The new school year is already in full swing and it’s time to get back to some learning activities not only for kids but for adults as well. In the midst of adjusting to the new schedule and reaching destinations on time I always struggle in planning healthy meals.
I am sure many of you have faced the same situation or face it now and then so I did some experiments on my family by planning my own healthy meal plans before sharing it with you all. This time I decided to plan Healthy Back to School Recipes to suit our hectic schedule during work week.
After giving it some thoughts and trying some plans on them finally this meal plan was quite successful with them and I happily repeated this meal plan twice last month. So I decided to share my very own Healthy Back to School Meal Plan.
With this meal plan we ate more at home, we ate healthy and nutritious food, I was much more relaxed mentally and the best part I had my grocery planned accordingly so no last minute worries. Also, this Healthy Back to School Meal Plan helps me in saving some time during the week nights. Since I had this plan handy I did some preps ahead of time to make my weekdays easier. 🙂
I planned this meal keeping the calorie consumption and the shortage of time in mind and hence tried to keep all the three major meals under accepted calories with an average daily requirement of 2000 calories and most importantly I aimed at keeping all the recipes within 30 minutes.
I have included Breakfast ideas, lunch ideas and detailed dinner plans.
Along with the breakfast ideas that are provided in the meal plan include some fruits and almond milk or your choice of vegan milk / regular milk to make it a complete morning meal.
For Mid-Morning Snacks – include smoothies into your diet to keep you hydrated and full till lunch time.
For Evening Snacks include some low fat vegan yogurt, fresh or dry fruits and nuts. You can also opt for hot snacks if desired.
