I am a remedial massage therapist working from my home business. My husband is a FIFO worker on a 2-week rotating roster, so when he was away, I would find cooking for myself difficult. Often tired after a full day of clients, I would reach for quicker options which weren’t always healthy.
The crunch came when I found myself ordering pizza and thought “no – something has to change”. I am often talking to my clients about maintaining a healthy lifestyle, exercising, and being fit for work and fit for life. I needed to practice this for myself too.
The meals I find are just the right size to be satisfying. They are tasty and there is so much to choose from. On days when I know I will finish later, I will often have a dinner meal at lunchtime and then a small meal at dinner time when I have finished for the day.
The weeks my husband is away, Lite n’ Easy is my meal plan of choice. My work is quite physical. So now when I have late clients, I know I can pop my Lite n’ Easy meal in the microwave, feed our dog and cat and then my dinner is ready. No preparation or planning is required and minimal clean-up. It’s heat n’ eat!
Having Lite n’ Easy has meant I am continuing to eat well, feeling healthy and not compromising my time or efficiency. I love it! I feel good and have plenty of energy to do the things I need to do.
Most of the time I order dinners with some of the small meals – these are great for when you don’t need a big meal. I also love the soups.
Even when my husband is home, we find ourselves from time to time going to the freezer for the convenience of a quick tasty meal and he enjoys them also.
