It's All About the Perfect Portions
Once you get into the groove, making lunch while you’re waiting for your dinner will be a piece of cake!
Meal prepping forces you to pay attention to how much you’re eating throughout the week. Dedicating an hour to creating meals for yourself is an easy fix to overindulging on junk foods. This also can save you money because you’ll be buying items in bulk and freezing portions that you don’t use right away. Meal prepping is perfect if you’re always busy because it allows you to multitask. Once you get into the groove, making lunch while you’re waiting for your dinner will be a piece of cake! You’re going to cut time being in the kitchen because you’ll learn that you can cook and put different foods into the oven all at once.
Being able to plan your grocery store visits ahead of time by writing out a shopping list can be very helpful. Stop yourself from overeating unhealthy foods by not buying them! Try to include a least one new food a week so your body doesn’t get used to eating the same meal.
Another way for maintaining the perfect portion is getting rid of your large plates. Large plates can make a serving of food look smaller than it is, causing us to add extra. Swap your bigger plates for smaller ones for portion satisfaction! Also making sure your plate is filled with the right amount of protein, starch, fruits, vegetables, and dairy. Replacing a meal with a protein shake can be a healthy and convenient way to get the nutrients you need when you’re on the go, without having to put too much thought into it.
Keeping a food journal is an effortless way to stay accountable for your diet. You’d be surprised by how many small snacks you sneak throughout the day.
