I find that a lot of women who complain about not being able to lose weight, are often also complaining that they don’t have time/desire/skills to cook.
Here’s the thing. If you don’t learn to cook, you’re not going to succeed long term. Jenny Craig be damned – we all need to know how to prepare good food that we can enjoy. I’m not suggesting that you become a chef by any means, but roasting veggies, grilling protein and melting butter really isn’t rocket science. It’s actually fun once you get the hang of it.
If you’re cooking for just for yourself, try making a few meals at once so it’s easy to grab healthy leftovers. If you’re cooking for a bunch of people, let them know that this is how they are going to eat from now on. Either put down the gauntlet or make it a fun, collaborative thing, but at the end of the day, you have to make healthy, whole food meals for yourself in order to lean out.
Just google healthy easy recipes and see where that takes you, or check out our collection of carb smart, healthy meals on Pinterest. After a while, you’ll get used to cooking and maybe even learn to love it!
