    I constantly struggle with making healthy eating and living a lifestyle change. Often times things happen and I don’t meal prep or I eat junk food and there it goes.

    hi, thanks for this. It seems so obvious and yet it’s not something I do: PLAN!! I bet I would waste a lot less food… I’m always at the store wondering if I have such-and-such in the cupboard. Loved the part about “staples” as well. I needed to see this and will try it this week. Thanks again.

    Hi Girls
    Although I love your videos and advice that background music needs to be toned waaaaayyyy down. It is too loud and distracting. As a video editor, trust me, I know. The music gets in the way and pretty soon your viewer goes away. Just a suggestion. Thanks for listening

    Hey there! Love your vibe and advice. As a single mama, my tip to add is to imagine the evolution of one meal to the next. This saves money and time. An example of this is I roast 2 medium sized whole chickens one night, The appendages are then breaded in oatmeal and served with a sauce. The breasts then are shredded and mixed with an aioli, cranberries and spinach for a sandwich mix. Then the carcass is slowcooked with leftover veggies to make a soup. Thanks again for your energy and advice.

    I am pretty much organized and a big fitness nut, l said Sunday would be my prep day, however, that did not happen last week so I did everything Monday and was happy I did. I decided how I would do my lists, I use my AnyList and created a vegetarian list ( foods I need to buy) and veggies/ fruits on hand. I went to Whole Foods and Wal-Mart and found everything I needed.

    We are both in College full-time so preparing meals in advance definitely works. It was great this week to just go in the frig and pick what I needed without having to prep everything.?? and heat up the meals I prepared for the week.

    Eating healthily can be time consuming, however it’s worth it and less consuming with better organization!!

    I have one question, is washing veggies and fruit before you store them in ziplock bags good? I did a couple of times before and my green veggies went bad.

    Thanks!!

      You can definitely wash before bagging- I would just suggest drying them really well (pat down with paper towels) because all of that moisture can speed up the rot process. Sounds like you are on it!

  1. […] Planning is the pinnacle of healthy eating. But sometimes it feels like a drag. My patients have a lot going on in their lives, and spending an hour a week creating a meal plan may seem like more trouble than it’s worth. It’s not. An hour a week will save you time, money, calories, and even a little bit of inner-turmoil in the end. Think of it this way: without a plan, any one of us would choose to go to that not-so-healthy fast food joint when we’re hungry. It doesn’t make you a bad person or incapable of reaching your health goals, it just means you didn’t have a strong enough plan in place that day. If you need more help with meal planning, watch my Meal Planning Made Easy video here. […]
