Meal planning is one of the best ways to make sure you are eating healthy on a day to day basis. Not only does planning meals allow you to examine your food-group and nutrient intake, but it gives you a really good idea of the foods you will require over the next week – making the next grocery shop a breeze. Planning and preparing meals beforehand also helps you avoid the draw of a quick bite from your local fast food chain…it is much easier to make the healthy and cheap choice when you have a great lunch you have prepared yourself available. All thats left is to decide what to do with all that extra energy and money!
