Do you struggle with meal planning? I do! I don’t find it practical for me, and I don’t think it saves me money. I do like to use Building Blocks to help me reduce meal prep times.
Then you can plan your meals around what you bought. The problem is that I never get around to the actual planning of the meals part. Or the remembering to prepare it part.
What I do is I take a few hours and create the building blocks of a few meals. I don’t need to decide in advance what dishes I will be making- I just prepare ingredients.
There is always something to eat in the fridge! You always have part of a meal started, so all you need is a side or topping to make it into a full meal. You are also much less tempted to buy take-out when most of the work is already done
If you are constantly being tempted by those pricey salad bars at Whole Foods or a café near you, then buy some “fun” things to spice up your salad: croutons, nuts, olives, sunflower seeds. The good thing is that those usually last, so it won’t go bad if you don’t eat it that week!
As a working mother, my goal is to get a decent supper on the table every night.
