Healthy Eating – Dinner
We’ve talked about how to make your breakfast and lunch healthier, but what about dinner? At dinnertime, the whole family is usually together, and there’s not as much of a rush as there is with breakfast. However, it can be difficult finding time to cook a healthy dinner with all of the things you have going on in your life. Kids have after-school activities and sports events, you have to juggle your own social obligations with things like volunteering for school functions, working late, and handling all of those little errands you don’t have time to do during the day.
All of this means that you may be tempted to grab pizza or some burgers for dinner. That’s definitely not very healthy, though. Your other option may be some frozen fish patties or something you can make in the microwave. Again, these meals are usually full of preservatives, sodium, and who knows what else. They are definitely not something you really want to feed your growing kids, and if you’re trying to be healthy, you don’t want it, either.
So what can you do? One option is to use a slow cooker. You can put together your dinner the night before and refrigerate it. Then pull it out, set the slow cooker for low heat, and go to work. When you get home, your healthy dinner will be waiting for you. There are hundreds of different things you can make in a slow cooker.
You can also divide dinner duty. If your spouse gets home first, they can start it and then you can take over when you get home. Your older children can also help. By dividing up tasks, it makes dinner a much more manageable project.
You may also want to start taking an acai berry supplement. Research has shown that a supplement such as the acai berry may be able to provide you with a number of benefits.
