Meal planning is hard. I don’t know why.
Seems like it should be easy, right? We know what food we like to eat. We know, basically, what we should eat. So why, when we start a grocery list and think about our meals for the week, do we suddenly forget all of it?
Every week, when I ask my boys what they want for dinner, they give me 2 answers: Pizza and burgers.
And yet, I ask them every week.
It’s even harder when you throw in trying to save money and eat healthy. Sure, I want cheesecake and steak on the menu every week. But if I keep eating like that, my budget is shot and my weeks are numbered.
I’ve been saving money and eating healthy for over 10 years. Our family of 5 eats real food – most of it organic, local, and/or gluten-free – on the same amount of money we would get if we were on food stamps.
