When you take the time to plan out a menu for the week, you actually save time in the long run and while grocery shopping. No more wandering around the grocery store from aisle to aisle planning your menu on the fly or staring into the refrigerator or pantry trying to come up with ideas.
Part of the menu planning process is to look at what food items you already have on hand as well as making a grocery shopping list. By using up items you already have in your kitchen as well as sticking to a shopping list, less food goes to waste and you are less likely to make impulse purchases, thereby saving you money.
Stop worrying over what’s for dinner every night with a menu plan. You won’t believe the weight that will be lifted off your busy shoulders when you no longer have to stress every night about what you are going to make for dinner.
When you plan out your menus a week at a time, you are more likely to eat a wider variety of foods. There is a balance between creatively reusing ingredients to eliminate food waste, yet eating a varied diet to get all of the needed nutrients.
