The biggest excuse that I hear about why you can’t eat healthy is that you don’t have enough time. Sound familiar?
While it may be true that your time feels limited, you actually have the same number of hours in the day as everyone else. What’s different is what you prioritize and where you choose to spend your time.
Now, don’t get me wrong – if there is something I can do to reduce the amount of time spent preparing healthy meals – I will do it.
Here’s one strategy that works for me:
You don’t need a recipe to create a healthy meal.
Looking up recipes takes time, choosing a recipe takes time, making sure you have the ingredients takes time and then choosing another recipe if you don’t takes time.
I want you to know that it is possible to eat real, whole, unprocessed, nutrient dense food that not only tastes delicious, but can be prepared in next to no time with virtually zero culinary talent.
Need me to elaborate? Check out these 12 meal & snack ideas that are recipe-free.
Now I would love to hear from you! What is one healthy meal or snack that you make without a recipe and saves you time in the kitchen? Leave a comment below and I’ll be back next month with another edition of Doctor as Teacher Tuesday. In the meantime, enjoy all the guest posts in the month of August!

The only thing I would change is the Tuna to Salmon. Too much Mercury in the Tuna
Unfortunately any deep water fish like tuna or salmon are susceptible to mercury contamination. Always good to know if you detox heavy metals easily or if you are an accumulator.
