Meal Planning is a great way to help you stay on the right track with good nutrition on a weekly basis.
At FIT 4 MUM HQ we sit down every Sunday evening with the family and plan our weekly meals. It makes the weekly shop a lot easier and quicker, and it ensures we plan a balanced week of good wholesome nutrients to compliment our active lifestyle.
It’s a bit of a challenging week this week, what with Pancake day and Valentines day, where we are cooking slightly differently to a normal week, however it’s good to still get an idea of how we can balance out the days.
Our goal is to always ensure we get our Macronutrients in the right quantities i.e. Carbohydrate, Fat and Protein as well as enough Fruit and Veg. We aim to balance 8 x 8oz glasses of water a day to stay well hydrated – this is often more depending on the quantity and intensity of the exercise we carry out.
We do drink coffee, but limit it to only 2 small cups a day and these are usually taken before noon. Alcohol is more prevalent this week, but we still aim to keep in line with the government guidelines of 2-3 units a day with 2-3 days off a week.
