The Ultimate 7-Days Diabetes Meal Plan: Day 6

Wellness Captain Diabetes Meal Plan Day 6

We’re just one day away from the end of our 7-days Diabetes Meal Plan and I want to make sure you get as much useful information as possible. Aside from today’s menu, I want to offer a couple of quick tips that really helped me become more organized with meal prepping. Here they are:

  1. Consider food groups. Ideally, each meal should include all three essential nutrient groups: vitamins, protein and fats. If that’s not possible at one meal of the day, make sure to add the missing nutrients to the next meal.
  2. Use containers. Ever since I’ve started to meal prep, containers have made a huge difference. They are super cheap and come in all shapes and sizes so they’re easy to store as well.
  3. Always have spices. Adding extra spices can make a family of 5 enjoy the same meal in different ways. They’re the essence of cooking!
  4. Save recipes. I made a habit out of writing down every recipe I tried and enjoyed, as well as the meals I want to cook. It is a huge time-saver especially when you can organize recipes by the ingredients they contain or the time they require for cooking.
  5. Be patient. It takes 21 days for your brain to embrace a new habit, so stay consistent and take it one day at a time. It will be so worth it!

 

I hope these tips can make a difference in your home (and heart) too; now, we can move on to today’s menu!
