Meal Planning

Meal planning is a sort of calendar for your groceries and meals. The same way you might plan out your week or month for work, meal planning takes care of that for each meal.

It can save you money if you're buying the right groceries and also save you a lot of time in the long run.

  • Meal prepping: The idea is you have certain meals that you want to eat over a week, and you cook them in bulk and refrigerate them until needed.
  • Cooking for one: Instead of taking 30-45 minutes to cook each meal every day, you can take 1-2 hours at the start of the week and cook many meals to refrigerate that can cover the whole week.
  • Cooking in bulk is another way to save time. Try and make a little extra on purpose with each meal.
