Want to know the easiest way to lose weight and save money at the same time?

Meal planning!

Research has shown that meal planning is associated with food variety, diet quality and body weight status. Planning our meals means we are more likely to cook fresh food at home, which has been linked with improved diet quality and lower odds of being overweight.

When you’re busy and responding to a variety of demands, it can be difficult to eat healthily when it’s late in the day and you’re hungry. 

Lack of energy, time, inspiration or ingredients often results in making food that doesn’t make you feel good or nourish your body.

Meal planning is an easy and effective way to help you discover and experiment with new ways of eating. This is an opportunity to learn what healthy eating means, how you can incorporate it into your busy life and how easy it is to make healthy decisions.

Perhaps you are looking to lose weight, detox your body, eliminate certain foods, identify if a particular type of food might be causing unwanted symptoms, or maybe you just want to learn how to cook healthy meals.

Whatever your goals, having a meal plan, shopping list and recipe book can help you achieve them.

All the meal plans on this site include;

  • Delicious, healthy recipes which have been nutritionally-analysed to account for calories, fats, carbohydrates, protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals.
  • Downloadable recipe e-book including a print-friendly version ready to stick on your fridge
  • Itemised shopping list
  • Snack ideas

You may not want to plan your meals forever, but as a starting point, following a plan can help you break through all the conflicting advice about what you should or shouldn’t be eating. Once you’ve followed it for three weeks, you’ll have a much clearer sense of how to eat right for your body, how to maximise ingredients, minimise waste and save money.
