Tips for Busy Meal Makers (Page 2)

1. Make a Game Plan

Start by being realistic about how many meals you’ll cook at home in a week. Do you have other plans? Want to eat leftovers for lunch? Next, decide what you want to eat that week. Not a planner? Some of us don’t love to plan entire meals in advance. If that’s the case, then just pick some of the main ingredients. For instance, you may want to roast a chicken one night and then make soup with the leftovers another night. Maybe you’re craving a pizza one night and plan to do something with ground beef another. That’s the start of a game plan.
