In today’s post I have a free meal plan and some tips that will inspire you with meal planning ideas that can improve your life this fall!
What meals do you like to eat in the fall? I happen to love the developer. I will eat soup every day until spring, especially if it is mixed with various ingredients (sometimes it means using leftovers or cleaning the pantry, and other times we have ingredients in our hands before our eyes).
Our meal planning schedule will help you at any time
When our kids were young, we found that meal planning was essential, not only for a hectic schedule, but also for saving money! I feel like it makes a lot of sense to set up for dinner only when the kids are young and get busy with school and sports again. Our kids are grown now and it’s just both of us, but yes, now our husband drives (and cooks!) dinner.
Meal planning has been an important part of our budgets and schedules throughout our lives. I’m all for simplicity in any way possible, while making everyday life less hectic in many ways. No one likes to feel tired, unprepared, or unprepared. Better planning for meals like meals helps us feel more organized, which frees up more time in our schedule to do the things we love.
Food planning helps us feel better
Every season of life can be different in what you prepare, and how you handle shopping, cooking, etc. but planning to eat healthy food is always important. What our family eats has evolved over time as we have learned more about health and what our bodies need at different times of life. We gradually but continuously adjust our choices to prioritize what we feel is best.
We also started exploring foods more closely when our son was a toddler and had strong reactions to certain foods. Change doesn’t happen overnight, but it’s a priority to listen to what our bodies need and be ready to adapt. For example, I started gluten free a few years ago when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, and we are also mostly dairy free. And then one of our daughters is vegan, so we incorporate more plant-based recipes.
In my book, I shared some of my health journey and offered many tips and ideas on how we can take better care of ourselves and our home. I know I feel better when I eat better! And we eat better when we think ahead (it’s too much to try to make sure it’s less healthy to go out or eat when you don’t have food ready at home).
Homework helps us prioritize our health at home
Food should provide us with the nutrients we need for health, but planning ahead can be good in other ways as well. It is an opportunity to use temporary materials creatively and find a more interesting presentation. I shared a few simple ideas in my book The Beautiful Life!
Even if we eat something with a lower nutritional value, like a pie 🙂 (find our favorite gluten-free pie recipe here), a premeditated plan, because it can still inspire us in interesting ways. Therapy can be simply slow to savor the whole experience more, and the priority of gathering the family together. A meal plan helps us to create more meaningful moments around food in our home, which we plan to savor more slowly.
Prioritizing a meal plan this time will help you be more careful with your diet, food budget and nutrition and be more organized and prepared for the day. Less homework, too!
