Every Meal is a Choice

Good morning and happy Monday. I must admit, I’m feeling a little sentimental during all the ‘back-to-school’ activity going on. I wish I was back in elementary school, where my only care in the world was whether to wear a khaki or navy skort (thanks, school uniforms!). 😉

Back-to-school throwback! First day of kindergarten.

I wanted to pop in this morning and talk about something that’s been on my mind since last night. Do you have a Sprouts Farmers Market grocery store near you? I’m a huge fan of their inexpensive produce! I follow them on social media, and saw this post on their Instagram last night:

Every breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, dessert, etc. is a choice, and you have the power to decide what you put in your body. Sometimes you might choose the burger and fries, and sometimes you may choose the salmon and kale. Both are okay.

For me, it’s important to be mindful of every choice you make and why you’re choosing it. I’m happy as long as the majority of my choices make me feel good, both physically and spiritually. Most days I make healthy choices because that’s what makes my body happy. But some days, I choose a piece of cake or a giant ice cream because that’s what makes my soul happy. It’s all about balance, right?

Something that really helps me make good choices is prepping my meals in advance. We all have busy schedules, and I’ve found that making my lunch the night before sets me up for success, and helps me avoid a frantic “I’ll eat anything in sight” situation.

Whatever works, right? 🙂

Your Turn-

  • What does ‘mindful eating’ mean to you?
  • Do you prep your meals in advance?

Have a great day, everyone!
