It’s been a long day at the office. You got stuck in traffic on your way to work, were late for a meeting with a new client, found out you missed the deadline for some important paperwork, and traffic was atrocious coming home. You barely had the energy to make the boxed mac and cheese and hot dogs that you’re all eating for dinner. Read more about Taking the Stress Out of Family Meal Time.
And there are the kids, refusing to eat it.
And the partner, picking at their plate, wishing a kid’s meal wasn’t their dinner.
We’ve all been there. Sometimes it seems downright impossible to feed your whole family meals that are satisfying, yummy, and pleases the picky eaters of the group. It’s especially hard when you don’t have the extra energy to put into making a fun dinner for the family, or don’t have time to run to the grocery store for the week.
But what if there was a way to prepare for those busy, not so great days? What if there was a simple, customized option for planning out meals for the whole family? What if you could plan a week’s worth of dinners, prep them, and have them ready to cook after only spending an hour in the kitchen?
It may seem as though that option will never be available.
But now, they are. And at the click of a button.
Prepping up for meal prep
You can create a Custom Dinner Meal Prep action plan to suit your family and your busy lifestyle. Every meal plan will be unique and come with a grocery list, eliminating the possibility of you dropping the list somewhere in the parking lot of the store, only to have it get caught by the wind and fly off just before you grab it. Plus, if you find a recipe that the whole family loves, it’s easy to save and share because it’s all on your device.
Your planning doesn’t have to stop with the meals. Since each week’s worth of meals is designed only to take an hour of prep work, you’ll have extra time and energy to devote to other important things, like updating the family calendar, so you don’t forget picture day this year or making sure your daughter remembered to do her homework for the weekend. Planning ahead can really help make the home schedule run smoothly and prevents any emergency dashes out the door.
It’s impossible to do all that if you’re too busy scrambling around at the last second, trying to make it all work. By devoting yourself to a Custom Dinner Meal Prep schedule, you can effectively alleviate excess stress in the family circle, making room for what’s really important: quality family time and supporting each other.
Not every week is going to be peachy. Everyone has their off days or those days where everything seems to be going wrong. But planning meals so you can enjoy them with your family and take time to breathe can definitely help ease some tension.
