Time Management – Meal Planning

Do you feel like you can make the time to cook dinner but then are having to grab lunch on the go and not feeling good about your options that are available?
Here is a handy and simple tip to better meal planning.

If you make chicken for dinner, make an extra chicken breast that you can prepare into a salad for the next day’s lunch. It is always easier and faster to add one more piece of chicken to cook if you are already in that mood and process.

Try to make extra at dinner so you can take if for lunch. Making stir-fry, make extra rice and veggies to turn into a nutritious and healthy lunch. Making tacos, make extra that you can turn into a taco salad. Stay tuned for these recipes and more ideas to turn your left-overs into a new and exciting meal.

This is truly one of those small changes that I talk about often, that will add a lot of balance, extra time and nutrition to your life.
