What is a meal planner?
A meal planer is simply a way to plan your meals for the coming days or weeks. It's a list of the foods you intend to prepare and eat each day.
Why create a meal plan?
Meal plans help you save money and enjoy healthier diet. They also help you add variety to meals.
When should you create a meal plan?
It's not only people seeking to lose or add weight who benefit from creating a meal plan. Anyone who wants to have a healthy, varied diet and wants to save money, will benefit from meal planning.
What should a meal plan contain?
A meal plan should list days - and even specific dates - and the meals you plan to eat on those days. Include details of the food and drink you plan to have for:
- Evening meal
- Snacks between meals
By planning your meals in this way, you can get a better picture of your diet, how many calories you consume, and the overall balance of your food intake.
