We now live in a world of ultimate convenience. The ability to shop online for groceries, have full meals delivered, and get takeout on every corner means you no longer need to figure out what you’ll be eating far in advance.
However, planning your menu will save you time and money, not to mention support a healthy lifestyle or even help with weight loss.
Don’t panic! Meal planning doesn’t need to involve elaborate recipes. It doesn’t even mean you have to cook each dinner from scratch.
Here is some guidance on setting up and using a meal plan.
You may feel overwhelmed the first time you put together a meal plan. Remember, you don’t have to start with a weekly menu. Instead, you can begin with a day or a weekend until you get the hang of it.
There are three main components for planning.
Get started with meal prep ideas by answering these questions:
How often have you walked into your kitchen at dinner time, and opened the refrigerator door, only to find you don’t have the right ingredients to make a meal to satisfy you or your family? No wonder you decide to pick up the phone to have pizza delivered, even though you know it’s not the best choice.
If you can plan for 30 minutes on Sunday night and know what your meals will be in advance, it will save you stress and valuable time.
Yes, prices are increasing everywhere, but eating out and getting delivery is still more expensive than preparing your own meals. Creating a weekly meal plan will keep more of your hard-earned money in your pocket.
Making food choices in advance has been shown to better control portions and reduce the temptation to eat unhealthy foods. Additional research supports the benefits of meal planning with food variety, diet quality, and a healthy weight.
If getting meal prep ideas is difficult, you won’t do it. Here’s where to begin (and it will get easier):
Ask yourself if you are focused on increasing healthy options, decreasing sugar, saving money, fueling your fitness goals, or something else.
A combination of exercise and diet is needed to meet your goals. And never underestimate how much you will benefit from being under the guidance of a professional coach. After all, no matter how much you exercise, you can’t continue to eat nachos, high-sugar treats, and cheeseburgers and get in better shape.
The total number of meals you plan may vary from week to week (or even day to day). You might want to plan every morsel you eat or just dinners.
When selecting recipes, be mindful of your goals, cooking skills, and time. Plenty of websites have quick and easy ideas with just a few ingredients.
For example, a meal planning template for building muscle should include a good amount of protein with fewer carbohydrates. Protein is vital for muscle development, as long as you don’t overdo it.
A muscle-building sample meal might include:
Write down the ingredients you’ll need for each recipe. Then, before your shop, check your kitchen cupboards. You may already have some of the items you need.
With meal preparation, the objective is to precut and maybe pre-cook batches of ingredients. This will make everything easier throughout the week.
Since you have already planned what to make and prepped the ingredients, cooking will be quick.
One of the essential parts of meal planning is staying accountable. However, that doesn’t mean someone has to stand over your shoulder to ensure you stick to your meal plan. Instead, a fitness professional or coach monitoring your food choices and progress will help your journey.
