Eating should be an enjoyable experience. You want to stay organized and implement healthy meal plans for yourself and your family– but all too often, you find that eating turns into a source of stress, expense, and guilt. You ate too much; you ate the wrong things; you didn’t have a plan and so you and your family ended up at a restaurant, paying far too much for fattening, salty, processed food.
Well, you’ve come to the right place. Take back control of you and your loved ones’ well-being and nutrition by learning how to apply healthy eating guidelines and put together simple, low-carb meal plans that don’t break the bank and don’t take forever to prepare.
Food shouldn’t come in a box or a shrink-wrapped plastic tray that was shipped halfway around the world. Your meals should rely on fresh, locally-grown things that are chock full of nutrition and flavor. They shouldn’t include two dozen ingredients. The best meals are simple, straightforward, and elegant; full of color and life– not dull and heavy. Nor should your meals feel austere and restrictive! There’s nothing wrong with dessert, as long as it’s made with wholesome, naturally sweet ingredients, not processed sugar and artificial flavors.
If you find yourself getting very excited about this new way of living and eating, yet feeling frustrated because you don’t know where to start, never fear– devising healthy meal plans can be a simple, step-by-step process. Follow it, and you will never again be stressed out by food. It starts with the weekly shopping list. Once you have a weekly plan, then you can do the things you’ve always wanted to do when it comes to food: control costs, buy locally, and eat healthy.
The shopping list will have on it all the ingredients needed for seven breakfasts, seven lunches, seven dinners, seven snacks, and seven desserts for every member of your family. One day per week, you’ll spend a couple of hours cooking some things which take longer than you’d want to spend making a meal on a weekday. Let’s say that this week, you roast a turkey. You have roast turkey tonight, and then a few days from now, you can have turkey stir fry… or quick and delicious turkey soup… or a hearty turkey casserole. The hard work is done, and it’s not a case of frantically searching the fridge for leftovers you can feed the family tonight… you’re working to a plan, and stress is a thing of the past.
Sounds terrific, doesn’t it?
