Do you plan it or wing it? One of my amazing sisters (in-law) says ‘failure to plan is planning to fail’ … or something like that. I think she rocks at the whole planning thing, even with three kids. I kinda stink at this. Truly, I do.
So I dare to ask you this question: Do you prepare your food in advance? If by chance, you do, then you probably know this: It is far easier to reach your nutrition goals when you plan your diet. If you don’t, that’s fine too, but it means you surely have to plan well for the week that lurks ahead.
When you do not plan in advance, you are far more likely to snatch unhealthy meals, hit up the fast food drive-thru or gulp vending machine snacks ‘on the go’. Sound familiar? It’s okay, you don’t have to raise your hand.
So many people, busy hard working people, choose those easy options at lunch or breakfast, instead of devouring the good stuff, that nutritious fuel, that will help them reach their goals. Not to mention, the financial benefit. I assure you it is usually more cost effective to plan and prepare your own meals as opposed to Starbucks for breakfast and Burger King for lunch. (or Dominoes for dinner, just sayin’)
So, start prepping some of your meals during the weekend when you have more time, it’ll take out the guesswork of what to eat … and benefit you in a huge way. Try it, I dare you.
As always, make champion choices,

I don’t prepare food for the whole week because the food tends to dry out a bit and I don’t like it as much, but I do buy lots of fresh, cut-up veggies and make extra of our healthy dinners to have for lunch at work the next day. When I am home for lunch, I have healthy options around to prepare. And I do make homemade protein bars that the whole family enjoys for snacks!
