Being a wife and a mom can really be tough. Every day is a juggling act as you manage the household, go to work, and take care of your family. One of the biggest challenges is making sure everyone is getting the right kind of nutrition. When you are all on the go, it’s easy to fall into the junk food and fast food trap. You’ve decided that is not going to happen on your watch. Take some simple tips to make sure the ones you love are eating right.
Have Nutritional Snacks at the Ready
If you know that your kids and husband are going to grab the first thing they can get their hands on, make sure they only have good choices. Get rid of the chips and the cookies. Cut up fruit and vegetables. Have them ready in baggies or to-go cups. Add some low-fat yogurt or yogurt dip to spice things up. Stock up on whole grain crackers, rice cakes, and other low-fat snacks that will fulfill their cravings for something salty. Yogurt is always a good choice. There are plenty of flavors to make everyone happy.
Make Smoothies and Try Juicing
With help from the Blender Babes, you can put your vitamix blender to work with great recipes for smoothies that will enrich everyone’s diet. Get the vitamins, protein, and fiber that you all need in a tasty creation that seems like a dessert. Give juicing a go and you can make sure everyone stays on the healthy track with juices that are a blend of fruits and vegetables.
Shop for the Week Ahead
Make sure that you plan your grocery shopping trip for the entire week ahead. Otherwise, you are more likely to eat out or order take-out when you don’t have food on hand in your cabinets. Sit down and carefully plan out your meals for the week so that you will know exactly what you need to buy. Stick to your list, don’t shop when you are hungry, and find ways to shop by yourself. You will avoid those impulse buys that could derail your efforts. When you shop with care, you will find yourself bringing home the right kind of foods for your family. In the end, everyone will appreciate it when they feel and look great.
