Plan quick and easy meals
  • Plan meals ahead of time
    • One of the best ways to have a healthy diet is to prepare your own food and eat in regularly.
    • Pick a few healthy recipes that you and your family like and build a meal schedule around them.
    • If you have three or four meals planned per week and eat leftovers on the other nights, you will be much farther ahead than if you are eating out or having frozen dinners most nights.
  • Cook when you can
    • Cook meals on the weekend as well as the weekdays.
    • Avoid frozen foods.
