So many people come to me thinking that they need to completely overhaul their nutrition, never get takeout again, or meal prep an entire gourmet ‘clean’ dinner for every night of the week.
Reality is, the chances of that happening consistently over time are slim to none.
What usually happens is the veggies we never prep go bad on the counter, the chicken breast gets moved to the freezer because you never cook it, and you end up with pizza on Monday night because you have no time to cook.
Instead, I like to focus on making the transition a bit simpler.
Think about convenient healthier options that you can grab and go in a pinch. Stock your freezer with healthy options you’ll actually enjoy and take 2 minutes to prep.
Set yourself up for success instead of having unrealistic expectations and setting yourself up for failure.
Because let’s be real, if you have to choose between pizza and chicken and broccoli, you’ll probably choose the pizza every time.
