How to Put Your Healthstyle Back Together After Having a Baby

by | Jan 30, 2017

Rachel knew that having a baby would make it harder to maintain her healthstyle. But it’s now been 18 months and she still hasn’t found a way to regularly make the best choices and ends up eating out 2-3 nights per week.

Her issue is that her old healthstyle––which she loved––required an amount of time and energy that simply aren’t realistic for her anymore. She and her husband love to cook elaborate meals, but trying to fit it into their new baby life just isn’t working.

We also identify a few other invisible barriers that are blocking Rachel from fully utilizing her tiny New York kitchen. Subtle barriers can derail any well-intentioned healthstyle, but when you’re exhausted and every single part of your life feels new and overwhelming, identifying and eliminating those barriers is extra hard.

Together, Rachel and I come up with a few ways to simply her meals and make weekday cooking more practical.

  1. Awesome podcast, Darya! I totally love your batch-cooking concept and being a new mom myself, I am totally trying this out. We always have fresh food at home and I have a habit of going to the market every couple of days to stock up on fruit & veggies. This is kind of a standard here in Europe as you can just walk 15 minutes by foot and have your daily walk as well. I live in Munich Germany and there is a growing trend here to order the so called “cook boxes”. You choose your recipe and they deliver a box with all ingredients, ready-to-cook. Is this also popular in the US? I think this is one great solution for moms and any other people who simply don’t have the time to shop, plan and cook but still want to stay on the healthy side.
    Anyways, thanks for the ingredients batch-cooking idea, I am totally trying this out.

  2. You are probably right even though this service is not more expensive than take away, at least not over here.
