Menu Plan

I used to wake up dreading the question: What to cook today? Now and then, I stumble upon rotting food in the fridge. That was how disorganized I was back then. The idea of menu-planning seemed daunting at first. But, I decided to give it a try. I started to set aside half-an-hour every week to menu plan. And the result: A happy, healthy and well-fed family! And I am happy to declare that wastage is minimized in this household. I’ve never looked back since.

Why I menu plan:

  • Saves money: Menu-for-the-week helps me greatly in coming up with a grocery list and prevents me from buying items I don’t need.
  • Less wastage: I only buy things I need for the coming week.
  • Healthy meals: When I menu plan, I make sure the meals are well-balanced and wholesome. This greatly reduces the compulsive urge to dump junk food into the shopping cart.
  • Variety is the spice of life: I tend to bookmark all the recipes I want to try and never made them. Coming up with a menu plan gives me the avenue to put all the delectable recipes to some good use. The result: a very happy husband for having a wide variety of fares on the table for the week.

Just by spending less than an hour every week to come up with a menu plan makes a huge difference in our life.
