Two of the biggest obstacles to eating healthy meals during the week are time and effort.  How often do we come home tired from a long day at work and end up eating pre-packaged, easy to cook foods or take-out fast food?

In this episode of the podcast, we offer seven meal planning tips that will help you eat well during the busy work week.  We also recommend a meal planning website that allows you to create a week’s-worth of menus and will even generate a shopping list for them.

Quote of the Week

Enchant, stay beautiful and graceful, but do this, eat well.  Bring the same consideration to the preparation of your food as you devote to your appearance.  Let your dinner be a poem, like your dress.

     — Charles Pierre Monselet, French author (1825-1888)


Make [food] simple and let things taste of what they are.

     — Curnonsky (Maurice Edmond Sailland), French writer (1872-1956)
