I don’t know about you but I’m a mood eater. I very much pick my meals based on what I feel like eating that day. As an organized person this is definitely at odds with how I like to live day by day. In order to curb this problem I have devised a way to plan my meals but still eat what I feel like.
It looks something like this:
On the weekend I go shopping for what I need for the week. If you are in a rush be sure to check out the grocery pick up options they now have available at Walmart and Superstore.
Then on Monday morning I simply just choose which meal I want to eat that day out of the seven days. So for instance, if I feel like pizza on Monday I will cook that. As long as there are seven suppers planned out, the days that they are eaten is up to you.
A few more things I do to make meal planning easier is to:
- Have staples in the house like pasta, rice, sauces for cooking
- I also do a meat order for the year which supplies me with all my beef, pork, chicken and fish. This means that I am only buying dairy, fruits and vegetables and other odds and ends at the grocery store.
- Lastly, I also try to do a few bulk cooking days a year to have easy freezer meals which save on my time, are healthier options and also save money! A great choice all around.
