Meal Planning 101

As a dietitian, it did not dawn on me that others would find it challenging to figure out what to eat during the course of the week. And making a plan is so essential because meals without planning leads to conveniently poor dietary choices!

I tried creating meal plans for my patients, but I found they wanted more than one week’s worth of menus and it was time prohibitive to create something every week for them!

There are some important questions to ask when planning your meals?

How many people need to be served?

How much time will I have to prepare the meals?

Are the recipe ingredients easy to find in my local grocery?

What ingredients do I need to avoid to support my personalized cancer nutrition plan?

What ingredients do I need to include to support my personalized cancer nutrition plan?

Which recipes are in alignment with my personalized cancer nutrition plan?

How can I use leftovers or batch cooking for saving money and still eating well?

Once I designed a meal template based on my patient’s diagnosis, I went in search for an online company that could help them build their own meal plan using my template! I am so excited to find PlateJoy! They¬†even offer a 10-day free trial and an easy instructional video to help you get started!

Meal Planning just got easier and smarter!
