Everyone has those days when you have nothing left in the tank and you think I really can't be Ar$ed with cooking tonight. And it's ok... here are some quick meals you can go to. We call them Can't Be Ar$ed Meals.
This article and graphic was inspired by Belinda M from our Kids Health Quest Membership. Her family has been in lockdown for 7 weeks, and she posted this into our Membership community group.
"What are your go to meals for when you've had enough. Those days/nights where you just can't/won't think about feeding the family? Do you have something you magically create without thinking, or something you always have in the freezer that takes no thought to cook?"
The community lovingly responded and I pulled together the graphic at the top so they could stick it on their fridge. Click here or on the image above to print it.

Go Easy On Yourself
These are really trying times. If you find yourself thinking I don't have time for all the things, it's totally understandable. But here's some things I would love for you to think about:
- Do you really have to do ALL the things?
- What can you LET GO of for a while?
- Can you LOWER THE BAR just a little to make life easier for yourself ?
- Can you ASK FOR HELP?
These are all things I coach mum's on inside our Kids Health Quest Membership because when we are health aware, we quite often make our jobs so much harder for ourself.
Here's a short 6 Minute training I developed for time poor mums - it's called Assertiveness, Asking and Empowerment. Watch the training below.

Want More Help?
If you feel like you're on this health journey alone, and dragging your family along kicking and screaming behind you, then Kids Health Quest is the place for you.
Monica says this:
"Before joining Kids Health Quest, I was already on the journey to better food choices, choosing wholefoods over refined options, reducing processed foods and trying to get more vegetables into my family's diet. The problem was I was on the journey alone, trying to drag my family along for the ride.
Now, my kids and my husband are on the journey with me. My kids have an understanding of which foods are good for their one body for life, and those that aren't. We have conversations about food. We've made changes bit by bit which are now second nature. My husband has watched a documentary with me that struck a chord and made him rethink some of his food choices. Life is not perfect but we are making progress and working together now. "
