This week has been so incredibly hectic! There’s so much change in progress that it makes my head spin just thinking about it. Two sisters are moving – one out of the country and one just a few blocks from their old digs. My little man is getting bigger by the hour and I have been married for 9 years, today!?!? Where does the time go?
“Time – when pursued like a bandit – will behave like one.” – Elizabeth Gilbert Eat, Pray, Love
This week, there have been such huge amounts of change, that I needed to (at least try to) cling to something constant. For me, this is my Meal Planning Process.
This ritual allows me to make sure that I am eating healthy, buzz in and out of the grocery store, try new recipes, have little to no food wasted, and enjoy the process. When I prepare and eat energizing foods, I am at the top of my game, can be most present, and appreciate time rather than treating it like a bandit.
Despite all of my best planning efforts, there are still days where I just can’t get it all in or we are celebrating and decide to head out to dinner or dig into our Multi Meal Stash (Example Recipe Here). It doesn’t happen too often, but when it does, I try to choose the best and healthiest option. With all of the moves going on + the first Whole Food Love professional photo shoot, my kitchen was a bit out of sorts and the thought of cooking even a quick meal was exhausting. There is no secret, except to choose the BEST + HEALTHIEST OPTION.
If you find that you heave a hectic period coming up or are looking to begin a routine, I challenge you to try the Weekly Meal Planning Process for 2 weeks and see how freeing routine can be. Let us know what you think by leaving a comment.
Until next week…
Live your WHOLE life!
