Menu Planning 101

If you’re serious about eating like a food snob, eating seasonally, getting rid of packaging, or saving a pile of cash, you have to plan out your menus. Most people would rather die than shop or plan.  Food should be a joy not a burden. Try these menu plans. They’re all about minimum prep time and maximum flexibility. 

START HERE: Cook once, eat often.

TLDR: 

1. Stock your pantry.

2. Cook, Prep. Preserve.

3. Eat like a chef.

MENU 1

Stock your freezer with chicken meals

Roast chicken.  Bulk cook, and freeze for weeks of meals.  You’ll also use this chicken in meals throughout the week. Breakfast and lunch have options that’ll make picky eaters happy.  

 

MENU 2

Beef centered meals with veggie options

This menu centers around beef, but vegetarians get to eat, too! Breakfast and lunch are easy and feel like they came from a café. 

Menu 3

Alfredo, hot sandwiches, soups

Sauces and sandwiches shine here. If you made the chicken from Menu 1, you’ve got some tasty extras already prepped!.
