Halfway through January, you may find your resolve starts to wobble when it comes to New Year's resolutions.
It's not easy to keep up momentum with your healthy eating and money-saving regime, and it can be all too tempting to reach for that handy takeaway menu when the cupboard is looking a bit bare. Then once the whirlwind week begins, with school runs and work deadlines, the chance of a stock-up food shopping trip gets more and more unlikely.
I always find that some hassle-free meal planning once a week not only means that I have all the healthy ingredients I need for the week ahead, it is also more economical - and makes me less likely to grab meals on the run or dial a delivery in a frenzy!
The Real Food healthy meal planner will plan the next seven days and suggest delicious recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can even switch choices and search for a new recipe if one doesn't suit your taste buds. Once you have decided on your meal plan, it's easy to shop online for ingredients and stock up for the week ahead in a click. You might even be able to squeeze a few more dishes out of your weekly shop with our leftovers recipes.
When it comes to eating healthily, a little meal planning goes a long way!
