How to get A Hold of Meal Planning

I've been thinking a lot about our take home meals. They really can be helpful when planning out your budgets, meals and dining out. Here are some reasons planning out your meals is a good deal. Remember it is just a plan - and plans can change!

  1. Saves time: Meal planning allows you to plan ahead, which can save you a significant amount of time throughout the week. You can prepare meals in advance, making it easier to stay on track with your schedule. We off a prepared meal every Wednesday.
  2. Saves money: Planning your meals in advance can help you save money by avoiding impulsive purchases and reducing food waste. That bag of chips are the checkout - one of my favs!
  3. Healthier eating: Meal planning allows you to choose healthier options and control portion sizes, making it easier to maintain a balanced and nutritious diet.
  4. Reduces stress: When you plan your meals in advance, you eliminate the stress of figuring out what to cook for dinner every night.
  5. Improves productivity: By having a plan for your meals, you can focus on other important tasks and goals, such as work, exercise, or spending time with your family.
  6. More variety: Meal planning encourages you to try new recipes and ingredients, which can add more variety to your diet.
  7. Better for the environment: Planning your meals can reduce food waste, which helps to conserve natural resources and reduce your environmental impact.
  8. More enjoyable meals: When you plan your meals in advance, you can take the time to enjoy the process of cooking and eating, making mealtimes more enjoyable. Our meals are prepared - you can read email while it warms up!
  9. Supports weight loss goals: Meal planning can help you stay on track with your weight loss goals by controlling portion sizes and avoiding high-calorie, unhealthy foods.
  10. Encourages family time: Meal planning can bring your family together for shared meals, promoting a sense of togetherness and strengthening your relationships. In my household, I have one child that eats all the time and another that doesn't like anything. So sometimes this one is a bust.
