Hello, again. I hope you’re doing well. Just a quick one today as I’m getting ready to release the final details of my annual Transformation Contest! I’m pretty excited about it.
I want to see something. Raise your hand if you have a stress free life and more time than you know what to do with. OK, for some reason I didn’t see too many hands go up. Could it be that many of us are crunched for time nearly every day?
One of the biggest issues I see with people’s nutrition is that once we get started each day with our crazed super-busy lives we wind up making bad choices with our food. I know it’s 5:30, traffic is nuts and you have to get little Johnny to soccer practice by 6:15 and help him with his home work as soon as that’s over and some version of this is repeated in all our lives every day. This is where preparation can make all the difference.
Be honest about your commitments and your schedule and take some time beforehand to prepare a bunch of healthy meals. It takes no more time to grill five pounds of chicken then it takes to grill one serving. (Quick chicken breast grilling technique – Marinate the chicken in water, kosher salt, poultry seasoning, cumin and tumeric for 2-3 hours. Preheat your grill to a low-medium heat. Grill each side for about 5 minutes. That should do it.) Do it all at once and you have some good options to get you through those rough scheduling patches.
I know it’s not “sexy” but I’ve got news for you. The McDonald’s drive through is significantly less sexy. Before, during and definitely after.
Take a look for an email later today with the information about my Transformation Contest! It’s going to be really great and I’m definitely excited about it! Oh, and by the way, there’s going to be an individualized food planning option but only for the first six people that want to sign up for it, so be ready!
