The one thing to get healthier AND greener on Earth Day

April 22, 2021

There’s so much on the to-do list including eating better, getting healthier and trying to do the right thing environmentally.  But one thing can help you to do all of these at the same time: Planning your meals

Meal planning can help to reduce food waste as you just buy the items you need and not get tempted by the ‘buy one get one free’ offers that can often be wasted or other offers for things we won’t eat. 

Meal planning is also important to help keep on track with healthy eating.  The temptation of a takeaway or grabbing an unhealthy snack is significantly reduced if there is already something tasty waiting in the fridge!

Use this process to reduce food waste, eat healthier and save money

  1.  Make a list of your meals for the week, including lunches, breakfasts and healthy snacks. Base your meals on vegetables, oily fish, beans, nuts and wholegrains,
  2.  Check your fridge and cupboards for what you have already that can be used whilst still in date
  3. Make a shopping list of the ingredients you need (and remember to take it with you!)

Planning is one of the keys to tackling health conditions like type 2 diabetes. But you don’t have to do it alone. I can help you to plan your meals and lifestyle to get your health back on track with personalised nutrition and lifestyle guidance.
