Moms who also work inside or outside of the home have even more responsibilities that can hinder the meal planning process, leaving us with substandard meals on the table or, as is often the case, a meal that consists of unhealthy fast food. Moms today have too much to do with household responsibilities, work, children’s activities such as soccer and cheerleading practice, and all the other jobs that moms must inevitably do.
Fortunately for moms who find themselves in this situation, there is a creative and affordable solution available. Hire a professional meal planner!
No, it is not as extravagant and expensive as it sounds. In fact, just the opposite is true. There are services available on the web that provide busy moms with weekly menus that include complete recipes, quick breakfast ideas, tips on preparing easy lunch recipes, grocery lists for easy shopping, and nutritional information. Every week moms can literally forget about meal planning and let a professional planner do the busy work for them, ensuring that meals are always well planned, delicious, and best of all, healthy.
If you find yourself struggling to find the time to plan and prepare meals for your family then you MUST give one of these super affordable services a try, which often times charge only a couple dollars a week. Imagine that, a personal meal planner at your disposable for just a few dollars a month. Your time is definitely worth
One company offering this ingenious planning service is Emeals. This company caters to moms who want meals that are healthy. Each week you benefit from a menu plan with recipes for 7 days, a grocery list, and access to a private forum with meals plans for breakfast, lunch, dessert, and snacks. They also provide encouragement in helping you attain your healthy eating goals. Join and start enjoying healthy home-cooked meals every day of the week.
My personal fave of late is Once a Month Meals. I love once a month cooking! I download a meal plan, tweaking it to add or subtract recipes my family will/won’t like, and then I go shopping for all the ingredients. I may end up spending $200-$250 but that is a great deal when you consider that all meals are prepped and ready to go for 20-30 days. All I need to shop for weekly is fresh stuff like milk and eggs. And most of my time spent cooking was done on only one day. Can’t beat that!
No More To-Go is based upon the idea that when we plan poorly we end up getting food to-go. I can attest to the truth in this. I am sure you can too! With this weekly meal plan you get five weekly meals with simple recipes, seasonal and budget ingredients, and an organized shopping list. You can cover Monday thru Friday in a snap.
