Frequently Asked Questions

  • Around 30 minutes to an hour to write the plan and grocery list.
  • 1-2 hours to grocery shop
  • 2-3 hours for meal prep

Figure out what the best timing is for your schedule. For example, a good place to start would be to shop on Thursday or Friday and meal prep on Saturday or Sunday.

Start with your own family recipes, grab recipes from Pinterest or try some of my family favorites from my blog! I will be adding recipe lists and roundups to the blog so you can easily choose recipes for your meal plans!

Go back over the plan and try doing weekly plans instead of the larger plan. It just takes a little simple planning to get back on track.
