Making Meals Easy
Who loves to know they have a meal plan and it’s going to be easy? I do. I bet you do too.
We all need to eat, but whether our goal is eating healthy or not, we need a plan or we’re in trouble. When we don’t have a plan, we either end up going without until we are starving and overeating or grabbing fast food, or maybe end up skipping meals and eating snacks that leave us feeling unnourished.
If you’d like ideas for more healthy options, while making it easy and exploring how to add in some variety, we want to highlight some great video resources available to you online through the WFM Medical Center website.
On the medical center website, we have a number of videos to inspire your culinary efforts or hopes to limit them as much as possible.
Let’s run you through some of the cooking videos you have available for your inspiration along with the links to check them out:
The “I Hate Cooking” Series:
