As a work from home mom, lunch time is usually spent multi-tasking while I enjoy my meal. When I’m out shopping my my local Walmart for weekly groceries, I never forget to swing down the soup aisle to see what Campbell’s has in store for me. They always seem to have simple solutions for mealtime that are delicious and satisfying. With a new year in store, I was excited to find their new line of Campbell’s Well Yes!™ Soups that are made with nutritious ingredients and no artificial colors, flavors, or ingredients. Staying on track with these tasty options will be a breeze this new year.
With a shiny new year in front of me, I’m motivated to get back on track. As a busy mom, running two small businesses from my home office, remembering to take care of myself often comes at the very end of my priorities list. One way I ensure I can clear my mind and get my priorities in order is through my planner. Planning my meals ahead of time has been helpful for me to stay on track and ensure I’m eating throughout the day. Because if I’m being honest here, I often forget to eat until it’s 3PM and my stomach is rumbling.
This DIY Food Journal is made with just a few supplies, most of which I had on hand already (craft hoarder!). To create this, I used the following supplies:
- printer paper (about eight pieces)
- a piece of scrapbook paper
- letter stickers
- a stapler
To start, I simply trimmed my scrapbook paper to the same size as my printer paper.
I folded my scrapbook paper in half and then repeated with each piece of printer paper.
Next I stacked my printer paper on top of my scrapbook paper and used my stapler to secure them together in the middle.
This created a simple notebook.
I used letter stickers on the front to label the notebook.
And from there, I use it as a sort of mini bullet journal to track my food for each day. I prefer to plan my weeks ahead of time. If I don’t have to think about my food for the day, it makes it easier for me to stop working and grab what I set aside rather than to halt what I’m doing and figure out what to do for my meals.
Lately one of my favorite mealtime solutions has been adding Campbell’s Well Yes!™ Tomato Carrot Bisque to my journal ahead of time. It’s full of yummy flavor, has just a touch of cream, and contains two full cups of vegetables.
Later this week, I’ll be enjoying Hearty Lentil with Vegetable Soup which has chickpeas and roasted garlic (yes, please!) and the Sweet Potato Corn Chowder which contains red peppers and wild rice. Each soup is crafted with care and contains purposeful ingredients (I can read and pronounce them all!). Logging these in my food journal always gives me something to look forward to!
