Most of us like to have a life that adheres to a schedule. But sometimes life can be unpredictable and we need to make adjustments to our plans.
To have more time for the things that are more important in your life, you need to streamline the areas of your life that are repetitive and/or annoying.
Here’s how to streamline eating and cooking:
Plan Your meals out for the Week. This saves time - you get all the ingredients in one trip to the store - and money - you avoid food waste and optimize for promotions. And you also eat healthier since you cook yourself and plan your meals instead of eating what you feel like when you are really really hungry. Bonus: Order your groceries online to save even more time
Meal Prep on Sundays. Saves you time and takes care of the cooking and cleaning in one go. If it’s too much at first, start by cooking twice as much dinner and having the leftovers for lunch
Have a Set of Default Recipes. Know them by heart. This way you don’t have to waste time making decisions, shopping for ingredients, and researching new recipes
Always Have the Basics. And have a few of your favorite homemade meals in the freezer if life gets a little too hectic to cook something fresh!
Bonus: optimize your nutrition for optimal mental performance by experimenting with what works best for you in terms of eating frequency, carb/fat/protein distribution, and type of foods (watch out for sensitivities and intolerances).
