Planning is Everything!
We all have plans in life, but a lot of our plans don’t ever happen unless we add intention and action. The thing with plans is that they may evolve and change based on circumstances that happen to you or maybe a new direction in life. That’s why planning is everything, because daily, weekly, monthly and yearly planning is what will turn your goals and dreams into reality.
This week I’ve been putting into place a plan to eat healthier meals so Ron and I can lose a few pounds and to ensure that we’re eating more nutrient based foods that are better for us over the long term. That’s easier said than done, because it takes a lot of planning. I need to come up with a meal plan, select specific recipes for each meal, and then shop for all the ingredients that are needed to make them.
For people on the go, home meal services are really a great idea. I know that my daughter and son are taking advantage of home meal services, such as Home Chef, Blue Apron, and Hello Fresh. They deliver pre-portioned ingredients and recipes that you can make at home with everything you need. They’re nutritious and delicious!
This week I signed up for The Produce Box, which offers fresh, local and organic vegetables that are delivered each week to your home. You can determine which box you want and make modifications to the box depending on your needs and tastes. And each box comes with recipes and tips on how to store the vegetables. Once I get them each week, I plan on creating healthy meals based on the vegetables I receive.
A plan is one thing. What really works best is continual planning. It takes discipline and organization, but the results are worth it!
