Eating Healthy During Uncontested Divorce

Posted By Attorney Jim Cairns || 9-Apr-2013

Stress during an uncontested divorce can leave you feeling fatigued and not wanting to cook your meals. Eating junk food at the nearest fast food restaurant will not help your energy levels as well nor your health. Instead, try out some of these easy action steps you can take to get a handle on your diet.

A variety of online food organizers are available. Many of them are free and can be accessed through a mobile phone. Organizing what you cook and your food purchases can save you time and money, not to mention improve your "post married life" eating habits.

If you are looking for a quick and easy way to organize your shopping list, you may want to ask your grocery store if they offer a free phone application (app) for their customers. The Wegman's grocery store app offers a custom-made list based on your past purchases or you can make a shopping list by clicking on their online recipes. Product bar codes can also be scanned into your mobile phone and so you will know your total cost before going to the check out counter.

A variety of features are available with recipe organizers, though not all of them offer the same features. Some of the features include creating shopping lists straight from your recipes. There are even organizers which will help you shop quicker by listing which items you will need from each aisle in the store.

Kitchen Daily is a fun website to visit. Recipes are laid out for an entire week. Click on the day, for example Thursday, and you will get recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Some of the recipes also have nutrition information. Furthermore, you can use social media i.e., Facebook and Pinterest to share your favorites.

With Kitchen Monki you can search for recipes and then print out the recipe and an accompanying shopping list. If you don't want to print the list, there is also have an app called Monki Mobile. While in the store you can pull up recipes, a menu planner, and your grocery list amongst other features.

Epicurious is a site which offers a variety of help with your meal making tasks. There are featured recipes of the day and holiday recipes. In addition, videos are available to take you through a recipe with step-by-step directions. Some of the additional resources include: seasonal ingredients, podcasts and wine pairings.

If you're in the mood to be creative or you're looking for an original gift idea, you may want to consider cookbook software. Creating a family cookbook is a great legacy gift to pass on to children and grandchildren. Try to get a free trial before making the financial investment in cookbook software. There is also free cookbook software on the internet, as well.

Managing your food consumption doesn't have to be time consuming and doesn't require a lot of knowledge about food or cooking. There is a plethora of food websites and software programs which can help reduce stress during an uncontested divorce and keep you and your loved ones healthy.
