I know… I know… It’s a weird name but hear me out.
I can empathize with women when they tell me they don’t have the time to meal prep. I get it, and it’s normal to think you don’t have that extra time to prepare the meals. However, I have been a part of the contradiction of “I don’t have the time.” I say it like that because I have set in a “fast food” line for an excruciating amount of time and waited on food. For the record, it is no longer fast, convenient, or cheap. Also, consider the amount gas you may have burned up waiting in that line.
My baggy method is simple, healthy, and convenient for when you run short on time. I know not everyone has the same kind of 24 hours in their day, but you can carve out some time to prepare small Ziplock bags of different grab and go options for yourself, your kids, and even your husband. You can do it for yourself, and I will bet anything that your kids will want it just because it’s yours. Monkey see, monkey do. You can also make it a fun project for your kids. Spend quality time with them and get something accomplished that benefits your family’s health. WIN, WIN for mom!
You are capable of creating new habits in your life!
Here is a very short list of options for your baggies:
- Dark chocolate chips
- Boiled eggs
And that, as I stated, is a very short list. You can get as creative or keep it as simple as you want.
We eat with our eyes first, and the colorful variety this offers can be appealing to anyone once they try it. These options are good for protein, healthy fats and carbohydrates, which are macronutrients the body needs to perform at its best. And it will cut down on your electric bill. Imagine how much time you and your family spend in front of the fridge with the door opened just waiting for appealing food to appear at eye level. We all do it.
