Happy Friday! Sorry, this is late… I forgot what day it was, whoops! I genuinely have no clue how I’ve done that but there you go!
I’m a BIG fan of meal planning! Being able to save money, and avoid takeaways is great for our waistline and our budget too. For us, the main area where we go wrong with eating healthy is not planning dinners and not meal planning before we go shopping. Since we have become more motivated and begun meal planning, we feel more organised at home and we are eating healthier too. As well as sharing my own meal plan this week I’m inviting other bloggers to take part and share their meal plans. Hopefully, this will give our readers lots of meal planning inspiration!
Meal planning helps us to have low food waste which is really important to me. I feel really sad if we have to throw something in the bin, thinking of both the environmental impact and the fact that other people struggle to afford food. I am always trying to take steps to make sure we are avoiding overspending on groceries.
Meal planning allows me to remove some of the day to day stress from my life. Often, by 3 pm, I’m tired from juggling work, nursery drop-off/pick-up and don’t have the motivation to think of what we want to eat for dinner. Also, my husband works shifts so he goes out to work at 5 pm sometimes. This means we need an early dinner and it falls right in the middle of Daisy’s bedtime routine.
By sharing meal plans we can all keep ourselves accountable and inspire one another with new ideas and recipes.
