As schools and work schedules start back from the summer siesta it is so important to embrace pre-planning and pre-prepping for a family. This is probably the single most helpful way to stay on a healthy eating track!
Here are some helpful tips:
- Get the whole family involved with meal planning
- Take a moment on the weekend to think ahead of your weeks grocery trips, meals, and snacks that your family will need
- Having healthy foods on hand
- Pre-chopping, bagging, and even pre-cooking foods for the week ahead will keep your family from scrambling on the weeknights
Focus your Grocery plan:
As you are prepping for each week with a healthy focus, have a grocery list! Once at the grocery, having your list is key in staying focused on your healthy foods you want to purchase. Categorizing your list with the items you need from each area. Marketing makes it tough to stay focused especially when it comes to fun foods that kids generally want to try. Remember that shopping the perimeter of the grocery store is super helpful in buying the bulk of your nourishing food.
Look out for next week’s blog with a full week of grocery list, recipes, and buying seasoning fruits and vegetables! Happy Weekend Ya’ll!!
