Try to fix meals ahead of time. This will save you time for friends and other things I like to make double the portion of food that way you have food for two different nights. You could make dinners and freeze them too.
Using a crock pot is a great way to stay healthy when you have a busy hectic lifestyle. You get great flavor when you let the ingredients meld together all day long. You can monitor what you put in, and because it cooks all day you don't have to put as much salt in to get the flavor you want.
Do not cook if you do not feel to cook, or you are angry or sad. your thoughts can change your meal taste. If you want to cook a taste meal, cook with a happy and clam mind. Your thoughts and words are more powerful than your experiences. I have learned this from my grandma.
I know this sounds a little obvious, but the more boring meals become, the less likely we stick to a healthy food plan. Chicken breast and fish can be sooooooooo boring after awhile. Add spices and herbs! (fresh and dried). Change it up to change the tastes. Watch the salt however.
