Where’d that wagon go?

I’ll admit it. We’ve fallen off the healthy eating wagon. I guess the road got a little bumpy between Junior’s birthday, the holidays, and wanting comfort food in this cold weather. I started out clinging to the wagon, but eventually, let go. It’s time to climb back on the wagon, but that means I have to find it first. Which way do I go?

I’ve decided that one thing for me is convenience. I don’t mean packed, boxed, crap food. I just don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen every day. I want to use my time more wisely. If I’m making marinara sauce, I’m going to make a bigger batch so I can freeze a couple more dinners worth. One way to make this easier, is meal planning a month at a time. If I plan ahead, I should be able to use my efforts more wisely. I’m also going to use index cards to write down our favorite meals and their ingredients. When I menu plan, I’ll have a quick easy reference to everyone’s favorites.

Wish me luck!
