A healthy diet requires a surprising amount of planning. Very rarely does our diet fail because of an unwillingness to change, an insuperable chocolate addiction, or financial reasons. More often we become weak because we don’t want to spend that much time on grocery shopping, perhaps even in different stores, and we don’t like thinking about what we eat that much. If we then get hungry while on the go, we will find ourselves more quickly in the bakery line for a chocolate roll than we can spell “Kale.”
A friend of mine also complained that she is simply too undisciplined to sit down every Sunday and create a meal plan. Well, we’re all human … But I happen to love creating meal plans and therefore, this week, I will do it for you. Here are 21 healthy, tasty recipes for 7 days. Every day 3 recipes: breakfast, lunch, dinner. You just have to go shopping! Woop Woop!
How are you supposed to read the meal plan?
All recipes in this meal plan are gluten free. Many are vegetarian, some vegan, some Paleo. Depending on your diet, there is a recipe for everyone. However, do not hesitate to adapt the recipes according to your diet or to modify them and make them easier (I constantly leave out ingredients or trade them fo less costly ones.) All recipes are healthy, balanced, and provide all essential nutrients.
You can either stick to the meal plan and cook all 21 recipes. Or you could also, for example, choose three breakfast recipes and cook them twice. In the evening, I also like to prepare bigger portions and take them to work the next day.
Have fun cooking and I wish you a fantastic week!
Do you sit down and create a meal plan every week? How do you manage to be well prepared and avoid weak moments?
