What can meal planning do for you?
Increase your nutrients and healthy food! Most quick and convenient foods lack the balance (mostly fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains) that your body craves. Planning these items in is crucial because when left to chance it is not likely to happen.
Without a plan, the hustle of daily life may lead to missing meals or snacks. This may bring about fatigue, irritability, food cravings, headaches, and other signs your body needs fuel.

Meal planning will help your children know when to expect regular meals, which allows them to eat when they are hungry which will help them navigate correct portions.

Preparing a nutritious meal for yourself is an excellent way to practice self care. Taking the time to prepare a meal at home can increase the satisfaction of the meal.
Make your kitchen into a place that you would like to spend time. Make an effort to keep it clean, decorate it in ways that bring you joy, fix up the lighting to make it a bright space, and stock it with tools that make cooking easier.
When meal planning try to think of a plan “B” with some easy to through together foods in case plan “A” doesn’t pan out. Breakfast for dinner is a great plan “B” meal that is usually on hand.
Beat the burn out! Try not to plan a different meal every day. If you are used to eating out regularly slowly integrate cooking at home. A good goal is to start with 3 meals a week. Keep track of recipes that work for you and try to limit new recipes to 1 per week to keep it manageable.
