How many times do you go to the grocery store in a week? 3? 5? More? Only to get home and look around your kitchen wondering what you’re going to make for dinner.
It’s a bad feeling. It’s the kind of feeling that makes you wonder why you even try to cook and instead pushes you to just put a frozen pizza in the oven or buy everyone a giant container of chicken nuggets on the way home.
But deep inside, you want to do better. You’d love to see your children eating balanced meals at night. And heck–you might actually like something healthy from time to time too. But you’re tired, burned out and may not be the most confident cook on the block.
Did you know that having the basics on hand can boost your ability to put a hot meal on the table at night with less frustration and struggle? It will be healthier and it will cost you a lot less than those nuggets you were going to buy and you can be proud of yourself for making it.
