To me those two words frustrate me. I want to meal plan but just committing to do it is just something that I never do. I know it is very beneficial and can be money saving as well.
So what does meal planning involve?
It can be simple planning for your work week lunches to planning out a whole month of family dining. For me I need to start simple. I need to start with lunches and go from there. And I also need to focus on snack planning!
You need to ask yourself why are you meal planning? Are you trying to lose weight? Save money? Or are you just bored with what you have been eating and need more than quick fast food and frozen dinners? To me meal planning means eating healthier. I definitely could do better with what I eat. And again my snacks!
Are you on a low carb diet? Are you having to watch your salt intake or sugar? All these questions will apply to how you meal plan.
This week I am going to plan to meal plan. I want to enjoy my lunches again. So I encourage everyone to tell me what some of your favorite meal plans are. Feel free to share recipes or apps or websites that can be beneficial to others. Meal planning comes naturally to some and like me it can be intimidating. So bring on the ideas!
