Meal Planning for the New Year

January 4, 2017 | posted in: Fitness Tip of the Week, Nutrition | by

Whether you have specific New Year’s resolutions or not, we can all improve our eating habits. The best way to improve is by eating at home and cooking healthy meals with fresh ingredients. That’s usually easier said than done. It takes planning and preparation time each week.

What I recommend is to pick one day a week to do meal planning, shopping and preparation. It is helpful to have as much food prepped at the beginning of the week as possible, meaning chopping up veggies or even pre-cooking meals that you simply need to heat up. I have chosen Sunday as my food prep day, so that is when I cut up veggies for snacks, make a salad or soup for the week, etc.

Here are some great ideas for how to start or improve your weekly meal planning:

However, cooking for an entire week takes a lot of time, and dishes ;) I also supplement my home meals by ordering healthy food delivery. If you are in the San Diego area, I recommend Turning Point Nutrition as a healthy and yummy food delivery option.

Good luck starting or improving your healthy eating habits! As always, contact me with any questions.

Healthy, happy living!
