How will I do it?

Thursday, March 07, 2013

My plan of attack is to prepare a healthy dinner BEFORE we're actually starving and dying to eat. ;) Brilliant, I know. But (as I'm sure many of you know) after a day of work, you're drained and the last thing you want to do is cook dinner! And then you fall back on something fast, easy, and not so healthy. For instance, today I have chicken & cauliflower ready to go for tonight. Even if I mentally know what I'll be making, that helps. As long as I don't have to decide at 7 pm what to cook!

To encourage myself and stay on track, I'll sit down weekly and figure out the menu for the week, do the grocery shopping, and have that menu on hand to make my week easier.

    I do the same thing. I always try to think about it at least by lunchtime what my plans are for dinner. It helps me in preparing it too!

    Good plan!

    What a great idea to plan your meals ahead! Maybe you can also do a little preparation the night before, AFTER or DURING your meal prep for that night? If you have everything together for, say, a casserole, the night before, just waiting in the fridge to pop into the oven when you get home, you may feel a lot more organised?

    I even plan my breakfast and lunch before I go to bed, and that helps me getting ready on time in the morning. For example, this week I have been I boiling eggs for breakfast and making a sandwich for lunch when I have finished dinner. I get out the plates I need, fill up the jug with water for boiling for a cup of tea, even put a spoon in the cup. Then I just grab everything when I get up in the morning.

    I LOVE feeling organised with my meals :)

    May your meal preparation become simpler as you go along!
