The holidays can mean a lot of things: time spent with loved ones, beautiful decorations, indulging in delicious food. For some people the holidays also mean lots of traveling. And traveling, whether by plane, train, or automobile, can be incredibly stressful when you eat a real food diet, especially when you also have allergies. And no one wants to spend hours in the kitchen prepping food to take on their trip when they also have to pack, take the dogs to the kennel, run last minute errands, etc. Worrying about what you are going to eat doesn’t have to add an extra layer of stress on top of all the other things you have to do before your trip.
I feel very fortunate to have been invited to guest post over on in-dependent.org. The ladies at InDependent are doing some fabulous things to promote a healthy lifestyle through good food, fitness, and community with the goal of inspiring military spouses to thrive. As you all know, being a military spouse myself, this is something that is very important to me as well, so I was thrilled to be able to share over on their site.
Happy Friday everyone and welcome to another edition of Beyond Food Fridays! A few weeks ago I shared a picture of my meal plan on my instagram feed which led to some questions about my process and also a request for the template I use. And since Fridays are the day I typically do all my meal planning for the following week I figured today would be a great day to finally share some meal planning tips and tricks I’ve picked up over the last 2+ years and to share the template I use with you guys.
