For the longest time, the thought of meal planning and prepping seemed like a daunting task. Some nights I can barely figure out dinner, so planning them out all at once seemed even more difficult…until I did.
Now, each week I sit down and write out our meals for the week and use that to create my shopping list. Since I’ve planned ahead, there’s only one trip to the grocery store.
As I’m putting away my groceries, I look ahead at the week to see what I can do now to help make mealtime a little easier during the week. Some things I do include:
- Chop fruits and veggies now for the week
- Roast veggies tonight for dinner and repurpose later in the week
- Throw chicken breasts in the slow cooker for easy meals all week.
It took me a few weeks to find my groove and now I never have to worry about dinner. It’s already planned, prepped and ready to go!
