Meal Planning Made Simple

Do you stress out about meal planning for you and your family? Eating healthy always sounds good in the beginning, but turning all that talk into action is where most people get stuck. Below you will find my favorite resources & tips for meal planning and meal preparation.

5 Tips for Successful Meal Planning

1. Don’t cook more than your family can eat in 3-4 days.

2. Prep meal components, not full meals. Try to prep foods that can be used in several different meals.

3. Cook now. Season later. Cook things plain and add spices when assembling your meals.

4. Multi-task. While things are baking in the oven, you can be chopping veggies and cooking something on the stovetop.

5. Cook extra when you’re not busy and fill up your freezer for those busy weeks when you can’t prep as much as you’d like to.
