WHY MEAL PLANNING IS SO IMPORTANT, ESPECIALLY ON A VEGAN DIET.

Meal planning makes a big difference when it comes to sticking to a dietary change. It’s easy to cook a quick convenience food or head to a restaurant when everyone is hungry and nothing is defrosted, but a little planning can prevent this!


If you have kids, you can let them be involved in the planning as well, which will help them get excited about the healthy foods you are cooking and be more willing to try them. 


Let PlantFit Nutrition customize your meal plan for you and get you started on your plant powered journey today!


WHY MEAL PLANNING IS SO IMPORTANT:


  • It will save you a ton of money.
  • It allows you to control exactly what’s in your food.
  • Making dinners at home means you’ll always have lunch ready for the next day.
  • You can control the serving size of your meals.
  • When you have a meal plan and groceries in the fridge, eating healthy is a breeze!
  • A good plan saves time and energy.
  • You can cover all your nutritional bases by including a variety of foods.
  • It’s much easier to cook at home without dairy, meat and eggs than it is to avoid them in restaurants.
  • It makes weight loss or maintenance manageable and realistic.
  • You can discover wonderful new foods and recipes.
  • It helps establish a love of eating well!
  • It helps eliminate “what to eat” stress during the week.


TIPS FOR SUCCESS: 

  • Eat smoothie, chia puddings overnight oats or oatmeal for breakfast 
  • Stick to basics for snacking - fruit, nuts, seeds, protein powder, fresh vegetables and hummus or homemade energy bars or balls. 
  • Meal plan for dinners only and plan for extra for leftovers for lunch.
  • Stock up on Vegan cookbooks you will use over and over again
  • Bookmark favorite go-to blogs and recipes
  • Keep a well-stocked Vegan pantry
  • Use a spreadsheet for meal plans
  • Prep for the week on Saturdays or Sundays
