Menu planning has been such an important part of helping to feed my family healthy and is such a money saver as it helps us to budget and to practice the use what we already have principle.
If you've not started menu planning or maybe not been very consistent with it, I encourage you to give it a try.
Below are some links to help get you started and give you some ideas for various menu options. Sometimes the hardest part is getting ideas of what to make.
My favorite tip is to sit down with your family – maybe when you're already at the dinner table – with pen and paper in hand and write down some of their favorite meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Now as a real foodie you are going to tweak them and make sure they follow the guidelines for real food, plug them in your menu and add the items needed to your grocery list.
