Meal planning helps my family to save money, to eat more healthful meals instead of grabbing something on the go, and for us to plan ahead. I use Google calendars to plan my menu. Since I already use it as my main source of keeping track of our events it’s easy for me to plan which nights we want to cook at home. I simply added another calendar called “Dinner” and keep track of our dinner plans there.
I go ahead and pull the link that goes directly to the recipe and place it in the location section of the Google event. That way, when I’m ready to start dinner I can simply pull up the calendar on my phone or iPad and find the recipe. Instead of taking time to scroll through my Pinterest boards.
It makes the whole process quick and simple. What is your favorite way to plan out your meals?
