Meal Planning Resources

 

 

If there is ONE tip I could give you to save money on groceries (as the costs continue to rise) and eat healthier, it would be to utilize meal planning!! By planning your family’s meals ahead of time you not only have a plan in place, but you can grocery shop for only those NEEDED ingredients instead of impulse buying. You also eliminate the last minute pizza or Chinese takeout order and instead eat a healthy, wholesome meal. I have put together an entire page of my favorite meal planning resources that I myself use for our family of 6. I meal plan every Sunday and it has changed the way our household runs. We sit down together as a family for dinner every night. It changes the dynamic and allows for some amazing family conversation too! Need some ideas? Grab my free conversation starters printable! My kids LOVE doing this!

Grass fed beef, organic chicken and heritage bred pork delivered to your door for less than $6 a meal.

 

Since we have been moving away from GMO products that also means we like to buy grass-fed beef, organic chicken and heritage bred pork products. They are VERY hard to find (in fact less than 1% of the US beef products are grass-fed) so ButcherBox has been a godsend! They deliver amazing cuts of grass-fed beef, organic chicken and the tastiest pork I’ve ever had to my doorstep each month. Want to try it? I’ve talked them into giving you FREE non-GMO BACON and $10 off when you do!
