Tip: 5 Easy Ways to Maintain a Healthy Meal Plan During the Week

This year, I am getting a lot of things back on track including my meal plan!  As you know, I have a food blog that keeps me busy with events out and about almost every day.  Recently, I decided to scale back because I want to take care of myself better, and eat better too!  That means a lot more eating at home and making sure that I have a well-thought out plan.

Today, I have five simple tips that will help you keep your meal plan on track, even if you are a busy bee like me!

Five Easy Ways to Maintain a Healthy Meal Plan During the Week

1.  Meal Plan!

A plan isn't a plan until you write it down.  Scout out recipes that you want to eat during the week that fit into your goals.  Plan out every breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack for the week.  Then, go ahead and write down all the ingredients you need, so you are fully stocked up at home with everything you need!  A bonus is that you will not be tempted to overbuy or pick up something extra, if you stick to your list.


2. Schedule "Off" Days
