Easy Meal Prep #1 Online Grocery Ordering

One of the hidden reasons people cannot make diet changes is that their cravings are so intensely triggerd that they cannot think through how to start. Research shows that either cravings (limbic) or impulse control (prefrontal cortex) can be working but not both. This means that when people enter a grocery store and are subjected to intense triggering, they literally lose the ability to remember what they should be doing. Online ordering is the solution. It is surprising how much easier it is for a household to transition to clean-eating if they are staying out of the grocery store. The beauty of online ordering is that it takes very little time. Less time than waiting through the line at a fast food outlet. Certainly less time than required to sleep off the groggy effects of processed foods. Online ordering systems allow customers to save their lists. Portion sizes are standardized so families can use the same list week after week. Many different varieties of meals can be made from the same ingredients. Clients can set up their lists before you leave your office. Done! Step One completed. The client is already a successful hero!
