I believe it was Winston Churchill who wrote, “He who fails to plan, plans to fail.” Well ladies and gentlemen, WE HAVE A PLAN!
One of the most important things that has helped us stay on track in our whole30 eating has been making a meal plan. I cannot stress enough how important it is to have a plan! Granted, we don’t always stick to it to the T, but that’s not the point. Here’s the point: If I have planned out 15 meals for the week that means I have the ingredients in my house for 15 meals. If I end up moving these meals around or pushing them back to another day, fine. But never in this week will I look in the fridge or the pantry and think “there’s nothing good to eat”. There is always something good to eat! I am always prepared and fully stocked and it’s great!
Planning ahead saves all of us such a headache and makes the day flow so much better. I can’t say enough how much I highly recommend planning your meals for the week. Even if you don’t stick with it to the T, that’s okay. The point is not to be handcuffed to the plan, but to be comfortable in it. You know the food is there and ready for you. You are armed for the week. You’re prepared.
If you are wanting to eat healthy, wanting to change your habits, wanting to feel better…. have a plan! Here’s ours:
