Celebrity trainer and creator of "Sunday Set-Up" Kathy Kaehler gave us some great advice on meal planning for summer. Kathy created "Sunday Set-Up" to help make eating healthy super easy. Instead of stressing about what to eat everyday, the program sets a routine that each Sunday you "set up" your food for the week.
The concept is quite simple: you make a list of what to buy (your favorite grain and lean protein, along with fresh fruits and veggies) and store it in glass-lock containers. It takes just 45 minutes on Sunday (or any day of the week) to prep and chop. It's the simplest way to eat healthy all week. Kathy prepared some of her favorite nutritious meals and snacks in her kitchen when we stopped by, including "breakfast in a jar", chopped vegetables (such as broccoli and carrots), hummus, vegetable soup (made with her chopped ingredients), and delicious baked pears.
Stars such as Angie Harmon, Tiffani Thiessen, Lisa Rinna, and Rebecca Romijn are subscribers to "Sunday Set-Up." Kathy says, "Don't get bogged down with calorie counting and weighing your food. Put your focus toward food that is closest to their original state. Eat in moderation and slowly. Fill up with fiber and be mindful with every mouthful."
