Time Saving Tips for Planning your Menus
The most difficult part of meal planning is making sure you have the ingredients on hand. It also helps when we have stock of key staples available. Here are a couple of helpful ideas that can make meal planning and food prep easier:
- Make basic foods in larger quantities and freeze them in individual servings. This works well for soups, chili, casseroles, granola, pasta sauce and stews.
- Make right for your type pesto and freeze it in ice cube trays so you can pop out one to add to a recipe for flavor enhancement.
- Make double or triple amounts of condiments and dressings to store in the fridge.
- Utilize roasted veggies. Make extra and use the leftovers into the next day’s soup, casseroles, or salads.
- Make a supply of right for your type breadcrumbs and keep in the fridge so they are on hand for a quick casserole topping, used with seafood, poultry, or in a meatloaf.
- Create a flour blend that is right for your type, and keep it in an air tight container. It will make your baking so much easier, just scoop and use.
- Use the weekends to prepare snacks and prep for a few meals by pre-washing your veggies and lettuce.
- A couple of great snacks to keep on hand are Black Strap Cherry Granola, Spicy Rosemary-Nut-Clusters, and good for all types Unibars, which are gluten free and kosher certified.
- When baking breads, muffins, sweet treats, double the batch and freeze the second batch in individuals servings. You can easily pull them out of the freezer, pop them in the oven at 200 degrees for 15 minutes, and they’ll be perfectly toasty and ready to eat. (Plus, the kitchen will smell great!)
- If meal planning is challenging for you, we’ve done the work for you. In the Eat Right for Your Type Personalized Cookbooks, there are weekly meal plans for four weeks. These can be followed or you can use them for inspiration.
