Jane, a metaboic balancer in Alamo, CA, wanted to share her method of meal planning that makes the metabolic lifestyle work.
Jane has a demanding schedule and often felt frustrated at meal times when she discovered that the fish went bad, the chicken was still frozen, or there was not enough lettuce. With a busy job and long commute, she often doesn’t have time or energy to dash to the store.
PROACTIVE MEAL PLANNING IS THE ANSWER
Determined to succeed, Jane discovered a way to stay organized and always have what she needed.
- Create a weekly planner template on a spreadsheet.
- Every Saturday inventory what foods are there. Knowing what she has helps keep food from going bad.
- Make a meal plan for the week according to personalized metabolic balance® plan.
- Print plan and keep it with you.
- Use the white space on the right hand side for a shopping list. Jane says, “Fish is tough. Calculating when to buy and cook fresh fish can be a challenge.”
- Keep it all together. Add other unrelated tasks in the shopping list area, such as buying a greeting card for a relative.
- After dinner, review what prep is needed for the next day. Take something out of the freezer, boil eggs, wash lettuce and vegetables, etc.
- Planner is handy if your coach asks for a food diary. How To Keep A Food Diary.
FINAL TIP FROM JANE
Keep it simple. Don’t overthink. Sometimes a meal can be as easy as egg-drop soup (eggs, vegetables, water). Soup is soothing and lasts longer.
