Linda knows that cooking dinner more often would make her healthier and happier. But it feels like so much work for her to make the effort since she lives alone.
Sometimes she manages to throw something healthy together, but other nights she just sits down with a bag of potato chips and calls it a night.
For Linda one of the big obstacles is that when she does make the effort to cook one of her favorite recipes she ends up with way too many leftovers and gets tired of eating the same thing. Often it ends up going to waste.
To solve this Linda has to reexamine her beliefs about what dinner is supposed to look like so that it is less daunting and easier to do on a regular basis.
Wish you had more time to listen to the podcast? I use an app called Overcast (no affiliation) to play back my favorite podcasts at faster speeds, dynamically shortening silences in talk shows so it doesn’t sound weird. It’s pretty rad.
