Happy May — it’s the month we celebrate moms all over the country. And where does mom spend most of her time? In the kitchen. Whether we like it or not, the kitchen is the center of all food decisions. And who’s responsible for those food decisions? MOM! Moms are the most powerful influences on a family’s eating habits (according to studies done by the University of Minnesota) — through the planning, the shopping, the preparing, the cooking, the serving, and the clean up. We decide what goes on the table and into our family’s stomachs. You can expect a dietitian to say better health starts in the kitchen, right?! It really does!
But, what if you are thinking, “I wish I had someone to help me with…”:
- A faster and more efficient way to meal plan.
- Telling me which meals are the best meals to include for health and taste.
- Not having to overthink the meal planning process, instead making it more simplified.
- Opening the frig at 4:30 and thinking “What’s for dinner?”
- Not wasting money at the grocery store when it feels like I come out with more snacks than meal ideas.
Well, you do have help. That’s why every mom needs a dietitian. To help simplify the meal planning process, to ensure healthy and good tasting meals are on the table, and to boost efficiency while saving money without the stress! I’m proud to announce a brand new webinar for you! And it’s free! Friday, May 5, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. (Scroll down to register)
Dietitian’s Kitchen: Simple Tips to Kitchen Organization, Efficient Meal Planning, and Essential Kitchen Tools to Make Meals a Breeze!
And Here are My Best Meal Planning Tips:
Quickest change to healthify the kitchen? A meal plan. After spending three years on cycle meal planning, I can see SO much value in using this tool as an opportunity to take the stress out of the kitchen. With a cycle meal plan, you always know what’s for dinner, you have a weekly shopping list, the cycle menus are filled with a variety of healthy meals that families love. And I LOVE putting these together. You can aim for a 4-week, 6-week, or 8-week plan. And it can be rotated by the seasons too. It’s a brilliant concept food service kitchens use, and it can work perfectly for home kitchens as well.
Super-simple changes that take just a few minutes and really make a difference? Start thinking about how you begin and end the day — start with a smoothie to pack in the fruit and end with a salad to pack in the vegetables. Simple tips that are easy to remember.
Kitchen set-up…does it really matter? Kitchen organization is key, as is getting rid of all the junk that isn’t useful. You need essential tools that make meal prep a breeze. You need tools that make cooking more fun. And you need tools that are so simple to use, your family wants to help too.
Easy strategy for food prep? Freezer meals! These can be a part of your cycle menu rotation, or you can double your favorite recipe as you go to have an extra meal in the freezer. It’s like the cook once, eat twice mantra, which is a bit like freezer meal or batch cooking. You are in the kitchen anyway, why not make it efficient by making a double batch!
