The technique of “meal planning” consists of planning your meals over several days. This will prevent you from always eating the same thing and eating unbalanced meals, and at the same time improving your stress and anxiety response.
The technique is simple:
Planning: It could be Sunday for the week ahead or, quite simply, a quiet day in your week to think about meals for the following week. Refer to the seasonal vegetable calendar to simplify and balance your menus. Involve the whole family, organise themed weeks… the goal is to variate and make meals a pleasure for everyone.
Choose simple recipes with seasonal ingredients that are easy to store. Select these recipes with the same ingredients so that they can be used for multiple meals.
