Implementing a meal planning strategy into your life doesn't have to be a big chore. You can go as big and elaborate as you want and plan out all your weekly meals or use it as a general guideline. For my weekly dinner plan I just simply write down the title of seven dinner recipes I want to make for that week. I then write down which cookbook the recipe is located in and the page number it can be found on and thats it. The day before I want to go shopping I go through my recipes to see what ingredients I need and viola.....I am set for the week. Super simple...super easy and such a time and money saver. One of the things I like about being a part of the FaceBook group is that it is a great place to get ideas and new recipes or even share some of your own. The group is also a great way to help you stay motivated to keep up with meal planning. It is easy to say you want to start meal planning, maintain it for a couple of weeks and than fall back into old habits. With the group it makes it fun to stick with the meal plan and constantly have a fresh pool of ideas.
