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.

Good Debt vs Bad Debt

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.

Good Debt vs Bad Debt

Saves Money

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.

Saves Food Wastes

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.

Reduces Stress

Having a meal plan saves so much time.  It allows you to defrost and throw in the crockpot or Instant Pot earlier in the day or prep a casserole to throw in the oven after work.

Saves Time

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.

Allows For Creativity

It’s a given that real homemade food is just healthier.  When you order out or buy convenience foods, you don’t always know what’s in them, or you can’t pronounce the stuff that is.
