A glimpse at my current system for grocery buying and menu planning. The system changes every month/week, but this is where I’m at right now as I commit (yet again!) to a healthier eating plan.
1: Check fridge contents on Wednesday’s to assess what we have and need to use up.
2: Check store cupboard contents and update freezer inventory (for the same reason).
3: Make a menu plan using what we have, and then make a grocery list for what we need.
As you can see from the list above. Sometimes I make double the meal so that I have one to freeze. Other times I use something that is already made in the freezer. It’s all basic stuff, but I go off track with this so many times!
4: Buy groceries – sticking to the list!
That’s it! So simple IF I stick to the system!
On another note I pretty much have a 2 weekly menu plan ready to share with you. The plan is to get in a food routine, which may seem boring, but we eat the same things all the time and so it makes sense for us.
Let me know. How do you plan your menu’s? Do you have a great system that you can share with us?
