When You Don’t Feel Like Cooking Dinner: Easy Ideas

Do you ever find yourself in a “what’s for dinner” rut? Bored by the same dishes week after week, it sometimes becomes hard to break out of the monotony. Gone are nightly meals of meat, starch, and vegetables. Many people are grateful to have such a dinner once a week!

Because many decisions about what to eat are driven by convenience, taste, familial preferences, time, and budget, thinking outside of the box can feel like it will take too much time, energy, or work. However, sometimes meal planning is possible and easy by using just what you have in your refrigerator, freezer, and pantry. Try these suggestions.

Values and Intuitive eating: Can they help me stop dieting and make peace with food?

Do you constantly diet, feel super motivated and suddenly — out of nowhere —  comes a craving?  You give in to it and your resolve is gone. “I cheated” say those voices in your head,  feel like a failure – so what the heck? I might as well eat more and worry about it later.”

If you value yourself — and authentic health and happiness — than starving, bingeing, and over-exercising certainly seems to go against those values.

 

What are values?

Values are the core aspect of who we are as people. We drive our kids to soccer and attend all their baseball games because family is a core value. We spend hours cramming for an exam because we know deep in our hearts that we value education and want to attend a good college. We get out of bed to earn a living because we value being a productive member of society. Our actions are all driven by the values we hold near and dear.

What is Intuitive Eating?

Intuitive Eating is the most effective and lasting nutritional approach to your health.

Intuitive Eating is a method that teaches you to eat when you are hungry and stop when you are comfortably full.

Intuitive Eating helps you integrate the messages of your body with your thoughts and behaviors and ultimately puts YOU in charge of your body and its health.

Research consistently shows that diets do not work, but the problem is we live in a world where our entire perception of health and fitness is molded by a diet mindset. Many of us reach the point where we are done with obsessing about what, how much, and when to eat each meal and snack. We know there must be a better way, but walking away from dieting means letting of many pre-conceived “truths”, and intuitive eating can feel radical!

Learning to eat intuitively neutralizes foods so there are no “good” or “bad” foods. You get to decide if, when and how much of that cake, piece of chicken or chips you will enjoy. When you first allow yourself the freedom to eat without guilt, your choices may skew towards heavier and more “fun” or “play” foods — that is okay and totally normal. You cannot learn to eat intuitively without neutralizing all foods.

Intuitive eating helps people rid themselves of the diet mentality by learning to distinguish between physical and emotional feelings, trust their own inner wisdom, and ultimately make peace with food and discover true satisfaction in eating.
