Week 10 meal planning tips are here! And it couldn’t come at a better time!
Now that everyone is done and over with spring break, it’s time to figure out what to eat for dinner!
Luckily there are always fast and simple recipes just waiting to be enjoyed.
Even though it’s back to the cooking “grind,” it’s so much easier when you meal plan!
Did I mention that meal planning is like second nature to me now?
I don’t get stressed out about what to make for dinner anymore at all.
Instead, I just make a plan and then stick to it. It’s really as easy as that.
What is the best day to meal plan?
It’s really up to you. I like to meal plan on Sunday to prep for the week, but that’s just how my brain works.
You can “start your week” any day that works best for you and your brain.
Meal planning – breakfast
I’ve told you this before, and it’ll be my stance forever – I don’t meal plan for breakfast.
Smoothies, cereal, toast…that’s about all we do.
And coffee – of course!
Meal planning – lunch
This may shock you as well..but I don’t meal plan for lunch.
I don’t have time or energy really, and none of us are home together to enjoy it, so we stick to leftovers or sandwiches.
