Q: Do you have any tips for eat­ing well through­out the work week? My­work sched­ule makes it dif­fi­cult to have the time to prepare healthy meals. – James A: It is un­de­ni­able that we have more on our plates than ever be­fore and while I ap­pre­ci­ate that many of us are jug­gling nu­mer­ous tasks and roles daily, there is nothing on this Earth that can re­place a highly nu­tri­tious way of eat­ing. It’s so im­por­tant that we take re­spon­si­bil­ity for our nour­ish­ment and pri­ori­tise our own health and well­be­ing – it af­fects how we show up each and every day. With that said, I com­pletely un­der­stand that most peo­ple these days sim­ply don’t have the time or the en­ergy to spend hours in the kitchen every day. Nu­tri­tious food doesn’t have to be com­pli­cated, but a lit­tle plan­ning can go a long way in help­ing to make nour­ish­ing choices eas­ier through­out the week. Here are some tips: for one meal, cook a larger amount so that you’ll have leftovers for lunch the next day. If you’re freez­ing it, pack each serve/meal into a sep­a­rate con­tainer so that you can eas­ily de­frost one meal at a time.
