I’m just gonna ask…do you have a Meal Plan? If you come here for Meal Planning inspiration thank you. I hope you are able to take some of these ideas (or my Plant-Based Meal Plan Pinterest Board’s ideas) and make them into something that works for you. If you want to meal plan but haven’t gotten around to it stay tuned. Today I’m giving you 3 Reason YOU need a Meal Plan!
1. Meal Planning Saves Time
While it’s true, you need to set aside some time to Meal Plan that time is an investment that saves time all week long. After you’ve planned a few weeks of meal plan you will be able to create one very quickly. I can create one for my family in a few minutes. I’m willing to get you can set aside 20-30 minutes and have a Meal Plan ready for the week.
2. Meal Planning Saves Money
How many times each week do you go out to eat instead of eating at home? You could have had a home cooked meal for a fraction of the cost.
3. It gets Easier with Practice
The more Meal Plans you create the easier it gets. You don’t have to start off fancy or complicated, just start! You also don’t need a new Menu each week. Make a few then alternate them. You have learned how to do a lot of things that are harder than this. Whether you keep a list in your phone, scratch it on the back on an envelope or buy special products I don’t think you’ll regret it.
If you need more practical help I’ve written several posts that offer very practical tips that will have you planning your meals in no time.
