"What's for dinner, Mom?"
This simple question can be enough to send you into a panic and make a frantic phone call for pizza delivery. It's not that you don't care about preparing a balanced meal. It's just that you're tired, overwhelmed, and the last thing you want to think about is what to cook.
I get it - because it wasn't too long ago I was in your shoes. With two children running in different directions, a career, and a husband that traveled, by the end of the day I had nothing left to give anyone, and cereal for dinner sounded pretty good.
The game changer? I started to plan our weekly dinners ahead of time and prepped what I could in advance. My family started eating more nutritious meals, we rarely resorted to packaged foods or take-out, and dinner time became more enjoyable.
Sounds like a better approach, right?
The key is to practice planning and preparing in advance…not when you are rushed or hangry!
