Meal Planning Strategies

Interested in better meal planning techniques? Here are some suggestions to get you started.

  • Choose one designated date and time each week to plan meals before shopping. This will ensure you buy the proper ingredients for your meals.
  • Make sure each meal includes protein, carbs, fats and fiber.
  • Prep some foods in advance to save time during the week. You can go as far as cooking everything, or simply chopping your veggies in advance.
  • Cook from scratch when you can. This will result in more vitamins and less sodium in your meals.

Most people don’t eat enough non-starchy vegetables so try to bulk up your meals with these foods

  • asparagus
  • carrots
  • zucchini
  • broccoli
  • green beans
  • spinach
  • salad green
  • peppers
  • onions
  • brussel sprouts

 

And don’t forget, you can enjoy all of your favorite foods still! Just make them healthier by adding vegetables and controlling portion sizes!
