Small Meal Plans

All your life, you’ve heard the importance of getting three square meals a day. But research indicates that eating smaller, more frequent meals throughout the day can keep you healthier—one study showed that people who ate six or more times in a span of 24 hours had lower BMIs and ate more nutritious food compared to people who ate just three or fewer meals over the course of a day. An added bonus to eating small? If you’re one of the 60 million Americans who get heartburn once a month, or one of the 15 million Americans who deal with heartburn every day, smaller meals can help you reduce its frequency. Get in the habit of eating smaller meals and kick-start your small meal plan with these recipes.
