Come Up With A Few Meals That Are Easily Customizable
Members Were Sparked
We all like variety, but none of us want to spend all day cooking! I have about 3 go-to meals that I can always whip up in a hurry, but they're easily customized depending on what I feel like eating. Oatmeal w/ flax seed for breakfast (add toasted, chopped nuts, maple syrup, craisins, whatever!), stir-fry for lunch (any veggies you have, egg, whatever other protein is lying around the house), or fish and veggies.
So I keep oatmeal, flax seed, dried fruits, frozen fish, frozen veggies on-hand at all times, and I can make a few dozen different variations on those 3 dishes... no excuse to not eat healthy!

I keep a 16 oz glass next to my kitchen sink. Every time I pass the kitchen sink I fill up the glass and drink it all down. So with the time I am in the kitchen during meal times I easily down 2-3 of these glasses at each meal. Also, when a craving comes on I have made it habitual to reach for my glass next to the kitchen sink instead of heading to the fridge!
