Don't waste the skill of your doctor...

I just found this quote and I am so obsessed with it!!!

Such a great reminder...

It doesn't matter how good your doctor or how good the meds you are on...

Nothing will work to improve your health if you are not eating healthy!!! 

Even with the incredible advances in modern medicine and science, our bodies still need good nutrition from food. 

Cooking at home (there are many ways to learn!), hiring a meal delivery service (holla, St Louis!), or making a daily smoothie (tons of recipes on this blog) can do so much for your health.

But by the end of the season, the final few contestants who have been practicing cooking for some time, are actually good cooks. These people, who were chosen for this show based on how bad they are, have been transformed into mini chefs due to trial and error and practice.

That, my friend, is all it...

Food for thought

If you're not cooking at home, how much time are you spending running around trying to figure out what your next meal will be?

In my first job as a nutrition educator, I realized that while most of us don't find the time to cook, we don't realize how much time we are wasting trying to figure out what we are going to eat next. Whether we are sitting at our desk toiling, spending our lunch hour in the car looking, strolling up and down the grocery aisles searching for something to have for dinner. It's a problem! We just tend to think this is much more efficient way of doing things than setting aside a few hours to meal prep for the week, or going online to order some healthy delivery meals! 

Today, I challenge you to take a look at how much time is spent sourcing your next meal.

This doesn't have to take a long time, just take note of it as it happens. At the end of the day, or week, tally it up. Was it minutes, hours?

I would be willing to bet it was much more significant than...
