Meal planning is beneficial in many ways to the whole family. Besides healthy eating, meal planning saves you from consuming the hidden calories and helps in portion control. Cooking at home with the guidance of proper meal planning turns out to be less expensive and more nutritious because you make your best efforts to serve a balanced nutritious meal on the table to the entire family.
Meal planning facilitates proper written grocery list. When you drive to the store once a week you save on gas, time and energy by making fewer trips to the grocery store. A little time devoted in meal planning saves you lot of time and provides better health in the long run 🙂
Just make conscious efforts to make healthy choices. To help you with your healthy meal planning, I have provided the meal planner in downloadable pdf format. Easy to print it and stick it on your refrigerator or save it on your desktop, whatever works for you. Sometimes, I use extra ordinary combinations in my recipes but that’s what my blog is all about, unique healthy recipes.
I have mentioned some healthy snack ideas here. A detailed dinner plan with recipe links, breakfast and lunch idea also with recipe links in the pdf printable document.
Also don’t forget to read the health tips to stay motivated and in shape 🙂
