Goal Action Ideas for Nutrition Goals

We recognize that sometimes you know where you want to end up, but it’s still hard to come up with the specific steps that will help to get you there! We’re always looking for ways to encourage you on your PowerSheets journeys, so we’ve identified some broad categories of goals that are popular in the PowerSheets community and brainstormed a list of potential monthly, weekly, and daily goals to help you get the creative juices flowing. Today, we’re back with a continuation of our goal guide series!

This is the natural companion to our first fitness goal guide: nutrition goals! I find that planning and checking off work-outs is often a bit more accessible than finding effective ways to improve my diet. In fact, meal planning may take a bit more forethought. But with these ideas and some of your own, we know you can make little by little progress on your nutrition goals!

Monthly Goals

  • Read one book on nutrition
  • Plan a dinner with a friend at a healthy restaurant
  • Purchase a recipe binder or box
  • Buy a few new kitchen appliances or tools to help you make healthy recipes
  • Clean out the refrigerator (especially sauces and dressings that live in the door!)
  • Devise a nutrition plan for what and how you want to eat
  • Try a meal delivery service (like Hello Fresh or Blue Apron)
  • Ask a friend to start eating healthier with you and to hold you accountable
  • Watch a health documentary
  • Compile list of healthy recipes
  • Make a bank of your favorite healthy recipes as a go-to meal-planning library
  • Download Plant Nanny to track water consumption
  • Clean out pantry and purge unhealthy or expired snacks
  • Invite friends over for supper at your place to ensure a healthy meal will be served and to practice your cooking skills
  • Eliminate caffeine

Weekly Goals

  • Meal plan for the week. Here are our best meal-planning tips!
  • Go grocery shopping for the full week ahead
  • Meal prep for the week ahead
  • Cook one plant-based dinner
  • Create containers of easy-to-grab washed and cut produce to snack on throughout the week

Daily Goals

  • Drink and record eight glasses of water
  • Start the day with a healthy breakfast
  • Make or reheat a homemade lunch and dinner
  • Make coffee before leaving for work
  • Eat slowly, away from your desk
  • Pack a snack so you aren’t tempted by fast food or Starbucks trips

These are just a few suggestions of tangible goals you can add to your Tending List each month to make progress on your nutrition goals for the year! If you’re enjoying this series, be sure to visit our Fitness and Faith goal guides.
