Eating is so much of a habit, that it’s an automatic process and changing it means changing many habits throughout the day- from what we buy at the grocery store, to how we plan our meals, to what we hand our child to eat while we’re on the phone (oh yeah, I’m totally guilty of that too).
I didn’t write out my meal plans, intro guide, or freezer book because this was *easy* for me! No, I wrote it out because it was so so hard for me to switch gears, and I wanted to make it a little bit easier for those who came after me.
