This week’s challenge will save you $$$, help you feel more energized, fuel your body with higher quality nutrients… and also might help you lose a few pounds!

Are you ready for it!?

This week…. For the ENTIRE WEEK…. Your challenge is to eat at home (and bring your lunch to work)!  The key to this challenge is plan and prepare.   This may seem like a lot of work- but it’s doesn’t have to be.  Plus- it’s extremely liberating to know that you’ve always got healthy food in the fridge, and you don’t have to figure out what your next meal is going to be.

Here are some things to keep in mind:

1. It is not all about money, but eating homemade meals does cost less. For the amount of cash you spend on a single meal at a restaurant, you can buy enough ingredients to prepare several meals at home.

2. When you prepare food at home, you know exactly what’s IN it.  Most of the time, meals out are carb-heavy, and soaked in unhealthy oils and fats.  You really never know what you’re eating when you eat out!

3. Cooking and eating at home is a great way to spend time with your family…. This creates great memories and builds stronger relationships at home.

And remember- this DOESN’T have to be time consuming.  You can make something amazing at home in less than 20 minutes!!  You’re just a Google search away from some healthy, easy, and incredibly delicious home-cooked recipes!
