If you followed my Instagram account last year, you know I’m a big fan of batch cooking to eat healthier.
For those of you who don’t know what batching cooking is, it’s basically where you cook up big batches of a few different healthy foods (especially proteins, roasted veggies, beans and longer-cooking grains) and keep them in the fridge ready to go.
Most of these items can be mixed and matched to create variety both in terms of nutrition and flavor in your diet.
Today, I want to share with you another practice I do to ensure I’m eating healthy.
The night before I go to bed, I open the fridge and take a look at what’s there and make a mental note of what I’m going to eat the following day. It’s different than meal planning because I’m not planning my meals for the week – it’s just a structure for one day.
This gets me to pay attention to what my body needs right now as well as tailor my food choices to my activity level.
So for example, yesterday I took a look in the fridge and came up with the following structure for today:
- Breakfast ~ Avocado Shake
- Lunch ~ Homemade Pizza with Vegan Cheese, Fresh Basil & Salad
- Snack ~ Apple & Almond Butter
- Dinner ~ Lebanese Chicken Skewers with some Mezze and a Salad or a Green Drink
