“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.”
Every week I like to share highlights form the Slender Kitchen meal plans. I believe meal planning is critical to any long term and effective healthy living or weight loss goals. For me it was the single thing that finally made permanent weight loss achievable. The quote stood true, when I failed to plan, I failed, and I don’t want that to happen to others.
Additionally, I believe that meal planning is a skill that takes time to master and we can all use some help! When I first started meal planning it took up countless hours pouring over recipes, calculating nutritional info and/or points, creating elaborate calendars, and building shopping lists. It was painful. Anything I can do to ease that pain for someone else is a win-win in my book.
Finally, I hope by sharing meal plan ideas, it will help you find a system that works for you. Whether it’s using our meal plans or interactive meal planner, writing one into your weekly planner, or creating your own meal planning system – I hope this feature inspires you to start planning at least a few meals every week. It will save you time, money, and it truly will help you reach your weight loss and healthy living goals.

Some highlights from this week’s meal plan!
Slow Cooker Maple Pork Tenderloin: This dish brings together classic flavors for a fork tender, slow roasted pork tenderloin flaked with maple syrup and mustard. It’s delicious and perfect for this time of year.
One Pot Creamy Parmesan Broccoli Pasta: I love simple one pot pasta dishes where the sauce, pasta, and vegetables all cook together in less than twenty minutes. This version is delicious with a creamy Parmesan sauce and plenty of fresh broccoli.
