Meal planning may sound like a good idea, but what if you aren’t a planner? Here is an easy tip that can help you plan out dinner for a week!
You actually did it! You made dinner… AT HOME
You may start to think a few things to yourself
“I could eat this all the time”
“I don’t even need to write this recipe down it was so good”
“There is no way I could get tired of this”
“My kids love this meal”
BUT [insert 3 weeks]
- You are burnt out on that one dish of chicken alfredo
- Now you have left overs you don’t know what to do with
- You have no idea what you have ever cooked before that could taste good
- “If I eat this again, I am going to die”
SO WHAT’S THE ANSWER???
A dinner diary: Now you may think, “Wow I could have thought of that myself”. And you are probably right! Here are a few ways to keep track of your yummy dinners you don’t want to forget.
1. Get a notebook: write out the ingredients and the recipe
2. Take a picture of the ingredients and final project. This may take a little less time than writing it all out
3. Make a time lapse video of the process if there is no time for stopping!
So now, instead of worrying about what you are going to eat, just grab your notebook or your phone and check out what you have liked before for some inspiration. We know the idea of meal planning can seem boring or even scary but using this tip can take a daunting task and turn it into a fun one! Like choosing your dinner from a restaurant menu. Before you know it you will have a solid list of go-to dinners.
Bonus tip: keep your notebook in the kitchen so it doesn’t get lost!
