You’re tired. Your kid needs some attention from Mom. The hubs is still on his his way home. It’s 6:30 PM and after a long day of work, you need to get dinner ready…but have zero motivation to do it. If it weren’t for that twinge of guilt you get every time you pop a frozen pizza in the oven, you’d actually let yourself eat these ‘easy meals’ every night because it gives you a little time to relax.
I know the feeling, because this is me every.single.workday.
And that’s when you need meal planning the most. Because meal planning is a life saver. Scratch that—food prep is a life saver. When you’ve run ragged and are dying from hanger but you can’t get more than ten minutes free in the evening, you realize that food prep is a LITERAL lifesaver. Maybe not your own, but someone’s. 🙂
And if you’re anything like me, you WANT to eat healthy. And you LIKE to eat healthy. But you need it to be EASY. So, lemme tell ya somethin’…
You.are.in.luck. Because food prep and meal planning just got easier! Like, step-by-step instructions for food prepping on the weekends, and simply throwing it all together in the evening. Can I get a ‘hell yea?!’ Let me preface by saying these are not your fancy-shmancy ‘make a different recipe for every meal of the day for every day of the week’ meal plans. Those plans seriously make my head spin. I don’t know who’s got time for that.
These are plans for real people with real lives. Busy lives. Lives that don’t include spending hours in the kitchen during the week. In fact, these lives rarely include the ability to COOK for every meal during the week.
I know what it’s like to rush out the door in the morning and be tempted to grab a breakfast burrito from Mickey D’s. But, guess what? You can prep two weeks worth of burritos in just 30 minutes on the weekend. I also know what it’s like to have zero motivation to spend 20–30 minutes in the kitchen putting together a healthy meal for dinner. But, guess WHAT? With a little bit of effort on Sundays and one of these meal plans, you don’t have to spend much time in the kitchen at all. And you can eat healthy! Oh, and it’s probably cheaper than whatever you’re doing now. Can you really beat that? (That’s a challenge.)
