Over the last few months, C and I have realised the benefit of meal planning! By planning the meals you want to cook the following week and planning the days you won’t be cooking, we have realised a few things:
- Weekly meal planning takes the stress away from the dreaded question ‘what should we make for dinner tonight’.
- Allows you to cook meals that fit into you diet plans (for us, that is LCHF) and not just randomly throwing things together.
- Cuts down (almost 90%) food waste.
- (and my favourite point) You save money.
Seriously – why has it taken me so long to figure this out?
It was recently my birthday…I have hit my last year of my 20s and to be honest it does not bother me at all. I have never been the sort of person who plans her life around her age I have always just gone with the flow and taken the opportunity that life has given me– and I have found that has suited me very well indeed.
However, I would be lying if I did not admit that I had a few episodes of anxiety running up to my birthday and a few niggling brain gremlins that I couldn’t keep quite in my more vulnerable moments. “What, your almost 30 and you don’t have a career?”, “This is the time to be making a name for yourself and start really making money!”, “What exactly do you contribute to society?”, “What are you doing with your life?”, “where is that bikini body you keep talking about?”….and the list continues!
