Back in January I created a list of 52 challenges for the year. One of the goals was to create and use a meal plan system. It hasn’t consistently happened yet. I’ve made menus a few times but any where from two days to a week later I wasn't following it.
I know the menu plans are good. They help bring creativity to meals, save time and money, and stop impulse buys and too many meals out. I know the pros for using meal plans I just can’t seem to do it faithfully.The systems just haven't stuck. I want that to change...and the change starts now.
I'm looking for something that will work. Do you a meal plan method that that works? What is it and why do you think it works for you? Do you plan one, two, three, or four weeks in advance? Do you rotate your plans every few weeks? When you use the menu plan is it just an idea like “Monday = chicken” or is it more detailed with a specific recipe and side dish suggestions? Please share your success or mutual frustration in the comments. This week I am going to do some research, find what the internet food gurus say about the subject, read you suggests and hopefully create something that will work for me.
Next Friday I’ll post the new meal plan solution
