The Meal Plan & Substitutions

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

I'm fascinated by the way that I feel after having mostly followed the meal plan for the past week. Eating balanced meals makes such a HUGE difference, but it's not one you see immediately; which is why I suppose less people try to make this sort of thing happen. At least less people in my life do. Onto my notes though:

When pre-making my salads each week in the ball jars:

Don't put the croutons in the jar. Measure those out each day, so that they don't become soggy.

The amount of croutons that the meal plan suggests are way more than I prefer in my salad. Try swapping a portion of those for a slice of bread or something else.

The amount of cheese that the meal plan suggests is way more than I prefer in my salad. Try swapping a portion of that out for some other form - or skip that all together and have a mozzarella stick instead. Plus, the cheese gets all clumped up in the jar anyway as it sits in there during the week.

Notes about fruit:

Having the ball jars set out with pre-measured, pre-cut fruit has been awesome! Keep going with this. Do a fruit mix, too on some days, just to keep it fresh and interesting.
