    Make a plan that fits your schedule, your tastes, and your work situation. When I worked nights, I didn't want a meal at work, but snacks while working. So find healthy, easy snacks for work. If you find yourself wanting a meal most nights, pack something more filling. Frozen dinners that you buy often are high in sodium but you can make your own. They make quick and easy options whether you buy them or make them. Throw out the idea that you need to eat breakfast foods in the morning. Food is not ONLY for the traditional times.

    You just have to set your meal schedules according to your schedule. I know 2nd & 3rd shift are horrible to coordinate meals with a family. I just had my breakfast when I got up. My lunch on the job and dinner whenever I came home. Meal prep is the key. It is too easy to stop at fast food on the way home from work. So and research on the web the calorie counts of fast food. It will change your mind on that. Good luck, it does take extra wok.

    What works for me is - on Friday or Saturday I plan the menu for the week (doesn't have to be a lot - usually a couple of things rotated through the week) Then I grocery shop and do all the meal prep on Sunday. During the week I come home and can have supper on the table in under 10 minutes. If you want, you can simplify meal prep with rotisserie chicken and premade salads, etc. Best wishes!
