Everyone I talk to or watch on YouTube says the best way to save on a grocery bill is to meal plan and I agree. So why do I avoid it like the plague? Why does this conversation go on in my head?
I need to get May’s meal plan done.
First, though, I think I’ll scrub all of the grout in the bathroom. It really needs it.
After that I need to wash windows they are dirty.
Does the house need painting?
Even now, I came into the office and sat down at the desk to finally get my meal plan done so I can shop. Instead, I’m writing a blog about meal planning. O_0
There are two ways to think about planning meals and shopping. One is to plan exactly what you are going to eat for breakfast, lunch and snacks and make a list to get all the stuff needed for just those meals. The other is to buy a bunch of stuff to stock your pantry and just cook what you have. I guess you could do a combination of the two also. The problem always is that when it comes time to cook the food, I don’t want anything I’ve planned or have in the pantry and just want to drive to Chickfila and get grilled nuggets with a side salad. Keto Approved!
Do you meal plan? Do you stick to it? Let me know I’m not alone!
