Given a choice I would have my meals planned and shopped for a whole week ahead. However, it doesn't always work that way as some fresh food may start to rot before their turn to be used come. As such, I plan two meals ahead instead. This also means I've to go shopping more than once a week which can sometimes be challenging depending on my work schedule.

Fries and tater tots are not the problem. The problem is how we don't teach kids to eat healthy when they are young and we don't understand what moderation means.

Everything in moderation is the key!
