HACK: Cooking and eating healthy doesn’t take much time or money. Sometimes, it is easier to order take out or go out to dinner. It is ok as long as you keep it balanced. Not only is your budget affected but most importantly your health and your family’s health. So make another New Year resolution, that you will be making a simple healthy homemade meal at least once a week. You can do it. I’ll love you for that.
