Today is Sunday and I know I have a busy week ahead of me. By taking the time to prep my food, my whole week runs smoother. When I don’t prep my food for the week ahead, I end up making avoidable bad food decisions. It also saves time and money, because I’m not running around getting food and I eat out less.

1) Before I go to the grocery store, I plan some meals. A great place to find both recipes and a grocery list is Paleo Table (

2) Make a list of everything you are going to buy complete with quantities

3) Head to the store. Try to buy all the things on your list but be flexible i.e. if the ingredient you need is not in stock or a different ingredient is on sale. Try to stay on the perimeter of the grocery store. Avoid temptation!

4) Head home and prep your food. Cook anything that can be refrigerated or frozen and stock your fridge with ready made meals. It will take time but will save you time later.
