Diets in Review - Find the Right Diet for You

Planning Ahead is Key!

Thanks to challenger 2BFitN10 for sharing with us how she and her family are benefiting from the Cook at Home Challenge.

For the past few weeks, I’ve been menu planning – figuring out what I’ll be making for dinner each night. Except for one night this week, I didn’t stick with the agenda. The good part was that I did make home-cooked meals. This challenge has made me realize that I like knowing that my family is getting a healthy, unprocessed meal each night. I’d rather cook with what I have on hand than buy something in the drive thru.

The bad part: I need to execute my plan a little better. I usually make up my menu plan on Sundays, which didn’t leave me much time for getting the shopping list together and going to the grocery store. Now, I’ll be planning my menus on Saturday, so that I can be ready to hit the grocery store on Sunday. That way, I’ll have all the ingredients I need for the entire week. Cooking, here I come!

I’m really loving this challenge and learning alot through the process!

This is my personal key to success 2BFitN10! I keep a weekly calendar on the front of the refrigerator, plan my meals and shop on Sunday, and then there are no excuses during the week. I do actually build in one "out" night a week, just in case, but we don't always use it.
