The Two P’s: Plan & Prep
Meal planning and meal prepping are the single best ways to ensure success with eating healthier, avoiding the drive-thru or ordering carryout. So how do you plan and prep your meals for the week ahead?
- Sit down and plan out your meals
Creating a plan of what you’re eating for the week alleviates the stress of scrambling to plan dinner, just to realize you don’t have all the ingredients. It’ll also keep you from throwing in the dish towel and ordering takeout.
a. Monday – Friday Lunches: Greek Salad
b. Monday: Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas
c. Tuesday: Leftovers
d. Wednesday: Chicken & Vegetable Kabobs
e.Thursday: Taco Soup
f. Friday: Leftovers
g. Saturday: Chef’s Plate Pizza
h. Sunday: Chicken Broccoli Casserole
2. Order all the groceries you need
Now that you have a plan for what you and your family will eat for the week, make note of what you need. Do you need to stock up on canned goods, produce, or any meat? If so, either head to your local Woods Supermarket or order online and receive free rapid grocery pickup.
3. Set aside time to cook and prep
Here comes the hardest part…the cooking. While this may not be the most enjoyable part, it’s one of the most important. So, clean your fruit, chop those veggies, bake that casserole, and prepare your salad. Getting everything prepared ahead of time will not only keep you on track but it will save you time.
4. Reap the benefits
Throughout the week, you will reap the benefits of all your hard work. Whenever you’re running errands over lunch, or shuttling kids to practice in the evenings, you’ll be thankful you had a plan and were prepared. So, spend time doing what you love with the ones you loveBlog, Preparation | January 6th, 2023
