A lot of clients ask me, “how can I use recipes in my healthy meal plan?” Whether you like to cook or not, you should be able to follow all different kinds of recipes and make them work into your plan. Using recipes also helps you to add variety and excitement into your diet. If you are intimidated, don’t be! Most recipes will list the difficulty at the top so you can choose based off of your skill level.
It can be very convenient to eat out most of the time and not have to worry about grocery shopping or preparing your own meals. However, a lot of restaurant dishes contain hidden salt, sugar, and fat including the ones labeled “light” on the menu. This habit of going out to eat contributes to a higher calorie and salt intake overtime.
