So, imagine it’s 4:30 or so, and it’s just dawning on you that you don’t know what you’re fixing for dinner tonight. Do you figure out what recipe you’re going to use, make a list, go by the store, and cook it when you get home? Or do you choose frozen factory food, drive-through, or carryout — again?
I know that routine well! It’s how I lived from my early 20’s till, oh, about my early 50’s. But not any more.
People often ask me how/what I eat, and when they hear the words “real food,” or “veggies, protein, and healthy fat,” a typical response is, “Oh, I don’t have time for that.”
But the thing is, they probably do. You probably do.
Oh, there’s a bit of a learning curve, where you have to figure out how to tweak your shopping and your meal prep, but I’m about to give you a shortcut. And once you put some key pieces together, it’s really easy to throw a meal together in 20 minutes or less.
Every. Single. Day.
I worked it out the hard way, but now I’ve got it down to a system. I’ve scattered bits and pieces of my system through several posts on this blog, but I’ve never put them together in one place, in a systematic way that flows logically.
Until now! 🙂
I pulled several blog posts, updated them, added some new content, and organized it into a short e-book.
I worked hard at boiling everything down to easy-to-understand and easy-to-do. And I think I got it, because my first reader said,
“This book not only gave me a better understanding of nutrition, but encouraged me as well. As I read it I thought, ‘I could do this!’ Which for me is huge!“
I share the what, why, and how of my real-food approach that’s helped me keep 30 pounds off for three years, and feel better than I have since my 20’s! (Which was — cough – 30 years ago – cough.)
Just shortened that learning curve for ya!
- why real food matters
- what to eat and what to avoid
- a simple real-food meal template
- how to make it easy forever:
– the flexible meal plan approach
– how I stock my kitchen
– how I stock my freezer
- tips for healthier snacks & eating out
“If you’re looking to make a change and need a place to start, this book is it!”
– a reader
This e-book captures my most important tips and info. It includes lots of links to real-food recipes on this blog, and to other resources. Just putting in the links (rather than the whole recipe) keeps the book short and simple — and affordable.
How affordable? How does five bucks sound? (Psst — you can get it for even less if you share it on Facebook or Twitter. Look for the button that says “Share and get 40% off.”)
I’m keeping it cheap ’cause I really just want you to experience how great it feels to get really healthy, have more energy, shed the brain fog, and make it doable for your real life — forever!
