This Is Exactly How I Meal Plan For A Week of Healthy Eating

September 17th, 2018

First rule of meal planning: do whatever works for you! If you love to do a grocery store run on your way home from work to grab ingredients for tonight’s dinner, I salute you. I’m personally one who loves the feeling of heading into a new week armed with a plan and a fridge full of groceries to make it happen. The key to good meal planning is finding what makes you feel prepared enough so that meals aren’t stressing you out – and you don’t find yourself sabotaging your healthy eating goals because you get home from work starving, and a bag of popcorn or greasy takeout is all you can think of on the fly.

Ever since I started posting my weekly meal plans on my Instagram stories each Sunday (you can check out the old ones in my Highlights reel), I’ve gotten a lot of questions from you guys, like “Is that really what you’re eating all week?” and “How do you do it?” The truth is, I’ve been doing my meal planning just like this since way before Instagram, and I swear that it’s easy enough for anyone to do with just a little practice and a few strategies in your back pocket. Read on to see exactly what my meal planning process looks like each week, and I’d love to hear in the comments if you’ve got any great meal planning tips that work for you!

    This is pretty much how I operate during the week! The trick is be ready for the week with a base plan but feel free to adjust it to your cravings and time schedules througout the week.
    I love grocery shopping on Saturdays. It’s weird I know… but it has become a rutine which I have come to love! Going to the farmers market is such a chill out time for me. It doesn’t take more than an hour some weeks but I always make time for it.
    I find it very handy to use Sundays to get things ready such as grain or pasta which I will later use for lunch bowls or dinner sides. Ans also, when I bake my weekly batch of sandwhich bread I use the oven heating time to roast ALL sort of vegetables. From potatos, to betts, eggplant, peppers, carrots… whatever is in season actually. I don’t own a grill since I live in an appartment so oven roasting does the “grill” craving for me!

    I love this. Lately, I’ve been really good about eating healthy, colorful meals. However being in college, it gets difficult sometimes to find the time/energy to actually make a decent meal. I like how you mentioned that meal prepping doesn’t have to be a stressful experience, you can make it relaxing and fun. I’ll definitely have to buy some new cook books to look through.

    Great post, x
