I think it was my third day eating a Nature Valley’s granola bar for breakfast when I realized what a major slacker I had become. Quick fixes can leave me feeling more guilty than satisfied. It was time to step away….step away slowly from the packaged foods.
I’ve decided to give my weekly routine a boost of some natural, organic, and – most-important – healthy treats.
Here’s my gameplan:
– Plan ahead: I’ve marked out not just my dinners, but breakfast and lunch. No more falling back on an old faithful routine.
– Be fruit-ful: I adore fruits and it’s time to considering picking up a ripe banana or clementine when I want to reach for a quick snack, sorry pre-made bars.
– Check the label: I am going to try and cook everything as fresh as possible. When I can’t, I am going to make sure to look at labels to make sure I’m not getting too much sugar, sat fat, sodium or carbs.
Since this whole planning a menu thing is new to me, does anybody plan out their week?
