I remember when I first felt like I hit my breaking point when it came to preparing food AND trying to eat healthy and lose weight.
I was always waiting too long to start dinner, so I’d opt for easy convenience foods instead of healthier options.
My health seemed to be declining. My thyroid was out of whack and my blood pressure was climbing. My weight was also inching up year after year.
I couldn’t seem to stay on track with any eating plan because I was so busy all the time.
When I did stick to an eating plan, it felt like I was thinking about food ALL DAY. EVERY DAY.
I didn’t have time to think about food all the time, whether it was healthy food or non healthy food.
I just needed to eat and I needed to accomplish what feels like a thousand other things in a day.
My day would turn busy and I would end up grabbing anything that would feed me and my family a quick dinner with little effort, no longer caring about the results it was having on my body.
I was depressed and looking down on myself, always thinking tomorrow I would do better.
But tomorrow only came occasionally and not consistently. Because it was too much work to think it all through.
But now, I figured out a better way.
There’s no need for me to feel so helpless.
I finally decided that it had to get better. We had to fix this problem.
And so…after many people asked me to create it, I decided to upgrade the Freezer to Slow Cooker Meal Plan and make the Low Carb Freezer to Slow Cooker Meal Plan (with Instant Pot Instructions, too)!!
