Looking Ahead and Planning
As I tell my nutrition clients, looking ahead and planning are key to their success with establishing healthier eating habits. Take breakfast. When you plan to eat an orange + bowl of oatmeal with drizzle of honey & walnuts + cup of yogurt + hot coffee or tea, and write it down, your chances of eating a nutritious breakfast are better. Take lunch. When you plan to enjoy a tuna salad & lettuce on whole wheat wrap + cucumber slices with hummus + apple or pear, and write it down, your chances of eating well at noon are better. Take dinner. When you plan to do an easy stir-fry meal at home with colorful snow peas, carrots and chicken or tofu, and write it down, your chances of eating a satisfying evening meal are better.
