Tips of the week
You make double the number of breakfast burritos this week. Then freeze extras for a quick and easy breakfast on the go! Perfect for busy work and school mornings.
When you’re ready to eat them, reheat in the microwave for 3-4 minutes per side. Burritos will keep for 1-2 months in the refrigerator. We love delicious freezer meals! !
Meal Plan Benefits
There’s nothing worse than fear when family members ask, “What’s for dinner?” And your answer is “I don’t know”. A week meal plan eliminates that completely, and it’s the number one benefit in my book!
In addition to developing a game plan, there are Several other benefits meal plan, include:
- cost: When you have a plan and a specific grocery list in place, you can eliminate the cost of wasting on impulse items or products you never use.
- reduce waste: No money wasted, no food wasted! Having a regular shopping list will help avoid both problems.
- type: Our meal plans specifically include a variety of options, including Mexican, Italian, dinner breakfast, and more! You can let your family taste a variety of cuisines.
- No indecision: Did you know there is “indecision fatigue”? The idea is that when you can’t decide something (like what to do for dinner), it actually tires you out. But when dinner is already planned, you can avoid indecision altogether!
- healthy: When you plan/anticipate making well-rounded meals, you’re more likely to actually make them than to default to a convenient box lunch or unhealthy fast food!
As you can see, meal planning has many benefits!
