|This book was written especially for me.|
The first bit of advice that I really appreciate from the Dummies book is that it first suggested making a list of the things you like to eat. I think part of what was getting in the way of actually making a meal plan was this pressure that all of the meals had to be like, perfectly nutritious and made out of sustainable ingredients. But I think that my first meal plan is going to just include stuff I like to eat and then, once I'm used to meal planning, I can start gradually adding other ingredients.
|Why do vegetables go so badly so quickly? Why don't I eat them more?|
This grocery thing is really a huge challenge for me. But as the Dummies book says, grocery budget is one of the monthly regular things where you can really reduce your spending. And despite my good intentions, I still have a fridge full of spoiled produce that I never really got around to using.
So. Meal planning babysteps:
Thursday meal plan:
Breakfast; bagel with butter.
Lunch: egg salad sandwich.
Supper: pork chop and perogies and peas.
I promise that now I'm doing meal planning, the blog won't turn boring. It'll just be more food-centric for awhile. I am also pretty sure I will set a grocery budget for April of $200 total. Challenge!
