I make nutritious eating simple and affordable. I get a head start on the week. I figure out what to eat for the upcoming workdays and weekend. I upgrade my diet and simplify my life.
I pay attention to ingredients. I choose natural foods rich in fiber and essential nutrients. I focus on vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and lean proteins. I use healthy fats. I avoid ultra-processed items high in sugar and salt.
I watch my cooking methods. I steam, bake, and poach. I cut down on frying.
I stock up on kitchen staples. I keep my pantry supplied with anything I need for my favorite dishes and new recipes.
I look for bargains. I check store circulars for sales before I make my list. I buy seasonal produce and store brands. I cut down on food waste by buying only what my family can consume.
I shop the outer aisles at the supermarket. I avoid temptation by skipping shelves of chips and candy.
I learn about nutrition. I read books and watch cooking shows. I take classes and visit reliable websites.
I prepare most of my meals and snacks and make smart choices when I dine out or order in. I buy frozen yogurt instead of donuts. I top my pizza with mushrooms rather than pepperoni.
Today, I reduce stress and save time by planning my meals. I enjoy eating delicious whole foods and serving them to my family.
