The Benefits of Healthy Meal Planning
First, what is meal planning? Typically, meal planning entails coming up with specific meals to eat for an entire week in advance, and then getting all the ingredients needed in a single shopping trip, and possibly preparing some of those ingredients ahead of time.
1. Look at your schedule for the next week. 2. Decide what days will need very simple solutions (15 minute meals, freezer cooking meals). 3. Choose simple recipes with few ingredients to fill in the dinners. 4. Choose two or 3 options for easy lunches and breakfasts. 5. Create a shopping list of ingredients you will need for your menu. 6. Fill out your menu, indicating a recipe source and a time needed to cook. 7. Post your menu plan on your fridge, or in a schedule book that’s accessible to you every day. 8. Refer to it daily to make sure that you’re following it and that food is thawed from the freezer at the right time (about 2 days before use). 9. Choose pantry meals and post them on the fridge in case you need them.
