The importance of meal planning


I think one of the biggest reasons why I have failed in the past is due to lack of planning. What better excuse to bypass homemade meals than lack of time?  I want to set myself up for success, not failure, and will begin learning the ins and outs of meal planning.  I have done this before and never stuck with it (do you see a reoccurring theme?) but taking into account my family’s tight budget and my drive to get healthy and lose weight, this time there are no other options. I need to stick to a meal plan.

    I love your blog. My daughter started me on the Paleo diet a year ago last November. Right before the holidays.
    It was hard at first, but I have managed to struggle through for 13 months. I have lost 20 pounds, most around my middle which is where I tend to gain. I have been bad with the sugar for the last 5-6 months. Today I am starting the sugar detox. This is the hardest part. I recommend reading Wheat Belly, sorry I forget the author, and buying a good Paleo diet cookbook.

    • Thank you so much Susan! You are the first person to comment and your advice is sound. A great Paleo cookbook and a will to keep going. I will post some of the desserts that my family enjoys, once the kids are in bed. So far, the best cookbook for those of us with sweet tooth’s that I have discovered, is Paleo Parent’s Eat Like a Dinosaur. I have heard lots about Wheat Belly, so with your recommendation, I will check it out. Thank you again, you’ve put a BIG smile on my face 🙂 Hope you have a super day 🙂
