A strong focus on meal preparation is an essential when it comes to saving time, money, calories and stress. Whether you’re crammed with taking care of the kids, working, studying or fulfilling other life commitments, vigilant food planning and prep can make dining a much simpler experience. Keep on reading for some expert tips on how to create delicious meals while saving money at the same time.

Tip #1: Plan lunches in advance

Planning lunches at the beginning of the week is the perfect way to prevent eating out. By having pre-made meals, you won’t be tempted to spend extra money and calories at restaurants.

By looking up recipes before you grocery shop, you’ll be certain to pick up all the ingredients you need in one trip. One trip to the market will save you time and money compared to going on multiple trips.

Tip #3: Have consistent themed nights

Themed nights are a great way to add ease and consistency to your meal planning. By planning “Meatless Mondays,” “Taco Tuesdays,” or something of the like, you won’t have to worry about thinking up something new and innovative.

Leftovers are a man’s best friend. By making sure that your recipes feed enough for two nights, you’ll be able to simply reheat meals for half of the week.

Freezing food is a simple technique to make your meals last longer. Always be sure to look up the duration of frozen meals before serving.
