I’ve been filtering my life through the HEART framework for a decade, and I’ve gotten everything pretty well sorted into it’s own category. However, meal-planning is one of those things that can fall into two categories on the HEART framework: Help Yourself and Resources & Responsibilities.
Nutrition is one of the checkpoints in the first life segment, Help Yourself. And if nutrition is something you are struggling with: if you are feeling tired, or sluggish, if you know you need to eat better to improve your health, I’d suggest starting meal planning from a place of helping yourself. Start small, with a nutritious breakfast. Breakfast seems much less intimidating than dinner, doesn’t it?
Resources & Responsibilities
But if you are approaching meal planning from a place of needing to feed your family with less stress, it’s going to fall in the resources & responsibilities category. Meal planning doesn’t just help you eat healthier—it can also save time and money, and keep you from letting food rot in the fridge.
Meal planning has been an essential tool for me, both in taking care of myself and my physical needs and in taking care of my family. So I’m excited to do a deep dive into all my favorite meal-planning strategies and share my favorite cookbooks and meal-planning apps with you in my April workshop, Plan to Plate.
When you purchase the workshop, you’ll get a digital guidebook with videos that walk you through a whole range of meal-planning topics, from the basics to my favorite tips and tricks. I’ve packed the guidebook full of meal-planning printables and favorite recipes. Plus, when you buy the guidebook, you get a ticket to the live Q&A session on Friday, March 31st at 9 am central. I hope you’ll join me: click here to be the first to find out when it’s available!
