Wedding season is in full swing, and as a recent bride, I know all too well what a hectic schedule you are running, especially the week of the big day! In between final dress fittings, making sure all the groomsmen sent in their tux sizes, and putting the finishing touches on hotel welcome boxes, you still need to continue to eat healthy. That takes time and planning.

One mistake I think a lot of brides make the week of their wedding is eating too little and wearing themselves out with all the festivities. You also get stuck chatting it up with people you haven’t seen in ages during the week's events, and often miss your chance to sit down and eat a full meal.

For me, it was helpful to have a “go-to” arsenal of mini meals and snacks that kept me full and energized without compromising the waistline. I’m a huge believer in a hearty breakfast, so most of these I had in the morning. Then I switched up throughout the day for an easy lunch or snack. I love these quick and easy recipes to go along with my favorite staples.

Remember: you are kind of running a mini marathon this week and don’t need to be famished at the finish line! It’s going to be an amazing and memorable experience, and you need energy to enjoy it! Plus, no one likes a “hangry” bride!
