Meal Planning

One of my first suggestions to people trying to lose weight is to start meal planning. There is nothing worse then being hungry and staring into your pantry trying to figure out what to have for dinner. If you can have a plan it makes making healthy choices much easier. Meal planning can seem like a daunting task but really after the first few weeks it gets really simple! We have our go to meals and then every once in a while we add a new recipe to the plan. We never spend more then 20 minutes prepping dinner when before we would spend 20 minutes arguing about what we should eat. We typically meal plan for 4 meals a week and then we always have simple meals on hand that can work for the other days, or we have other plans for dinner. Below is a picture of our meal plan for the week. I try to do as much ahead of time as I can that way at the end of the day everything is simple to put together.

I hope this example shows you that it really can be simple! Our lunches, breakfasts, and snacks are very similar each week and the only thing that changes are the dinners. Let us see a picture of your meal plan for the week!
