In my opinion, one of the most difficult things about eating healthy and sticking to your New Year's goals is figuring out what to eat day in and day out. At the beginning most of us our excited and motivated. We are searching for healthy recipes online, excited to try out new products at the grocery store, and planning out what we are going to eat. Then a few weeks pass and suddenly we are staring at an empty fridge at 6:00 PM trying to figure out what in the world to eat. And in that moment, it's when we are most likely to slip into our old habits and grab a pizza, take-out, or some type of not so good for you, convenience food. My personal nemesis was frozen Mexican food.
To overcome those days having a meal plan can make all the difference. Not only does it make things easier, it means that you never have to worry about what's for dinner after a long day of work. Everything is already in your fridge, ready to be whipped into a quick and easy healthy meal. Plus as an added incentive, I find I stick to my meals even more when I have already purchased all the ingredients since I don't want to waste the food that I already bought. Win-win.
With that in mind, today I wanted to share some sample daily menus from this week's meal plan as inspiration. Whether this inspires you to try out our healthy, low carb, and vegetarian meals plans or start building your own - I hope it will motivate you to give meal planning a try. It's a game changer that makes healthy eating easier, stress-free, and delicious!
