Mid-week. Hectic day. Kids had sports and piano lessons, suits went to dry cleaners, your dishes are piled up. It’s late in the evening, you still haven’t fed your family, and you just don’t know what to make!
Sound like every week?
That’s how my week always goes.
That is why I am learning that when it comes to sticking to an effective weekly menu plan, doing prep work during my downtime (Sundays, usually) is critical to eating healthy food all week, and not just when it is convenient! If I don’t take the time on Sunday to prepare the staples in advance, I’m miserable all week! I need to have everything at the ready, so my meals cook and are on the table in 30 minutes or less.
This is why I NEED to make sure I have oven-roasted vegetables on hand.
