On Sundays...WE MEAL PLAN!
Since the weekends are by far the worst days to grocery shop, on Sundays WE MEAL PLAN!
One thing that’s great about the Luxurious Lifestyle Planner is that it includes a monthly Meal Planner and Grocery Shopping List. This way you can save money by knowing exactly what you plan to buy at the grocery store a head of time and know what meals you’re going to make for the rest of the week.
Most importantly, meal planning can help re-direct the way you eat and change your food buying habits! Imagine being able to save money, not wonder what you’re going to cook the next day and eat healthier!
According to Mealz.com, here are a few reasons why it’s important to meal plan!
You Buy, Prepare & Eat Healthier Food
Education is key when it comes to buying and preparing healthy meals for yourself and your family. And, meal planning is the perfect solution for people who find it difficult to buy healthy food when they go shopping.
When you plan your meals, you become much more organized and become much more aware of the money you are spending on food each week. You will get into the habit of buying what you need, instead of buying what you want.
It Saves you Money
This means you are less likely to waste money on unnecessary food items such as snacks, sweets and other treats, which is a common problem for shoppers who don't have an organized plan. Meal planning will also reduce the number of times you need to go to a store to buy food, which adds up to a large sum of money over the course of a month.
Meal Planning Adds Variety to Your Diet
A large number of people eat the same bland, unhealthy food every day. By creating a meal, you get to experiment with different types of food you may never have considered eating.
It Reduces Stress and Anxiety
Most people live hectic lives and have a wide range of personal pressures and concerns. Rushing to buy food for your next meal should not be one of these worries. With a planner, you are more likely to buy your food well in advance of the time you will prepare and eat it. This means you will always be prepared for future meals and won't unnecessarily raise your blood pressure levels, panicking about what food to buy for your family's next meal.
