Where can I find a whole weeks’s meal program that is ok to start with (the goal is a healthier life :-))? Thanks in advance 🙂
Hello again Cora,
I am glad you asked. Every country has its own national guidelines for healthy eating, but overall they are all very similar in their recommendations. It is important to note that these are general recommendations, and that individual variations exist. The best diet is the one that works for you, and for your lifestyle, and therefore I cannot recommend a week meal-plan without a proper consultation. What I can do is offer you some great tools that will allow you to interpret the guidelines, so you can make a healthy eating plan for yourself.
If you wish to plan ahead you can use the planner found on the USDA website.
If you want keep track of your eating meal by meal then the worksheet (also by USDA) is a great tool.
If you simply want to know the amount of each food group you need daily then the MyPyramid Plan will do.
Don’t be fooled by all the fad diets and provoking articles about ‘superfoods’, healthy eating is not difficult or mysterious. Most people who look for special diets or quick fixes have never tried to follow the recommendations; if they did I am most certain that they would be pleasantly surprised!
With kind regards Iris Daniela Classon
