“I want to eat healthier but sometimes it’s so hard to get into a healthy rhythm when I’m so used to grabbing a cookie
It does to me.
Trying to make healthy food choices since becoming a mom has been… interesting. To say the least.
One sleep deprived night with a sick munchkin and all I want to eat is all the carbs. Cookies for breakfast? Sounds great! Even though I know that won’t help my energy/mood and will actually make me feel worse in the long run.
So what do I do to help myself make healthier choices (while still enjoying some sweets and treats here and there because this isn’t about depriving yourself of donuts all the time)?
The truth is, we’re busy (famished) moms who don’t have time to sit and enjoy a perfectly balanced meal or snack whenever we want.
So how can you make the healthiest choices possible, as much as possible?
Specifically during those times when you’re at the grocery store and the family sized salt and vinegar chip bag is whispering “take me home!”
Or those times you’ve just put munchkin to bed and Netflix and the Costco sized bag of Chipits is on the menu.
Or those times you’re so stressed out because you’re still up at 1:42am trying to finish that super important project that needs to be done before 8am tomorrow that you just can’t help but eat your emotions.
