Meal plans are a great way to find new recipes and increase nutrients.
Planning out what to what to eat for the week eliminates the inevitable staring at an open refrigerator at 5pm wondering what to throw together for dinner. Without a plan, we are more likely to make less nutrient dense choices than if we had a plan.
Even if only a few meals a week are planned, it’s better than none! I don’t make every recipe in my weekly meal plans. I pick and choose what fits our schedule and my mood! I have some simple old favorites that I like to add lib in rather than try brand new recipes every day. That works for me. Finding what works for you is what will keep you eating healthy.
It’s simple to swap out recipes with ingredients that you can’t eat for others. Either use a different recipe entirely or use substitutions. For example, if you can’t have eggs here is a post with quite a few eggs substitutes.
If fruit is an issue, my favorite breakfast is some type of vegetable hash. Chop up some veggies with some sweet potatoes, add some meat if desired and enjoy! This is a great way to use up some leftover food from dinner too!
Remember, the main components of your meals should be vegetables, meats, and good fats.
