Meal Planning

Assistance with meal planning is one of the most common requests that I get from my clients. I am always pleased to see that my clients recognize the importance of meal planning. Planning meals provides a number of benefits. Whether you are cooking for one, for two or for your entire family, taking the time to plan meals will not only save you time, effort and money but will also improve your eating habits.

Here are a few ways you can benefit from planning meals.

1. You Will Eat Healthier

When you plan meals, you can decrease the frequency of eating out, ordering take-out and eating pre-packaged food. Foods that are prepared at home, from whole ingredients, generally provide more nutrition, than take-out and pre-packed foods.

2. You Shop More Efficiently

When you plan meals, you shop for groceries more efficiently. This is because you shop from a list that includes all of the ingredients you need.  This will eliminate those times when you’re in the middle of cooking and you discover that don’t have a necessary ingredient.  Meal planning and grocery shopping with a list also decreases food waste- you will actually be cooking and eating the groceries you purchase.

3. You Save Money

Meal planning and eating at home, saves money. When you are eating out less and shopping for groceries more efficiently, you will save money. Meal planning allows you to plan for leftovers which can be used for lunches or another dinner.

4. You Will Enjoy More Food Variety and Become a Better Cook

Meal planning gives you the opportunity to try new foods and new recipes. This can increase food variety and nutrient intake. It can also expand cooking skills.
