Meal planning can make a big difference in how your day goes. Why?
- Your choices will be healthier, since you're not making spur-of-the-moment decisions when you're already hungry.
- You’ll have one less thing to think about. Knowing what you’re going to eat and scheduling meals helps keep your mind off food between meals and snacks because the decision is made.
- It gives you structure. Knowing when you'll be eating lets you plan the rest of your day. Having a plan in place can also have a ripple effect, helping you stick with other healthy behaviours.
Save time at the grocery store:
Know what you’ll be eating this week. Map out your meals so you’ll know exactly what to buy.
Use the Barcode Scanner. You can quickly find the SmartPoints value of any packaged food. (And it’s also kind of fun.)
Top tip: Beware of sale items. If it’s not on your list, you don’t need it.
