Hello friends! I’ve been posting for the past few weeks about choosing Always Eat After 7pm, what I like most about the book and information about the author, and how I’ve been doing with my nutrition goals and new goals I’ve come up with. Today I’ll be sharing with you my overall thoughts and how I plan to continue reaching my goals!
Using Always Eat After 7pm for a Month
I started the year off with good meal habits, but as everything changed over the past few months I found my mealtimes and cooking habits changing too. It was harder to find the time to cook consistently, and I was always reaching for easy snacks that saved me lots of time but made me feel horrible (eating an entire bag of Goldfish crackers…).
Always Eat After 7pm has been so helpful in giving me new recipe ideas, information about mealtimes, and the kinds of snacks that are easy to make, budget-friendly, and that will keep my energy up throughout the whole day or promote restful sleep.
Over the past month or so I’ve been eating on a much more regular schedule and incorporating variety into my meals! Something I’m still working on is meal prep and having easy to make meals on hand for when life situations come up so that I’m not unprepared or just snacking all day (this has happened to me a few times so far in June so I ended up adding it last week as a new goal). The book goes into a few different ways you can meal prep, and here are the two that I plan to try as my schedule changes to see what works best:
- “With the weekly option, you might spend time on Sunday (or a day when you have lots of spare time) doing all your major cooking for the week—cutting veggies for salads and placing them in containers, cooking Super Carbs so they can be reheated, hard-boiling eggs, baking or roasting proteins, and/or making desserts. You’d then store the prepped food in the fridge to be quickly assembled into meals and reheated.
The twice-weekly option is very similar, with the exception that you prep and cook twice a week (once at the beginning of the week and then again midweek). I like this option best because it’s still highly convenient and you can enjoy fresher food from Thursday to Saturday”
One of my main goals other than balanced mealtimes was balanced meals in terms of the types of foods I was eating, and Always Eat After 7pm had so much helpful information for this! And all of the food suggestions had options that fit a wide variety of dietary needs too which is always wonderful to see!
I plan to keep using recipes and nutrition information from Always Eat After 7pm as I continue with my goals and adjust them based on what I’m noticing (I’ve wanted more daytime energy and better sleep at the moment). The book makes learning about nutrition easy and eliminates 90% of the reasons to revert back to old habits (which is definitely something I’ve done a lot in the past). The book also recommends eating at times when you’re most hungry and explains what kinds of foods to eat at those times, which takes out all of the guesswork!
