook for four weeks of good, healthy eating.
For now, let’s get you started with those practical tips for shopping, prepping and cooking. I hope these inspire you to get in the kitchen this week and that they make it easier for you too.
