Make Your Weekly Meal Plan Healthy

This is how I got the idea of how to make a healthy meal plan you love. I went to a Subway and purchases a 6-inch Tuna Sandwich with lettuce, tomatoes, American cheese, and cucumbers. With Lite mayonnaise and a touch of oil. I tell you I did not come into that Subway that day expecting to purchase a Tuna sandwich. But that sandwich may have been the best sandwich’s from Subway that I had ever tasted.

I purchased it because it happened to be the Sub of the day and it was discounted. The great thing is that Tuna is very very healthy for you. That 6-inch Tuna sub might be the healthiest item that Subway carries. Definitely in the top 5. But this is the genius and power of what I am sharing with you today.

Make Your Weekly Meal Plan Fun!

This is a big thing especially these days where there are so many great food options out there that are not healthy. You have Chipotle, Applebee’s , that great pizza joint, that great burger joint, that great rib joint and so on and so on. We are driving past it every day. We are walking past it and oh do we hear it on the radio and television ads all the time. So we have to have a good option to counter these awesome foods that we are trying to break up with. Or at least use on a very limited bases.

Let’s face it we have competition out there and they are experts at what they do. Marketing bad food options to us and our children. So what do we do? We make our weekly meal plan fun. Look up great recipes that are fun and new to you. Use a new spice that you have never used before. Try a new food that you have never tried before every once in a while. But make sure that you have a solid backup if that food adventure backfires. Ha ha-ha!

I remember when I got out of the military and I was a single guy learning how to cook. I would mess up and create something that was inedible and let ‘s just say my second option was Wendy’s down the street. Not good! We are doing a great thing in cooking more and being serious about changing our health and weight status. Great! But let ‘s also be realistic and have a back up plan for our meal fails. 🙂

Make Eating Healthy a Family Affair

This may be one of the most important tips that I can give anyone. If we are going to be successful in life it has to be a team effort at some point. Eating is such a beautiful experience that God has given us. One that is best shared with family and friends. So when we have come to a crisis in our health. Or when we need to do something great for our health. Something like lowering our cholesterol, lowering our blood sugar, or lowering our blood pressure.

This is best done with the help of our families and friends. Try your best not do to this alone. If you are married or in a relationship get your mate ‘s input on eating healthy and eating good! Being sensible or going big on eating great! Whatever you have decided to do find some support and some help.

Have your children and your brothers and sisters join in. Because your great decision to live healthy is going to impact your whole family and circle of friends. You will start a chain reaction of good health and healthy eating awareness. By sharing your great foods and great food ideas with them you will find yourself with a family synergy that will prove powerful and effect the health through the generations.

As the Biblical Proverb says. Two are Better than One!

Make Your Meal Plan Diverse

Right along with making your meal plan fun is making your meal nutritionally diverse. So we are talking about having the organic natural foods that come from the Earth and have very little processing in them. We are talking of fruits, vegetables, fish, poultry, breads, dairy, nuts, and grains.

My general rule

  • is if it is in a box I do not want to eat it.
  • If it is in a drive through window I do not want to eat it.
  • Farm Grown Foods are Best
  • Convection Cooking is Awesome
  • Limit the Fats, Grease, and Frying
  • Keep improving

This phase of making your meals nutritious, fun, and diverse is going right into my last point. Researching the food you eat. You are going to have to grow in your knowledge of what is healthy and what is not healthy while you grow in your healthy eating.

Research The Food You Eat

Ok, this blog post is just an outline of a direction to go in and a philosophy to use when you are trying to tackle the monster that is bad eating habits. This will help you get a foot in the door of good health. It is better than the alternative of fast food and bad food that we buy and cook for ourselves. The next level and the needed level is to grow in your knowledge of food. The old saying that you are what you eat is very true.

So do you know what you are eating? Do you know what the ingredients are? Do you know what good ingredients do to your body, mind, and mood? Do you know what bad ingredients do to your body, mind and mood?

If not we need to go deeper! What you don’t want to do is go on a diet and not lose weight. That can make one very frustrated and want to give up. You don’t want to work out and not lose weight if that is your goal. Research as you stabilize your health!

Stair Step Down the Hypoglycemic Ladder

So in going deeper in your knowledge and your intentional change of diet and planning of your weekly meals. One term that you have to become comfortable and knowledgeable of is the Hypoglycemic index. Without going into this too deep they Hypoglycemic index is a listing of popular foods and ingredients and how they affect the blood sugar in our bodies. As our blood sugar goes so does our health and our weight. The higher our blood sugar and the number of the food or ingredient on the hypo glycemic index than the less healthy the food is for us.

For instance take a Bagel. Surprisingly to me the Bagel is very high on the hypo glycemic index vs the possible alternative bread option a specialty grain bread. This could be significant change in your diet as you take away high glycemic foods and exchange them for lower glycemic foods. Little by little and more and more. You will shed the pounds and be healthier and healthier!!!

Think long term and start today!!!

 

 

Don ‘t Quit on your Diet because of bad food choices

Finally I want to encourage you to NOT QUIT! Don’t let bad food choices cause you to quit your diet. So you chose a diet that has you eating foods that you just hate. So you don’t eat it. Or you do and you find yourself binge eating later. Don ‘t give up on your quest for great healthy and a great healthy weight.

Keep working on your Healthy Living Philosophy! Keep getting knowledge of how to eat good and healthy. Keep implementing what you know.

If you have any questions or comments please leave them with us. We would love to talk with you.

Have Fun!

    I love the way you talk about making your meal plan fun.  That will especially make it easier for picky eaters.

    As a diabetic it is very often difficult to make meals that are good for me and enjoyed by the whole family.  However when I find sites like this it makes me feel like there is hope.

    At the end of the day everything you talk about seems like it will make cooking and eating fun again.

    • By the way here is cookbook on sale for the whole family from the Food Network. You save like $45 on it! There are some healthy and normal recipes in it. I hope you all enjoy it! This is the direct link to purchase it on Amazon.

      This is the article I did on it https://www.bestfoodrecipereview.com/food-network-magazine-tremendous-sale-thanksgiving-issue-and-beyond/

      Hello Dale! I understand you bruh. I am pre diabetic. One thing I will say is that we are still human beings. Though we need to watch our diets we cannot be perfect. Also that our family needs to watch their diets as well. So I think it brings us all closer to each other in certain ways. 

      But in the end we can eat great and eat health all the same! This takes practice and research. I am working on a post about the Nutribullet Rx that I will finish today. That is a great way for great health for the whole family.  The meals that you can replace by juicing or at least make more healthier. It allows me to splurge a little bit more on my meals. Not go crazy but splurge a little more on some ingredients etc. 

      For instance if I have a Healthy Nutribullet Juice in the morning with a sensible breakfast of oatmeal and cereal. If I have a nice salad with chopped meat like chicken etc. Than at dinner I can have some slow cooked pork chops with some barbeque sauce. 🙂 

      Add in some nice exercise that day. Some smart sweets. Like a protein bar. There are some great choices out there. Fiber bars… Etc. That is a great day for me! 

      Everyone is different very true. But for me that is a great day.

    Hey, I really enjoyed the article, I wish I’d come across something like your post, when I first started looking into health. It would have saved me a lot of time.

    I can only concur to the fact that eating healthy food is one of the most beneficial things for your health you can do. And it’s really, really important to find your approach and food you like and enjoy. Otherwise those will really just be some two inspired weeks that you will be able to maintain the healthy food approach and then you’ll just revert back.

    In this regard what helped me was actually educating myself about why certain foods are healthy and what are the actual benefits they provide. Like, why should I eat broccoli or kale, or arugula or anything else? And when you have the knowledge, you actually know why you’re eating certain things and it makes them more enjoyable. Just the reason for eating anything because supposedly it’s good for you, I’ve found to be to vague to actually motivate me to stick to the healthy food. 

    I do think that some people may find the same.

    Loved also all the other insights you provided for us people. Good stuff.

    Cheers and have a Great One!

      Hey Matiss! That was very insightful. That is a great way of thinking. There is so much psychology in our lives. Eating is one of those places where we could do more digging into the why we eat. So we can use our brain more than we use our impulses. 

      Aligning our brain with our will to fight the bad habits that we have created and been given at times. 

      I loved it . Thanks

    I like the spirit of having a plan in every meal. This can help cut amount from the family’s out of budget expenses. 

    Secondly, I love very much the “Make Eating Healthy a Family Affair”, why? Let’s accept the fact that what the family’s discipline is likely to be what the family’s health. So whatever bounty over the table shared by the family is what makes the family’s health.

    I agree very much on this principle having a healthy meal not as an individual but as a group to travel the healthy way of living.

      Hello Abagatan! I loved your response. What nation are you from I had a ball reading your comments! 🙂 . You are so right. I tell you I am also a strong believer in teamwork. The best team is the family. So it is wise to use it and to strengthen it . Be fruitful and multiply!!! 

      That begins at the dinner table. Even in a Biblical sense. The Book of Genesis started out with God telling Adam and Eve to eat the right foods together!!! I would say our food choices and holding each other accountable is important.
