Meal Planning Monday: My Weekly "Prep Day"

If you’ve been following my Monday Meal Planning series for long, you’ll know that this whole meal planning process doesn’t come easy for me. I’m constantly learning how to do things to make getting healthy dinners on the table easier.  One of the things I struggle with most (besides breakfast) is having certain foods prepared ahead of time. It never fails that the chicken isn’t thawed for dinner or that the beans are still sitting in the pantry dry or there’s no homemade yogurt in the house. Ugh!

Meal Planning Monday: My Battle For A Healthy Breakfast

Preparing healthy breakfasts for my family may be the hardest part of sticking to my meal plan and eating a nutritious diet. Nutritionists recommend that you eat something within 30 minutes of waking up. For my kids, this isn’t a problem. For me and my husband, it is.

I have a recipe binder where I store printed recipes that I’ve tried (or want to try), and over the years, it’s become a complete disaster which hasn’t helped when time to meal plan comes. Speaking of meal planning… last month I shared how meal...

Monday Meal Planning: Why I’m Trying Out A New Real Food Meal Plan Subscription

Meal planning is a struggle for me. Plain and simple. I’ve never really liked it, and it doesn’t come naturally to me. However, I have seen serious value in doing it. Not only do I know what’s for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but it helps us to save money by eating at home more often and wasting less food. I suppose the real struggle I have with meal planning comes down to finding the time to do it. I’m talking about sitting down with a blank calendar, cookbooks (or online recipes), a grocery list… all of it, and planning...
