If cooking isn't an option then try grocery shopping online or buy pre-made salads from the grocery store.

This way, you don't have to worry about making anything and can just take it out of your fridge when you are ready to eat!

  1. Don't worry about perfection! Try cooking with a friend instead of trying to do it alone (and faster!).

This way, you can encourage each other and share tips for healthy cooking.

People who cook with friends tend to eat healthier overall because they are more likely to try the food that their friend is making!

If eating out is unavoidable then choose your options wisely.

Instead of getting a burger or fried chicken sandwich, opt for a salad.

Salad dressings can be high in calories so try to get just vinegar and oil on the side or ask for it this way when you order your food so that you control how much dressing is going onto your meal.

You don't need to eat like a rabbit in order to stay healthy. In fact, you can enjoy delicious food without compromising your physical well-being as long as you make smart choices and cook at home often. When cooking for yourself or with friends, be mindful of the ingredients that go into your meal and try new recipes every now and then if boredom is setting in!
