It’s 5 o’clock. What’s for dinner?
Do you find yourself struggling for dinner ideas at the last minute or heading through the drive-through after work? If you do, consider creating a menu plan to help take the stress out of mealtime.
Menu planning is preparing a written calendar of meals in advance. It can be as simple as writing down a dinner schedule for the week or as complex as including breakfast, lunch, and dinner for an entire month. Whichever route you take, menu planning helps take the guesswork out of meals, which can be a huge time and money-saver.
Why should you plan a menu?
- Eliminates the 5 pm, “what’s for dinner” question
- Potential for more variety
- Save money
- Waste less
