Save your hard-earned money, spend more time on what you love, and enjoy a healthier, less stressed life by changing just one thing in your weekly routine! Meal planning is the change that will help you to lose and keep off those extra pounds, free up hours every week to focus on what you truly value, and save $100s a year in wasted food. You can be the person who achieves their goals instead of just reading about other people achieving theirs. Let’s start tackling yours by taking a deeper look at these amazing benefits of meal planning and let me show you how I can help you achieve them even if you are inexperienced in the kitchen!
You work hard for your money, stop throwing it away
Its garbage day and here you are again, going through the refrigerator clearing out mystery containers and sad looking vegetables. Meal planning is the way to prevent the disappointment of throwing away good food that you purchased with every intention of cooking. By creating a plan for the week, you will shop only for what you need and what you’ll use giving you the satisfaction of knowing your hard work won’t end up on the curb.
Your time is precious, don’t waste it grocery shopping
Even a quick trip to the grocery store can quickly turn into an hour out of your day! Think about the time traveling, the frustration of other clueless shoppers and the long checkout lines that no form of technology seems to fix. Strategically spending time up front planning your meals for the week and preparing a grocery list can ensure you will get in and out of the store as quickly as possible with only one trip. Giving you extra time to use on what’s truly important.
Eat healthier without sacrificing flavor
Whenever I hear someone talk about “eating healthier” somehow this conversation always turns into how they hate boring salads and bland food. When you make a plan, you’re not just choosing what to eat but also how much to make. Achieving your goal of being healthier is easy when you plan for it, and more importantly you don’t have to feel like you’re suffering!
Reduce stress in your life one victory at a time
You have to make decisions all day, the last thing you want to do when you get home is make another decision when asked “What’s for dinner?”. Imagine, instead of panicking at this question you calmly reply “We are having Sweet and Spicy Chicken, fresh roasted vegetables and a side of wild rice. It will take about 45 minutes, when would you like to eat?” Let’s get to meal planning and celebrate these victories every day!
Add excitement to meal time with variety
How many times have you made your 3 go-to recipes just this month? It’s easy to get into a rut when you’re rushed to decide what to cook and are unprepared to try new recipes, ingredients or techniques. With a little preparation and planning you can start building your skills and confidence to try and succeed at new recipes. You don’t have to abandon the recipes you love…but don’t be intimidated to add more!
With a little effort at the start of your week you too can enjoy these benefits of meal planning and eat healthier, free up time and bring down that stress level!
