The road to optimizing the health of our body's systems is rarely a straight line. Case in point: this is how my meal plan I posted a few weeks ago played out in real life.
While I don't make a habit of analyzing my meal plans after the fact I thought it would be helpful for you (and for me) to see that it's messy. Only a few times did things actually play out as I planned them. Everything else got moved around, adjusted, and rearranged!
It was still totally worth it to make the plan and grocery shop accordingly because it's important to have those meals ready to slot in as life ebbs and flows and changes. But my point for all of us is: let go of it having to be perfect or "as planned" and let's give ourselves plenty of space and grace for flexibility and mistakes and messes.
