A lot of people often as me how I stay on track with my heathy eating. Well there’s no special equation, it’s actually quite simple. The first thing you should start doing in meal planning. Now you can meal plan for the week but if that’s too overwhelming then take it one day at a time. After your use to meal planning and can plan a few days in advance then do a quick meal prep…It doesn’t have to be a complete meal prep but defrost your meats, have your ingredients organized and on hand. You can make certain things that you will be eating regularly like protein balls, overnight oats or baked oatmeal. Make them once and enjoy all week!
The next part of being successful in eating healthy is not to feel deprived or like I am missing out on something. I have tried loads of recipes some have been hits and others major fails but I am finding healthy alternatives to my favourite foods. For example tomorrow morning I will be enjoying a carrot muffin for breakfast. This muffin contains no flour and no sugar so I can enjoy it guilt free.
And finally keep it simple. I have to sometimes remind myself of this, just ask my husband lol. The only time a meal plan and healthy eating will be sustainable is if keep it as easy and effortless as possible. To keep your meal plans simple you can either pick your family favourites or google meal plans and sit back and watch all the ones that show up. There’s low carb, bariatric, Keto, THM and many more styles of meal plans.
It’s great for me to tell you all of this but how about I walk you thru what I am eating tomorrow so you can see how simple this is.
