Meal planning is a great way to save money and time, while also ensuring you and your family stay healthy. Here are some of my best tips for meal planning:Make a list of meals you already know your family enjoys. This will help you get started and make planning easier.
  1. Think about how much time you have available to cook each day and plan your meals accordingly.
  2. Create a grocery list of all the ingredients you’ll need for the week’s meals so you don’t forget anything.
  3. Take advantage of bulk shopping opportunities to save money.
  4. Look for recipes that use similar ingredients so you maximize the efficiency of grocery shopping and cooking.
  5. Try to plan meals that will generate leftovers so you have an easy meal option for another night.
  6. Cook once and eat twice - plan for meals that will generate leftovers that can be used for another meal in the week.
  7. Plan for meals that are easy and quick to prepare on nights you’re short on time.
  8. Consider meal prepping on the weekend to save time during the week.
  9. Have some easy, healthy snacks on hand for when you’re feeling hungry between meals.
I cannot over emphasize the importance of meal planning and as a busy mom of 3, it is one the things that keeps me structured. I use a meal planner and that makes life 100% easier for my family. You can download my meal planner aka Nigerian Food Timetable  HERE
