Re: Meal Planning

I have to get back into this. It was so helpful when we were doing it. My husband and I eat differently now though so it's a bit confusing. One thing that really helps, though, is to write down a list of ideas for meals just before going to get groceries - basing meal ideas off stuff that's in the fridge or pantry that needs to be used up. I also didn't try to do "Monday is ----, Tuesday is ----," etc. Instead it was 7-8 dinner ideas that we could do any day depending on what we felt like eating. Also, you could write a list of things you eat a lot of; certain dishes are definitely weekly staples for us. I'm trying to do some freezer cooking too, to save on some time eventually.
