Back to my post!
Do you find dinner time stressful?
I do. I used to be good at planning menus and even cooking for a month. Then BOOM we were empty nesters and the world was our restaurant. Surely we reasoned it was cheaper for two people to eat out than to cook especially if you added in the time to plan, shop and chop.
Guess what? It's not. Not only does it cost more let me tell you that lifestyle messes with your body weight. I was a hot mess! Exercise became mandatory! Shudder!
Then I found Dr. Mel and her menu planning system! Oh boy--yeah, my first thought was here we go another thing to figure out and it's going to take me forever. I do like the idea of organizing--or rather buying things to organize, starting with a clipboard, a label maker and maybe a few containers... Sorry I went shopping there for a moment.
Back to Dr. Mel--she has SIX kids and she homeschools, writes books and hosts is starting a podcast, so I know she doesn't have hours of free time to do meal planning. So this week I snagged her free book The Once and For All Meal Plan.
Dr. Mel's book told me how to collect the (math term alert) data and how to use the information.
Remember the book is free right now if you sign up for her newsletter. What do you have to lose but less time working your brain on answering the question, "What's for dinner?"
I just got one step closer to being that Proverbs 31 woman.(Too bad there are 1000 more steps to go before I get to be her!)
