There was a time in my life where I didn’t care for my body. Where I didn’t eat the foods that I knew were good for me. When I let my cravings and emotions control what and when I ate. When I didn’t have time to create a healthy life for myself.
I was a late night eater, I battled with sugar cravings, I ate maybe once or twice a day and in huge volumes when I did.
I was never really sure when I was hungry. I didn’t know what foods I should be eating, when, and how much. I felt out of control.
I ate out at restaurants a lot and felt like garbage every waking moment. This feeling seeped into the way I interacted with others, how I held myself in conversations and how I lived out my life.
I wanted a new beginning for myself.
So this is what I did….Beginning with breakfast and moving my way through the day, I started to plan my meals. I ate toast with almond butter, then toast with almond butter and an apple, then swapped out the toast for some cooked quinoa. Once I felt I had mastered breakfast, I moved on to my snacks, then to lunch and lastly, dinner. Little by little, day by day, hours passed, days passed, weeks passed, months passed and I was making progress toward my goal of living a healthy life. I got into the habit of eating healthy, of preparing quick and easy meals that made me feel good, of taking care of my body, of choosing foods that I knew would squash my cravings, of freeing myself from late night snacking sessions… meal planning changed my life. Our inability to get into a healthy eating routine is what stops many of us from living the life we want to live. But it doesn’t have to be this way. We can have the time to do the things we love and feel healthy, we can make convenient meals that are ready in a flash, we can live a life without cravings, we can make mealtime enjoyable… I’ve made it my life’s mission to help catapult your health forward.
