Hey you guys! I am thrilled to have Annemarie from the blog Real Food Real Deals to this fantastic guest post on meal planning for you!
“Putting together a weekly meal plan is one of the best habits to develop when you transition
to a homemade lifestyle. Having a meal plan in place makes life less stressful and it makes
mealtime healthier. Meal planning will help you to save money and time, too.” – Conquering
Your Kitchen, pp. 41 & 54
It would be nice if healthy, homemade food magically appeared on the table each night, but
unfortunately it doesn’t work that way. One of the most important things you can do for your
sanity is to plan out your meals ahead of time.
Sometimes that’s easier said than done. Most people don’t really like meal planning, so it’s easy
to put it off. I used to plan meals a couple days at a time, and I was constantly anxious about how
to get healthy food on the table for my family. If I didn’t know what we were having for dinner
on a particular night, I would be distracted until I figured it out.
