What is the biggest pit fall that ladies tell me about again and again? Getting off course with their eating habits. My grandmother always said, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.”.

You can also cook whole meals to grab and go, it’s just a matter of how you package and freeze them to last.
Make a Shopping List to go with your plan – Make your plan before shopping at the store so that you don’t buy foods that you shouldn’t have. You will ensure that you have all the healthy food you need on hand at home.
