You need to get dinner on the highchair before your toddler suddenly decides she’s going to starve to death if she doesn’t eat right. this. second.
I’ve definitely been there, mama.
And you know what’s saved my booty time, and time again?
I know it sounds so boring, and simple and something your mom did in the 90s.
But the truth is that meal planning can ensure you and your family eat healthy, delicious meals most days of the week.
If you’re like me, some days you’re busy rushing around getting errands done, or working right up until just before dinner. So knowing that you already have the ingredients you need for a simple meal you can cook up quick can help make dinnertime less stressful (and decrease the chances you’ll order a pizza. Again.)
Being a mom and eating healthy can be really hard because planning and cooking healthy meals takes time – time that you honestly don’t have some days.
That’s why I like to have a plethora of healthy meal ideas at the ready and my meals (mostly) planned for the week so I have all the groceries I need, and I can just get in the kitchen and start cooking right away – without wondering what I should make in the first place and whether I have the ingredients I need to make it.
So if you want less chaos and more calm in your life, give my meal planning tips a try. (I’ve even given you some of my family’s fave healthy meal and snack ideas).
