Today, we explore the ‘backup’ plan, what it is, why we need it and ways to ensure success when we need to use it!
What is it? A safeguard to stay on track when setting out on your meal plan endeavor.
Why have it? It is not a matter of will a meal plan fail, it is a matter of when. The definition of ‘fail’ could mean several things to include the simple fact of not wanting or making the meal that was outlined for that day or week.
How to ensure success? Ask what is the most loved meal. Go for easy, quick or semi-ready when you need to use a backup idea.
