1. Set Goals
During this step you want to set goals. What foods do you want to eat more of, what foods do you know you don’t need to buy, what is your budget, which store(s) will you go to, etc.

2. Make A Master Plan
Here is where you want to decide what recipes you will use if any, what are you going to cook during the week, and how many different meals you will prep, and when you will prepare the meals.

3. Shop Strategically
When shopping be sure you are choosing all of your favorite fruits and veggies, chicken, ground turkey, etc. No matter what you buy you want to make sure you actually like it because if you don’t you will not excited about grabbing when you need a quick snack or when you are ready to make that salad. Whatever you do make sure you are not picking up things you don’t like and things that are not on your meal plan (unhealthy/junk food).

4. Prep
As soon as your shopping is complete go home and begin to prep. Peel you carrots, scrub your sweet potatoes, cut those onions, etc. You want to prep as much as you can so you don’t have to do all during the actual meal prep and so you don’t have to pack all the bulk of veggies/groceries in your refrigerator or freezer.

5. Don’t Sabotage Yourself
Do not go and buy 20 dollars of junk food believing that you won’t eat it, because although there are some pretty disciplined people out there everyone is not, and having that temptation will only cause to failure which should definitely NOT the goal. When shopping if at all possible always try to stick to the outermost aisles where your meat, veggies, fruits, nuts, eggs, milks, and yogurts are located.

By Failing To Prepare You Are Preparing To Fail
