what is wrong with a kettle
One of my favorite parts of coming home is creating a new meal plan and getting a fresh start in the kitchen. However, coming home also means that my family has usually filled the fridge so I have to make some space! I hope this guide is especially helpful for anyone who doesn’t have a fridge of their own because I know how tough it can be to live a healthy lifestyle when that differs from the rest of your household.
Here’s the three things that have helped me maintain my meal plan:
- I have my own space- my sister and I share a love of salt and vinegar chips; my mom and I share a love of good cheese. Of course I eat these from time to time (moderation, not deprivation!) but it’s easier to stick to the foods I know are good for me when I don’t have to rifle through all the other options in the fridge!
- I honestly enjoy my meal plan. I look forward to every item on it every day. What I eat always feels satisfying, is delicious and makes me feel good. I don’t find myself longing for other foods because a- if I really want it I’ll have a serving, b- I can usually find a healthier way to make that item and c- there’s TONS of food I love that just happens to be good for me!
- I eat frequently; every 2-3 hours. Every time I start getting hungry my meal plan is set up to give me another meal or snack. It’s easier to stick to my plan because it always has an option for me!
If you’re not a meal plan person that’s totally fine too! If you eat intuitively, based on what your body demands you can still use these ideas to help stick to the foods that are best for your body.
