This is simple question that can create a lot of stress if you have to think about it every single morning alongside the daily morning rush. It’s also equally stressful when you have to dash to the grocery at 6:00pm after a harrowing day of emails and clients, just so you have the right ingredients for a dish.
But did you know that it will only take 15 minutes a week to create a weekly menu? I do this every Sunday morning, right before I set out to go to the grocery or the market. I sit down, grab my favorite recipe book, log on to a few recipe sites, open my phone’s recipe app, and I’m all set!
This 15 minute of strategizing helps me spend less time and LESS MONEY at the grocery. Best of all, it keeps my family healthy as it lessens our need to eat take out or fast food.
When you’re done planning, hang it up in the kitchen so that you can easily refer to it during meal preparation and so that you’ll never have to answer that age-old question again!
Create a chalkboard menu with chalkboard paint.
Write out your meal plan on a large framed glass. Don’t forget to use only whiteboard pens on these!
You can use a picture frame and a blank menu. I love this idea!
How about using a cork board?
Creating a meal plan takes a little time but ultimately saves time and stress!
