Wellness encompasses not just your physical health, but also your mental, spiritual, emotional, and environmental wellness. Meal Planning and Prepping is a great way to take care of your physical wellness by feeding your body meals prepared with thought and love.
Meal Planning and Meal Prep are closely related, but still a bit different. Meal Planning is the time you spend writing a menu and the accompanying grocery list. Meal Prepping is taking a few hours one day a week to prepare meals and ingredients for the rest of the week. Getting in the habit of planning ahead saves not only time but money too!
It’s a great way to ensure you are getting well rounded meals and no veggies go to waste. You will have virtually no clean up throughout the rest of the week, and you can even plan and prep for weeknight dinners where the kids can help- it’s easy to add ingredients to the pan or crockpot!
The basics of menu planning are fairly easy. Our menu is a mostly Paleo/Primal way of eating. We use a variety of veggies and proteins totally customizable to your tastes! This menu feeds 1 person for 5 days.
