One of my top tips for making "healthy" a routine is to plan your meals.
Whether you write a quick list on the fridge, download a planner off the internet or use one of the many meal plans available ... planning MAKES LIFE EASY!
Bad things happen when you are tired and hungry ("tangry"). And at the end of the day "tangry" is an all too familiar state for many of us. And what does "tangry" result in? Snacks, chocolate, take aways and other less-healthy options.
So here are five of my best online sources of meal planners that can help you be less "tangry" and more healthy.
Did I miss out your favourite? Give me some more good sites, just comment below!
1. Tescos meal planner
Don't let the fact that this is a UK site put you off. OK so you can't buy their ingredients (unless you are in the UK obviously!), but it has a great meal planner builder which you can tailor your menu choices on.
2. My Recipes
Give you five recipes for a week. You can search the recipes or look at their plans for each week. The quick and easy drop down box gives you some nice options for quick meals, slow cook meals and 5 ingredient meals.
Taste Australia has a similar menu planner site as Tescos, but for those in the Southern Hemisphere it is easier to be more seasonal! The site allows you to take out or add ingredients to your meal plan.
Oh, how many hours could you waste on Pinterest! Well, don't waste those hours, instead use this lovely website to search up the 1000's of recipes and meal plans so you never eat another boring meal again
5. My Food Bag
Totally over it and need a rest? My Food Bag (for those in NZ) is an all ingredient meal delivery option. But even if you don't want to buy their product My Food Bag has a couple of nice features. Head to the website and you can view some of their recipes each week. "Like" them on Face book and you will often get their menu plan for the week. Use this along side Pinterest to source the recipes and you have a DIY My Food Bag option!
