When I talk with people about meal prepping, they say they don't have the time (I've told you this before). I totally get it - and let me say that meal prep isn't for everyone.

Break the Chain: Stress Eating

Break the Chain: Stress Eating

Stress eating is the ultimate double-whammy: not only does your stress SUCK, but then you carry the guilt - and heavy stomach - from the pizza or ice cream or chocolate cake binge that you used to make it through (speaking from experience here - *wipes hot fudge off her face*).
