One of the best strategies for staying on track is planning ahead. Planning your meals for the week and itemizing a grocery list to match saves so much time, energy, money and mental space! When we know what we’re eating every day, when we plan to prep, cook and eat it, and how much of it to buy means a lot less stress and a vastly increased ability to stay on target. And, by looking at the whole week, you can easily identify areas where you can swap out a meal to round out nutrient density and make sure you’re getting your target weekly servings from all the important Nutrivore food families.
But, meal planning doesn’t need to be super complex! This handy-dandy magnetic notepad gives you space to write out your planned meals for each day of the week (pro tip: write the name of the recipe and the cookbook or website it’s from for easy reference), including leftover nights, and then write out the ingredients you’ll need to purchase at the store for that meal. Keep the magnetic pad on the fridge, so you can add to your grocery list every time you start to run low on a staple!
