Spending hours on meal planning and grocery shopping sets you up to feel overwhelmed and leads to inaction. Forget that drama. It’s time to simplify.
Let me introduce you to what I call: Delicious Monotony.
What it is: Choose just a few meals you love. Repeat them over and over until you get tired of them.
Why: Researchers have found when you have too many choices, it whittles away at your willpower and leads to poor decisions. Delicious monotony simplifies your meal choices and leads to healthier eating.
Do this: Pick just 2 breakfast recipes and 3 dinner recipes for the week. You can eat leftovers from dinner for lunch. Shop for the ingredients for only 5 total recipes & enjoy just these recipes for the week. This saves you from coming up with a million new things to eat. When you get tired of these meals after a week or two, just swap in a few new ones.
Monotony, yes. Delicious, yes. Simple, yes.
