Healthy Meal Planning Made Simple

It can be very challenging coming up with some variety in your daily meal plan.  Without trying to research a ton of different recipes to start trying, perhaps there is another approach you can take when planning your meals.  I usually like to start with picking my protein first and going from there.  You could also pick a theme for your protein and build your meal plan based on various themes throughout the week.

Monday- Mexican Night

Tuesday- Tuscan Night

Wednesday- Leftover Night

Thursday- Seafood

Friday- Pizza Night

Saturday- Grilling or BBQ

Sunday- Leftovers or Sandwich night

It doesn’t always have to be a cuisine that you pick; it could just be the type of food you pick.  How many different types of pizza could you make? Well, off the top of my head I can think of BBQ chicken, Mediterranean, Tropical Vegetable, Basil Pesto, Fajita, and many more.  How about sandwiches? I could easily think of burgers, wraps, clubs, tuna melts, BBQ pulled chicken sliders, or a simple egg salad. 

This method should help spice up the creativity you’re looking for in your meals—it doesn’t have to be fancy, just tasty. 

Don’t forget to check out the Mix and Match handout that can aid in getting the juices flowing for ideas.  Remember these key sauces that can help drive the style of the food you’re cooking: Marinara, Alfredo, Teriyaki, Sesame Ginger, BBQ, Savory Gravy, Mango Chutney, Scampi, Salsa and Basil Pesto Cream sauce…need I go on? Use your ‘Unwise, Better, Best’ tool to ensure the ingredients you are picking fall under the ‘better’ or ‘best’ categories.

While cooking, put on some of your favorite tunes to help you get in the mood!
