Habit 2: Food Planning
Congratulations on completing the first week of Habitspark Diet Foundations! At this point, you’ll retire the habit of ‘Complete Habitspark getting started material.’, and start Habit 2: Food Planning. So, you should now be tracking: Track Habitspark progress, Habit 1: Healthy Breakfast, & Habit 2: Food Planning.
Habit 2: Food Planning. Spend time every day planning your eating for the next day (and 1-2 times per week, planning for the week).
Pick a time that works for you. What is a time you can regularly take to plan your eating? This may be in the morning as you prepare breakfast, or in the evening, as you prepare dinner or after dinner. If you combine planning with dinner, you can set aside extra food from dinner for lunch the next day.
Make a general plan as to what you’ll eat over the next day. This is a good time to look for recipes and make sure you have what you need for meals & snacks.
If you will be eating out, use the planning time to think about what you want to order. Gather menus for your favorite places so you can plan ahead of time meals that fit into your eating plan.
It can be very helpful to plan for the coming week once or twice over the week. This can be right before you go grocery shopping.
