Nutrition has always been one of those things that is just so overwhelming to me. There are always so many opinions on what type of diet if sufficient, and it seems that things are changing all the time. But how do you get the nutrition that you need?
And it gets even harder as an adult, right? We have crazy lives...we are busy with kids, working the jobs, paying the bills, cleaning the house...and the temptation of sweets and junk food does NOT help.
So here are some tips that will help us get the nutrition we need as crazy busy women! And the best part is, it doesn't matter what your "diet" of choice is...these tips will help you stick to it!
It's Time to Meal Plan
If you're anything like me, meal planning is not my favorite thing. But not only does it help me eat healthier, it keeps me organized, it saves me time, and it saves me money.
Pro Tip: the first step to meal planning is to do an end of the week inventory of your refrigerator and pantry. Prioritize the items in your refrigerator that will go bad within the week and start your meal planning around those items first!
Have SUPER YUMMY Healthy Snacks Ready to Go!
I love to have snacks ready to go for both me and my daughter. Create 1 bin for each person in the family and fill it each morning with the snack allotment of the day. Things like apples, clementines, stringed cheese, trail mix, crackers, granola bars, etc, can go in these bins. Each person gets their own "free for all" snacks for the day! When the snacks are gone...they are gone until the morning. :).
Make a Healthy Shake a Part of Your Morning Routine
But what do you put in the shake? Well, that's why doTERRA's new nutrition line is AMAZING. I love making a simple smoothie and adding doTERRA's protein power, fiber, and greens to it! Here are a couple of super simple recipes:
Milk of Choice
Milk of Choice
Nut Butter of Choice
doTERRA's Chocolate Protein Powder
So let's not get all intense about what diet is right. You will never find the right answer on the internet because every professional has a different opinion. Find what works for you...find what makes you feel energized and ALIVE! Use common sense (like we all know that a salad is healthier than a pizza). Then follow these tips to help make it easier on yourself. And also...indulge in a treat here and there...I mean, no need to get crazy, am I right?
I also want to make sure you know that you can get doTERRA's full nutrition line if you don't have a doTERRA wholesale account yet. There are two ways to do this. The first way is to click on this link if you are convinced that you need this amazing Healthy Habits and Nutrition Kit! If you still have questions, you can book a virtual coffee chat with me so that we can talk about your health goals and figure out if this is right for you! YAY!
Until next time, friend!
