all been there, we’ve started a diet been doing great and then have a late
night and end up eating a packet of biscuits instead of having a proper dinner.
Meal planning can help you overcome this issue by ensuring you always know what
you’re having for dinner and have options that are quick to rustle up and stop
you snacking or indulging in something you’ll regret the next day.
A little add-on to eating healthier is being able to improve the food that you’re eating by planning out well-balanced dinners with the right amounts of veggies, proteins and carbs. If you’re trying to reduce your carb intake or eat less meat, planning can support you with any lifestyle changes. Home-made food is also always full of less calories, salt and fat than ready meals plus choosing your own ingredients makes it easier for you to support local butchers and greengrocers, reducing your impact on the environment.
Having a well-crafted meal plan means you waste less, using ingredients you have in the cupboard, forgotten in the fridge or the freezer. You only end up buying what you need for each meal and not succumbing to the lure of expensive ready meals or items you fancy but don’t really need. Plus you can create meal plans that specifically allow you to use up whatever you have in your cupboards.
