Meal planning during a pandemic has slowly shifted from being a choice to that of it being a necessity. With our busy schedules, we more often than not tend to overlook eating on the right time. Planning a daily menu doesn’t have to be expensive.
There are only three things to remember when you are meal planning: eating breakfast is the key to starting your day so it is important to never skip it, lunch should be always healthy, and during dinners, make sure to not overeat. With various online groceries in Davao City, planning meals ahead has never been this easy. Here’s our guide for a one week healthy meal plan you can no doubt do at home too.
You will want to start your week right with light, healthy meals. Sundays are mostly for family bonding time activities so make sure to get that much needed exercise after an entire week of sitting on a chair.
Breakfast: Bread and Margarine, Hot Choco (nutella for the Kids)
Lunch: Corned Beef with green peas and rice
Snacks: Assorted Nuts (Boy Bawang) and Orange Juice
Dinner: Monggo with Pork and rice
For Monday, you’d want to have a full meal from morning to dinner. It is called a Manic Monday for a reason. Every monday feels like all of the workload just keeps on pouring, endlessly. So make sure to prepare a meal that will help the family get by.
Breakfast: Egg and Bulad with Rice
Lunch:Chicken Curry with rice

Breakfast: Longganisa, Egg, and Rice
Lunch: Lumpia Shanghai and Rice
