Plan better to eat at home more often. #home #mealsplanning

Planning for last minute meals so you can eat at home is not something most of us think about.

When you are short on time, the easy decision is to grab food at a restaurant.

But how many times are you doing this each week? Do you know you are wasting money and ruining your health? Did you know there is a way to make ‘eat at home’ dinners even when you are short on time?

All you need is a little bit of planning.

Here are 4 quick tips to get you started with being able to eat at home more often.

1// Have a list of recipes your family loves.

By keeping this list of family loved meals handy, you will always have a list to look at and choose from when you are short on time.

2// Highlight the ‘last minute’ meals that are easy to make.

Highlighting the super simple meals on your list will help them stand out when you are in a pinch and need to find something to make fast.

3// Work the easy meals into your weekly routine.

If you know you are going to have some busy evenings, be sure to work these easy ‘last minute’ meals into your week night meals. Then the pressure to find something to cook isn’t there. You already will know what to do that night.

4// Make sure you always have those ingredients on hand.

For the handful of recipes that you know are super quick and simple, be sure to keep those ingredients on hand. Either in the freezer or the pantry. Then when you realize you don’t have a plan for dinner, you will have what you need to make something fast.

Organization is key to having a better plan for eating at home more often.  Having quick easy solutions on hand and ready to go can save you from having to eat out when you are in a pinch.  #momlife #organization #kitchen
