As a heath and fitness coach, the most common thing I see people give up on when trying to live healthier is consuming a better diet.
Here's a few reasons why I believe this happens:
1. We make it way too complicated
2. We don't give ourselves grace in the process.
3. We don't trust the process (we just want the fast-acting magic pills).
The truth is, nobody eats a giant salad for every meal and we all crave sugary foods because they are in our face 24-7 everywhere we go.
The main way my family and I combat the frustrations that can come with getting healthy meals on our plates in a busy season is to simplify.
Breakfast is usually steel cut oats in the instapot or sauteed veggies with omelets + avocado. Lunch during the summer is almost always a really filing smoothie this like one. Dinner is commonly leftovers or grilled burgers and veggies or meatloaf type dishes.
The truth is, I follow a very flexible meal plan. What works for me is the keep my shopping list smaller and my meal list simple so my mind knows exactly what my options are and we have flexibility from day-to-day.
Don't get hung up on following rules when it comes to healthy eating. They aren't sustainable. Instead, find a simple system that works for your family that will continually improve how you fuel your body.
