The moment I discovered the words “ food preparation is key”, I discovered the best physical shape and health of my life.
Food preparation at home isn’t the most glamorous chore as it can be very time consuming and can take up most of your day. However, without prepared food for the week we are setting up our health for failure. So, what we do know is that healthy food is the key to an amazing body and overall good health. But who has the time? In a busy lifestyle we all want and need to be doing other things, like spending time with the kids or having the time to really enjoy your hobby.
When you add it all up, it takes a couple of hours to get to and from the supermarket, pick all the food, get in line and pay, and then cart your groceries home. We want an easier life, to be more and do more with often as little amount of effort as possible.
Doing things with the least amount of effort is maybe something that is pre-programmed into our brains. A study by Danial Kahneman found that our brains were programmed to search for the most economical form of action to getting things done.
“A general “law of least effort” applies to cognitive as well as physical exertion. The law asserts that if there are several ways of achieving the same goal, people will eventually gravitate to the least demanding course of action. In the economy of action, effort is a cost, and the acquisition of skill is driven by the balance of benefits and costs. Laziness is built deep into our nature.”
So don’t think you are alone when it comes to disliking meal preparation, most people dislike it or simply struggle to find the time within their busy week. Even the most popular fitness gurus, who spend countless hours and weekends taking amazing Instagram pictures of their meal preparation, usually struggle to always find the time. Often we are pre-occupied, with social or work commitments, so then any type of meal preparation just takes up too much valuable time. If we do find the time, there is also the issue of what to cook that often drives us crazy!
Would we be eating fast food so much if it were not convenient? Fast food restaurants such as McDonalds definitely meet the parameters of connecting with the law of least effort. It always has and it always will. Open 24 hours with a drive through, now you can order while in the cue and even design your own meals. Even though fast food is bad for our health it’s getting easier and faster to just grab and go.
However, an amazing body and good health comes with being consistent with a healthy diet. Enjoying good health gives you the chance to live a balanced life where bad food isn’t bad.
My gratitude goes out to businesses, such as Lite’n’Easy, who have influenced people in seeing the benefit of ordering online and saving time.
It wasn’t as simple, especially 10-15 years ago. We weren’t accustomed to ordering online and eating healthy food on the go but today so much has changed. We have now been primed with this convenience within our lifestyle so we are able to save time and money, and people are now wanting more!
