What Is Reverse Meal Planning And Will It Save Money?
Meal planning is simply a way for you to plan out what you are going to eat ahead of time to avoid the business and indecisiveness of not knowing at mealtime. It’s a way to have control over the chaos.
By planning out your actual meal plan and then your list, you will save money. It’s a given. You will not be wandering through the grocery store all willy-nilly trying to come up with things you might need.
Planning your meals and using what you buy is a crucial function of meal planning. Buying a package of chicken breasts and letting it sit in the refrigerator for too long because you don’t know what to do with it is heartbreaking when you have to chuck it.
Mealtime anxiety is a thing, guys. When you have no plan for dinner, and nothing has been taken out of the freezer, you feel it. Standing in front of the open refrigerator with zero ideas hurts your head, heart, and stomach.
Knowing that you want to have chicken twice next week ahead of time will allow you the opportunity to find a new recipe to try. It gives you the chance to check Youtube or Pinterest (or blogs) for that recipe you saw and pinned or saved.
