Reduce The Stress of Healthy Eating
Planning makes a lot of things in life easier and this also applies to healthy eating. Trying to make healthy meals for all the family can seem like an overwhelming task at times, but setting aside just half an hour during the weekend to plan and prepare your weekly meals can make all the difference.
Planning your meals can be as simple as just selecting the primary component of every meal or specifically picking out particular recipes. Choose a couple of breakfast and lunch options that you can make use of several times during the course of the week. You can also save money by doing an inventory of your fridge and pantry in order to both avoid buying extra goods you do not need and planning meals based on items you already possess such as beans, excess produce and grains.
Another good tip is to prepare produce. Fruit that has been pre-cut makes a simple, tempting and healthy snack. You can also reduce the time needed for your weekly meal preparation by pre-cutting vegetables you make frequent use of, including broccoli, onions, peppers and zucchini.
