As I’m sure you’ve already realised, meal planning is a great way to reduce food waste, save money and to try new recipes! My meal planning started over 10 years ago when we started getting a veg box & I had to plan how to use it’s contents. I quickly got fed up of writing it out on paper every week (along with references to the appropriate recipe book & page number) and started putting it into a spreadsheet so I could easily copy & paste the contents, and link to online recipes.
After a while I started investigating blogs, as I liked the idea of being able to have my own adapted versions of recipes, being able to categorise them, and having them easily available for DH to access! I started off on Blogger, but moved here on WordPress after a few months.
I used to have a page listing recipes I wanted to try, but this has now been largely replaced by Pinterest boards. In the hope of speeding up the meal planning process & making it less of a chore I created a page of ideas for every meal of the week.
How do you do your meal plans? I would love to hear what works for you!
