  • Hey, I'm Keri Glassman, here are some quick and simple tips to help you feel just a little bit better.

  • Youve been told so many times about the benefits of cooking your own meals

  • that I’m not going to pretend like this is some new piece of advice. But what can I say?

  • When something so simple can make such a difference in so many aspects of your life, I can’t ignore it!

  • Consider this: Cooking more often --it doesn’t have to be every single meal

  • means that youre eating healthier, you're saving money, and you're spending more time probably with your family and friends.

  • And it can actually be fun. Some people even consider cooking, we know, a hobby!

  • Hopefully you didn’t stop watching earlier when I referred to cooking meals assimple.”

  • I know what youre thinking: “Are you crazy?

  • I use my fridge to store sweaters! I don't cook!”

  • Making your own meals doesn’t have to be this complex, super involved process. Here's my advice: Choose 8-10 foods that you love.

  • Make sure to include at least one veggie, one healthy fat, a whole grain and a lean protein.

  • Then, choose 3 to 4 fast, easy meals you know you can make. They don’t have to look pretty.

  • Finally, make a deal with yourself.

  • Always have the list of foods on hand and perfect making those 3 to 4 meals with those 8 to 10 foods.

  • They will quickly turn into staple, go-to meals and perhaps even your signature dish.

  • So remember: Cooking your own meals doesn’t require becoming the next Top Chef. And with the money you save, the

  • healthier food your family is eating, and the extra time youre spending with loved ones,

  • youll feel just a little bit better.
