Health Tips for Couples Series - Post 4

The number one cause of diet sabotage is not being properly prepared.

To combat this, schedule in time each week with your partner to write out a comprehensive grocery list, plan out everything you’d like to eat for the week, and make it happen!

Meal prepping saves you time, money, and gives you more control over what is available to you throughout the week. It also reserves space for creativity since you will most likely not want to be eating the same thing all week AND it offers time to bond with your partner.

Food offers us much more than than physical nutrition. Writing out a plan helps you better understand your partner’s preferences and planning time to cook all your meals together can be a fun relationship-building experience.

(PS: I'm working on an other series about meal prepping.)

Your meal plan will differ depending on your health goals, nutritional needs, and food preferences, but here are some affordable and easy options to get your meal prepping routine started:
