Planning Healthy Meals

veggiesPlanning healthy meals can be a wonderful way to lose weight and save money. According to HealthyEating.org, there are several ways to prepare meals for a week ahead. First, you should come up with some ideas. This can be done by looking through your favorite food blogs, culinary websites, magazines, television channels, articles, pictures and of course cookbooks.

From there, consider ways to make these meals easier to cook for you, given the time you have to cook them. This requires a lot of honesty and a lot reflection regarding your schedule. Try not to plan extravagant meals if you come home exhausted. This will only result in a burger, fries, or some sort of fast food resorting out of sheer hunger. Consider snacking on healthy meals while cooking, too. You can cook, for instance, while eating almonds, nuts, pistachios, vegetables, or fruits. These are all options to help you curb your hunger as you cook.

Now that you have ideas and shortcuts, it is time to write up a plan for the week. Give yourself room to bargain by figuring out where you can get cheaper produce, for instance, as opposed to buying everything from one spot. Once you compare prices, which you can do online, you can list the ingredients you will buy from each store.

From there, you can buy the products. It is important to buy “meal staples.” As HealthyEating.org points out, “Adding meal staples to your shopping list makes it easier to create quick meals – bread, pasta, rice, tortillas, beans, cheese, tomatoes, garlic, onions, milk, cereal, etc. Remember, the food you have on hand will determine how healthfully you eat so, choose wisely. “

Remember, you will most likely eat what is in your fridge. So, choose healthy options to increase your chances of eating healthy.

So, create a shopping list that is for your planned meals. However, you should also give yourself room for snacks and cravings. For instance, buy almonds, celery sticks, carrots, apples, pears, and other fruits and vegetables to give yourself healthy option to eat on your daily basis.

Also: look up ways to eliminate unhealthy food choices. For example, instead of drinking soda, try to find a green tea that you enjoy, which actually encourages the metabolism to work more and burn more calories, as opposed to sodas, which cause stomach inflammation, gasses, and weight gain.

In short: the key to planning healthy meals is doing research, reflecting, and being honest with yourself. Be sure to give yourself leeway for bad days, days where you don’t have time or energy to cook, days when you have guests, days when you have surprises that you didn’t see coming like a gathering of family members, friends, or coworkers.
