"I lost 27 pounds in two months just by eating a bunch of little meals versus three big meals," she said in one video. So I will eat basically four to six little meals versus three big meals. So it's kind of spreading your eating out throughout the day so you're never actually starving because technically kind of always eating in a way." 


One of Her Favorites Is Chicken Apple Sausage, Cucumbers, and Pickles

Emmy's mini meals are a form of meal planning, and there is a lot of scientific evidence supporting the benefits of putting some thought into your diet and preparing food at home. Studies the more meals you eat prepared away from home, the higher your risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and early death. And, one study published in the International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity found meal planning was associated with a healthier diet and less obesity.


Meal Planning Can Also Help You Save Money


Meal planning can also help you save money. "Rising food costs can be particularly daunting for larger families. In fact, data from Greenlight shows that 55% of parents and teens identified inflation as their biggest financial concern," Jennifer Seitz, Certified Financial Education Instructor (CFEI) and Director of Education at Greenlight, explains. By creating a meal plan and shopping list ahead of time, you and your children can avoid impulse purchases.

💪🔥Body Booster: You can adapt meal planning to your own likes, dislikes, and body goals. But no matter what it entails, science supports the many benefits of cooking your own meals and planning ahead of time.
