One of those days

You know the days I'm talking about... The ones where you put the salt and pepper in the fridge, and the milk in the cupboard. The ones where you search 10 minutes to find the sunglasses that are on top of your head. Or in my mom's case, the ones where you call your daughter to ask if she's seen your phone.

It's always nice to have things in your kitchen that you can just grab as you are running out the door. Let's face it, we live in a fast food world. Slowing down to eat is not easy, it takes discipline. We've got a laundry list of excuses to not cook tonight: we're tired from working 9:00 - 6:00, we have to take the dogs swimming, we would like to exercise too, we have extra-curriculars, or we just straight-up want to stop thinking so much and go to happy hour like the rest of our generation. plan for them! Go grocery shopping on a day that's slow (Sundays, for me). This gives you time to think about your list before you walk in. Plan ahead for snacking. You're crazy if you think you shouldn't buy snacks! We're hard working people, we need fuel. Snacking after poor planning is worse than planning for smart snacking.

My favorite snacks:
  • mixed nuts
  • hard boiled eggs
  • bananas
  • peanut butter and apples
  • chips and salsa
  • avocado
  • smoothies
There are plenty healthy snacks out there. Find one that you like and make it a staple in your kitchen!
