Weekly Family Meal Plan #30

Melissa says she has always meal planned, however this has become more important since their baby arrived.

Now we are down to one income meal planning ensures we aren’t spending too much at the supermarket and also prevents us from buying take out and wasting money. It’s a great way to ensure we are eating a variety of meats and vegetables through the week and come dinner time I don’t need to think what to cook and I can quickly prepare dinner whilst my daughter is sleeping.
