Secrets of Success

Plan Your Menu Around Your Schedule




I plan my weekly menu around my schedule to curb the urge to eat out. On days that I know I'll have something else to do during the time that I'm normally cooking (ex. on day's my daughter has dance until 5:30) I plan a slow cooker meal so that I know dinner will be ready when we get home and I'm not tempted to stop somewhere. On the days I know I probably just won't feel like cooking (usually Friday or Saturday) I plan something that can be prepared in under 20 minutes.

    The slow cooker is the best invention I think. I love the fact that I don't have to begin cooking once I get home. This increases the possibilities of working out in the evening, due to more time. For me it is also a good way to incorporate veggies on the sly. - by LARALIRA
