Health Tip: For a Healthier Diet, Plan Ahead

Suggestions for cooking in advance

(HealthDay News) -- Planning ahead for healthier meals makes it less likely that you'll order takeout.

Here are suggestions for squeezing food preparation into your busy week, courtesy of the American Heart Association:

  • Prepare a menu two-to-four weeks ahead of schedule. Plan your family's favorite healthier dishes, and update it with new recipes.
  • Plan a menu for each meal for each day. While shopping for ingredients, snag any seasonal foods that are fresh and on sale.
  • Use the weekends to cook and freeze meals for the week.
  • Pre-cut and refrigerate veggies in containers, so you can grab them and go.
