When the clock is ticking and we are running out of time, I hear it very often “I was so busy I forgot to eat!” Or “What a headache to think what am I going to cook tonight!”
I’d say planning our meals will solve most of these every day struggles. It seems like planning that occasional treat or a special meal is ok but then it feels like it is a very hard task to sit down and plan our everyday food.
I find it really helpful and cost effective when I plan for the whole week, prepare my shopping list and then as I said in a previous blog I cook mostly over the week-end. I wish this is religiously done week in week out, but of course sometimes I do get trapped in the no-time-for-this ‘excuse’ and then annoyingly find myself in a big wonder of what are my meals for the day.
Time management – is what Jas always hammers in my head. True!
I still have not mastered this bit entirely, but I believe that making priorities and first things first is the first step towards avoiding last minute, less healthy meals. So, once a week I make time to sit down for a few minutes and organise myself with a week-menu kind of thing and start writing my shopping list. Towards the end of the month we like to use up whatever is left in the cupboard/fridge/freezer and make recipes out of them so we won’t bulk up unnecessarily or end up with many out-dated products.
