5 Reasons why you should plan your meals

Make life easier by taking care of what you’re eating ahead of time. While meal planning can be considered a chore to add onto your “to-do list,” this is one chore that should be at the top of that list! Here are 5 reasons why you should start planning your meals a week in advance:

Improve your nutrition

Meal planning is the best way of having food with the right, well-balanced nutritional values throughout the week. Planning your meals ultimately allows you to take control of your nutrition needs. Whether you have to stick to a lower sodium diet or want only to eat whole grains and veggies, you can plan for it! 

Make healthier choices

When you shop hungry, you are more likely to throw junk food into your cart. And so, making healthier yet tastier choices is very important. Especially when you are aiming for weight loss. In the 1234 Food Plan program, we help people learn about how to make healthier food choices.

Here’s an idea for making a grocery list by Ben Rickwood, the Food Coach. It’s just an idea of what you need in the first couple of weeks of your 1234 Food Plan.

Eat quality foods

Eat less, but always remember to eat quality food. A home-cooked meal is always better than takeaways or home deliveries. It has more nutritional value than junk food. Hence look for healthy and tasty recipes and shop for their ingredients well in advance to make correct meal choices. 

Save time

Your set grocery lists will prevent you from wandering around the grocery store aimlessly and your meal plans will save you from having to think about what to eat every day. 


When you have a food plan in your hands you remain stress-free. The daily chaos of “what to cook for breakfast or lunch or what’s for dinner” thought that plagues our mind with constant stress goes away when we have pre-planned our meals and grocery shopping list. A two-week seasonal meal plan may be enough variety for your family.
