Don’t get discouraged—give yourself a jump start with Beehive Meals.
Most common resolutions—and Beehive Meals solutions
We took a look at the most common New Year’s resolutions and realized, hey! Beehive Meals has a solution for that! If you feel like your motivation has taken a turn for the worst, enlist Beehive Meals to help you get back on track. If one of your New Year’s resolutions matches one below, here are some tips to help recapture your resolve.
1. Loose Weight
Forbes reported that nearly 34 percent of us included weight loss as one of our resolutions this year. Some of the most important habits to help you shed pounds include: hydration, getting enough sleep, eating more protein and veggies, and eating mindfully.
Meal planning is a great way to kickstart eating mindfully. Look at your schedule and be sure you have time to eat a healthy, protein and veggie packed meal. Lean towards the Macro Balanced meals and you can ensure you get enough protein every day. Our meals are designed as a main protein dish, so choose a few veggies to have on the side. Choose cauliflower rice over white rice, zoodles (zucchini noodles) over regular pasta, and, before you know it, you’ll have your protein and veggies in for the day.
While you’re drinking your first eight ounces of water for the day, pop your Beehive Meal into the slow cooker, and you’re well on your way to establishing a habit of eating healthy and helping you lose weight.
One of the biggest reasons people give for not exercising frequently enough is that they don’t have time. We get it — it’s difficult to fit everything into your day. At Beehive Meals, we’re determined to give you the time you need to enjoy life and live it to the fullest. And guess what? That includes exercising.
Choosing a subscription will give you at least 10 meals a month (more if you size up! Leftovers are awesome!) that you don’t have to worry about or spend tons of time in the kitchen preparing. Instead, use your extra thirty minutes to hit the gym or do a workout video at home.
3. Save Money
We’ve all seen the drain groceries have taken on our wallet the past year. It’s getting more and more expensive to feed a family as food prices have increased over the last few years (Remember when a gallon of milk cost less than two dollars? Yeah…neither can we.). With Beehive Meals, you can start saving money every month on your grocery bill.
If you subscribe to Beehive Meals, choosing the regular portion size, you’ll get every serving for $3.48. Compare that to your grocery bill, and you’ll quickly see you can’t make these meals for that price on your own.
Stress and business turn us to eating out, which is also super expensive. If one of your goals is to eat less fast food or save money by eating at home more often, Beehive Meals is a great way to eat delicious food without breaking the bank (or your resolutions!).
4. Spend more time with family
We want to take back family dinner for America. If one of your goals this year was to spend more time with your family, what better place than around the dinner table, sharing a delicious and nutritious meal? There are a gazillion reasons why choosing family dinner is good for you, including: it improves your health, makes you happier, and improves communication within your home.
Choosing freezer meals like ours also saves you time on food prep. You can spend that extra thirty minutes playing a game with your kids, going on a walk with your partner, or simply sitting on your front porch swing to visit with friends and family.
5. Eat healthier meals
Even if you’re not trying to lose weight this year, eating healthier is always a good idea. One of the best ways to form a habit of healthy eating is to plan your meals ahead of time. When you’re not scurrying around trying to figure out what to eat, find the right ingredients, and then prep everything before your family gets hangry, it’s a lot easier to put a healthy meal on the table.
You can take any one of Beehive Meals delicious freezer meals and add a side of veggies or a carb to help fill your family up, and you’ll be winning in the healthier department.
