Weekly Wellness Insights

We already shared that March is National Nutrition Month. We recognize that it can be hard to know what to do when it comes to nutrition.

The truth is Americans spend more than 40 percent of their total food budget on foods prepared outside of the home. While it is possible to eat healthy away from home, studies have shown that the foods people typically select when they eat out generally have more calories and fat (especially saturated fat) than meals and snacks made at home.

So what is a busy professional to do? The answer is meal planning. It's a healthy habit that could help you save money and eat better.


March Health Observances

This week, we are highlighting meal planning!

Here are five tips from our resident Registered Dietitian to help you start meal planning today:

1.       Always look ahead at your week's schedule. An often forgotten step, it's important to note when you need to plan meals and snacks.

2.      Pick recipes that are easy to assemble. You can find recipe inspiration almost anywhere - magazines, blogs, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and friends, family or co-workers.

3.      Don't forget your family's favorite meals. Don't pressure yourself to make something new and different. There are always ways to modify your favorite family recipes to be healthier.

4.      Put together your grocery list. Unplanned grocery trips or forgotten ingredients can take up a lot of time during your week. Make sure you write down and pick up everything you need for your meals and snacks.

5.      Prep ingredients for quick cooking. This is another strategy that can save you a lot of time. For example, if you need onions and bell peppers in the recipes you're making, take a few minutes while catching up on the evening news to clean and chop those vegetables.
