Love the meal planners!

Lisa Meenan

The tips suggested in this publication are practical and easy to implement. They’ve already begun to make a difference to the way I shop and the types of meals I eat. I also love the meal planners, info gathering, action plan and shopping checklist. I've printed them out and put them to use. Such a simple but​ fantastic idea!

Meal planning and specifying what you want to achieve


The meal planning chapter is so like specifying what you wanted to achieve, having a way to measure your success and making it achievable were really good points and then the suggestion of keeping a dedicated note book.
