Meal Planning

How much time and energy do you spend figuring out what to eat, or contemplating the soggy mess that used to be greens?

 

A structured, done-in-advance meal plan solves so many problems, it’s stupid. In fact, it’s 99% of the reason people love cleanses and other super-structured diets: NO THINKING. Thinking is hard.

 

If you’re feeding a large family, have kids that hate healthy food – or if YOU hate healthy food, this is probably not for you.

 

If you don’t cook your own meals, and don’t plan on starting now, this is probably not for you.

 

But if you DO cook, and want to eat healthy (and tasty) without all the fuss, then…you complete us (tear).

TO WRITE A WEEKLY MEAL PLAN, HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

 

  • Dust off your old cookbooks, and scour the interwebs for recipes
  • Pick out four to six recipes you’d like to make
  • Re-size them for one to two people (booooo, math)
  • Make a list of all the ingredients you’ll need
  • Check your whole pantry and fridge for the ones you already have
  • Wander around the grocery store, all wide-eyed like Dorothy in Munchkinland, saying things like, “what the f*ck is coriander?” and, “is it possible to just get THREE green beans?”

 

This would take you about two hours each week – more if you’re on a restricted diet, at a loss for good recipe sources, or just culinarily challenged. (That’s probably not a word. Just go with it.)
