Meal Planning for a Healthy Life

Healthy body, healthy family, healthy budget.


My name is Sarah. I’m a wife and mother of 4 beautiful children. I have struggled with my weight all of my adult life, and recently realized that the key to permanent weight loss is permanent dieting. Sounds bad, but it is true that if you want to maintain a healthy weight, you have to eat healthfully and mindfully (diet) for the rest of your life.

I have found meal planning to be the key to eating healthfully. When I begin my week with an arsenal of healthy meals, ready to go, it is much easier to make those good choices and stick to my eating goals.

The other benefit of meal planning is saving money. No impulse buying, less eating out, and planning that allows me to make multiple meals with minimal ingredients. I am able to feed my family of 6 on an average of $200 a week.

I hope you will join me each week as I post my plans, shopping lists, and recipes, so you can also benefit from meal planning!
