Meal planning doesn’t only have to be meals made at home. If you are in the type of working environment that requires you to eat out, then put restaurant food on your meal plan. Dinner Theme Meal Planning
How does this work?
If for instance you use a meal planning template, this could help you decide what to eat at the restaurant your business meeting is being held.
Using my home template, it would mean that if you are going out for lunch or dinner at a restaurant you would then either choose vegetarian/vegan restaurants or a vegetarian dish at whichever restaurants you go to. Monday is meat free in my house.
Mince is the main ingredient on my meal plan template for a Tuesday, so Italian restaurants would work well.
Fish on Wednesday’s, there are so many restaurants to choose from for this option. My advice though is to avoid ordering fish in a steakhouse. They cook steaks; fish is not always their forte except at the very upmarket places.
You can see how this would work for you.
There are 5 benefits to this method.
- You can actually stick to an eating plan, by knowing ahead of time what you are going to be ordering. Maybe not the exact dish but an idea
- It gives you an excuse to try out new places and new flavours
- When you draw up you home meal plan you can adjust the size of your meals to suit what you had at lunch or pack a lighter lunch if it is a business dinner.
- It will take you less time to order as you already can cross off certain dishes from your range of choices.
- You don’t have to cook! For those who don’t like cooking, this would probably be the best option.
Once again proof that meal planning is not some rigid regime you have to stick to. It is flexible and can fit in with any lifestyle you live.
