Meal planning is something that I have really come to enjoy in the last year. Meal planning keep us from buying takeaways, helps us eat well and has become an enjoyable part of each week. I love being able to look at this week’s meal plan, shop for all the groceries & know that we have nice meals to choose from.

Meal planning allows me to remove some of the stress from our daily life. I’m able to look each morning and see what food I fancy eating. Also, if we are going to be busy then I can choose a slow cooker dinner and get that on in the morning. This allows us to sit down to a hot meal with minimal effort at a busy time of day.

By holding myself accountable, with a meal plan, I am making healthier choices for us. We are cutting out on the takeaways, preparing food from scratch and saving ourselves money too. I have switched from shopping at Tesco to shopping at Aldi and this has helped our grocery budget too.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #53

I’ll be planning 6 meals per week each week. This leaves 1 day per week for eating leftovers, dining out or visiting friends and family for dinner. We don’t have set days for our meals, as I prefer to decide in the morning which of the meals we want and what fits in with our day’s plans.
