5 Wickedly Healthy Ways to Plan Your Family Meals

Meal Planning

We all want to be healthy and feel better. Eating healthy meals is one of the best ways we can do that. The problem that many of us face is that we don’t know what foods are good for us, we aren’t creative in the kitchen, or we don’t have a lot of time to spend preparing healthy meals.

Understanding that many of us have these problems, I did some research to find ways to solve the dilemma. I searched for a variety of meal-planning options so there is someone for everyone. I found some awesome recipe packs that contain healthy plant-based meals with full nutritional values displayed, inexpensive meal planning services, and an awesome app for meal planning.

The Ultimate Plant-Based Recipe Collection

The goal of living a plant-based lifestyle is to replace processed foods, meats, and dairy products with vegetables, fruits, beans, legumes, and nuts. The biggest benefits come from fresh and organic varieties of these foods. Some people choose to eliminate all non-plant-based foods and others eat them occasionally. This really is a personal preference.

You may be wondering what a plant-based diet contains. Well, you are in luck because Be OrganicallYou just released it’s new Ultimate Plant-Based Recipe Collection! This healthy recipe collection takes the guesswork out of transitioning to a plant-based diet. It contains 58 plant-based recipes, including breakfast, lunch, dinner, treats, and smoothie options. It also contains two sample 7-day meal plans with grocery lists. These vegetarian recipes make meal prep a breeze!

Each healthy recipe has high-resolution pictures, serving sizes, nutritional information, a Fitness Pal barcode so you can track your meals and a recipe key that indicates the type recipe (gluten-free, dairy-free, low carb, meal prep, high protein, vegetarian, quick meals, and contains nuts.

This is awesome for those needing (or just wanting) to go gluten-free. How it works is each week you get a meal plan and a shopping list. It will include 6 Dinner Meals, a Breakfast, a Lunch, a Snack, and a Dessert (and occasionally a Side Dish or other tasty treat!) all together on the same plan.
