I am a total believer in whole foods nutrition. I also lead a very busy life. Between the blog, the podcast, Camp Wellness and hosting events, I don’t necessarily have a ton of time to sit down and cook a farm-fresh meal everyday, let alone 3x a day.
I’ve tried the whole meal planning thing, but honestly it doesn’t work for me. My weekends are my off time and while I respect anyone who wants to meal prep/plan, the idea of dedicating any part of my weekend to prepping for the week ahead isn’t my idea of relaxing. And that’s okay!
As I sit here snacking on my PB&J Superfood Energy Balls, WHILE writing a blog post, I am reminded that most of us don’t have enough hours in a day to sit down to a home-cooked meal. While, C and I try to prioritize sitting down at the dining table and eating dinner together, most other meals are consumed on the run or while doing something else. And honestly, I don’t feel bad about it!
There is so much guilt around what we eat, but also how we eat. I so appreciate the meals that I can sit down and enjoy, but I also appreciate being done at 5:00 PM everyday without being absolutely famished, because I didn’t have time to have a formal meal. Eating on the run or while I work, works for for me. Will it work for you? I can’t necessarily say, but I think it’s important that we experiment and feel empowered in making choices that work for us, regardless of how they make somebody else feel.
It also means getting the best bang for your buck, like these PB&J Superfood Energy Balls that are packed-full of nutrition all in an easy portable snack.
