Adjusting to life outside of active military duty means changes in both diet and fitness, and not always in a healthy way. Fast food and quick eats pack on pounds fast. Many veterans find it difficult to maintain a proper diet after exiting the military in part because of difficulty planning meals. The Physical Health and Wellness experts at Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) put together this simple meal plan that is both healthy and delicious.

Easily kick those cravings to the curb this week with fresh herbs, flavorful seasonings, and quick cooking times. Fast food doesn’t need a drive through, just a good grill and great company.

And to make things even easier, we’ve created a printable shopping list at the bottom of this article.
