Planning your meals can actually alleviate a lot of stress in your life. Why? Because now you don’t have to worry about what you’re going to make for breakfast, lunch or more importantly dinner. I don’t know about you, but I find that extremely painful.
So here is what I do and trust me, it works!
Each Saturday I think about my meals for the following week – for example, Monday may look like this-
Breakfast: Egg whites, ½ EZ English Muffin, Coffee and 1 Orange
AM Snack: green smoothie
Lunch: shrimp, salad and pita bread
PM Snack: 1 med apple and 1 oz of almonds
Dinner: Chicken tenders, brown rice and green beans
My shopping list may look like this:
1 large carton of egg whites
Bag of frozen shrimp
pack of pita bread
frozen blueberries and cherries
frozen green beans
organic chicken breasts
The great news ….. I don’t have to think about my meals again for the entire week because I now have everything I need on hand to make all those meals….. WIN – WIN.
