Have you ever tried a meal kit subscription? I never have, but I can understand the appeal. The kits include everything you need to prepare your meal - no last-minute realization that you're missing mushrooms or beef broth.
Of course, you get the same results if you plan meals and make a shopping list.
Over the past few weeks, you’ve created a list easy-to-prepare breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. These don’t have to be your only options, but chances are that these will be your go-to meals.
Planning these types of meals means that when you’re busy you won’t waste time and energy thinking about what you can eat. And, you’ll rely on takeout meals less often (or not at all).
Today, create a master grocery list of the items you buy all the time, including the foods you need to create your go-to meals. If you want to eat salads at lunch, then you’ll want salad fixings on your list, so you don’t forget them at the grocery store.
It’s much easier to peek into your pantry and refrigerator, see if you have something, and then scratch off items you still have than to remember to write things down.
