grocery shopping (including the drive), and another 30 minutes or so actually making dinner.
It's easy to get frustrated over this routine. The two best ways to make healthy, homemade meals during the week are to take a break before starting to cook and to use online grocery to help with meal selection, planning, and grocery deliver.
Take a Breath
Don’t walk in the house after work and immediately start cooking. Take a few minutes to relax and catch your breath. If you immediately start cooking you’ll be completely exhausted (and maybe even cranky) by the time you sit down. Instead, put out some healthy snacks as a first course. After that, you'll be more relaxed while you get dinner on the table and sit down with the people you care about.
