If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you know that I dislike the idea of “convenience” when it comes to life and motherhood. We are prompted to constantly chase and seek out what is “convenient” when it comes to parenting, life, daily routine, and even food. And it’s such a lie. There aren’t many convenient things that are healthy or genuinely help us. Convenient foods are typically fast food or prepackaged. They contain all sorts of ingredients that are meant to support production speed and shelf life of the “food” and not support our bodies.
How much does convenience factor into your food choices? Do you spend a lot of time looking for a quick fix? Write about how much convenience is influencing your daily food choices and if it is indeed serving you and your family. Be specific. Note if you’d like to see this trend continue or change for your family.
Bonus: Brainstorm about how you can work food planning into your daily routine so that you are always prepared and don’t have to rely on last minute food choices when you and the kids are beyond hungry.
