How To Eat Healthy When You Live With Your Parents

Kids: follow this 1 simple tip

On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, we share one simple tip on how to eat healthy when you live with your parents.

This is another great episode from our #WayBackWednesday series, where we highlight the best questions from previous episodes of our #AskLiveLeanTV Q&A show.

This question is from #AskLiveLeanTV Ep. 002.

How To Eat Healthy When You Live With Your Parents

@FemkePointl on twitter ask: how can I get healthy while I still live at home. My mom cooks since I go to college, therefore I don’t have much time.

In other words, how can you Live Lean, if you still live at home, and your parents cook all of your food?

So since you’re in college, we’ll assume you’re on a budget.

But if you’re living at home, and your parents do all the cooking, that’s actually pretty awesome.

We say that because many college students, who live on their own, are stuck eating top ramen.

But we get it

It can be hard to eat healthy with certain types of parents.

Of course we love our mom, but it’s usually in a mother’s caring nature, to fill their kids up with delicious, but often, high carbohydrate foods.

Best Carbohydrates to Live Lean

Especially since most mom’s are busy, on a budget, and dealing with kids who are picky eaters.

So here are a few ways tips on how to eat healthy when you live with your parents.

How to eat healthy when you live with your parents

Tip #1: Share your goals with your parents

Depending on your relationship with your parents, have a heart to heart talk with them.

Hopefully they will be cool with understanding that you want to eat a certain way.

Tip #2: Share the responsibility of meal planning and preparation

You can do this by preparing some of your own meals.

Unless your parents are really against it, as a college student, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t learn how to cook and prepare your own meals.

Do this by taking turns with the meal planning and cooking.

One night, your parents can cook dinner, then you can cook dinner the next night.

This is a great way to show your parents the difference.

If you’re looking for healthy recipes, we have over 200 step-by-step recipes and follow along cooking videos at Team Live Lean.

Follow one of those healthy recipes and proof to your parents that you can re-create the traditional meals that everyone loves, while using real, whole ingredients, to make it taste delicious.

We’ll put that challenge out to you, because it truly is the best tip

Just because you are Living Lean, it doesn’t mean you have to eat different meals than “normal” people.

Our goal is for Living Lean to become the new “normal”.

Just because you may have old traditions in the family, it doesn’t mean it has to stay that way.
