Meal planning? Trying to save money on food? Here are a few tips to remember to make this work:
- The first step is to always map out the menu for the week. Decide which recipe will be best for lunch and dinner at home. Write each one down to make sure you won’t forget anything when you do the grocery.
- Check your pantry, freezer, and refrigerator. Always practice the first in, first out method in any of the food you store in your kitchen. Make it a habit to check the expiration date. Make sure to put the ones expiring first on the outer part of the storage so it will be the first one you use when cooking.
- Enjoy grains more often. Rice, pasta, and oats are versatile foods that you can always experiment with. Stews and salads are great especially now that we are in for cold weather.
- Do your shopping all at once. Everytime you plan your meals ahead, make sure to make your grocery list at the same time too. This way, you can be sure that every ingredient in the dish you will be making for the week is all in your cart or already in your pantry.
