EAT AT HOME
I am a big fan of Eat At Home Meal Plans. Are you stressed about deciding what to make for dinner each night? Sign up for the plans, and get access to 4 separate meal plans each month (Traditional, Whole Food Plant Based, Slow Cooker, and No Flour/No Sugar). Just print the plans, color-coded grocery lists, and recipes you want for the month. Don’t worry, there are so many options, even picky eaters will find something they like.
When it is time for dinner, make that night’s recipe (choices include make-ahead, freezer meals, slow-cooker recipes, and other time-saving strategies) and you are all set.
I know you have more important things to do than meal planning. Let someone else do it for you with Eat At Home Meal Plans. Monthly, quarterly and annual plans are available.
