Have you ever gone to the store, bought groceries, filled your fridge and then stopped the next day to pick up a “meal-togo”? You need a plan! A food shopping and cooking plan will help you feel less stressed about what to feed your family at the last minute. Try these tips:
- Plan meals that are easy to make. Slow cooker meals are super-simple – just fill up the slow cooker and turn it on before you head out the door in the morning and you’ll have a hot, satisfying meal ready to eat when you arrive home.
- Make the most of leftovers. Tonight’s roast chicken could be tomorrow’s soup, pasta, sandwich or salad.
- Prepare ahead. Get some of the ingredients ready the night before to help with the mealtime rush.
- Stock up. Fill your fridge, freezer and cupboards with basic food items so ingredients are readily available.
Make your plan and stick to it!
